+1 Very well put..I have to say, my perception of this soap is one of disappointment.
While it might provide a moisturiser effect to the skin, it sadly lacks in so many other aspects.
To me, it is a Hand soap trying to be a shaving soap!
Personally I found the lather very weak and lacking cushioning and glide.
Scent wise it is a very subdued and almost forgotten in the background.
Sorry this was such a dud!OK, so after receiving the soap yesterday I gave it a quick test palm lather using a synthetic brush. The scent is so faint that it could be branded "unscented".
Sniffing off the puck I can detect some of the scent, but it completely disappears once building the lather.
Ah...the lather. Well...
I was initially optimistic about the lather because the palm lather looked pretty stable.
This morning I attacked the puck with my Paladin "Buck Rogers" (not a slouch) and tried to load it heavy. I loaded the brush for at least a minute but the soap was fighting me and I couldn't "saturate" the brush tips regardless how much I tried. Taking the brush to the lather bowl I got lather that could best be described as frog-spawn (lots of big bubbles.)
Adding a few drops of water and the lather quickly fizzed and disappeared. I tried reloading the brush from the puck and going back to the bowl. The lather sprang back to life and instantly disapated once applied to face.
I had no time this morning to faff about with it, so I rinsed the bowl/brush out and loaded up some Soap Commander "Fortitude" and had zero problems with the shave.
The puck consistency reminds me of Ogallala bay rum pucks. Their suggestion: "load it like you stole it"
I've sent the package on to the next victim. @mr. smith
