The soap lathers quickly and provides a nice slickness to your face. The soap is a performer. The scent is my favorite item about this soap. There are a ton of great performing soaps and creams on the market so I'm interested in the scent. Ocean really does to me have the scent of an ocean beach. It is really unique that WC could come up with that scent but they did and it is wonderful to shave with in the mornings. Congrats to WC.
