- West Coast
The item was as advertised
The item was as advertised and competitively priced. Shipping on the other hand was miserably slow. I purchase from West coast shaving because it was in California and expected that it might be a fairly quick turnover. On the contrary. The item shipped from back east.
Great soap, great crock!
The thing just feels classic. This is my first time wet-shaving and this soap has worked great. I love that I get a free face-wash in while I shave.
Oldie but Goodie
This is now one of my new favorites. Not sure why others are having trouble lathering. I used a synthetic brush and had a great shave. Will definately make this one of my regular soaps. Thanks Mithcell's!
Overall quality is great
I've never used a shaving soap before, but I heard that it helped to get you a close shave while also being more sustainable. And this product had such good reviews, I decided to try this one out. Let me first say, the quality on this is excellent. It really does allow for a close shave, it doesn't foam too much and my legs feel a lot smoother after use. My only complaint is about the ceramic bowl the soap comes with. The soap while excellent can get a little slick and when you put it back in the bowl, it'll start to fuse with the bottom of the bowl while it dries. That makes it a nightmare to get out of the bowl for future use. I'm experimenting to see what can be done about that, like maybe lining the bottom of the bowl with some parchment paper. But I think it's something worth mentioning. And that's why I gave this product four stars instead of five. But overall, I'm very happy. I think this soap is gonna last me a good while, and I likely will be buying it again in the future.
Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap
There is a simple purity to this shaving soap. With a very sharp straight razor the soap gives a closer than usual shave with no abrasion.
