Nice lather, a bit sticky, and smell a bit bubblegum-like but a good soap
Lathers great, smells like toothpaste
I wish I liked the smell of this more...it really makes me feel like I'm shaving with toothpaste. Thick, smooth, lathery toothpaste. The shave is awesome, though...I debated giving this three stars, but decided the shave is so good I'd keep it at four. I'd definitely try some of the other scents, though.
Lathers quickly, smells great (and smells natural), and is easy to wash off. It doesn't have a peppermint tingle like other peppermint creams I've tried, but I do really like this product nonetheless.
WCS is on to something
I think all wet-shavers that use WCS (West Coast Shaving) are impressed by several aspects. The website is beautiful, they carry pretty much everything you can think of, and....oh yeah....their house brand products can stand tall with the old favorites. What truly impresses me about this soap is not necessarily the scent (don't get me wrong, it's awesome), but the formula. This is one of the finest vegan-formulas I've ever used. The lather is thick, thirsty, smooth, and efficient. I really want to stress "efficient," because I get often frustrated with lathers that thin out before I've had a chance to get 3 passes in. I know a lot of people argue that you should just load more soap if you need to, but in my opinion soaps these days should have no problem staying affective for 3 passes once you've loaded up the brush well. No problem with this soap. 3 passes is a breeze. Slickness is good. Is it the slickest I've used? No. But it's no slouch and nothing to complain about. The protection is excellent as long as you have soap on your face. This is not a soap that leaves a layer of protection behind so you can easily touch up some small areas...make sure you're giving your razor soap to work with here. The scent is simple and very pleasant. It's basic spearmint...nothing fancy, but that's ok because it totally works as a shaving soap scent. I DO wish however that it was mentholated. If that were the case, this would hands down be my favorite soap. Naturally, because this is a house brand, the pricing is very competitive. This gives this soap a good value rating for me. I only ask WCS one thing: PLEASE release more scents in this formula. The 5 that are out now are great, and we're ready for some more!
