Found this soap was a tad slow to lather up the first couple of shaves. Then on the 3rd shave it seemed to lather uo real well using an old boar brush that was at one time made availabke to members of the Badger and the Blade.Razor used was a futur clone. Scent is awesome and lasts a pretty good amount of time.The glide was smooth and left me with an awesome bbs shave on 3 passes.Add moisture to this soap slowly.When I bought the soap I also bought the aftershave in the same awesome scent
Another great product by the Captain
I purchased the Captains Choice Sandalwood shaving cream and aftershave. The lather produced is awesome is very thick, cushioning, slick, and provides a great skin feel during the shave. I have not nicked myself at all and my face feels good during the shave. The scent is more of a woodsy scent. Think dried wood that was soaked in a sandalwood scent. It's a bare bones scent of sandalwood rather than a cologne scent. The after shave feels great, it provides a mild sting after you apply it but the face feel you get is really good. I like the aftershave with any sandalwood soap that I have. The scent is exactly the same as the soap. This scent is a discrete scent that will last for a few hours. The protection for the face lasts all day.
Great Smell, Not A Great Shave
My last shaving cream/soap was Crown Shaving Co. cream and it was wonderful, but I wanted to try a soap this time and get something not as minty smelling. The smell of this product was exactly what I wanted, a nice manly sandalwood smell-good stuff. However, using the product left me with very bad razor-burn on my neck-beard area. The Crown Shaving Co. cream never left me with that. I wish I would have just stayed with the Crown Shaving Co. cream.
When I first got this and smelled it in the container I didn't think I was going to like it at all. It felt a bit too perfumy for my liking. But I decided to actually try before actually passing final judgement on it. I was really glad that I did, when this stuff gets on the skin the scent actually changes subtly and does smell pretty darn good. I didn't realize this was a soap instead of a cream and used way to much the first time, but this stuff really lathers well. I would recommend this as a good alternative to what ever soap you are currently using.
