Seriously, my GF bought me the 15 pack from Amazon for a gift and i used it 3 times so far. First time i couldn't gauge the experience because i sliced some of my lip off, but the other two times i used it was AMAZING.
This is BY FAR the best soap i have ever used, by the time i'm done wiping the stick on my face and building the lather, my whiskers are so soft the razor takes them off easy as arm hair. The smell is not overpowering or offensive, but that could be because my sticks were made in 2009, they may have had time to "age" and lose some scent.
For me, Arko outperforms ALL of my other soaps. And since i have 15 sticks to use, its going to be a long time before my other soaps get touched. I may use my Tabac because i love the smell, but i cannot get a comparable shave with it. If you haven't tried Arko you NEED to find some and give it a try AT LEAST ONCE
Gonna shave AGAIN tonight with the same setup as my last 2 shaves: Arko, Super Adjustable set to 7, C&E BBB, Shark SS blade.
Its like a hot knife through butter!! Its like i floated to a different realm of shaving!!
Still afraid to use my Flair Superspeed since thats what i took the chunk of my lip off with though.....
