Recently Michelle sent me some of her new shaving soap to do a review on( I have no affiliation to the maker, company, or product). The soap is bayrum scented and smells lovely. However this is not your normal spicy bay rum its alot smoother and crisp smelling. The smell reminds me of gingerbread cookies, which is perfect for this time of year. [/URL]
This soap is a soft soap or a semi hard cream. I find it to be softer than vitos and very malleable and sticks well to the bottom of a bowl or cup. This soap is also a Tallow based soap made with the fat from grass fed beef. I used a vulfix 404 with as much water as i always start with just very damp and begin to load like i do with almost always do. I did about 40 swirls and face lathered with it.
The lather this soap makes is spot on in many ways. The first way is that it is very slick and has a good glide to it, but even though it is slick it still had cushion. To me it was about as good a combination of the two you can get. The next good thing about the lather is that it did not dry out fast like some others. I had this lather on my face way longer than i would if i was shaving. I took about 20 crappy pictures before i got these 3 good ones below. It also moisturized my skin to really well. I think we have a new product that will become a b&b favorite for many, esp those who are big fans of tallow based products.
The ingredients are as follows: Tallow,Water,castor seed oil, potassium hydroxide, shea fruit, avocado oil, palm oil, glycerin, fragrance, sodium hydroxide, stearic acid, aloe vera leaf juice, bentonite, wheat protein, silk.
