Col. Conk Bay Rum shaving soap

Item Description

This soap is my dad's number one favorite, and has been for quite a while. I had it about 2 years ago, and I really liked it because it seemed to be a good traditional kind of shaving soap. I recently acquired 2 cakes of this stuff, and I shaved with it yesterday. Although the packaging is about the same as Surrey soap, with a plastic container, this soap sure does more for my skin than Surrey ever did. It produces a nice, slick, pleasant smelling bay rum lather, and makes it easy to get a good close shave. Perhaps the moisturizing can use a little more upgrading, otherwise, I'm a happy camper.

Pros: price, lather
Cons: scent
It's an okay soap, and it lathers fairly well. The scent on the puck I received is almost negligible, but it works and for about $4 for the puck it's definitely one I don't feel buyer's remorse. If you want a great Bay Rum soap, try Captain's Choice.

Pros: Nice lather, smooth shave, very affordable.
Cons: Aroma rather weak, not as I remember bay rum
Nice lather with a smooth, affordable shave, which in my experience has been typical of Colonel Conk soaps. No nicks, no burn, just a nice shave. My only problem with this one is the scent is weak, and not how I remember bay rum. It's not a bad aroma by any means, not sure what it does smell like, just not bay rum. If you are expecting a prominent bay rum aroma you will be disappointed with this, however, if you don't care and are looking for a close comfortable shave, you will be quite happy. Had this had a real bay rum aroma I would have rated it a 10.

Pros: Scent, ease of lather, protection

If this performed as well as the Almond or the Amber it would be great.
