I recently purchased a shave cube for the CAR HydroLast line of products from their website enchanteonline.com I must admit that at first I was very uncertain that it would be anything special, those worries were put to rest quite fast upon using the bar. You have the choice to get the cube in either a 400g block or as 3 separate pieces. As a face wash its great. Very lathery and not drying or stripping at all. Its scent is very subtle, very much light the olive oil that its consisted of. As a shampoo, the hair sucks up the lather and rinses clean giving your hair a nice sheen and consistency. As a shave soap, which most use it for solely, its great. You lather it up on your brush, then add some shaving paste, just a bit. Its suggested that you use HydroLast shave paste, but I just toss in some Trumpers Violet to my brush and it works just as well. This stuff is by far the best soap ive used. Better than Tabac, Mama Bear's and QED easily, and its very hard for me to admit that. When paired with the facial toner and AS conditioner, you simply put, will have skin you never thought possible. Results are really there in an obvious manner. The price is steep for the line, but in all means worth it and highly recommended.
