Mama Bear's Dragon's Blood shaving soap

Item Description

I received this soap from the generosity of a very nice fella on this board, and I'm very soon going to be sending him some goodies as a trade. When I first opened the bowl to have a sniff, I almost went through the ceiling. It's smells absolutely great! Spicy, exotic, and fiery! The lather is rich, creamy and foamy, the overall shave is smooth and comfortable, the moisturizing and skincare is very good too, although a tad less than a few other soaps I have. Still, definitely a heck of a good shaving soap.

This is my first rating so I will try to be as informal as possible. First of all, I've been using Mama Bear's Dragon's Blood Shaving Soap almost exclusively for over a month and I have to say that this is the best smelling ANYTHING I have ever smelled. I say anything just because that's what I mean, anything. The scent alone is simply amazing but when I follow a shave with regular store brand witch hazel as an aftershave, it turns incredibly amazing. To best describe the scent, I would have to say it's peppery cloves with a hint of burnt wood and sweetness.

I give this soap 10's all the way across. Performance wise, I've used lots of different soaps from Tabac, Speick, ToBS, Trumpers, AoS, Williams and VDH but this seems to out perform them all to me. I've tried to imagine how it could perform any better but short of wielding the razor for me, I cannot see how it possibly could. Since I shave in the shower, I also regularly bath with it. Again, it's incredible as a bath soap too. Best of all, my wife really likes the way I smell after a shower.:w00t:

I am about halfway through my first puck and I'm going to buy another along with the bath soap and room spray soon. I truly hope that Sue decides to keep this in her line-up. Any burn that some people get from this soap is surely from the clove like ingredient that is in it. It is only very slight and minute, somewhat enjoyable really, and should not detract from the otherwise astounding scent and performance of this otherwise wonderful product.

Got this a while back and I like it so much I just had to review it. The price is great as are all of the Mama Bear soaps, I only wish I had bought a few other scents and saved on shipping. There will be more MB soaps on the way soon!
The scent of this soap is great and there's plenty of it too:w00t:. I enjoy the scent so much that I usually don't use a scented aftershave in my post shave routine with this, just a splash of witch hazel and a bit of unscented face lotion.
The lather from this soap whips right up easily with any of my badger brushes after letting about a teaspoon of water sit on the surface for a few minutes and loading up a soaked and then well shaken brush. I get tons of thick, rich, slick, meringue textured lather with very little effort. There is always plenty of lather left in the bowl and the brush even after a four pass shave with some extra touch-ups for difficult areas of the neck. Did I mention slick? This lather is slippery as greased glass, the blade just glides right over my skin and the richness of the thick lather provides great cushion. I've only gotten a couple drops of blood in four or five shaves with this soap and those were due more to my being over zealous with the touch ups on my neck than a lack of quality in the lather.
The only rating I gave less than a 10 is for moisturizing, the soap doesn't dry my face out like some others have, but it doesn't really seem to moisturize either. I can live with that as I usually only need to moisturize in the winter since my skin is a bit on the oily side.
Overall, this is a great product and I can't wait to get more Mama Bear soaps to try!:thumbup1::thumbup1:

This is absolutely one of my favorite soaps that Mama Bear produces, the scent is incredible. I am sorry to hear that some people are having a reaction to it and that it is being discontinued, I am going to have to stock up before it is gone forever.
