This was one of my first soaps, and I wasn't all that impressed. Since learning how to use soaps better, I decided I would work up a lather with this soap tonight. WOW!
It took hardly anytime to work up a lather that literally started oozing out of my Georgetown scuttle. The amount of lather alone was staggering. I easily had enough for 4 passes (and lather to spare). However, the performance was what took my breath away. It stayed extremely well hydrated, was thick and cushioned like a cream, and slick as a quality soap.
This quite possibly could have been my best experience with a soap... I can't say enough good things about the performance.
The vanilla mixes very well with the sandalwood as well. With a nice, warm lather, I think that this is a truly amazing product. I highly recommend this
Excellent soap, lathers like crazy, slick and very rich. I'm a bit dissapointed that the smell isn't strong enough. The initial smell from the tub is very yummy, subtle, but the smell gets very faint to nearly non existing once you lather it on your face. Maybe I had an old batch or one that wasn't made with more scent. I did give the soap a lower number for the scent. Not because I don't like the scent or smell but because it's to faint and not strong enough. But besides that it's a very nice soap.
All of Mama Bears soaps are great. As long as she makes them Ill be buying them. The two soaps that come to mind are her Old Spice and Rosemary Mint, they both lather up quickly and are very thick. You just cant go wrong!Did I mention they smell Great!! One tub lasts about a month and I use a liberal amount.
Well have to say that immediatelly after you open the package you would be astonished by its great smell. I found myself smelling this soap for about 20 minutes and still could not get enough. Latherability of this soap is also great but had quite problems for the first time. This, however, was my problem as I never lathered shaving soap. I only had problem lathering it in a bowl but when trying to lather it on my face it worked great! After I finished my shave I noticed NO irritation (shaved against grain) and even in the area of adam's apple there was no red skin. Simply superb shave. As to the mositurizing ability of this soap - I forgot to put on my aftershave because the skin was so hydrated I did not have to use any aftershave!
This would be my everyday companion and am looking forward to it. If you compare the price to the quality of this product you get more than you pay for!!! Really great stuff Sue!!
For $6.99, this soap was impossible for me to resist. In fact I purchased a few to satisfy my SSAD.
This stuff is amazing and just feels much better than my QED rose. All of MamaBear's soaps lather, smell, feel, and shave excellently.
SCENT I was very surprised with the smell. I was expecting the vanilla to make this too sweet, but that just wasn't the case. The vanilla compliments the sandalwood VERY well and neither is overbearing.
Thick, Smooth, and luxurious... this stuff has got it all!
Here are some pictures (excuse the poor quality, my bathroom is very dark for some reason)
Brush is nice and charged with the soapy goodness.
About 5 swirls in my $1.99 bowl I got at target.
15-20 more swirls in the target bowl
around 20 more swirls and we have the finished product.
Very thick stuff, it took a while for the lubrication of the soap to wash away under my faucet.
This is amazing stuff, I know I have said that a billion times, but it's true. I recommend that everyone try one of her excellent soaps. It's so good I'm going to knock out all my other soaps out of this week's rotation so I can fully enjoy this wonderful soap.
