Musgo Pre-Shave Soap

Item Description

I purchased this Musgo pre-shave soap from Alfred at Fendrihan a while ago and have been meaning to write a review for sometime. What can I say other than I was impressed by this glycerin soap. The scent of the soap is great a lemon/lime scent is a perfect balance that gets one prepared for the morning shave. It lathers well and does seem to soften the beard, I leave the lather on my face and use it as a base and then apply the initial lather of my soap or cream. I have found that the soap leaves a nice slick base that assists me during my first pass. As this soap was not expensive at all and lasts a long time I would certainly recommend it to all B&B gents. :biggrin:

A bit pricey for soap, but as I only shave once or twice a week, it lasts for months and months (I keep it in a travel soap case in the shower so it doesn't disintegrate on days I don't use it.)

I'm afraid I'm a bit too new to the wet-shaving thing (less than 3 months) to know how effective it is--it lathers really easily, and feels much more slick than regular bar soap or body wash. But, it was recommended to me, and I really, really enjoy the scent.

I got it on amazon for $9 shipped (hooray for Prime shipping!)

Price: I can't comment, since another user off the B/S/T threw this in for free with a razor.

Quailty: It burns! It burns my slightly sensitive skin! It almost scared me off MWF and Feathers b/c it burned so bad and didn't become noticeable till the second or third pass -- it couldn't possibly be the pre-shave, could it? It completely ruins any shave I use it on.

Latherability: You only really need to lather enough to smear some on your beard and let it soak--not that important, so I won't rate it on this.

Moisturizing: I've got pretty moist skin, so I don't notice moisturizing/drying effects the vast majority of the time, so any rating I'd give would be pretty worthless.

Scent: I really didn't care for it. In fact, I rather disliked it from the beginning, even before it was associated with intense pain.

Efficacy: It did soften my beard considerably.

Packaging: The puck (bar? ball?) I got off B/S/T didn't come in its original packaging, so I can't comment.
