My wife picked this up for me. It was just a few dollars. On the box, it says for washing and shaving. So I gave it a try. Not very slick for me. My razor wanted to bounce across my face. When I rinsed the soap off, my skin felt tight. It makes a fair washing soap, but my experience shaving was not pleasant. Someone else may have better luck. The tea tree scent is good, but that's all it has going for it as far as shaving goes. If someone has better luck, I may be willing to give it another go.
