I put "N/A" as I received this soap for free. This soap isn't too hard and isn't too soft. It was really easy to build a lather (I like to build the lather directly on my face) and the consistency on my face was really good too; sometimes though, the bubbles break easily, sometimes they don't, I haven't identified what causes that because I always use the same routine. The lather is thick but not slimy like I've seen with other soaps. I did two passes with one "load" on my brush, the same I get with my current Edwin & Jagger soap.I love the smell, it's fresh, not too strong, like it should be. It keeps my skin moisturized, that's one of its strongest point.Overall, a pretty good soap, I just wish it was available in a puck size to fit in a mug; I build the lather on my face so holding the wet soap bar is not the best. Definitely worth a try.Edit: For some reason the website keeps puting "NO" under "Would you recommend this product", I mean "YES", so if you see "No" don't bother, I do recommend it.
