I don't mean to be negative, and to each his own, but I really quite disliked this shave soap. I've been wet shaving for a long time, and used many products and for me this was one of the worst. I loved the scent, however I could not, no matter what I did, get a shave without great irritation and after 4 or 5 shaves gave up on this soap entirely. I loved the glass dish / bowl the soap came in, and I say again that I enjoyed the scent, but comfort is #1 for me and this did not suit my skin well. YMMV.
