Black Ship Grooming - Captain Joe Shave Soap!

Hello everyone! Today I am reviewing Black Ship Grooming's, Captain Joe shave soap!

I am a huge coffee fan, I got to be drinking coffee everyday, otherwise I will go insane. I am sure many folks who post in the Cafe forum can relate. lol - So naturally, I went on the hunt for a shave soap that smelled like coffee.

Container:

This is your typical plastic container, with a flat top, bowl shaped on the bottom, uses a threaded lid, a plastic seal divider, and has loud and proud labeling. I guess if your voyage is on the ship of the flying Dutchman, tentacles might be your only reality, to enjoying your coffee regimen. While I may not take pride in humanity, I sure do appreciate our appendages. The side labeling also has some elegant flare, that grabs your attention as well.

Size:

This product is measured in weight ounces. Its listed on the container as 4OZ, but I measured 4OZ and 1/4 more. Its basically your standard small size puk container, not like the 5.8OZ big boys you get from Stirling.

Soap Type:

This is a soft based soap, not like your hard puks, so this is basically considered a croap. As you can see, for comical reasons, BSG includes a coffee bean in the soap, to re-iterate that this is a coffee scented soap. While highly unnecessary, I do find it funny. You could use your finger to scoop out some of this soap, or, do what I do, and use a bullion spoon.

SCENT:

My initial impressions of the scent were slight disappointment, as it didn't smell like the coffee grounds themselves. However, I can say, it does technically smell like brewed coffee that has creamer in it. So, in that way, the scent is not a total loss, just not what I thought it was going to be. The scent strength is not overly strong, infact, I'd say its a bit on the weak side, however, for some, they would see that as a good thing. The scent is slightly more developed after the soap has been bloomed into a lather.

PERFORMANCE:

The performance of the soap is not as good as many hard soaps that I've tried. Proraso shave soap is slicker, so is Captains Choice shave soaps, and Stirling shave soaps. Tabac completely outperforms CJ by miles! Having said that, the soap still provided some slickness, in order to perform the shave at hand. I did whip the lather into a yogurt consistency, in order to give the soap the best chance.

CONCLUSION:

Since I was looking for a coffee scented soap, I am not 100% satisfied with this soap, however, its not bad at all! If your looking for a coffee scented soap, go ahead and try this one out, you might like it! If your looking for a high performance soap, just avoid this one. My face feels good after using it though, and my goodness do I smell good right now! This is a good product, just not an amazing one. I am giving this soap a 🌟🌟🌟 out of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars.
