New Seaforth! Shave Soap by Spearhead Shave Co

Well, I've used both my samples now....Heather and Spiced. I definitely prefer the Spiced scent to the Heather. Heather reminds me too much of Fine America Blend which I don't like. I'm not sure what's going on, but with both soaps my lather was a bit thin. I didn't use a lot of water (at least I don't think I did) and the lather looked good in my bowl, but went on thin. Is this normal with these soaps? It could be I didn't scoop enough product out of the sample container, but it looked like an ample amount (nickel size). Performance was ok even with the thin lather. Not super slick, but works.

I'm used to PAA which lathers up like nobody's business and is the slickest stuff I used. The Seaforth was not even close. I have enough product for several shaves so I'll play around with it a bit more. I do like the Spiced scent and hope I can get it to perform better.

More soap is the answer but the lather is not going to be that dense pasty lather that PAA soaps make. I have 2 of the CK-6 formulas. This is a more high structure lather, it feels lighter and silky and stands taller on your face, more like canned foam.

Ok....good to know. I could tell as I was swirling my brush around that it was a different kind of lather compared to the CK-6... but was surprised by the thinness as it went on my face. I'll keep at it....appreciate your input.

I'd put a 20 on your not having used enough product. Seaforth! samples are much smaller than Maggard and Shavedash samples. I only got 3 shaves out of mine.

Thank you....I most likely didn't use enough. I'd guess with the amount I used I could get about 4 or 5 shaves out of the sample. I'll scoop out more next shave.

Here's how I used mine, no joke:

I am so stinkin'cheap!
I took a damp brush, squeezed the tip and rubbed it on the TINY sample of Heather that @MyOldKentuckyHome so graciously gave to me.

I then rubbed it on my damp face and it EXPLODED with the best lather I have EVER used. (I know, I love Arko, so my judgement is questionable!)

Love the scent.

I have enough shaving stuff to supply half of the Newbs here for a month, and this product is the ONLY one I'm tempted to fight with my lovely War Department over buying.
