The texture and scent of this soap are first rate! I also finished up with the after shave splash of the same scent, which is refreshing and leaves you with a great scent throughout the day.
A touch of Bay Rum mixed with a fresh breeze off Lake Michigan. Wonderful moring wake up for a morning shave. Great lather as all Oleo Soapworks products have.
Subtle talc fragrance leaves you smelling clean and dapper.
Suds well, even with hard water. Great lubricity as well.
When Oleo decided to release a Barbershop scented soap they (And when I say them, I mean Vida) definitely put a new and welcome spin on the scent. The soap creates a very thick and cushiony lather with plenty of protection. Did I mention slickness? Holy Cow!!! there was tons of slickness. Overall it was an amazing shave.
Being somewhat new to DE Shaving I have stuck pretty much to the larger commercial soap offerings. After catching a YouTube video from Steve Walker who had gone to the meet up and received one of these and spoke well of it I knew I had to try it. I was very pleased with the sickness of the soap as well as the rich dense lather it creates...definitely offers good protection. As for the scent it has a lovely vanilla/cinnamon kind of scent to it I do enjoy it. This was my first artisan shave soap and I plan on purchasing some of Oleo Soapworks other offerings.
