Good product, high quality, and the bowl is a great bonus
Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2014
What is it:
Shaving soap and wooden bowl with cover.
What I liked:
First - the soap:
Great quality and scent. First time I've used shaving soap, first time using Sandalwood scent - and I can't imagine anything better!
The smell is strong, but not overpowering - I really enjoy it, but it will leave a lingering odor in your bathroom (so if you have someone in your home with an allergy/sensitivity - be aware!)
The soap generates a great lather (I use an Edwin Jagger brush), and will certainly last a LONG time (especially compared to shaving cream!) - I only shave a couple of times per week, but have barely made a dent after a few weeks of use. Wouldn't shock me to see it last 6+ months.
Second - the bowl:
Better quality than I was expecting. It's wooden, with a nice lid / top, and complements the decor of any bathroom nicely.
No issue getting the bowl wet (so far at least), and should be re-usable with refills once the soap runs out. Not sure what other soap brands would fit in the bowl, but you can purchase Art of Shaving soaps on their own without the bowl, so at least that's an on-going option.
What I didn't like:
Nothing, I love everything about this product.
Would I buy it again/recommend it?
Yes, good product, would absolutely buy again and recommend!
