I was in Walmart the other day and saw a small puck of Shaving soap. Ok, that’s nice. But wait, there’s more…it’s only $1.50. Hmm…I wonder if this stuff is worth fooling around with? Well, let’s find out.
So, I took it home and one afternoon I tried it out. It didn’t do to bad. It lathered reasonably well. I tried both a Boars hair and a Badger hair brush. The Badger hair brush did a much better job on creating a lather.
I placed the puck of William’s in a coffee cup and swirled the damp brush in the coffee cup in order to load the brush. I then created a lather in my berry bowl from my DIY scuttle. The first time that I did this, I had a bunch of lather. I shaved with the soap and it did alright. My face felt a bit dry afterwords but the soap itself didn’t give me any problems while shaving.
But then, I added Glycerin! What an amazing difference. The amount of lather was sufficient for 10 lathers (I experimented to determine this). It also, didn’t feel quite as dry afterwords.
All in all, for the cost, it’s a really good product. I’m impressed with it.I plan on always having a few pucks of this stuff under the sink.
