Just tried for the first time today. Product lathers nicely and a little goes a very long way. The lather also stays on your face, good consistency and thickness. Very good lubrication and cushioning. I almost was clean shaven in the first pass, second pass was like butter.
Good value, too. I got this on special offer for $6. But even at $11 it's a good value, comparable with Proraso, and it will last me months as I use this in rotation with Proraso Green and Pacific Shaving Caffeinated.
I gave it 4 out of 5 as the fragrance is a bit overpowering compared to Proraso Green and Pacific Shaving. I could not use this then wear cologne. Not a deal breaker, but a little less fragrance would be nice.
Thanks Hal! The Scent of the Charcoal is definitely "present", The Bergamot has a less fragrant presentation.
