Review - Citrus Mint Blaster Shaving Soap

Review
Company: Tiki Bar Soap, LLC.
Product: Citrus Mint Blaster
Founder: Amanda
Amazing Shave !

Packaging: 
Citrus Mint Blaster comes in a dark plastic tub with a screw on lid. The label on top is coated to protect it from pealing or damage. I had a hard time with the label the white type is almost impossible to read. Like Amanda I also love things Tiki and really like the company logo it would make a great t-shirt. I’m not sure if what I received was new or old packaging. I ordered mine from Maggards and the image of the product was a tin. But what I received was totally different. After checking the website it does say what is pictured is going to be a tub not a tin. I know its what on the inside that counts but confusing none the less. By the way the label on the tin looks easer to read then the tub.


Scent:
When removing the lid you know this is a citrus scent it’s right up front so if you’re not into citrus then this soap is not for you . The notes are Orange, Lemon, Lime and Peppermint for the top and Spearmint for the bottom. On the scent scale from one to ten this would be a 4.5 to 5 out of the tub and a 5 to 5.5 while lathering.

Lathering:
Lathering was no problem for this soap. It was very easy to load the brush and create rich face lather.  The slickness and glide remained for the entire shave, the big surprise was about a min or two into my face lather I notice something happening, my face was felling wonderful and alive a clean sensation. I’ve only experienced this with one other product before it was a body wash called Dr. Bronners Magic Soap (Peppermint).  I might be wrong but I think it’s the Peppermint and menthol combination that makes this feel so good on your face. I even did a third pass I liked it so much.

I have to say it was one of the good shaves we all look for a very close shave. Amanda sure has a winner here I would highly recommend this to any citrus lover.
