- Aftershave – Family Dollar ‘Brut’ version
Someone on one of the Facebook shaving groups had asked about Green Mountain Soaps and I posted a response but I can’t find it now and I can’t remember what I said or what anyone may have said afterwards. There are a couple of pluses and negatives in my opinion about this soap. The positives are the price and slickness. It is slick for sure and at $2.82 an ounce it fits my affordability requirement, though on the higher end. The downside, and this is MY opinion, is I bought this scent because I love limes, but I just can’t smell it. Not even sure what vetiver is but I suppose it is more like that. Despite the slickness when wet, the lather starts to dissipate fairly quickly so taking my time is not an option unless I want to constantly reapply lather. I can add more water but then it becomes bubbly. The third thing is the shape. It’s round. You have to mill/shred it into a container for loading your brush. That’s just not practical.
Did I get a good shave today? Yes. I am BBS but there was two weepers that stopped quickly with just cold water. The soap does work, but it remains at the bottom of my useable soap lists.
I think I have this Merkur 11c figured out. Sweet.
My intention was to use up this aftershave as it wasn’t a favorite but the more I use it, the more I like it. What gives?
