Won a contest and received my first Ginger’s Garden soap. I selected, with her recommendation, the tallow based version of this scent. Set some time aside if you head to her website. The scent list is pretty long. Also there are things there for the ladies and bearded men. Back to the soap! The labeling is water resistant so that is a plus for those of us who post Shave of the Day photos. The inside diameter of the plastic jar is 3 1/4 inches unscrewed. The inside of the jar with the top popped open is 2 7/8 inches. Flipping the top provides a bit of a lip too, but I prefer the diameter of the lid unscrewed. It only took a few seconds to get enough loaded for 3 or 4 passes. I found the scent alluring which has got me to thinking abut ordering the matching aftershave. The performance is top notch! A definite BUY in my opinion.
Started the razor on a 7 and then proceeded to take it down a few notches on each pass after the first. It felt as sharp and smooth as a Feather, which it hasn’t ever felt like that to me, and over all I had a very pleasing shave.
