Italian Barber Acquatico shaving soap

Post by JayDee » Sat Mar 19, 2016 11:05 am

This lovely soap was given to me by my wonderful wife together with two other great items!

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Some of the richest lather a man can want in seconds!

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect, perfect stability.

General skincare: 7.5/10--Fair in that aspect. Not the most moisturizing soap but still acceptable.

Scent: 9/10--Wonderful. It reminds me so much of Acqua di Giorgio edt!

Price: 10/10--As I said, it was a gift!

Would I buy again: 8/10--Perhaps. It's a very good soap.

Its kind of in between soft & hard IMO. Its not overly soft but, is not overly hard either. It whips up a good slick lather from the puck.

I ordered some because it's one of the few IT recipes with some tallow in it, also the mild fragrance. It's nice, but in these warm summer months I've really been enjoying a tub of Proraso green, latest forumula, that came in the same order.

Any Italian Barber soap will beat Poraso any day. I had a red puck & it had poor slickness even Cella soap is way better than this Poraso crud IMO.
