Yesterday I received a lovely gift in the mail from two wonderful friends. It's the new limited edition Stirling Glacial MITA soap which is a hyper-mentholated version of the regular version. All I can say is "Rod, you out-did yourself. You are pure genius!"
Here is my review of it:
Ease of lathering: 10/10--It's so easy to lather. Even easier than the regular version which is also super-easy!
Longevity of lather: 10/10--Relax, take your time, and enjoy - this lather lasts forever!
General skincare: 10/10--Brilliant. If you think the other Glacials are cold, this one may even be a bit colder!
Scent: 9/10--Exactly the same as the regular MITA. Citrusy and tropical. The menthol comes out more.
Price: 10/10--Mine was a gift but Rod's soaps are GREAT value as we all know!
Would I buy again: 10/10--Being a Stirling lover, a menthol lover, and a Glacial lover - absolutely!
The main thing to remember about this soap is that it's so powerfully-mentholated like all the Glacials, it's necessary to keep the lather away from your eyes because the menthol fumes are sure to make them tear. I also find this soap has a slightly stronger freezing sensation than the other Glacials. Perhaps it's just the power of suggestion but I did notice the menthol effect seemed to kick in a bit quicker and it seemed a tiny bit heavier. You cannot beat the post-shave care that Rod's soaps give because they make your face feel like you went to a spa!
