Review of River Valley Trading Chapmunk shaving soap

Post by JayDee » Mon Mar 19, 2018 1:15 pm

This is another wonderful South African-made soap!

Ease of lathering: 10/10--One of the easiest latherers I ever saw!

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect stability!

General skincare: 9/10--So soothing and gentle. A bit of a cooling effect as well. Also contains chamomile.

Scent: 8.5/10--Lovely spearmint which is so refreshing.

Price: N/A--I traded for it. I really don't know the price.

Would I buy again: 10/10--Gladly!

My second soap from South Africa and I think it's great. This Chapmunk has all the right ingredients in it like chamomile, for example to give a wonderful post-shave feeling. It's so refreshing it's so easy to lather, and it sure smells great!

A very special thanks to my good friend Mo for his generosity. Unfortunately River Valley Trading doesn't sell internationally yet, but hopefully soon.

Jeff, this sounds like a nice shaving soap. Knowing that there is an active South African wet shaving forum makes me curious as to what they say about the old formula Williams shaving soap that was made there and recently discontinued just a couple of years ago.

Hi Gary,

The Williams stick was discontinued a couple of years ago but River Valley Trading stocks the Roseline soap which is a good take on the scent of the Williams stick that was also rosy. This Chapmunk is fantastic and so are all the other RVT soaps I have!
