Brutalt Bra shaving soap - a jewel from Norway!

Post by JayDee » Sun Sep 27, 2015 8:39 am

This may have been the longest I waited for a package to arrive but it was sure worth the wait. Is this soap ever awesome! (use a smaller brush because the container is small!)

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Explodes into rich lather immediately.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Fantastic. Perfect stability for multi-pass shaves.

General skincare: 9/10--Very gentle, comfortable as well as moisturizing.

Scent: 8/10--Mild, in fact very mild lavender which becomes more noticeable while lathering and shaving. Nice!

Price: 5/10--Had it been any other soap I would have said "no thanks." 22,00$ USD is pretty high, no?

Would I buy again: 9/10--Despite such a high price, yes I feel I would because I love this soap.

It's not often you hear about anything from Norway other than the Fitjar products, but here is something I would definitely recommend if you want to try something unique and unusual. Brutalt Bra (Brutally Good) soap has a mild, but very pleasant lavender scent, (to my nose) it lathers so easily and richly with a post-shave feeling which is relaxed and very comfortable. I just wish the damned price was lower and that the tin was bigger!
