Review: OHWTO Pink Slip Shaving Soap
Upon opening this soap I was greeted with a kind of woodsy floral scent. It wasn’t overpowering at all. When using this soap you don’t have to worry about the scent lingering after. I’ve used this soap both foaming it up with my hands and with one of those scratchy long bath towels. It doesn’t lather up much using it with your hands, but with the bath towel and I imagine poofs, gloves, etc. it foams up a lot. Either way it works well for shaving. If you leave in the bath or shower and it’s constantly wet, it will like most soaps dissolve into nothingness. I highly recommend this shaving soap. It’s wonderful. Previously I was using Black Magic for shaving soap(which also works well), this soap definitely works better as shaving soap.
Pink Slip Shaving soap is currently available online here at OHWTO.COM. For $5.95 you will receive a dark-pinish 4oz square bar. This soap came in a stiff cellophane bag sealed with a sticker stating what the product was and what company it was from. Then it was wrapped in saran wrap with the ingredient sticker. One bar should last around 2 months. This product is vegan.
Official description:Originally formulated as a gentle facial soap for more mature skin, skin which might not have appreciated Black Magic facial soap, Pink Slip was built on a different base and with different Essential Oils, for different needs. Then I tried it as a shaving soap and it was all over, heh. This stuff is AWESOME for shaving with.
Starting with an already-great vegan-friendly soap base, I added French pink clay, vitamin E, Chamomile, and a cheery blend of essential oils- Geranium Bourbon, Lemon, Peru Balsam, Frankincense, Lavener, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot. The scent is not overpowering, and while as a perfume it might be more of a woman’s scent, as a soap it’s completely unisex.
The trick to getting the best performance out of this soap is a nylon bath pouf. You know the ones I’m talking about, I think we all have one in our showers, or have at some point. I’ve used my usual bristle brush, and washcloths, and even just my hands, all of which worked okay to varying degrees, but to really make the best lather, the bath pouf is superior. A rich, thick, pink (hence the name) and long-lasting lather comes out of those things when used with this soap that’ll put any commercial shaving foam to shame.
Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, Safflower oil, Vegetable glycerin, Purified water, Sodium hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan oleate, Soybean protein, Wheat protein, Proprietary essential oil blend, French pink clay, Vitamin E, Chamomile.
Final thoughts, Would I purchase this again? Yes, yes I would. I love this soap. I like that the scent isn’t overpowering, I like that it feels like silk on wherever it is that you’re shaving. Since it lasts so long, the cost is so minimal it’s not even funny. Ahem for those who use it on the nether regions it does not irritate. Just saying… Anyways, you want this soap, you really do. Shoo, go on, go buy it! Shop description is spot on.
With this soap I highly recommend some sort of soap holder so it can dry out between uses. I am a fan of wooden soap holders such as these They’re pretty cheap. I also recommend the razors from Dollar Shave Club. Husband and I get the $9 razors. BES HING.EVER
