I got a straight razor shave on my face and head at a really cool retro barber shop yesterday. They had this for sale along with some pomades, Col. Conk soaps and a few different A/S splashes ( I ended up with a bottle of Osage Rub!)

Anyway...has anyone tried this Shiner Gold shaving soap? It smells great. It is spearmint (reminds me a little of Wrigley's gum).

I plan to put a review up after I try it today. But would be interested in hearing if others have tried it and how they liked it.

Tried a few test lathers with a friend and it was not favorable in my opinion. Very airy lather and can't get over the fact that they would choose that for a scent. Just my opinion.

My review of Shiner Gold shaving soap (See picture above).

I was anticipating using this soap. I had hoped that it would perform well and be one that I could work into my rotation. However, I was very disappointed by this soap.

Shiner Gold is a glycerin and goat milk soap that has a spearmint scent to it. It is a pleasant white color soap and it a hard soap tha tcomes in its own tin. That makes it easy to get a lot on your brush from the container.

I transferred my brush to a bowl to try to get a good lather out of it. I added water several times but the soap just would not give a rich creamy lather.

I applied the lather I was able to get to my face and it was very thin and dry feeling.

Cost: $12.99

Lather: extremely thin and disappeared quickly.

Protection: non-existant. Very dry soap.

Scent: Not all that bad. When it is lathered the spearmint scent becomes very light. I wondered if it would be like having chewing gum on my face but it wasn't.

Would I but it again: No

I am going to experiment with this soap and see if I can add another soap with it that is tallow based to see if it improves the performance.
