Does anyone with sensitive skin own I Coloniali soap? I have very sensitive skin, but I'll really like to try the soap.

There's no way to know if it will work for you without trying it yourself. It's a top notch soap in my opinion. There is a small amount of menthol in it and if you are sensitive to that it may not be for you.

Sam is spot on... it is one of my favorites but there is a mild amount of menthol in the mix. I don't have sensitive skin and the post shave quality is remarkable but you'll never know unless you give it a go.

There was a barely used puck with terra cotta bowl in the BST that was a great deal as FYI...

Well, I cannot use creams.  TOBS sensitive is doable. MWF not good for me.

At least Proraso Green is good for me.

Coloniali shaving soap works for me. It is not a sure thing, I felt a little tingle once. But try it!

I have what I would believe as somewhat sensitive skin to really citrusy scents and oils and to eucalyptus. Everyone can have different sensitivities to certain oils within the fragrance or in the soap ingredients itself. It's always good to troubleshoot what is causing the issue. I have I Coloniali Mango in the terracotta bowl and it works fantastic. It's one of the slickest soaps I have ever used,  and very moisturizing ( I have very dry skin) with no problems at all on my skin. The scent is the only thing that deters people away from it.

That has more menthol than the Coloniali in my opinion.

It is a great soap, very slick and great performance with menthol, post shave feel is very good too.  Lucky for me I like the scent.  As others have said the only way to know if it works for you is to try it.

I got it. Really good for me. Strong scent, great creamy lather, and very slick. Best of all, no skin reaction.

I tend to have skin that can be irritated by scent on occasion, and i Coloniali gave me no issues.  It was a great product.
