.............i purchased her Goat Milk Frankincense and Myrrh Shaving Soap with Charcoal.

........it lathered very nicely and the 'after shave' face feel was very nice........

.......the ingredients are:  glycerin base, coconut butter, coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter, beeswax, castor oil, aloe vera, jojoba oil, french clay, vitamin e
........eva also included an extra soap....

The ingredients list is strange.  I assume it means that she starts with a commercial melt and pour soap like Brambleberry and then adds the waxes, oils, butters, and clay?   And, I suppose, the scent, too, although there are no scent ingredients listed.

I tried several of her shaving soaps, and they're a pretty good product for the money. If you like robust fragrances, I think my favorite was her Arabian Spice.

Odly enough i was browsing her etsy page last night. A friend of mine bought 5 soaps from her and i was very skeptcial about it, but as it tuns out, he send me a picture of a great lather or his face.

So i believe it is a nice soap. Heard good things about the fragrances,too, that they're fairly strong, wich is good for me, as i hate faint scents.

What i disliked, was the shipping charges. 22 bucks for 5 small soaps, shipped to Brazil. Wich is almost as much as the soaps thenselves. But well...thats not her fault, of course.

I got her rose scent half a year ago and it wouldn't lather at all.  I hit it with different brushes and still just a very thin lather.  Scent was way too strong for me.  YMMV.
