Thanks to my good friend,Freddy,I have the chance to try out the new Boots shaving stick reformulation.I did try in the past the Boots stick,with a slightly different formulation with good results,and I was waiting to check this new one.
The old stick formulation is like the Boots shaving bowl and puck refill,and this is t
he new one :
Im pretty sure that Boots shaving soaps are made by the same company/factory where other top leading UK brands get their shaving soaps too.
This shaving stick comes with a holder and a protective cup (like La Toja or Lea) and with 50 g of soap.It cost around a pound,but sometimes you can get 2 for a pound.Boots stores are easy to find in many UK cities.
It seems that some people have a hard time making lather from this new stick and also arent very happy with its scent.Well,the scent,for me,its fine : not the best,either the worst (Arko coulnt be beat on that ) but its really easy to make lather from it,and its a great lather,let me tell you.
This is a pic with the Vie Long foroafeitado finest badger brush, after I load it for 20 seconds, with the shaving stick :
and this is how the lather looks like after 30 seconds :
and after a minute :
and this is the lather,ready to be use for shaving :
As you can see,its impossible to make stable,thick lather,from this shaving stick...
The shave was pretty good,actually and the lather is very slick,something Im looking these days.It didnt leave my skin dry after the shave,another point in favor.
For one pound is a very decent shaving stick.Is it better than Erasmic with tallow,Palmolive and Wilkinson shaving sticks?No,but its not far behind them either (maybe in scent).
Its scent its quiet like cologne and talc powder,on the sweet side,but its not very strong.
As I said,for a pound is a good stick and comes on a handy container,specially for traveling.
