Just received my  Sapone Di Paolo products yesterday (9/8/15).
I ordered both the Agrume shaving soap and the matching after shave balm.
I love trying products from independent artisan soap makers of which Paolo is one as well as a forum member.
Initial impressions are more then just positive in all areas of this purchase.
Paolo was quick to respond and quick to ship.The package contained a hand written thank you note (a nice touch I thought)
The pricing was more than fair for the quality of both products.
The products themselves were not just good but great inmo.I own  and have owned many top tier soaps and creams 
and both of these products can compete with any of them performance wise.
The scent is very hard to describe plus I am terrible and describing fragrances.It is a pleasant one and quite different from any other soap or cream I have  ever used.The soap lathered like a champ and 
I was able to create mounds of  slick lather with not much effort.I finished with the Agrume balm.I would stack this balm up
against many of the high end balms I have owned (I have never owned ABC balms so I don't know.)
Great products,terrific price  and great customer service.

Yes, I very much enjoy his soap as well... The Agrume is a very fresh lime / citrus scent to me.... It is one of my favorite soaps.....

He has some new scents that are awesome as well.... All good stuff. T

I agree, great performance and the best lime-scented soap available. I've enjoyed it so much that I've purchased it as a gift for friends.

+1000!! Paolo's soap and balms are simply outstanding performers that excels in EVERY level.

I think his upcoming scents will be enjoyed by many as well! Wink

I just got some agrume from Paolo. It is fantastic both in performance and in scent. I love the lime with a hint of basil. Such a fresh, clean scent. He also included a hand written note and a sample of one of his new scents which also smells great. I will be getting more.

This sounds appealing. If I didn't already have a killer lime soap I would definitely give it a try. I think the aloe being so high up on the ingredient list makes me hesitate.

It is amazing and honestly better than any lime soap I have ever tried.

My past experience with heavy aloe is that it's very tacky. But I've not heard any complaints so far, so it may be worth a try.

I used mine this am with incredible results. This is money well spent! The lather was dense and held water well. Very shiny on the face. As for the balm my fave feels incredible. I'm typically not a balm guy living in the south but this one is thicker than some and dries quickly leaving my face feeling amazing.

Well done Paolo!

To clarify, I use aloe vera JUICE and not gel.   It's used in place of water in my recipe.  No tackiness at all.
