Hi everybody at Shavenook,
    we're very happy to announce that our new line Opuntia Special Edition is now available. It's composed of a shaving soap (in our latest beta 4.3 formulation), an aftershave (125ml) and a bath soap for face and body. Each one of them contains a special ingredient, the Prickly Pear Extract (Opuntia Ficus-Indica) that creates a Protective Film and gives a Deep Moisturization to the skin, working together with the beta 4.3 formula to give you the most protective shave of all our range and the best post shave ever...

Sounds like it should be similar to Aventus based on the note pyramid.

I was very happy with the first shave using Opuntia. Unique first experience during the face lathering, successful ratio of the water was achieved on first try as well! I was very happy with that as I believe the results showed an equally impressive post shave feel. The aftershave was good as well but unfortunately, I think my skin was a bit tender from skin irritation from not shaving a couple days ago. The razor took it off fine but my skin has felt off the last month. I would not like to many any comments on the soap's scent this early on.

Great soap Ale! I am impressed once again. May the beta soaps be continued with exploration.

Had my first shave and could not be happier! The lather is fantastic and my skin reacted to the soap very favorably. The aftershave completed the shave turning it into one of the most luxurious and satisfactory experiences.

The scent is intoxicating (goes very well with Creed Aventus IMO) and has a healthy longevity.

Thank you Ale for super fast shipping and delivery!

First go with Opuntia yesterday and all I can say is wow!  This scent is amazing!  Very similar to Creed aventus which is a good thing imho. The 4.3 base performance is outsanding as usual.

The scent to me on first couple uses was nice and bearable but after 5 uses, I am enjoying it a bit more and look forward to more uses with it so the smell mellows and balances out. As far as performance, I have been really impressed with all the beta 4.3 formulas but so far, I think this in shave protection and post shave feel is probably the top contender. Nice work to Ale and the SV team.

Highly recommended

In my experience, it is highly desirable for how it impacts my skin. The Ficus Indica isn't the only thing in the formula that is aiding in such calm qualities. In addition, the aftershave lays on the skin with ease and it pairs nicely for the skin conditioning as well as a cologne scent.

Thanks for the info looking forward to trying it. I didn't get the aftershave as I prefer unscented options. I'm usually always weary of scented soaps as well but hopefully this one can be a keeper.

Great quality soap but whoever says it smells like Creed aventus has obviously never smelt it in their life!

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most aventus like, Opuntia is about a 4-5. They really smell nothing alike!

I did say it and I stand by my words. You might want to avoid making statements that imply people's dishonesty.

Sorry if it came across like that. I'm not saying anybody has been dishonest at all! Just saying whoever thinks they smell the same are completely incorrect in my opinion.
