The first shave with this new soap was - and this is a good thing - blissfully normal. The lather has a slightly grey tint from the charcoal, and the scent loosened up a bit and embraced me as I was removing my stubble. Facial feel wasn't too dissimilar to the Cold River Soap Works' Glide, which is a recent favourite of mine. Since I had bloomed the soap and have fairly soft water, about half a minute of loading was plenty enough for two passes and lather left over.

The post shave feel of the first shave was also a good one, with no noticeable drying out of my skin. As a side note the floral scent of the Pereira works very well with the Proraso Wood & Spices.

Very nice Hans.  Looks like we need a little goatee trim there. Smile

Thanks for sharing Hans.  Do you know if it's a tallow based or vegetable based soap?

For those who are better at interpreting such things:
Quote:Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Xylenesullonate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Stearic Acid, Kaolin, Charcoal Powder, Tetrasodlum EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Parfum, Lanolin, Castor Seed Oil, Benzyl sallcylate, Cournarin, Citronellol, Linalool, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, and titanium dioxide.

I appreciate the review Hans.  I was not aware of this soap.  It's a unique and attractive ceramic container.
