    Citrus Melange Tallow shaving Soap

    Posted by KEVIN ANSBERRY on Apr 13th 2017

    After three solid shaves using this soap, I've come away very impressed by the denseness and slickness of the lather. The soap does not require much effort to generate a substantial amount of lather, easily loaded onto a brush. I've used natural boar, badger and synthetic brushes with this soap and no matter the type of brush, the lather is always plentiful. This is not a 'thirsty' soap—some soaps require a constant addition of water to generate adequate lather. A single dunk & several swirls with a damp brush seem to be sufficent in developing a solid shaving lather. The lather applies slickly and creates a dense, slippery coating on the face— ideal ground for comfortable straight razor shaving. The citrus is light, clean-smelling and has none of the aritifical smell some citrus-scentyed soaps have. This isa very solid-performing shave soap I would have no problem in recommending to a fellow wet-shaver.

    C&C Citrus Melange - looking ahead for spring/summer scent

    Posted by Guy on Jan 29th 2017

    Citrus Melange is the 6th C&C soap in my den and once again, cant beat the performance. Jar was frozen due to weather here in Mtn zone so gave it 48 hours to thaw out. Aroma wise a bright citrus which in my opinion the combination is perfect but a little on the light side on aroma strength. 8 sec load then transfer to bowl produced a yougurt like consistency and enough for 3 pass shave though I only needed two passes. Typical slick razor glide and post shave feel is silky smooth. I waited a week, pulled out the Citrus Melange and after a week the aroma in the jar went from light to medium. Maybe just needed to rest some more after the deep freeze enroute to me and the snow here in Idaho. Same pre/post shave quality I come to expect from C&C but for me I would prefer the aroma strength to be just a tad higher. I prefer medium to heavy scents such as I find with Thuringian Forest and Kingsmen but overall perfomance hard to beat. If aroma strength kicked up a notch this would be a five rating IMHO
