Hard to lather Review by: Walt 10/10/2017
Rating:
I found it very hard to get a decent lather, I tried it with different amounts of water and also lathering it in a bowl as well as straight on the face neither worked particularly well. I would not purchase this again.

Still my go to Review by: Briny Barney 28/08/2017

I've now been using this soap for 22 years sometimes with a little gap here and there but I find myself always coming back to this great bay rum scent work your brush hot and hard and lather will happen. Just classic.
A solid soap Review by: Ryan 28/06/2017

I'm glad I offered the Colonel a second chance because, second time around, I found this soap to lather and perform very well (I think I used too much water when I initially tried it out). I even managed to make a few--though short--"dry" passes without any fuss, owing to the residual slickness left behind from the first couple of passes.

With its nice bay rum scent that isn't too overpowering, I'm really happy I gave Colonel Conk another shot! I'd definitely buy it again.
Rad ! Review by: Ethan 17/08/2016

This was my first go at glycerin shaving soap and I loved it takes a bit to load the brush but if you built the lather ok your face instead of the bowl it's a truely amazing shave ! The bay rum is a classic too ! I have the smell up my nose for ages afterwards ! Being a barber I give this product a 10/10
Price Performance Average Review by: Rafael 19/04/2016

I was expecting too much from this $9.95 product I think. I live in Japan and I am not sure of the hardness of the water in my area, but I really found it a bit of work to lather well. It eventually will, but just takes more time compared to other brands like Proraso. Other people have noted the same problem with lather being insufficient.I probably would not buy this again and will go for other brands I have better experiences with eg. Proraso, Cella, Mitchell's Wool Fat. But for $9.95 it'S not bad....you could end up with worse.
Good value, nice aroma Review by: Luke 10/02/2016

This shaving soap is good value for money. It has a nice aroma. A little difficult to lather but definitely would repurchase again
Smells great and it's cheap Review by: Gregory 30/11/2014
Rating:
Wow what a fab smelling shave soap and a great back up for those 'high end' products.Good for when you are in a hurry ( just hoe into it with a hot wet brush ) and gives a perfectly good shave if not quite in the luxury class - close though !A bona fide bargain
Lather not the best, smell great Review by: CJF 20/11/2014
Rating:
I really love the smell! It's amazing. However, it lets itself down due to its poor lather. I have tried different techniques to see if I could manage to make it lather well. Also, I tried with varying water quantities. I had no success in the end to get a decent enough lather that persisted over time. I wouldn't buy Colonel Conk again.
Good first time soap Review by: Rob 23/09/2014
Rating:
This was the first soap I'd used when starting DE shaving. Took a while to get used to creating a good lather, but in my big old soup mug, loading the brush twice gives heaps of good quality lather for a few passes. Definitely pleasant scent too, not overbearing, but adds a nice smell to the bathroom as well after shaving.

Takes a little work to get the right lather, but after correcting my mistakes for the 'false lather' that people report on (search google if you're having issues), I've had great shaves with a badger brush.

I'll be sure to buy more in the future.
Great scent! Review by: Peter 23/04/2014
Rating:
This is my favourite flavour in Conk's range. (I bought all 4 Conk flavours - lime, bay rum, almond, amber).

After a little trial & error, I find this one (bay rum) easy to work up into a great lather (using badger brush & working the leather in a bowl...actually a big old soup mug) - easily gives enough for a 3 pass shave. I'm not a big fan of the other Conk flavours - the lime & almond are ok, but the amber one..yuck! But Conk's bay rum is awesome!

It feels smooth under your blade too. The scent is great, pity it doesn't last all day! The plastic package is terrible, but it's easy to gently melt into another container.
Reasonable soap Review by: Nick 6/03/2014
Rating:
Soft scented shaving soap. Hard to get the lather just right, seems to bubble up or fade away easily.
Not a bad buy though at the price if you like soaps.
Great soap Review by: Daniel 28/01/2014
Rating:
I got this soap to try out as an alternative to my other shaving cream. I was blown away by how good of a shave it provided relative to its price, the smell is pleasant but not overpowering and the lather was quick and simple. I'll definitely be buying the larger one when I eventually finish this one off.
My current go to soap. Review by: Steve 4/01/2014
Rating:
When my order arrived, the first thing I did was smell this soap. It instantly reminded me of a punk rock bar in San Francisco. If you want your face smooth and smelling like Pop's bar, this is the soap for you. And at this price it's well worth trying something new.
Cheap Review by: Lach 21/09/2013

I like the scent of this but I do wish I did my research before buying. Like many I found the lather and overall performance subpar compared to other products I have used.
Great first soap! Review by: Christopher 27/08/2013

First impressions, smells great! Seconds impression, this is a winner!

Cheap enough to try something new. Cheap enough to add to your rotation. Oh and provides a great shave to!
Nice Review by: Big Trev 22/02/2013

My first Col Conk product, and I'm quite impressed. I find lather is about as good as Mitchells Wool Fat, and it's cheap as chips. I like the scent too.

Makes a fantastic lather, and smells great. Affordable price makes this a must have soap.
Nice smell and great performer Review by: Trevor 26/11/2012

I melted this into a different container using hot water.

I bought this without knowing what bay rum smelled like, but I think it smells great.

It lathered really easy and it gave a very smooth shave.
Great on price and feel on skin Review by: Evan 22/11/2012
Rating:
Overall this product gets great reviews so I thought i'd give it a try.

The price is great and the aroma and feel on the skin is fantastic, however I find this soap a little difficult to get a great lather (using Simpsons Chubby 1 Best Badger).

I have moved to now loading my brush with Col Conk first then mixing in some TOBS Sandalwood shaving cream, this cocktail is fantastic.
Great Bay Rum. Review by: Nick 1/11/2011
Rating:
The Bay Rum Soap smells great, spicy and sweet. Once lathered the scent is quite subtle but certainly enjoyable still. Like other Col Conk soaps, it performs well and gives you more than enough lather for a great 3-pass shave.
Nice Review by: Nuke 8/03/2011
Rating:
Nice soap and great bay rum smell. I only wish the smell was stronger! but will suit people who only want a slight scent remaining after shaving.

Gone is the skin dryness I used to get when using commercial/shopping market shaving gels full of harsh chemicals.
Cheap and cheery Review by: Ian Lim 8/03/2011
Rating:
Just like the other "flavours" in the Col Conk range, this produces a nice slippery lather. It's not quite as cushiony as the Almond. The pleasant Bay Rum scent and the cheap prices makes this an excellent soap.
