Geo. F. Trumper Sandalwood Shaving Soap in Bowl, 80g
- Product Review (submitted on 5 February 2014):
Having tried GTF Rose shaving soap, and having a love of all things GFT, I thought I would give this shave soap a go.
The packaging like all GFT soaps is quite nice and gives a brief background of GFT.
After rehydrating the soap (as I do with all my soaps) I began to lather with my badger brush. The brush generated a lovely amount of lather right there on the soap without hesitation. I then continued to bowl lather.
I was treated with a nice thick lather, which didn't disappear or dry out like so many other soaps.
What I wasn't a fan of was the scent. I have owned many "Sandalwood" soaps, and having smelt the GFT Sandalwood Skin food, I knew that this Sandalwood would be different. To me, the scent is more "Soapy" (think Imperial Leather soap scent) than Sandalwood. However there is a "Woody" scent to it, although its very light, and given this is more suited for sensitive skin, I can understand why the scent is not overpowering.
All in all, a great performing soap in a well presented box and wooden bowl. A must for all GFT fans!
