I was approached a while ago to review some products from Bodyality. They sent me some beard oil, pre shave oil and their two unscented shave soaps, one containing tallow the other vegan.
This has to be the most functional container that I have used for a soap. It’s all plastic so it will not rust. There are no labels on the bottom and I believe the top label is waterproof. The lid has large threads and is easy to put back on. This is a great container for travel and also for using for other odds and ends after the soap is all gone.
Bodyality Unscented Shaving Soaps are a firm croap. Meaning it’s more of a very thick cream than a hard soap. The color is sort of grey with particles in it. Looks very natural and uncolored.
Well, this may be the best part of this soap. It’s labeled as unscented so I will rate it according to this claim. While there is a very small sent to these soaps, it’s a natural smell and hardly noticeable when I stick my nose in the container. When it’s lathered I don’t smell anything. Could just be my sniffer, but this may appeal to some more conservative shavers or those with allergies.
This lather is very good. While I do see a few fly away bubbles while I lather, which I usually only see on poor lathering soaps, it doesn’t seem to affect this soap. Both the Vegan and tallow soaps lather about the same and are very thirsty. I love a soap that likes lots of water. This is what wet shaving all about. I was left with a thick rich long-lasting lather that was plenty hydrating.
This is a decent soap when it comes to lubrication. I got nothing but good shaves using both soaps for a month. I wouldn’t say they are the slickest soaps out there, but I would put them up there with some other great soaps. These work well with using a straight razor as it still affords your some friction on your face when pulling the skin taught.
These are great soaps, and for people with sensitive skin, may be one of the rare all natural scentless soaps that actually works well. That being said, at $17 US as of December 2015 for 4 ounces of soap, it’s up there with some of the most expensive soaps I have tried.
