Arko Shave Stick Review....

I finally was able to order from shavenation.com and I ordered 2 items. The first is the Arko Shave stick. The other item I ordered was Taylor of Old Bond Street sensitive skin formula which will be in another review. The first impression I got of the Arko Shave Stick was its actual size. It's a lot smaller than what I was expecting, but that's ok because it's perefect for traveling. Once I opened it, the smell had an "old world" clean soap scent to it. If I can compare it to anything in terms of a scent. It smells like a stronger version of Ivory soap's classic formula. Now on to the performance. At first, I tried face lathering and this soap didn't quite perform and I did a review over on Badger & Blade forums reflecting this. I thought that it would work better if I melted it, but a member suggested that I just press it into a bowl instead of melting it because it would ruin the soap. So using hot water, I pressed it into a bowl and the lather just simply exploded from my shaving bowl. The cushion was very good and the slickness was very good as well. It's not as good as some of your premium shave creams and soaps in terms of slickness and cushioning abilities, but it does get the job done. The price point is excellent. I paid $3.99 for a 2.8 ounce shave stick which makes the price point really low at $1.43 per ounce. I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars and it's definately going in my rotation. Normally with something that has this low of a price point, I don't expect it to perform to well but this one is an exception to the rule.
