Giving Arko Another Shot:

Here recently I placed an order for some tubes of Arko shave cream. They arrived today and I'm looking forward to re examining them. When I first returned to the hobby of wet shaving, I use to love Arko's performance. Its price point is ridiculously affordable. At $3.95 per 3.5 ounce tube (100 grams), it's the lowest priced mainstream product on the market at $1.13 per ounce. I personally know that these tubes of cream last a really long time from past experiences with Arko. I loved the "ice mint" which used to be known as "extra fresh" unfortunately it was out of stock at all of my suppliers that I use. Basically what caused me to stop using Arko nearly a year ago now, was that I tried my first artisan made soap and I was blown away with the performance and basically Arko took a back seat to those artisan made soaps. So I decided to try them yet again now that I'm a much more seasoned wet shaver and no what works best for me and my skin type. So it should be much more interesting this time around. The varieties that I purchased were maximum comfort, moist and last but certainly not least, cool which is their menthol based cream. I'm stocking up on my menthol based products for the "summer of shaves" event which I hold on the first official day of summer each and every year.
