    NOW it gets intersting.

    Matas is one of the biggest drugstores - if not THE biggest - in Denmark. They have apparently decided to launch their own shaving soap recently.

    Ingredients includde: Glycerin, Kreatin, Algeaextact and E-vitamin.

    Sound promising ... and so does the price: 70 g for 50 DKK ~7.5 USD. Gotta get me one of these tomorrow :)

    Always nice to see a new product on the shelves.
    Let us know how you like it after you try it out.

    I will be in Copenhagen next week and could see one of Matas drugstore near my company office :)
    I need to go there and pick-up one :)

    in the link you have mentioned - I could see some discount - is it only for web shopping?
    Do you think it's possible to order through web and pick it up in the drugstore?
    The site is in Danish and could not figure this out :)

    Got one a month ago.

    - Lathers well and provides a great glide.
    - It says that there is perfume in the soap, but I can't smell it. My guess is that it would be good for persons that have issues with perfumed products.
    - Contains algeaextract and e-vitamin.

    Not a bad product, but I prefer a bir more character in my shaving soaps.

    Yeah it doesn't make much of it self in that regard. It's a very nice soap but also kind of boring.

    Hey, I have it and I really like it! (it turned out to be better than I thought it would!)

    For me it's just a mediocre soap.
    The smell is just ok - like hundreds of others, lather is pretty ok - like others, glide is just ok.
    And it dried my skin pretty much.
    So I would not recommend it as it's nothing special.

    If anything that turns out better than expected is good - then I have a lot of good stuff :D
