It also works well as a shave soap. This is my first experience with a shampoo bar so apologies if this is to be expected. It lathered so well as a shampoo bar I figured I would try it for shaving. Lathered well, good lubrication. The scent, Peppermint and Tea Tree, is very mild. If you shave in the shower or are a fan of Peppermint/Tea Tree Oil as a scent, this may be worth exploring.
