    Default Lightfoot’s pure pines shave soap

    Anyone ever use the stuff? I stumbled upon it on amazon and was considering ordering it simply based on the price. The reviews are not exactly positive, but I figure many people do not know how to create a true lather. Any first hand experience?https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006ONBBK..._9Z5aDbN7R40GN

    Never heard of it and I don't think I'll try it either. I read the reviews and out of 110 reviews only one 5 star review and the rest were 2 or 3 stars. That's a lot of bad reviews.

    Gentlemen,
    I tried this soap years ago — and never tried it again. If I recall, the soap was anemic all around.

    That’s too bad. The idea of a pine scent sounded good. I did however find out that arko comes in a puck form. That’s a unique scent and a great lather.

    Arko shave sticks are pliable enough once you roll them in your hands to warm them up a bit to form into any container you wish.

    My wife loves Arko. I put the stick in a twist up tube for her.
