Hi all, i have 4 pucks of my latest homemade soap to give away, it's a tallow soap and i've been trying to create something similar to the wonder that is/was OSP. The scent in this one is an earthy/woody/herbal concoction of mine that reminds me of autumn in the forest.

So first four people to PM me their addresses will get one in the post. As last time with the cream give away, i'd love to hear your feedback, good or bad but no obligation at all.

Merry Christmas :)

First time using Bazz's hard tallow soap today.

What is the soap like? It's a hard little circle of soap, rock solid and I weighed it - around 35g in weight. As for the smell, I find it difficult to describe it but it's like a mild fougere style scent not too strong and quite earthy.

How does it lather? I found the lather was almost exploding from the brush within seconds of loading which continued after putting the brush to my face.

What's the lather like? There's no way I can make a full assessment of the soap's lather but on first impression I'd say it performs like a very traditional tallow soap, it reminded me of the Valobra (hence Bazzlobra for now) shaving stick in some ways in how it was a rich and creamy lather with a nice amount of cushion and slickness, but it's much easier to lather than the Valobra shaving stick.

What's the post shave feel like? Again it reminded me a little like Valobra in some ways, quite neutral in some ways in not being drying or too greasy afterwards.

There's no way I can assess the soap just after one usage, but I'm very impressed with it so far and I'm sure I will really enjoy using it again.

Okay I got my sample and I tried the soap tonight for the first time and it left my face I guess feeling "cleaner" than most other shave soaps.. I had a problem getting it to lather just right it wasn't as "yogurty like" as most other soaps are but that's just me learning the soap. I had 3 or 4 weepers with this soap which is unusual for me as I typically do not have weepers..... It appears to be a nice soap with an okay smell ( kind of neutral ) .. I liked the soap and appreciate the opportunity to try it out...
