I was drawn to this after I got fed up using Gillette Pure crap, with a suspicion it probably wasn't vegan. I use the Captain Fawcett Synthetic Vegan Friendly Shaving Brush - makes for a really comfortable shave.
Seems very economical too - I can imagine this soap lasting a year!
The scent is pleasant. It's easy to lather up with a badger brush. While it's not particularly exciting, there's nothing to complain about either. I like that there are matching pre-shave and after-shave available.
