That RS-1 strand certainly is impressive. It’s going to take an earth quake to make that fall over.

Beautiful, creamy lather but SH is a brand that, for me, overdid the fragrance oils as the majority irritated my skin. This one gives a very slight tingle on the upper lip but it's not too bad.
Out of 15 SH soaps, I only have 6 in my den due to the irritation issue.

Another two passes for a DFS+ result. Was a little blood today but can't blame the equipment- went ATG on a small pimple I hadn't noticed...🤔
