Moon Soaps: Amaretto Speciale Review
Moon was created out of a life-long love of bath and body products. I wanted to explore the possibilities of creating a line that embodies all the things I love in a product. I want my creations to be nurturing, luxurious, and to smell divine. So with a little experimentation and a lot of hard work, Moon was born. Moon products are handmade from scratch using exotic butters, premium fragrance and essential oils, and the finest botanicals. We never use parabens or phthalates. Whenever possible we source local, sustainable, and organic ingredients.

Barrister and Mann soaps are known as top performing soaps and the Excelsior base is no exception. I scooped out a decent amount due to the size of know I was using (31mm) and ended up with a thick, dense lather that can be described as low structure, but dense. The soap can also take a decent amount of water before it is properly dialed in. The residual slickness is nothing but exceptional. After the shave was completed, I had a difficult time rinsing off the soap. Cleaning the brush also took a bit longer due to the slickness and properties of the soap.
