Welcome to the second VanYulay six week project. Time once again to spend six more weeks with another six different shave soaps from VanYulay. These next six weeks I will be shaving with the Vanila, Old Barber Shop, Afognak, Old Spice, Calabria and Briseis. The Calabria came packaged in a 4 oz. plastic tub with a lid that screws on/off and the Briseis came packaged in a 4 oz. aluminum tin with a lid that pops on/off. The Vanilla, Old Barber Shop, Afognak and Old Spice all came in a 3 oz. aluminum tin also with a lid that pops on and off. Both the 3 and 4 oz. containers had enough room to build the lather right in the same container the soap came packaged in. The 4 oz. containers had a little more room to work in compared to the 3 oz. containers. I’m a big fan of having a big bowl of lather every night but in reality unless you are saving your left over lather by putting it back into the same container it came from you are just wasting product. The 4 oz. container does have enough room that you can resave your lather in compared to the 3 oz. containers that does not give you that option.
The 3 oz. aluminum containers are easier to store compared to the 4 oz. containers that take up more room. In the end whether you choose the 3 or 4 oz. container is strictly your choice. You can build your lather in both sized containers. The Briseis and Calabria both contain natural ingredients such as. Glycerin, Aloe Vera, Coconut Fatty Acid, Borage, Olive, Meadow Foam, Babassu, Castor, Calendula, Emu, Prilla, Argan, Squalane Oils, Kokum Butter, Evening Primrose, Coconut Milk, Kaolin and Bentonite Clay. These natural ingredients have a wide variety of skin care benefits such as an antioxidant and Antibacterial, prevents UV damage from the sun and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth, Ideal for all skin types including dry, sensitive, oily and acne prone, relieves dry and itchy skin, relieves inflammation from insect bites and stings, excellent lathering and conditioning when used in shave soap.
The Vanila, Old Barber Shop, Afognak and Old Spice that came in the 3 oz. aluminum tins also contain some great natural ingredients such as Kokum, Mango, Cocoa, Shea butter, Chamomile, Calendula Oil, White Kaolin Clay and Vitamin E Oil. These natural ingredients share a lot of the same skin care benefits as the natural ingredients found in the Briseis and Calabria shave soap. At the end of the first week of the second six week project with the VanYulay shaving products my skin feels very soft and smooth. The VanYulay soaps also contain natural ingredients that act as a natural skin toner as well keeping my skin looking much younger and vibrant. I look forward to the next five weeks of shaving. Love your products and you will love the results.
