While their products had come rather highly recommended, I had held off on placing an order with Prairie Creations for quite some time, largely due to the fact that they don’t allow for orders outside of the US to be placed through their main website, requiring you to place it by e-mail instead. But, when I decided to do so, the proprietor Krissy was extremely helpful, and quick to respond.
One thing that really sets Prairie Creations apart is the ability to customize the amount of fragrance they use in the soaps or creams they make. They’re able to do this because they custom-make most of their products to orders, although their website does also list a number of pre-made products that can be ordered as well without a wait.
Anyways, it lathered up readily, and provided a great balance of glide and thickness with what I would consider a moderate amount of water; a bit of experimentation revealed it was moderately flexible with regards to water content.
By the time the 3rd pass rolled around, however, I did start to feel a little bit of irritation / burning, probably from the extra fragrance. It wasn’t really much, but then again, I am blessed with rather irritation-free skin, so those of you with sensitive skin would probably do best to stay the heck away from the heavily scented versions.
Anyways, once the shave was finished, that went away fairly rapidly, and overall my face felt rather smooth and moisturized.
- 9/10 Scent Pleasantness
- 9/10 Scent Strength
- 8/10 Lather Quality
Several sizes are available, ranging from $15 for a 4 oz jar to $25 for 10.5 oz. There’s no extra charge for picking any of the scent strength levels.
Overall, I’d say I’m rather pleased with this soap… cream… whatever it is. It’s an easy 8/10.
