Agreed on the Perfect Shave Soap, it's underrated. The problem is that it's quite hard and the tub is too narrow, but like you said once you transplant it to a bigger container so you can load more and it makes quite a nice lather. Really like the scent as well.

I'm not sure if this is only for new or existing accounts. But it's a good discount

There was an FNB Voucher like this doing the rounds a while ago too, a work colluege registered a new account with his work email address to place an order and get the discount :lol: and it worked for him...

I have never had that kind of good fortune from Take a Lot. I asked on another thread if anyone had heard of the Lipidol After Shave Oil that Clicks sell apparently it is made by the same manufacturers of Bio Oil.

Never heard of lipidol - if bioclassic makes it then it should be good. Are you picking up some? Review?

Bought some Perfect Shave Soap at Dischem on a 2 for 1 special. Not sure if it's at all the Dischems. Hope this doesn't mean it's being discontinued.

On a side note, I can't find the Deodorant Crystal that Dischem usually has. Hope it's just out of stock and not discontinued. If anyone sees this at their Dischem please let me know. It's purple and sometimes kept by the ladies deodorants for some reason. It's basically the same as an alum stone, although their version is the cheaper chemical composition of ammonia alum or something like that. It works well enough for a sitting down most of the day office job.

*edit: I submitted a query on their website and they phoned me back :shock: :thumbup: They were out of stock for a long time, but should have stock again soon.

I have seen this before and have always been reluctant to try it how does it actually work and is there any irritation under you arms?

Hi DS yes I managed to get some of this and it is really great goes on smooth and does not leave an oily residue and is really good as a post shave balm my face has not felt this good in a while.

@Dave: It works well for me, but like I said I'm not super active during the day at the office. The stink actually comes from bacteria and the mineral salts inhibits their growth. I did trim my underarm hair to get more of the deodorant onto my skin. It doesn't give me any sting or irritation. I have a normal spray deodorant with me at the office as a backup or if I do want to smell nice.

I'll try to get some lipidol too, as long as it's not oily (can't stand that oily face feel).

On deo - I use mitchum roll on scentless at night before bed (when you're supposed to) and never have issues around sweaty pits :-)

@Jaquers. You can also try Garnier Men Mineral Anti perspirant Invisible roll on as a substitute.
No problem with odour if you’re active or not and the anti-yellow stain and white mark prevention to shirts is an added bonus. They sell for most of the time under R20 a bottle and it will keep you with fresh armpits for at least 3 weeks. :D

I've used the Mitchum before changing to Garnier. The Mitchum dried out my armpits casing an itching feeling. The longevity of the scent was however superb. :thumbup:

Thanks, I actually have some of that and use it from time to time when I know that I'll be sweating a bit more. Works pretty well :thumbup:

btw, that crystal deo lasts 6+ months, so it's a winner in terms of cost effectiveness, but might not be effective enough if you are more active in the day.

The shap soap and cream work well. The aftershave scents don't last too long, but they have excellent skin care properties.

I was randomly yesterday in a L'Occitane shop and that Cade rich shaving cream looked really great. They also do a cream in a tube for about R30 less that is not on Takealot. Prices look exactly the same as the shop.
