Software based on a true summertime classic, melding orange and cream with a hint of chill - Chiseled Face Orange Creamsicle #soap and #aftershave!

Perfect for any hot summer day – or any day you wish was summer. This one is simple. This is the scent of an orange creamsicle with some menthol added to provide the cooling power of a popsicle.

I've done a large number of reviews on #chiseledface products here, so I won't get into the performance much today. Click that hashtag to check 'em out for more info. This review won't be too different from my previous in-depth review of Orange Creamsicle. But to summarize, the lather is abundant, somewhat dense and very slick on both primary and residual with a nice resulting face feel. It's a fine lather, especially for the money - performing well above its price point. The aftershave is a little more average, with so-so healing and moisturization properties, but a lovely face feel.

The scent is exactly as the name implies... Orange Creamsicle. Combining notes of orange and cream there's also a nice splash of menthol to complete the illusion. Overall scent strength of the soap is a light medium, but the aftershave kicks it up a notch to a medium. The scent itself is a dead ringer for the tasty summertime treat. It's a little lighter on the orange and a little heavier on the cream. It's not altogether different than The Holy Black Ramos Gin Fizz which adds just a hint of juniper to the mix. Adding even more complexity but still in the same vain, you're closer to Chiseled Face Santa Paula Citrus.

Hardware today consists of the all-black #StandardRazors piece with a fresh #Gillette Silver Blue blade. The brush is a custom piece from #TurnNShave meant to recall - what else - but an orange creamsicle! It features a 24mm Cashmere (a.k.a. Angel) knot. The #GTP scuttle kept the chilly lather warm and contained.

I've had citrus on the brain of late due to an upcoming trip to the sunshine state of Florida, so I'm looking at which software set to bring along... So much awesome citrus software! At any rate, this one's great in that it pulls it off perfectly and it's fairly unique.
