Kell’s Original lavender in shave stick form; no surprises here folks.
It’s a reasonably nice lavender scent; I’m fairly certain we’re talking a fragrance version rather than any actual essential oil, but it’s what I think is a pretty good version thereof.
And it’s nice and strong; pretty much just shy of being too overpowering, without anything in the way of noticeable fading while you shave.
The lather performed pretty much exactly as I expected it based upon previous experienced with Kell’s Original. Quite nicely that is. Good performance of thickness, glide, and moisturizing properties; make sure you use a fair bit of water though. Nice volume produced as well.

So, all told, 8/10. A nice shave, be worth a shot if you like lavender.
