Another catch up shave.  Unfortunately I’m having to sit down and write while I’m fighting the stomach flu.  I had to take a break from the tenting to recover in a hotel for a few days.  Starting to feel human again.  It was horrible.

But before I pulled the pin on tenting I got inspired by our campsight to use this Paragon Sunlit Forrest shaving soap.  I was surprised as ‘forrest’ type scents tend to be heavy on the pine notes.  That is not the case here.  This is actually quite a citrus forward scent.  Notes (essential oils) are blood orange, cedar, tea tree and lavender.  I really get the blood orange and cedar up front with subtle lavender.  Tea tree is a note that can take over in a hurry but that isn’t the case here.  It is a really nice scent.  If you like citrus this could be a big win for you.

The soap performed OK.  I won’t comment on it too much as I really didn’t have a great review setup.  This was a cold-hard water shave camp side.  No cuts, knicks or irritation so no complaints.  Look forward to trying this again back home in the den.
