This is my favorite m & p base. I've tried SFIC and Stephenson brands. I've tried the goats milk, shea butter, aloe (SFIC) and triple butter bases. The Stephenson Triple Butter is my favorite for the way it feels on my skin. EXTREMELY moisturizing! The Triple butter base works fine in swirls and layering techniques.
My only complaint is that the base remains soft, kind of rubbery, when compared to the other m & p bases. Also, this soap has a lower melting point than the other soaps. You can see strings of the embed appear when using a clear base to cover them.... In other words, the embed can start to melt because of its lower melting point. Despite the drawbacks of this soap, it is still my favorite soap base!
