Stellar shave soap

This charcoal cream lathers extremely well and provides lots of lubrication with a nice buffer. Very little cream required to make a substantial amount of lather. Very nice post shave feel. I really enjoy the scent.

Phil and Jane kindly included a sample of this superb cream with my last order. It’s enough for three shaves—a little goes a very long way. I built up a thick, silky lather in no time and I’m pleased to say that this is some of the slickest and most soothing cream I’ve ever used. It’s very soft and hydrating, and most importantly it’s non-irritating for my sensitive skin. Whatever light fragrance is in there didn’t cause any reaction—quite the contrary, it’s very pleasant and only enhances the experience.

In my world it’s hard to beat the Nivea sensitive skin line as well as the Proraso White line for same (I care most about slickness, cushion, hydration, and non-irritation), but this Classic Edge Charcoal cream has outdone both and will become my go-to shave cream. A full container is on its way!

Also wasn't sure about charcoal soap but I tried the sample Phil and Jane sent to me after reading the reviews. This stuff is great. Lathers very well, excellent lub and good skin protection. Plus the very light fragrance doesn't mess with your aftershave. At this price it's a no brainer. Ordered a tub the same day.

Thanks Phil for the sample. I'm still new to wet shaving but I'm a big fan of TOBS. I was surprised at how easy this lathers and the smell is okay because I used a charcoal based cleanser before I shave. I can add this soap t8 my list of good quality high end soap.

Was slightly apprehensive about charcoal shaving soap. I'm glad I got over it, because this might be some of the slickest cream I've ever used.

The smell is very mild, but pleasant. Reminds me of talcum? The feel is thick, and very slippery.

Felt great going on my face, no burn or sting. Very easy to build lather.

In total, the lather up took about 20 seconds to build, no joke! It was some of the slickest, if not THE slickest cream\soap I've ever used. Fantastic lubrication! Out performed my Edwin Jagger and Prorasso white.

Definitely recommended, I don't know how they offer it at this price but it's a steal.
