Mickey Lee Soapworks

The epitome a "mom-and-pop" business, Mickey Lee Soapworks is the husband and wife team of Eric and Samantha McDaniels. Growing out of the "necessity is the mother of invention" mantra that is common to many artisans, Eric began dabbling in wet-shaving to remedy the razor burn he was experiencing with daily (active duty military) required shaves. In an attempt to economize and grow their hobby, they began to make their own shave soaps. With extensive vetting from testers on wet shaving blogs and forums, they launched their business in 2014. Named Mickey Lee (a riff off of Eric's high school moniker and Samantha's maiden name), the business grew and expanded with a loyal following. A Navy IT and cybersecurity specialist, Eric handles the technical side of the business. Samantha is the soap maker, R&D specialist, and creative head. Producing handcrafted, small batch, artisan soap with high-quality natural ingredients is the mission of Mickey Lee Soapworks.

great soap!
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Kraken This stuff smells great and lathers well. I will put this into my rotation! It comes in a 4 oz tub not 3.3 as listed here.
Great Soap!
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, Unforgiven, 4oz Boy, this soap is a shaver's dream: nice and creamy, slick and lasts on your face for a really smooth shave. I wish I had found this soap from the very beginning.
Mickey Lee Soapworks Cape Verde
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, Cape Verde Excellent soap with great lather and slickness. This soap allows for a very close shave that's irratation free. The scent is one of my favorites and I"ve probably tried 100 different soaps. Check it out you won't be disappointed.
The Drunken Goat
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Drunken Goat "Go this one as part of the Artisan sample pack. Pretty impressive. Excellent lathering, plenty of glide and smells great on top of that. Can't wait to try some of the other soaps in the sample pack
I'm not sure about the hype
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Kraken "Maybe it's just me, but the smell out of the can is very much like laundry detergent. It's actually a very clean smell that's better on the brush and face. I don't have any baby dolphins with which to compare the soap, but I can tell you that it lathers easily and gives a nice smooth shave. I'm hoping it grows on me.
Great soap
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Kraken "I wasn't sure what to expect with this being my first soap from ML. The scent is fresh, but not overpowering. The performance is top tier, easy to lather with excellent cushion and slickness. I would purchase again! Great soap!
Love the lather
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Drunken Goat Great lather and good fragrance.
Best Shave Soap Ever Hands Down
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, Cape Verde.Been wet shaving since early 2011. I've tried nearly every shave soap out there. Yeah, I'm a shave soap whore, there, I said it=:-) Seriously, I've used the best shave soaps out there but this Cape Verde blows everything out of the water. BTW, I face lather, and FWIW, I use a multitude of shave brushes but for my trial of Mickey Lee Cape Verde, I used a huge knot of synthetic. Fantastic lather, best slick and glide (I shave using straight razors) and the kicker? The scent is a dead ringer for Taylor's of Old Bond Street Eton College After Shave, but I'll be happy to call it a fougere as well and I use several fougere scents regularly, yet this fougere scent is on the sweet (florals, lavender) Seriously, Mickey Lees Cape Verde Shave Soap, easily the best shave soap I have ever used. this recommendatin isn't coming lightly from me, I mean it. This is the best. Period!
