Chris Bartek is the soapmaker behind Ballenclaugh Soaps out of Wilber, Nebraska. You get small batch soaps from small-town America. While he has pretty much been flying under the radar, he has been offering soaps since about 2013. With its phenomenal ingredients list and resulting lather, it is a great value. Their unique line of scents is both sophisticated, invigorating, and unorthodox all at the same time. West Coast Shaving is excited to be the exclusive retailer for Ballenclaugh.

This tallow-based soap is easy to load and lather. Loaded with castor oil, palm kernel seed oil, camellia seed oil, soybean oil as well as kokum & cocoa butters, it produces a rich, creamy lather about the volume...

Pretty good soap

Good soap overall. Lather is pretty thick (not real thick like Greek yogurt as some soaps can be). The slickness is middle of the road for me. For me, it was not top-tier as far as slickness and glide.After rinsing the face does not feel dry which is a good thing. The scent, although I am not giving a review on (scents can be very subjective) for me, was not all that good. Very sweet cherry top scent (like maraschino cherries). The end scent was what I really did not like (hard to describe). Again, the review is only about the performance and not the scent. For the price, it was a good value for the perfomance.

A tremendous soap

I've heard a lot about Ballenclaugh soaps, and have been waiting to try Cherries in the Chamber. It is a fantastic tallow-based soap; and has a strong scent of cherries and tobacco. If you're in to both, pull the trigger. I have a number of top-tier, high-priced soaps in my den, and Ballenclaugh stays right with them. I love a soft soap which lathers easily, as this one does, maintains good cushion and glide, and has a great post-shave. Cherries in the Chamber hits all the metrics for me, and as I said, is a strong scented soap, which I prefer. Get yours from the great folks at WCS.
