Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Barbershop.
Smelled good. Decent lather...
This is good stuff!
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this soap. It makes great lather that lubricates and holds up well for the entire shave and my face comes out feeling smooth and nick-free. The price is fair and there's a lot of it in the container so this will last me a long time. I haven't been to a regular barber shop since they started naming haircut stores 'salons' but I went to plenty as a kid. When I got a whiff of this soap my mind took me back to when I would sit in the chair and they'd fling the sheet over me and wrap the paper strip around my neck. It is exactly the smell I remember from those times...kind of talcum powder-y.
Beef tallow vs all others
I have tried many soaps. Vegetable and the other additives. This beef tallow product is the best ever. Sent could be a little stronger. Over all this is a great soap. One ingredient I miss in shave soaps is honey. It might make the mix over the top. Great product.
I am new to the world of luxury shaving, and I got a big surprise. This soap makes my skin so slick, for the first time in fifty-two years of shaving, there was no razor burn. I may even start shaving on days I don't need to. How weird is that?
Classic barbershop smell that you would expect and great lather.
