Barrister and Mann Reserve Classic Shaving Soap

8 reviews
  • A handcrafted, tallow-based shaving soap
  • Loaded with tallow, glycerin, & coconut oil
  • Scented with a classic aroma of citrus, lavender, moss, and sandalwood

Barrister and Mann is an artisan soap maker making waves with their fascinating scents and fabulous lather. Like many who got their start in soap making, this artisan wanted to battle sensitive skin and run-of-the-mill scents. They did that in spades. This soap is a dream come true. And this line of throw-back scents is top notch.

This grooming requisite is tallow-based to give you that amazing lather and protection.Loaded with amazing ingredients to give you an incredibly creamy, dense lather with slickness to write home about. It works great in hard water as well as soft. The soap is poured hot into the almost 4 inch diameter jar so loading your brush is easy. Reviewer, Jason said, "Barrister and MannŠ—Ès soap bases are the great white sharks of the artisan soap sea, they simply have no competition. This new, lanolin-free base improves on previous offerings (white label, black label, latha and glissant) and continue to push the envelop for performance and protection. This is probably the most effortless soap to load and lather in the B&M line."

But with everything that Barrister and Mann does well, their scents are still at the top of the list. They have resurrected some vintage scents in this line of reserve soaps and matching aftershaves that will make you feel like a million bucks. Inspired by the barbershop scents of the 60s, this Classic aroma has powdery notes of citrus, lavender, moss, and sandalwood. A traditional, masculine aroma that is perfect for any occasion. Not a strong as some which makes it a great daily use soap.

Grab it today and pair it with the Reserve Classic Aftershave for the perfect finish.

Barrister and Mann Reserve Classic Shaving Soap

Yet another super soap from Barrister and Mann. It took me a minute to get it as it's a low structure lather, but once I did it was great. Always good ingredients in these soaps and the scent reminds me of something like English Leather.

Good soap, bad smell

The soap and the shave are great. The smell is pretty off putting. Its a very sharp fragrance that reminds of me of the cologne my old man used to wear, English Leather. I love my dad and this smell suits him but not me. Try a sample before you purchase a large size one.

Another hit from B&M

I have to admit that I didn't enjoy my first shave with this soap at all. I have Seville (which I love), but the Reserve base is different. This base requires less soap and more water. It is thirstier than any soap that I own. It took about three shaves to get it dialed in. When I did, it is a fantastic soap. Very slick with excellent residual thickness. I don't pay much attention to post-shave feel since I wash my face and moisturize after shaving. This is an excellent soap. If you have another one of the B&M soaps with the reserve base then you will have no issues with lathering. If you are new to the reserve base just know that you will need to work to dial it in, but once done you will be rewarded with a superb shave.
