  • Artisan shaving soap from Catie's Bubbles
  • Top quality lather from natural, vegetable & fruit based ingredients
  • Scented with a blend of pipe tobacco, vanilla, oak, nutmeg, and leather

Catie's Bubbles (named after the soap maker's daughter) is getting a lot of buzz these days. This artisan soap maker, Chris, makes his bubbles with simple, natural, vegetable and fruit based ingredients. Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Connecticut Shade was the official soap for the North East Shaver's Meetup, but it turned out so well they are offering it to everyone.

This shaving requisite is a French style soft soap. Coconut oil and glycerin make it a winner in slickness and moisture, just what you need to get the BBS shave you desire. The naturally occurring glycerin and soap salts also make it a thirsty soap. Add water slowly as you whip up a top quality lather. And allow the soap to dry completely after each use. At 4 oz. of soap, you will get superior results for many shaves!

And the scent just might have you channeling Rip Van Winkle as you settle under a shade tree, tip your hat over your face, and breathe in as you drift to sleep. Connecticut Shade has notes of pipe tobacco, vanilla, and oak as well as a spicy hint of nutmeg and leather to finish off this enticing aroma.

Size: 4oz. (poured into an 8 oz. tub so there is plenty of room to lather.)

Made in the USA

Ingredients: Stearic acid, Water, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Shea butter, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Jojoba oil, Sodium Lactate, and Glycerin.

Unique and great smell

I went to West Coast Shaving today to smell several soaps. One was Catie's Bubbles "Le Piment da la Vie", and it smelled great! However the sales rep opened "Connecticut Shade" and I became interested. We talked and then I smelled it again and I knew I had a new "favorite" soap. This smells like nothing else. I have smelled severe a hundred cologne's and many cremes and Soaps but this is truly unique. I though nothing would topple B&M Seville off the top of my rotation but this one did. Of course it is a Catie's Bubbles product so it lathers well and shaves great.

Sweet Vanilla Tobacco Luxury!

This is a very sweet Tobacco accord, with Vanilla, Oak, Nutmeg and Leather elements, and shares much in common with its rare sibling, "Porch Drinks." Upon lathering, the Vanilla Tobacco is still out front, but you can detect the woody Oak underneath. The Nutmeg just adds a mild spice to the overall sweet tobacco funk, but the Leather was lost on me. Like all CB soaps, this loads and lathers easily, provides great face coverage and excellent post-shave feel. I recommend pairing it with the matching Connecticut Shade Before and After Shave.
