This Italian brand has been gracing homes the world over since 1899. This bestselling soap is a must try for every wet shaver. Get your hands on Cella Shave Soap Cream.

Made in the classic, Italian-style, this is a soft soap that explodes with lather. Load your brush in the tub and then face, palm, or mug lather to get a prodigious amount of white, foamy lubrication. This is a tallow-based shave soap cream that will leave you with a face as smooth as a bambino's bottom!

With an amazingly crisp almond oil fragrance, this lather-rich shave soap cream gives a super-clean shave. The aroma isn't overpowering or overly sweet. Just a classic scent. One reviewer said, "Cella is in a class of its own. The sweet almond smell, but slightly bitter. This hands down produces the best lather I have used. It's really, really easy to get a great lather."

Packaged in a classic red, sturdy container perfect for traveling.

Size: 150g

Made in Italy

Purchased at discount

Compared to Tabac I think it's a slightly better product. Great lather! Great fragrance! Not sure if I would pay the retail price for this product at $50 unless I were a barber. But if you are OK with that price then I think you will be more than satisfied.

Smooth close shave

It took me a few times to figure out how to load this correctly. I like a thicker lather rather than a pillowy one, but this soap can do both easily with good technique. Load the brush for 30 seconds, the whip in a bowl, or hand, or even on your face, and it is perfect. I discovered that this cream, with Latigo aftershave, is pure heaven. Honestly I didn’t like it the first few times I used it but now it’s up there with Castle Forbes Sandalwood for the shaving pleasure. This is on my short list. Great shave cream.

Good performance, good value.

Fantastic lather. Easy to work up. Rinses clean. Pleasant, non invasive scent. 5/5. Mine just arrived today and I could not wait. I scooped an almond size into my bowl using just my finger, and went at it with a damp silver tip badger brush. Added a few drops of warm water along the way. Luxurious rich lather in no time at all. I’m hooked.

A Classic Soap, for a Good Reason

Cella is one of the old classic shave soaps. It’s known for its scent; a sweet, marzipan/almond scent that reminds me or maraschino cherries, but what makes the soap special is it’s lather. If you want a thick, pillowy lather that looks Great in a photo, that’s not what you get from Cella. If you want a great shave, and a lather that is a slick as you want, letting your razor blade glide smoothly over your skin, look no further. Cella produces one of the slickest lathers of any soap I’ve tried, and always lets me get a close, smooth shave. Everyone who uses shave soap should try Cella, at least once.
