Moon Soaps is a one-woman show out of Corralitos, CA. Her passion for all things bath and body has lead to a business creating nurturing, luxurious, and divinely-scented products handmade from scratch. Almost every aspect of the business is done in-house from formulating and crafting the products to designing labels and packaging. You'll be over the . . . moon over Moon Soaps.

This formula is a very soft cream comparable to the consistency of room temperature butter. Loading your brush couldn’t get any easier, just rub a small amount into the damp bristles with your finger then bowl lather or go straight to a face lather. The lather produced is thick, stable, protective, and incredibly slick.

Inspired by the scent of almond that reigns supreme among Italian barbershop comes Amaretto Speciale. Mandorla (Italian for almond) is a classic scent and flavoring found in cookies to shaving soap. This version leads with a nutty liqueror aroma with a dark cherry thread and a bit of buttery almond biscotti. You will fall in love with this gourmet goodness.

Size: 6oz.

Ingredients:

Water, Beef Tallow, Stearic Acid, Shea Butter, Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Fragrance Oil

Amaretto

I just tried this cream for the first time today. I love the scent. The almond and cherry scent is evenly balanced and compliment each other very well. I got a real nice lather and the slickness was good. I recommend the Ameretto Speciale.

In response to previous review

I ended up finishing the product recently, I was the reviewer who previously gave this 1 star and have to say I’m pretty impressed with both the performance and scent. I still have my gripes with it being a cream but I’m not as upset as I was initially. WCS still hasn’t deleted the old review at my request so I had to write a new one. It’s worth a try if you’re fine with creams, I’m a new fan of the brand and got their other products which are the actual soaps.

Wonderful cream

First off, especially because of a review below, this IS a cream. although, at least with mine, it seems closer to a croap. The scent is fantastic. It resembles cella but I think it’s better than cella. The consistency is nice and creates a nice comfortable lather with good slickness. Using it I got a nice slick close shave with no irritation on both passes (I am a WTG, XTG shaver). While I love the scent, I’d say it’s maybe medium strength out of the tub and closer to lighter while shaving but still slightly detectable. I know they’re working on aftershaves so in the future I will have to pick one up. Recommended product. Last thing is there is a pretty good amount of product.

Amaretto Speciale

I’m fond of almond scent shavings creams. My go to cream is, Taylor of Old Bond street Almond and Cella almond (somewhere between a cream and a soap). I’ve found that Moon Amaretto is far superior to those products. It quickly produces a lather, great cushion and leaves my face moisturized . It also conditions my brush. This is my new favorite, far exceeding my expectations.
