Our wildly-popular Anise soap is now available with over 2% menthol crystals to add some shiver to what is already one of the best shaves on the market at any price. Slap this on your face and prepare to slide. (Essential Oil & Menthol)
Smell is strong and lasting, the menthol kick is fantastic to end the shave. As always delivers great lather and glide. Donnie on 11th Jan 2018
If you like the scent of black licorice, this soap is for you. Frank on 15th Dec 2017
This is the first real mentholated soap I've had the chance to use, and boy was it a treat. But more on that in a minute.
First off - if you're not a lover of anise (licorice), this might not be the soap for you. It's very pronounced. It was the only thing I could smell when opening the box when it arrived. If you're a fan of that delicious aroma, then this will be right up your alley.
As for the menthol, it's definitely icey. I will admit that the first time I lathered it up, I was so focused on finding that menthol chill that I felt a bit underwhelmed. But after actually lathering up and shaving, it was noticeable. Post-shave was amazingly cool and refreshing.
Overall, this is an awesome soap, which shouldn't be a surprise. Slick, rich, made for an awesome shave. Definitely a fan of this one! Justin on 21st Nov 2017
Wasn’t expecting this smell, I don’t like it at all Alex Arnold on 14th Oct 2017
I read the reviews for this soap before I bought it. The smell of black licorice and menthol is fantastic. I have used it twice since I recieved it and it a great soap. Bobk on 13th Oct 2017
Black Ice is the same great lather- thick, rich, super slick, great cushion- as other Stirling soaps. If you love black licorice and menthol as I do, you’ll love this soap. Ben M on 9th Oct 2017
I would to say this is the favorite scent as I love the scent of black licorice so it reminds me of Crows Gumdrops. Sean on 1st Mar 2017
Definitely the most strongest smelling soap I've used so far. Even leaving it out when it first arrived left a lingering smell of black licorice. However, if you enjoy that type of smell than you can't go wrong buying this! Unknown on 16th Feb 2017
Price is excellent and the quantity is above average so you get a good deal.
The lather formed very quickly for me and had staying power. It is very slick but comes off cleanly afterwards. I go with a three pass ritual and the lather doesn't break down through all three passes. I would say the menthol is on the heavier side as well as the scent. Neither is over bearing but have definite presence. Speaking of scent, it is close enough to want to take a bite out of it! Afterwards though, it washes away with very little to no lingering.
This was my first Stirling soap, and I will continue to add to my collection. Dave Stauffer on 15th Feb 2017

Just received my first order. Black Ice shave soap is wonderful!
I am looking forward to trying other products from stirling. I believe that I
have found a company with great products Unknown on 15th Jan 2017
Really really wished the scent was stronger, but otherwise the feel and the menthol overall is amazing. Glad I tried a sample of this as it will probably be in the next order. Unknown on 14th Dec 2016
I am a big fan of Executive Man but wanted to try a few different options. Lathered up with Black Ice and wanted to take a bite out of it! My Mom could have washed my mouth out with this anytime.;)
Great lubrication, great lather and great feel during and after my shave.
Splashed some cold water on my face and "kicked it up a notch". I believe!!!!!! Ready for the day. Great product. FLO on 5th Dec 2016
Loved the scent as soon as I opened it. I leave it open in my room because the scent is so good. I ordered a bunch of samples this time, but this one made it on to my "to buy a full puck" list as soon as I opened it and had my first shave with it. Performance is excellent - nice and slick.
Will definitely have a permanent place in my rotation. Unknown on 1st Dec 2016
This is my top soap for warmer weather! I love the scent, the performance is typical amazing Sterling. The menthol is strong but not too strong, I couldn't imagine trying any of the glacial soaps though... I will always have this soap in my cabinet. I took a month trip to California and only brought this soap and didn't miss any of my others. Sam on 27th Oct 2016
Fantastic smelling soap, brings back memories Todd Rose on 14th Sep 2016
Amazing soap. Smells great, performs amazing. I had anise and black ice trial, and now full puck of it... oliver on 25th Jul 2016
Another fantastically performing soap from Stirling. The menthol is absolutely perfect in this particular puck. A gradual ascension from barely noticeable to it's peak where it's almost on the edge of going overboard, but sustainably maintains an excellent and bearable chill across your face. Not quite to the point of making my eyes water either, but still consider something else if your tolerance to menthol is low. The scent is a bit on the too candy licorice side for me though. I love licorice, but I was hoping for more of an Anise smell. It's undeniable what the inspiration for this recipe is. 5 stars for performance and, though strong, a good smelling puck of sweet delight! Kris Henderson on 19th Jul 2016
If you like licorice then this is definitely the product for you. Very robust black licorice scent! Brad on 12th Jul 2016
I have become a Menthol shaver and this soap if you like Licorice is another great addition to the soap arsenal. A clean and fresh cooling shave with that great post shave skin feel. I was not sure whether to sample or not, but I am glad I did!!!! Doug on 15th Mar 2016
