|Ingredients:||Coconut Oil, Distilled Water, Grapeseed Oil, Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Menthol, Sodium Lactate|
|Instructions for Use:||Lather the pre-shave soap in your hands and massage into your beard or take the bar directly to your beard. Wash as you normally would using a facial wash. You can either rinse completely or build your shaving lather directly over the preshave soap|
This is a mild vegan soap that was formulated specifically for the face. It has added glycerin and a bit of menthol to soften the beard and prepare the face for shaving. This level of menthol is cooling but not in a Glacial kind of way. (Unscented & Menthol)
Started using this before I shave and it really makes a world of difference. Your beard will be much softer and you'll have a much better shave. I like to pair this with a strong smelling soap that is mentholated to wake me up in the morning! Unknown on 5th Sep 2017
I can't believe how much easier my shaves are now because I have a very tough beard and although I've been using various good-quality facial washes like Neutrogena and L'Oreal Men Expert they still don't do quite the same job of cleaning and softening my stubble. I love how this soap leaves my skin feeling spotlessly-clean and how it gives a nice cooling sensation (I'm such a menthol freak!) which is really invigorating. There's no scent to this soap so it won't spoil the scent of anything you lather up with or apply after you shave. I also find that this pre-shave soap helps to improve the blade glide because of the extra slickness, as Darren stated. Rod and Mandy, this product gets two thumbs-up from me! Jeff on 3rd Sep 2017
I used to think that pre-shave products were a waste of money. But, after I starting using a shavette, I realized I needed a little more slickness on my face. I gave this soap a try and noticed that it improved my shave with added slickness and protection. I also enjoyed putting a mentholated background to all my shaving soaps. Darren on 15th Jul 2017
Great cooling sensation, great pre shave soap. I use this before every shave. Alex on 7th Jul 2017
This pre-shave soap feels amazing. It has the perfect amount of menthol and leaves my skin feeling fresh and taut. Derek on 31st May 2017
Nope, no longer using oils. Best pre shave soap i have used so far. Softened the beard, and had the perfect amount of menthol! Just enough to make my face cool and refreshed for my entire shave. Cut the bar into two pieces to make it last longer. Great product. Unknown on 2nd May 2017
Hello, I'm Frank from the Netherlands and these are my thoughts on this soap.
My skin is irritated very fast, so I tried a lot of different pre shave products and came to the conclusion that they did not bring me significant better results regarding the quality of the shave and/or a reduction of skin irritation. I hesitated to purchase this soap but I'm very glad I did. The quality of my shaves are better and my face feels much less irritated. I love a blast of menthol in my after shave splash but not in a regular face soap. In this soap the balance is perfect. I'm not using it as pre shave soap only, its the soap I use exclusive for washing my face now. My face feels much smoother since I've started using this soap. Frank on 6th Mar 2017
Great product wish for a little stronger menthol, works well with unscented shave soap. Ross, IA on 2nd Mar 2017
As I find again and again with Stirling, I am surprised at what a difference this simple bar of soap makes. My face is remarkably smoother, softer, and less irritated. A great product that I doubt I will ever do without again. Rich on 15th Dec 2016
I've been rubbing this right on my face after I get out of the shower, and letting it sit there while I get the rest of my shaving stuff ready. As others have said, the menthol does seem lighter than some of Stirling's other soaps, but I don't really have a problem with it. I use this in conjunction with other mentholated soaps and get plenty of freezy face just fine that way.
Works well, does what its supposed to, great product, great company. Jared on 14th Sep 2016
I am not sure if I am using it correctly, but I wish there was more menthol. Maybe I am just use to the glacial eskimo tuxedo soap. The X Man on 23rd Aug 2016
Excellent cushion added to my shaves with more than enough slickness and a lasting coolness thanks to the menthol. A mainstay in my den. Thanks! Charles on 16th Jun 2016
Alway love all my Stirling soap for both bath and shaving. This too is great soap but I would like it to be a little more menthol. It seems a little light on menthol vs any of the other menthol soaps I have gotten from Stirling. Scott Berry on 21st Apr 2016
I've tried both the plain and mentholated pre-shave soaps. I prefer the mentholated version. I would like it to have a little more menthol, but otherwise super happy.
I own all (yes, all) of the PAA (Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements) pre-shave soaps. I've used a half bar of each of them. The Stirling pre-shave soaps perform just as well as PAA and are less expensive.
I cut these in half to extend their life a little. Jerry on 23rd Oct 2015
