This is a mild vegan soap that was formulated specifically for the face. It has added glycerin to soften the beard and prepare the face for shaving. (Unscented)
I wanted an unscented pre soap. This is great. I wash my face with, then towel off and rub the dry soap on my face as an lather enhancer/Protective layer. Works great. The bar is big and should last a long time. Highly recommended. jim l. on 24th Dec 2016
I really liked the generous size of this soap bar and that it didn't have a scent that could potentially clash with any of your other shaving products or colognes. It didn't agree with my skin (burned long after I finished shaving), but I have run into this before with another artisan soap as well, so I chalk it up to my skin or maybe a bad batch. If you don't have sensitive skin, you may not have any problems with this soap. If you do have sensitive skin, you may want to think twice before purchasing this soap (or know someone else who would enjoy your soap if it doesn't work for you). David on 25th Jul 2016
Just great scent-free soap . . . Plan to order some bath soap because this face bar is great. Chas Magdanz on 10th Mar 2016
I'll begin by stating that I have somewhat sensitive skin, and every other Stirling product I've used (save SDM) has been great. That said, this product did not agree with my face at all. I used it to wash/prepare my beard in the shower before shaving on three separate occasions, and every single shave felt like my face was on fire. I'm certain that this pre-shave soap was the culprit, as the other products used for each shave had never before given me any issues. I'm surprised that no other reviewers have had this experience.

I've tried both the plain and mentholated pre-shave soaps. I slightly prefer the mentholated version.
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
I Used This As A PreShave. Its Very Good. It Has Improved My Shave By A Very Large Margin. Would Recommend To Any Wet Shaver. Ramon L Gonzalez Jr on 22nd Oct 2015
My preshave routine includes a long hot shower. I lather up with
Stirling's preshave soap, and let that the lather just sit there on my beard while I go about the rest of my showering business. After a good rinse at the end my beard is soft and supple. I've tried other preshave products, but this is the one that works for me. Your mileage may vary. Unknown on 14th Sep 2015
I've always liked the idea of a pre-shave oil, but the ones I tried clogged my pores and left my face feeling oily.
This soap cleanses the face and leaves a slickness that is not oily yet enhances the performance of any shaving soap or cream and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized after the shave. This soap is now a permanent part of my morning routine.
It's also a great facial soap when I'm not shaving. spidey9 on 29th Aug 2015
