Simply Bee Shaving Soap – 125ml (13.50)
Being a man who chooses to wear his hair short, oppose to being bald, I shave my head regularly. As this is a weekly task and covers a substantial surface area, I invested in a quality shaving brush and have tried a variety of shaving soaps over the years.
The qualities of a really good shaving soap are the following; primarily lubrication! The soap needs to encourage the easy slide of a sharp blade, cleanly over the skin, without drag or irritation. Foam, the soap should foam up and stay foamy for as long as the shave is taking place. This enables one to clearly see the areas already shaved. Bonus qualities include ingredients that calm the skin, because we all know the shaving process can promote redness, irritation and even spots. So anti-inflammatory, soothing and healing properties are all good.
This hand made shaving soap from Simply Bee natural products ticks all the boxes. It is primarily a vegetable derived glycerine based soap made with coconut oil, castor oil and palm kernel oil with added bees wax, antimicrobial propolis and honey. No synthetics, no perfumes, no artificial colours or preservatives.
It comes in a clear plastic 125ml pot with screw lid, making it practical for use when travelling. Unscrew the lid and apply a damp shaving brush, whip up a lather of long lasting, honey fragranced bubbles that soften the skin, lubricate a blade and soothes the skin. pop the lid back on and the soap is hygienically sealed ready for next time. The effect is a clean smooth shave and soothed, irritation free, moisturised skin.
If you’re already a shaving brush and soap user, take a moment to read the ingredients in your current brand of shaving soap. If you find it full of unnecessary additives, fillers, artificial colours and perfumes, then it’s time to throw it away! If you struggle with shaving creams or gels, get through them too quickly or are left with skin irritation, consider this more natural alternative.
