Terror Shaving Soap (Seasonal) (Excelsior Base)
Terror will be available until August 31, 2019.
There is a place. A place that hungers for the warmth of living things, that consumes all who come near. A bitter, empty wasteland, a yawning chasm at the top of the world.
Such places are not meant for men.
The HMS Terror, along with all 129 souls it carried, was lost to the Arctic in 1848, consumed by the endless, empty hunger of the ice. A veteran of the War of 1812 and retrofitted for Arctic exploration, the Terror and its sister ship the HMS Erebus were swallowed by the frigid waters, their crews left to make their way for 600 miles in an attempt to escape the same fate.
But the creeping, bone-shattering cold of the Arctic does not abide weakness. Nor does it have any regard for strength of spirit and stoutness of character. It knows only hunger, and devours without restraint. None survived.
Inspired by the grisly legend of the Terror and the Erebus, our Terror shaving soap gives new meaning to bitter cold. We blended frankincense (the smell of ship’s timbers) with the very essence of cold water to bring to mind the empty wastes of the Arctic Circle, and have incorporated our custom blend of cooling agents to bring an insidious, endless chill to the experience. Tearless and stingless, unlike its mentholated cousin Arctique, Terror is a ghastly revelation, a glimpse into abyss.
Heaven help us if it ever glimpses back.
Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA
Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for about 25 swirls or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water (lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.
Note: This soap is very soft and may be easy to overload. If the lather seems thin or glue-like, continue to add water until a dense, creamy lather forms.
A soft cold
I have nothing bad to say about terror its a lovely soap does take a while to lather but once you get it there super dense and slick. The scent is great could be a little more in your face but good none the less. The chill factor is Suttle and soft. It's not like a sterling glacial soap although the lather is far better. I'd recommend adding it to any collection I know I'm buying more B&M
What a great soap. Open the lid on this product and you are rewarded with a wonderful scent. Lather is great but be aware it likes the water so make sure you use plenty. Cooling builds upon each shave pass. I would love to see this as Wills “mentholated” standard product in his lineup. I could see this as my everyday soap. Only suggestion would be to have the frankincense step up to the forefront a bit more.
Chilling to the bone.
This soap is great! It provides an extremely close shave and smells great. It provides an extremely cold feeling that lasts for quite a while.
Long lasting chili
The best chilling soap and long lasting . Menthol soap on the market.
