Barrister's Reserve® Cool Shaving Soap
77 Reviews |
As clean and versatile scents go, Barrister's Reserve® Cool is refreshingly crisp. Based on a classic Italian barbershop staple, notes of bergamot, lemon, and lavender combine for a bracing, invigorating scent versatile enough to wear with your favorite cologne.
  • Light, fresh scent reminiscent of your neighborhood barbershop. Please note that, unlike the aftershave, Barrister's Reserve® Cool soap does not contain menthol.
  • Absolute hard water tolerance.
  • Incredibly creamy, dense lather
  • Superlative slickness
  • Excellent post-shave feel

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.

Fantastic soap.

I truly enjoy the Reserve line of soaps mainly because of my hard water dilemma. The soap doesn't acknowledge any hardness of the water and lathers smoothly and smelling nice. Also, the soap is thirsty, so hydrate that brush more than you normally would - even adding too much water seems beneficial.

Отличное мыло.

Мыло которое будет освежать ваше лицо после бритья в течении часа и даже чуть больше. Отличный аромат для летнего дня. Рекомендую!

Lathers nice, smells good.

I am by no means an expert judge of soaps. However, both that I ordered smell pretty good. They seem to lather nicely and provide good lubrication. I haven’t bought a lot of solid soaps, so we’ll see how long it lasts. There was not as much in the jars as I thought there’d be. But, my experience has been that hard soaps last a pretty long time.

Reserve base is excellent. The scent on this is such a classic barbershop scent. If you are looking to get somebody into wet shaving, this would be a good starting point.

Totally surprised

Well, the way I purchased this soap is this... Barrister and Mann sent me a sample of Cool Reserve. I was blown away. I was so hyped I gave the sample away to my buddy and then I immediately ordered the soap. I kept kicking myself for giving the sample away cuz I wanted to smell it while I waited for my arrival. Bruh.... this stuff blew me away. My friend said it smells sporty, indeed it does. But it’s complex and deep and utterly left me on the floor of the bathroom consuming the scent over and over. Imagine Aqua Velvet Blue has n steroids. This stuff is amazing! And of course, the reserve line is probably one of the best performing soaps I’ve ever used. Will is a genius!
