Barrister's Reserve® Cool Shaving Soap
63 |
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 Fragrance in a Superb Soap

Floid Blue is a legend among traditional wet shavers and Barrister and Mann's take on this iconic scent is superb. The scent is cool and sophisticated, perfect for the office, date night or just relaxing outside on a beautiful day. While the Barrister's Reserve line had been on my radar for some time, it was the inclusion of the free samples of aftershave with my B&M orders that finally convinced me that I needed to try the soaps. Thankfully my lovely wife made included both the Spice and Cool scents as part of my Valentine's Day gift and I couldn't be happier. The Barrister's Reserve soaps have a reputation as being a bit finicky when it comes to lathering but I have had no such trouble. While these soaps may not lather as readily as the Glissant or Excelsior base, they should not be too troublesome for experienced wet shavers. The single biggest suggestion I can make to people new to this soap base is to add plenty of water as you build your lather. The Reserve soaps provides an exemplary post-shave feel and my den will not be without these soaps in the future!

Classic Cool

This is a great scent! Cool and clean (and the wife likes it). Smells like a fresh trip to the barber shop. The Reserve base consistently delivers a great lather as well.
