59 Reviews |
Some days, the perfect soap is the one with a fragrance that’s not in your face all day. Enter Barrister’s Reserve® Classic. Inspired by 60s vintage aftershaves, Classic’s clean, slightly powdery notes of citrus, lavender, moss, and sandalwood will keep you cool, calm, and collected for as long as you need to be.
  • Clean, classic scent that’s versatile and perfect for any occasion.
  • 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.

Lathers great! Mild Scent, however

If your first experience with a B&M has a strong scent, and that’s what you’d want more of this is not the soap for you. It has a great scent, it’s just very mild and very classic. Your Dad or Grandpa would prefer this, over let’s say a millennial cousin’s taste.

Reserve "Classic" Soap

This is a fabulous tallow-based soap. Loads easily, makes a thick creamy lather. Required a good bit of water. Scent is muted, which is just what I wanted. Arrived quickly, well packaged. Thanks for the recommendation, Will.

Great shave

Excellent, strong scent. Thirsty soap, but makes great lather. Performs well.

Classic Powder Scent

The reserve base is excellent with hard water and lathers exceptionally well. The scent is very light and powdery. It is very versatile and doesn’t clash with unmatched aftershaves or colognes.
