Artisan Shaving Soap - Premium Edition with Sheep's Milk
* Retiring so scents for a while. It's a perfect time to get a great deal.*
New scents and restocks will be available soon.
This premium formula is jam-packed with skin food, antioxidants, and anti-aging goodness. You will benefit by blooming with about 1 -2 tsp of water prior to lathering.
This premium base does have some incredible ingredients like plant and botanical extracts, sheep's milk, tallow, castor, and lanolin. Through my research, I have found and added a few more luxury oils and other ingredients that make this soap measures above what I have offered previously.
Expect super slickness. Expect a great cushion. Expect a great lathering experience. Expect the post-shave to be phenomenal without a greasy feel.

On top of the excellent utility as a shaving soap, the Success scent smells amazing and leaves your skin and beard feeling hydrated. I cannot recommend this enough.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review of your purchase. I appreciate it very much.
I ordered a tub of Paradox, which is an incredible scent all on it's own. My order was shipped immediately and well packaged. Shaving with this soap is a different experience. The slickness is top notch and the post shave feel is butter soft. I can't recommend this soap enough.
Thank you Marty for taking the time to leave a review. I am super glad you're enjoying the shaving soap.
The performance of this soap blew me away. The post shave feel was so good, I almost forgot to actually do my post shave routine. It is a low structure lather, so don't expect gobs of lather exploding for your bowl or off your face.
My only gripe would be the scent. I picked up Success, and yes it is Aventus, but it arrived on a hot day and sat in a hot mailbox and it did soften/melt a little, which (I believe) led to some base funk. I don't know if the goats milk can spoil, something is going on. I cannot knock of any stars because we cannot control the weather. I'm just super happy is performs as well as it does.
If you haven't tired Lisa's shave soaps, or are on the fence, purchase some samples and see for yourself. I'll make another purchase this winter and hope to avoid melting and potentially base funk. Got my eye on Somali Rose or Mariner!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
The scent and performance of this soap is TOP NOTCH and is among the best shave soap I have used. LNHC products are TOP TIER.
I'm a bowl latherer and despite loading my brush 4 times I could only get a lather the consistency of melted whip cream. Very runny. The many extra herbal ingredients probably are the root cause of an unstable lather. Also, the scent, while nice, didn't remind me of a barbershop scent, but more of the floral scent I remember when I accompanied my mother to a hair salon when I was a child. As is it's probably going to end up being used as a bath/hand soap.
