Review - Barberry Coast Shave Co. Product Lavender Royale

Company: Barberry Coast Shave Co.
Product Lavender Royale


I finally had the opportunity to try Royale Lavender a follow up to the successful Ascent the company’s first shaving soap. Royale is a large white puck. It was wrapped in a white thick tissue paper but when removed a layer of plastic wrap was around the puck. 

The scent is very pleasing but if your looking for a strong scented soap you’ll not going to find it here. On the scent scale it’s a 2 from the puck and a 3 lathering. They describe the scent as classic, masculine (not too flowery) and clean with a slight herbaceous note.

Let me talk about lathering. This soap produced an amazing amount but you have to work for it. This soap is extremely thirsty. My first attempt I was 




disappointed in the results so I went back to the website and found that they advise you to bloom it by soaking the full puck for 4 or more min before use. I used my G20 Scuttle and had the puck soaking in the sink for 5 min. I decided the best way to do this was to hold the puck while loaded the brush. Then using a dry scuttle adding drops of water, I started to lather and it exploded. Once you apply the rich creamy lather to your face you’ll notice the moisturizing properties right away and during your shave the slickness and glide will stay with you right to the end. 

So it’s a nice soap would have loved stronger scent but that’s just me. This soap is pricey at $22.00 for 3.8oz but it should last you a while.  The Website said it’s completely safe for your skin so if you’re having issues with other soaps you currently own you might want to give this one a try.
