Review - Dr. Jon's Krampus Shaving Soap

Company: DR. Jon’s
Product: Krampus Shaving Soap
Location: Delaware Ohio

Last week a white box was dropped at my front door by the carrier because it wouldn’t fit in our mail box. I looked down and there I saw a picture of DR. Jon with his Top Hat & Glasses sporting a great mustache. The front panel of the box read “The Cure for the Common Shave!”. For the contents of the box was most certainly uncommon, Krampus had arrived. Those of you not familiar with this folk lore, Kranpus would punish bad girls and boys during Christmas giving them coal unlike Santa Clause who rewards good children with presents, this is very popular in European countries.

Product: Shaving Soap           
Founder: Amanda Brooker

I finally had the opportunity to try Long Rifle Soaps. After a few email exchanges Amanda agreed to send me a few samples of her shaving soaps, but before we dive into them I asked Amanda how she became involved in soap making and here is her reply.

Review - Jeeves Of Hudson Street

Company: Jeeves of Hudson Street
Product: Bowtie Shaving Soap
Founder: Bryon Postlethwait
Veteran Owned & Operated Company

When I collected the mail last week I didn’t have to opened anything to tell that someone sent me shaving soap. The scent from the pucks just came right through the packaging. Tobacco, Barber Shop and Mountain Rain all from Bryon Postlethwait the owner and founder of Jeeves of Hudson Street. I sent him a letter asking if I could do a review of his soaps and if he had any samples. So from what he sent me I selected Mountain Rain to do this review.

Review - Cold River Soap Works

Company: Cold River Soap Works
Product: Select Shaving Soap and After Shave Balm
Founder: Larry Jones
Location: Baldwinsville, N.Y.

Sometimes you have to talk about presentation first and I’m going to do that with Cold River Soap Works. When they first arrive you’ll notice how each item is carefully packaged. Once removed you are presented with a classic heavy gauge rust resistant tin sporting a very large 4 inch opening for loading your brush. The lid on this tin leaves no doubt that its going to stay on until you decide otherwise. The label is classic black and white and it’s done so well it definitely demands your attention. Included with the soap, a black invitation size envelope sealed with what appears to be a replica of a waxed letter (S) for SELECT. Inside, a card welcoming and thanking you for purchasing Cold River Soap Products. Nice touch.
