Review - K Shave Worx Shaving Soap

Company: K Shave Worx
Product: Hump Day/Citrus Shaving Soap
Kevin and Kelly Daugherty
Founder: Kevin & Kelly Daugherty
Location: Ballston Spa, N.Y.

Early in Dec I was looking for something new on ETSY and stumbled upon K Shave Worx. A husband and wife team working out of Ballston Spa, N.Y. Kevin is an Army Veteran who works in commercial HVAC and is a Certified Health Coach and Kelly is a Clinical Social Worker/Therapist and Clinical Director. When they aren't at work they are busy turning their passion into a business. Not only do they sell shaving soap but also unique, one of a kind makeup and shaving brushes and Kevin has skills in restoring, reworked and honing razors. It’s like a one stop shop. So I contacted Kelly who was so nice to deal with, she was happy to send me two shaving soap samples. Hump Day a citrus blend and The Didge with menthol & eucalyptus.



 I was sent the 1oz tins and they are by far some of the the best sample/travel tins I have come across. Made of heavy gauge tin with a screw on lid. The labels are water proof, ingredients and product name on the bottom and company logo on the top, very durable.

K Shave Worx has some of the strongest scented soaps I have come across in a while and the scents are intoxicating. With names like Cin Ap, Grapelicious, Cure For a Belly Ache, Bumble Nuts, Midnight Cherry Bomb The Didge and the one I’m using for this review Hump Day. The scent on Hump Day is a fruit explosion with notes like Bright Orange, Grapefruit, Cassis, Pineapple and Vanilla. All you have to do is just open the lid and the scent fills the room. On the scent strength scale I would give this one a 9 right out of the tin! Here’s the list of Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Water, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Kokum Butter, Shea Butter, Sodium Lactate, Glycerin


Loading the brush was no problem, I used my Captain’s Choice bowl wet my brush and after a minute I had a rich creamy lather with some impressive peaks. I used my R89 Grand for the shave and had slickness glide and plenty of cushion that was top notch. The post shave feel was also very impressive an all round great performing soap. As a side note scent lasted for many hours after the shave. Kevin is right this soap does KICK ASS!

I really enjoyed shaving with K Shave Worx. I like the bold scented approach they took with their soaps. I think I’ll try the “Cure For a Belly Ache” Lime and Coconut! Hats off to Kevin and Kelly on such a great performing product, but don’t just take my word for it, other well known Wet Shavers in the community have also given them high praise.
