Review - Viking Soap • Cosmetic / Citron Shaving Soap

Company: Viking Soap • Cosmetic
Product: Viking Shaving Soap / Citron
Founder: Andrew Hoiberg
Location: Ames, IA
Last week on twitter one of my followers had officially announced they had opened for business the Viking Soap Cosmetic company. The roll out included a line of Shaving Soap, Balms, Aftershaves and Body Soaps. I looked over shaving soaps and found these offerings Hedeby, Ironside, Old Norse and Citron which is the one I purchased and the basis of this review.

The packaging used with this soap is a plastic cobalt blue tub with a black screw on lid. A bright yellow label on top with the Viking logo right in the center. Two side labels are present the first allowing to easily read what’s inside if you happen to stack your soaps and the second with ingredients list website and company location along with how many ounces 5.5oz

Review - Skyline Soapworks Shaving Soap / Sandalwood

Company: SkylineSoapWorks
Product: Shaving Soap / Sandalwood
Founder: Jennifer Anderson
Location: Strasburg, VA

Let me preface this article with an update to Jennifer Anderson’s Shaving soap. I thought it would be a good idea to contact Jen in order to let her know I was going to finally release a review of her shaving soap. It’s been close to a year since I purchased the puck and she really wanted to know what I thought. During our conversation I had two issues which I disclosed to her. These issues have been corrected plus, her soap will be featured in a new subscription box called “The Shaving Room”. What a difference a year makes!

Review - Suds Bar Soap / Shave Soap for Men

Company: Suds Bar Soap
Product: Shave Soap for Men
Founder Aggie / Kim
Location: Dover, DE
Also mentioned: Bawston & Tucker Solid Cologne

A few months ago I was about to give a review on the Chisel Shaving Club Subscription box when they just disappeared. I think they only lasted about 3 -4 months. I received two of their subscription boxes for review which I must say I happened to like. In one of them was a Shave Soap for Men from the company Suds Bar Soap and in that same box was a Solid Cologne from Bawston & Tucker. The big surprise happened to be the Chisel razor which was included with every starter box.
