Clubman - Shaving Pinaud Shaving Soap

Company: Clubman
Product: Shaving Pinaud Shaving Soap


When I started this hobby I was testing out what I liked I ran across many wet shavers using Clubman products. I was already using the aftershaves but never venture to anything else. Then along came the holidays and Clubman sent out an email blast with an offer I could not refuse. So I picked up a couple of things Shaving Cream, Shaving Soap even pomade all kinds of goodies.
The shaving cream disappointed me so much that I left all the other products I purchased on the den shelf where I promised I would go back to them another day but that was two years ago. I recently revisit these products last week so the first one I will talk about today is the Clubman Pinaud Shaving Soap.

I had forgotten how surprised I was to find out the size of the container. Since it was such a long time ago I can’t recall what I paid for it but I’m glad it was on sale I would have been pissed if I paid full price for it. I’ve seen this go for $10.00 to about $5.00 so look out for the cheapest way to get yours because it’s only 2.oz some report it as 2.4oz. I’d like to know what makes this mass produced shaving soap in a plastic tub so expensive?

The scent is nice but very faint I find no trace of any information regarding what the notes are not even on the Clubman website. I heard they had vanilla listed at one point but now that has been taken down. In fact, some categorized it as a masculine scent but I’m not so sure about that. I have visited this site before and it's full of errors and omissions. Maybe they need to do a once over because I’ve called them in the past with a few things I've found wrong. If you do have this product let me know what you think it’s scent is.

When it comes to lathering this soap does a great job. My bowl lather produced an amazing amount of it too. The lather got right into the beard providing some great coverage with a nice rich creamy lather. The slickness and glide where tops allowing me to go over trouble spots with no irritation at all. Although I did spot a nick after looking into the mirror I can’t really blame the soap because as I talk and shave this is what happens. I’ve been noticing if I keep silent this usually solves the problem but it's hard to do when you need to comment on the shave for your YouTube Channel.

So, regardless of the 2oz high price for this mass produced soap, I did have a great shave. I will use this again in my rotation but after it's gone I don’t think I’m going to reorder this again. Not because I didn’t like it but because the price structure is off for just 2oz. They have to give us more soap for a product like this maybe 4oz for $5.00
