Laniess & Le Pere Lucien Shaving Soap - Honey

Company: Laniess & Le Pere Lucien Shaving Soap 
Product: Lainess Barber Soap Honey

Having a YouTube channel can be draining at times but once in a while when you least expect it someone sends you a package with some wonderful products like last week. I received two items from Pierre Palmolive Shaving Cream and also a sample of a French artisan’s shaving soap called Lainess made with fresh donkey milk. What comes to mind was the La Savonniere Du Moulin review and how that hard puck caused such a ruckus in the wet shaving community mostly it was the packaging that was puzzling people. We don’t have that silliness here with Lainess but what we do have is a solid performing shaving soap with an amazing scent and post shave feel.


Pierre sample was handmade from the original tub so I can’t comment on packaging but a generous amount was given which I’m sure to use again soon when not doing reviews.

The scent is a sweet honey and let me tell you its a good one too. Sadly, it lasts just a little bit passed the completed shave but don’t expect it to go beyond that.

The best part of this soap is the performance and we have lots of it here. I don’t know what kind of magic donkey milk has but it does wonders for shaving soap. This soap texture is almost cream like which makes it very easy to bowl lather with and It didn’t take much time to whip up some and once it settled down from a foam it started to get very rich and creamy. My brush was so heavy with lather it was dropping off of it but I managed to work it right into the beard with no problems. During the shave, the slickness and glide were tops allowing me to go over trouble spots without fear of irritation. My post shave feel was one for the books as well. No nicks, no cuts, no problems.

So I had a great shave with Lainess and I feel if it wasn’t for Pierre I’ve never would have known about this wonderful shaving soap. So I’m sending this message on to all of you, don’t let this one pass you by.
