Long Rifle Soap Co. New Formula!

Company: Long Rifle Soap Company
Product: Base Reformulation
Founder: Amanda
Location: Sturgeon Bay, WI

There comes a point when the soap maker has to improve on his or her base formula. The soap maker always strives to make it the best it could be. When it comes down to it, the scent is only 40% of what makes a great shaving soap. The wet shaving space is growing and with that growth comes new ideas new ways of doing things and for this reason, you must keep improving on your base. If you fail to do so you could wind up closing the doors like we’ve seen so many others do in the past.

I first learned about the Long Rifle Soap Company when I started in wet shaving and Amanda the owner has a great hold on what works for her brand and grew that product line and business to what it is today. I’ve made videos with her products and have found them to be excellent quality and performance and now with this new base formulation, she has once again made advances. I’m honored that Amanda reached out to me a few weeks ago to test the new base and I’ve made it clear I would be as honest and upfront with my review and the truth of it is the new base is fantastic!

The texture of the puck is a lot softer than I remember which makes it perfect for bowl lathering.
The new scent with notes of Rosemary, Mint, Tea tree, and Menthol is a winner in my book. it’s was surprisingly strong from the puck and increased as it was being lathered. The addition of menthol was a bonus for menthol heads like me and added to the post-shave feel.

The lather was thick and creamy and allow me to get full coverage getting right into the beard with no problems. Due to the high slickness and glide, I was able to go over trouble spots without the worry of irritation and the post shave feel was truly one to experience.

Amanda has a winner here and making changes to this new base is not necessary. Her hard work and dedication have paid off and the only thing I can say is when is it coming out?
