Today I’ll be talking about a great shaving soap from Dr. Jon’s called Anne Bonny.
She is regarded as the first woman pirate but little is known about her. What we do know is she was one tuff woman for sure.

This two-ounce tin has a screw on lid with labels showing the product name and scent notes on top and ingredients information along with website URL on the bottom. No side labels.

Review - Soapy Bathman / Irish Waterfall

Company: Soapy BathMan
Product: Irish Waterfall
Founder: Chris
Location: Abbotsford, BC Canada.
Website - Soapy Bathman

If your into wet shaving, chances are you’ve come across someone’s SOTD using Soapy Bathman. I have three great scents from them Leather, Refreshing Mint and Irish Waterfall all fantastic scents and they seem to last forever. I’ve had mine for over two years now and still have plenty of soap left for many more shaves.

The tubs are dark amber with black screw on lids that are filled to 8.0oz. Also a nice wide opening for loading your brush. The top labels are water proof along with the side label which allows you to identify the soap it you are into stacking them.  You also have a bottom label with website and ingredients information.

Review - Wickham Soap Co. / 1912 Cashmere

Company: Wickham Soap Co.
Product: 1912 Cashmere
Founder:  Darron
Location: UK
Website – Wickham

When I first delved into wet shaving Wickham’s Super Smooth lavender was one of my first shaving soaps. Its scent would fill the den and I always looked forward to using it. Then something unexpected happened in social media the word was out that Wickham’s was going out of business. I rushed to the forum’s and it was everywhere. Wickham was closing its doors after inventory was gone.

Each week as I saw inventory on the website shrink I thought the rumors must to be true. It was only a matter of time before they closed the doors for good and the website taken down. Then a metamorphosis the Wickham Soap Company has risen with the power and enthusiasm like never before. Gone is the old shaving soap line called Super Smooth. Taking its place is the completely reformulated shaving soap called 1912.
