Brian Pollard found making shaving soap very interesting. After purchasing a few shaving soaps online and getting horrible results he wanted to try it for himself. After many attempts failed batches, research, money and time he had the eureka moment and made a batch that was worthy of production. In fact, this current formula if it didn't work would have probably been his last. After using it himself for a while he decided to give some to his friends on Facebook and the feedback was all positive. So now a hobby is turning into a business and Brian offers two shaving soaps Barbershop Clean and Original Formula which is what this review will be based on.

The shaving soaps come in a heavy gauge tin with a screw on lid. A western style label that fits perfectly in the center on the lid. Each tin is 4.5oz the opening is more than ample to load your brush from.

The Original Formula musk scent is pre blended from a supplier. Brian decided to concentrate on the soaps performance making changes to the formula and once perfected then focus on things like fragrances and essential oil blending. I personally found the scent to be right on target for a musk but according to Brian he needs to educate himself in this area a little bit more I think he did a great job.    

The most outstanding aspect about this soap is its lather. I had an easy time creating a thick creamy lather with great coverage. Some of the best I’ve used in a while along with slickness and glide that was just as good and a bonus post shave feel at the end. The scent did last an hour after the shave but it would have been nice to follow up with an aftershave.

Brain is currently concentrating on his new website and plans to start selling his products from there instead of just the ETSY location alone. I have to say I had a great shave with the Original Formula the musk scent was spot on for me and the over all performance was equal to other artisan’s shaving soaps I've tried.

Its a review of my Shave with the soap not an ad if it comes off like one then sorry but this was my experience. Brian is a new artisan and wanted my feedback I also asked him a few question on this journey into soap making. I compared his shaving soap to other artisans that have already been established. I find no difference so I think he's on the right track

yes seriously, I read up more about the company history, testing, trial and error but very little about the soap itself. I mean 90% of the written up review has nothing to do with the soap itself.

Its fine, just think maybe you should of concentrated on describing the soap, after all you had positive experience with it. Details for the product was what you are missing.

Maybe your right. I'll try to focus more on the product instead of the background thanks for pointing this out. BTW what is it about the soap your looking for maybe I can answer your question about it now. also if you find the article lacking in anyway you can always watch the video
