This beeswax formula is amazing. Probably more slick than the regular Stirling soap, just as protective, and super easy to lather.  Not to mention the lather is ridiculously smooth and creamy. At $6.50 for a 4.5oz tin I highly suggest everyone pick up a puck to try out. I don't know why Rod doesn't use this formula for his scented line as well. I really hope this becomes a permanent addition to the line and they start offering it in the 5.8oz jars. I'll keep using this next week and comparing it to Naked & Smooth, but I have a feeling this will be one of the only soaps I use for as long as I'm able to get more.

Do you have an ingredients list? I got mass reaction from the regular line, since I'm allergic to almond oil. If this doesnt have almond oil, I will go ahead and buy it to try.

Yes it still has the almond oil. Are you sure that's what caused the reaction and not the scents or lanolin? My face is sensitive to many scent oils and I had problems with pretty much all the scented Stirling soaps I tried (some were worse than others). Performance is far more important to me in soaps so Naked & Smooth was my favorite prior to this beeswax. I'm not sure which I will end up liking more until I get a few more shaves with this soap, but it is pretty great either way.

Is a little hard to find on the website because it's listed under page 2 of "Shave Products" instead of "Shave Soaps", but here's the link.

Thanks for the info! I can confirm my reaction was to the almond oil since I have many other soaps in my den with lanolin (mwf, barrister & mann, mikes, haslinger, shannon, etc) and have no reactions from them. I can also exclude a reaction to the scents since I got the unscented (naked and smooth) for that same reason. I really hate myself for having almond allergy, as i cant use a lot of great soaps like: Stirling, CRSW, Cella, and many other that contain sweet almond oil. My face gets an instant and extreme allergy.

But I might have good news. I talked to Rod on facebook and hes considering making a soap without almond oil! I will instantly buy this if this becomes available. Will buy kong brush at the same time as well

Yes I understand not being able to use great soaps because of sensitivity to an ingredient.  Is unfortunate, but at the same time there are so many great options our there at least you have some that work well for you. I found my face didn't like the coconut oil in the Shannon's Soap NIL I tried.
