Posted this after Xmas but worth a reminder DE Shaving classic!

Available as a 75 grams shaving cream stick
For professionals who loves traditional shaving
Soaps build a very thick and lubricating lather easily
Great sweet fragrance that will take you back to the 'olden' days
Leaves the skin very smooth and supple with a long lasting scent

It has the most slippery, effective lather is one that is wet almost to the point of being runny. The scent is a classic barbershop note. This soap moisturises well, lathers well, and provides enough lubrication that you can use it with any of your razors. It does require some fine-tuning as far as figuring out how much water to use when lathering. A Fantastic stuff, especially given its price making Arko Barber's Shaving Cream Soap sticks the King of the inexpensive soaps.

You tease.

many don't like the smell (I kinda like it) but for sure it's an amazing lather at a great price.

Lasts ages. This would last me a lifetime.

I like the scent but I have tried this soap a few times but it makes my skin itchy.

Derby sticks are currently a better buy, but then again they don't smell as nice as arko but defiantly last longer and lather faster.

bought a set of 4 in November 15 and I'm still on my first stick! after you use these you won't touch gel again, just give the can to the wife to shave her legs! lol

Some guys who get irritation mash it into a small bowl and lather from there, if you rub it on your face and have sensitive skin they can sometimes be a bit harsh, it takes a good wash to get all that slippiness off my face after I use it.
I use a lemon cologne splash afterwards as an antiseptic after shaving. strangely it's helped with my dry skin.

Strange how we all have different responses to smells. Boyf is very sensitive to certain scents and he says Arko's infamous scent doesn't bother him at all - "it just smells like soap". No skin irritation either (though skin sensitivity is a personal thing too).

The price has gone up to £9.99. Still not bad...

£9.49 here, weirdly from the same seller! amazon.co.uk/gp/…new

Was £7.49 for ages though.
