Declaration Grooming Dayman Artisan Shaving Soap, 4oz - Milksteak Base

4 reviews
We currently have 16 in stock.

Dayman and Nightman were developed in tandem as complementary scents. Neither shares a single ingredient in common but are designed to be able to be used interchangeably Dayman soap, Nightman splash, vice versa, you get the idea).

Dayman is bright and happy. Very citrus forward with support from salt and patchouli (don't let patchouli here fool you, it's only present for the implication). This is a scent for everyone. For bright sunny days, karate, and friendship.

BASE: Milksteak is my tongue-in-cheek name for the culmination of all of my soap crafting experience to date. While the name may be whimsical, it was an incredibly difficult decision to deprecate Bison and Icarus - one I would not make without full confidence that I was releasing not only the best soap base I have ever developed, but one of the finest soap bases ever created.

Over three years of customer feedback, research, theory crafting and, of course, love, went into this soap base. I focused on ease of use (softer than Icarus), slickness, and post-shave - all the hallmarks of a great soap.

DG Dayman is perfection

This soap, this masterpiece of a shaving soap creates a rich protective lather so so so good I could not believe it. Quickly lathers, my Simpson's Trafalgar T3 brush was filled with abundant and thick lather. I also enjoy the citrusy aroma. DG Dayman is a great soap. I would pay 2x more for this soap, no problem.

The base is one of the finest in existence and scent is subjective, though I reckon most people will love this scent. I did. Don't let the butterfinger below, who clearly doesn't know how to lather or shave, deter you from this product. It's incredible

What's good for some may not be good for all. I'm afraid this is the opinion that I have to take here. Apart from a possible dud blade in my Mach III razor and cutting my lip, the lather from the sample of this shaving cream was disappointing to say the least. The scent, while OK was not for me. It's a pity as I would like to have tried more of the Declaration Grooming range.
