Cosmo - This special edition shaving soap is presented in an anthracite-colored aluminum tin with an intricately stamped metallic label in antique brass. The triple-milled hard soap is intended to be used with a shaving brush.

Fragrance: Highlights the zesty fragrance of Sicilian Citrus combined with dark and peppery spice notes of coffee, coriander and nutmeg. At its base, you'll find the timeless notes of vetiver, sandalwood and incense used throughout history in shaving and facial preparations.

The updated Cosmo Special Edition features the characteristic fragrance of the collection and uses our 'Beta 4.3' formulation - a further step forward in the evolution of our shaving soap in pursuit of enhanced lubrication and protection during the shave and enhanced post-shave skin feel.

The renewed formulation includes a larch tree extract which reduces trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), making it an excellent choice for those skin types that tend to dryness. It also includes a new vegetal compound, based on castor oil, that gives a lubricating action and helps the razor mechanical action.

How to use: Saponificio Varesino Shaving Soap formulations contain soluble ingredients that need to be activated with water. For best results use the following steps to prepare your soap:

* Wet the soap: cover the surface with a thin veil of hot water for 2-3 minutes. 

* Wet the brush: Run the brush under warm water to saturate the bristles. This will prime it to accept the shaving cream or soap. Shake off any excess water.

* Add shaving soap: Run the bristles over the shaving soap. Because you’re dealing with a quality soap, you actually don’t need to use much to create an amazing lather.

* Work into a lather: Using circular motions, work the brush around your beard and enjoy the scent of your shaving soap. The circular motions will also raise hairs from the skin’s surface for easier removal with the razor.

* Rinse the brush: Once you’re done, run the brush under some cold water. Use your fingers to separate the bristles to get all of the soap out of the hair. Squeeze the excess water from the brush and set it back in its stand.

Nice Stuff

Very easy to use, had a great shave first time out with it. I love the scent, although I can't really pin it down or detect the listed notes. Expensive, but glad to have gotten it.


Customer review

yeah agree with above - the perfume is addictive, performance superlative, lasts for ever


Customer review

This is a great performing hard soap that produces mountains of very slick lather without much effort. I can only compare the new 4.2 formula to SV beta 4.1 and didn't notice any big difference. The scent is unique and very pleasing if you like leathery scent w/ a hint of coffee. The scent is very long-lasting, however, and almost overpowers the AS. All around, a highly recommended soap that justifies the premium pricing.


Customer review

One of my favorites.The aroma is mild but persistent.After soap+AS Cosmo,I never wear perfume-it would have been superfluous.

Customer review

Let me start by saying that I am a fan of all the SV soaps I have tried so far, and notice little difference between formulas. Cosmo has a scent that is WAY different from other SV scents, it is a dark, coffee, sandalwood, amber type of scent that reminds me a bit of Barrister & Mann Leviathan. Not exactly the same, but in the same dark scent category. The puck is hard as a rock and makes a terrific lather. Very slick and plenty of cushion, great post shave moisturizing as well. The Cosmo is a bit more expensive than the others, but the scent is one of a kind and the puck should last a very long time. The scent is not for everyone but I find myself sniffing the tin in between shaves, very well made scent and a great shaving soap formula.
