After the Rain was the second scent we ever released and is very near to our hearts. Like a walk through a forest after a spring shower with notes of wet pine, muted lavender, cedar, and white pepper.

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.

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Water, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Butter, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Yogurt, Buttermilk, Egg Whites, Coconut Milk, Goat's Milk, Tocopheryl Acetate, Maltodextrin, Milk Protein, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract,  Arctium lappa (Burdock) Root Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Silk Amino Acids

Fantastic performance but very weak scent

This is one of the best performing shave soaps I have ever used. Very slick and creamy lather. The scent profile is extremely pleasant, but I find it quite weak. I have trouble picking it up while shaving. I really wish the scent was stronger.


Customer review

After the rain??? I’ve never been more wrong about a scent. Definitely not what I was expecting. To me it smells like a crawfish boil. That sweet aroma of spices and baby lobsters in a boiling pot of water. Not awful by any means and definitely not what I think of after a rain smelling like. I bought this for the hype this milk steak base has been given. The hype is real. It’s absolutely legit in every way. Kinda scary to think that it can be this good. Almost too slick in both primary and residual almost making for use of added pressure to razor to keep from laterally moving across your face. Post shave is phenomenal and easy of lather to build is effortless. If you are new to DE shaving do not get this. It will ruin the hobby for you. No other soap is like this. I still prefer B M and A E just for scent reasons and their performances are right up there with this one. I will definitely have one container in my den at all times.


Customer review

Top tier performance similar to B&M. The scent is good but, subjective as scents are, not my favorite. It has some nice complexities to it, but overall it smells like ginger. Again, I do like it, but I won't buy it again since I love other Declaration Grooming scents far more.

Very unique scent properties. Fresh smell to it, very much in line with the product name. As typical with L&L, great lather and very nourishing for the skin. Recommended!
