Declaration Grooming Artisan Shaving Soap Samples, Milksteak Base

7 reviews
These samples are just enough to get a good feel for the soap.

From Declaration Grooming:

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.

I hope you enjoy it.

- Scott

Since I began shaving with top notch supplies, every soap I have used came in a solid "puck" form. L&L Grooming Company's soaps however are soft. To me they are comparable to the "tubbed" creams I use which are made by a 200+ year old British purveyor. That being said though, I realize that the definition of soap may be subjective from manufacturer to manufacturer. With these I transferred an almond nut sized dollop of product into my shaving bowl and quickly whipped up an impressive lather. Regardless of consistency, L&L's soaps are the best soaps or creams I have ever used. Thank you buffalo tallow? I have never used a product that left my skin as soft or well nourished as these. They also contributed to extremely close shaves. At the time of purchase I was able to buy 4 scents... Bandwagon, After the Rain, Trismegistus, and Cuir et Épices. All eclectic, unique, or one could say wonderfully uncommon. Each tends to linger for awhile post shave but not obnoxiously. Be aware that these samples come in tins the size of lip balm containers but they offer plenty of shaves and will undoubtedly lead to your becoming a lifelong patron. Can't wait to try L&L's vast array of other scents including their seasonal varieties.

excellent soap! I've tried only the marshlands and I'm completely satisfied by all points of views! The blade slide good and the soap is rich and protective. It smells like its name : wet ground, a little bit of smoke ove it or heat no middle ways....I adore it
