Rust Belt reserve Premium - FOREST CITY FERN SHAVING SOAP

Introducing Forest City Fern, the first shaving products in our Rust Belt Reserve premium shaving line. Rust Belt Reserve products feature luxurious ingredients blended with complex, expertly crafted, premium fragrances.

Chupacabra base! Ingredient highlights: goat milk, meadowfoam seed oil, buckthorn extract, mallow extract. All provide even more cushion, more slickness, and an even better post-shave.

THE FOREST CITY FERN STORY No one's quite sure how Cleveland acquired the "Forest City" nickname, but it's generally thought to have come from a history of efforts and encouragement by city officials to plant shade and fruit trees. Having spent a great deal of time in our area's outdoor spaces, we're certainly grateful for our forefathers' efforts. Hiking through the trails of our local park hunting for fossils in creek beds with our kids, we were inspired to recreate the scent experience in our Forest City Fern shaving soap and splash.

Forest City Fern is our take on a traditional Fougere. Over a dozen fragrance ingredients blend seamlessly, featuring a well-rounded lavender top end that gives way to an earthy, woody base.

Ingredients: Tallow, kokum butter, avocado oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, stearic acid, coconut, glycerin, lanolin, coconut oil, goat milk, mallow extract, buckthorn extract, meadowfoam seed oil, Vitamin E, essential oils, fragrance oils, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide (made by hot process).

This soap reminds me of Declaration Grooming


Customer review

Probably one of the best soap bases around. It lathers really well and performs great. Couldn't complain here at all. But the biggest surprise for me was the scent. It's really strong fougere fragrance which I just can't stop to sniff. It might be not the type of scent most will like, but if you do, you will really fall in love with it.


Customer review

Performance wise, I've already reviewed the Rust Belt Reserve base by Shannon; it's still one of the best soap bases available, especially in the post shave "department". The scent - at least according to my nose - is a dirtier, earthier, sexier Brut. The drydown is just fantastic. I wish I had got the aftershave too, but I have a bottle of Brut around, so that will do for now.


Customer review
