Whiskers Shaving Soap
Dry, soft sandalwood, soothing vanilla & a trace of fresh air clinging to warm fur
Velvety soft ears. Warm paws in your lap. A small, pink nose. Or a big wet one. Whiskers is dedicated to that wonderful weight of a four-legged friend curled up on the couch beside you. Bury your hands in their fur, scritch under their chins, tell them everything that's roiling around in your mind & they will sigh & purr in sympathy, contentment & adoration. Very quiet, soft & warm, Whiskers is a deeply comforting unisex scent in honor of our furry companions.
This listing is for a generous 4-ounce round of my luxurious glycerin soap, fortified with ultrafine bentonite clay for a smooth, comfortable shave. I use a hefty, round mold that sits handsomely in a shaving bowl, or you can lather up with your hands. The end result? Huge, stable lather, great slip & delicious scents to get you soft, smooth & ready for action. I hand cast in small batches with no SLS, propylene glycol, parabens, animal products or other funny stuff! Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too. My bars produce gorgeous, abundant lather & have unique scents that cling gently to your skin. You'll be left feeling clean & smelling fantastic. I hand-wrap each bar in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerin (kosher, of vegetable origin), Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Sorbitol (moisturizer), Sorbitan oleate (emulsifer), Oat Protein (conditioner), Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide, Fragrance Oil, Mica
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. New to a good old fashioned wet shave? The guys at The Art of Manliness won't steer you wrong: http://artofmanliness.com/2008/01/04/how-to-shave-like-your-grandpa/
*Note that this is the revised scent blend; due to component issues, Whiskers & other PBSW scents will be reformulated in 2018 as supplies run out. Read more about it here: http://paintboxsoapworks.com/blog/2018-reformulations-discontinuations/

I love this shaving soap bar! It lathers up extremely well and is fantastic for shaving legs. My skin feels soft and moisturized. The scent is a great scent too. I love the combo of sandalwood and vanilla but it's a soft airy touch of scent and quite beautiful.

I love these shaving soaps. They're really slippery and moisturizing, so my legs don't get irritated at all when I shave with these bars, and I love the Whiskers fragrance. It's a warm, non-powdery sandalwood and toasty, sweet, creamy vanilla. I definitely smell the vanilla in it.

This soap has been great for shaving. It lathers up quickly and lasts such a long time. I didn't sample this particular scent before I bought it, so I thought it'd have a stronger vanilla scent, hence the missing star. Regardless of my scent hang-ups, it's fantastic quality soap!
