Product Description

Product Description

Arko Barber's Shaving Cream stick is the king of the inexpensive soaps. To use this stuff properly, thoroughly wet your face and rub the stick with a bit of pressure on the stubble until you can see a layer forming (you shouldn't use the stick to build lather). Then, take a wet brush and build the lather on your face. There's no need for a mug. Just keep in mind that this stuff requires a bit of water to get going properly. It has the most slippery, effective lather is one that is wet almost to the point of being runny.

I bought this for £2.99 delivered back in March. It now seems to be an add on item. I bought it along with all the other kit after getting into DE shaving as I was sick of paying absurd prices for a bit of metal and plastic with Gilette Fusion blades.

Best move I have ever made with shaving and I do not suffer from ANY razor burn or spots round my neck that always happend with disposable cartridge shaving.

I am not a shaving fetishist and do not get a semi about different razor handles, creams, pre shave treatments, pure bristle brushes etc. I got into this way of shaving as I don't like wasting money so I bought all the cheapest bits I could that came in at under £20.

I am very happy with the cheapest items I have bought and feel no need to upgrade.

This shaving stick is great. Bought in March it has hardly gone down & I am sure it will last me to the end of the year at least.

*** Tips - For some reason I joined Badger & Blade - one of the DE shaving fetishist forums the other week and came across this, Arko shaving stick. I learnt that I was doing it all wrong so am sharing my tips.

I WAS wetting the shaving stick & brush and rubbing brush on the stick & creating a lather. This is WRONG.

What you have to do is ensure you have at least some growth - if you run your hand up your face and can feel it that's enough. Wet your face and the shaving stick. Then rub the stick over your face - against the grain.

You probably won't see a lot and will think it isn't enough. It is!

Then get your wetted brush and start working it over your soaped face in circlular strokes and you will be amazed at the thick lather it creates. Once you are covered "lay it off" in smooth strokes and then you are all set for the best shave of your life!

Hope this helps. Cheers

Smells like a traditional barber hot shave - that's because most barbers that offer hot shaves use arko! It does a good job however it does dry out very soon and I found I have to apply more on.....have heard good reviews about tabac soap? Will be trying soon.....however arko is purchased cheaper like £2 then I would recommend this purely for being cost effective and does the job.

I was born in London to Turkey parents and have always had my hair cut and shaves by Turkish barbers in the UK and in Turkey, they all use arko.

I love the product for it's unique smell which brings back memories, authentic Turkish and vintage looking packaging and most of all the quality of this product.

It lathers up like no other and moisturises better than all other shaving creams or foams I have ever tried.

It's a must buy!

The traditional shaving soap that I always enjoyed. Runs smooth on the skin and makes it soft, ready to shave. It has a great lifespan. I shave around once in two days, and this product is going on ever!

The arko shave stick gives a great lather its gives a great smell off it but others may not like it, its easy to lather and would be great for traveling so you dont need to carry a bowl as you just have to apply it straight to your face, i would recommend this product to anyone or to and beginner who is getting into wet shaving!

This stick is very good. You'll need something to hold the stick in - as it comes as a soap stick in a wrapping and nothing else. I also tried the method of rubbing the stick on my stubble first to make a thin layer of soap, then using my brush to create a thick creamy lather - it worked very well.

works really well for face lathering. the smell is quite strong and citrousy, but doesn't last after the shave, so it doesn't matter much. the performance to price ratio is unbeatable, it does a very good job at any price. it is easy to use even with synth brushes and does not require a bowl, it makes an excellent choice for travel soap. i find mwf lather to be a bit slicker, so no 5 stars, but mwf costs 6 times as much
