Product Description

Product Description

Experience a perfect shave with the Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood Shave Soap Refill, a classic way to groom. For the man who enjoys a traditional wet shave, there is no better ritual than lathering up one of our traditional shaving brush with a fine shaving soap.

The Nomad Shave Soap is enriched with antioxidant vitamin E to protect the skin from external aggressors, and produces a rich and compensating lather that helps to prevent razor drag irritation, moreover this product has been tested and approved by dermatologists. It contains Bisabolol which calms and soothes the skin, whilst its stylish wooden container makes it a fantastic gift for the man in your life, or a self-indulgent treat for yourself.

Enjoy the ancient, exotic and slightly mysterious scent of sandalwood, which has been a base for incense and perfume for thousands of years. The precious aromatic is a long lasting fragrance which appeals to both men and women. Its scent is reminiscent of fresh green sap notes, deep smoky woods, leathery labdanum and musky resins, which have all been carefully blended together to create a contemporary twist on an all-time classic.

Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family-run business which, specialized in fine soaps from around the world, to an international company, well known and respected for its original fragrances, luxurious toiletries, gourmet foods and gifts for those who enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle

This isn't a particularly cheap product. But it's so very worth the money.

First off it smells amazing. I have several Crabtree & Evelyn sandalwood scented things and I feel so damned manly it hurts. Secondly, it'll last a long time. A very long time, I think, given how my uses so far appear to have made little to no difference to the surface of the soap. Third, you get a wooden bowl! Now I have no idea what the quality of the bowl is like, but it feels so upper class to be marauding around my flat with a wooden bowl of shaving soap.

A good product, worth the money and highly recommended.

I've used a few shaving soaps over the last 7 months since I've converted to proper shaving but this is my favourite. It lathers well with minimum effort and I've barely got rid of the logo that's etched in to the top of the block. The wooden bowl is a nice tactile touch in this modern world of plastic. My only complain is the 'sandalwood' element of its fragrance is fairly minimal compared to some sandalwood shaving creams but they only last around five minutes. I fully expect to still be using this in 2014.

Disappointing is the best word I can think of to describe this soap. It smells nice and the wooden case is a nice touch but, I find the lather thin and not at all the type to make a chap feel no end of a fine fellow!

I may be spoilt by the Italian shaving soap I had before this but I don't think so, the lather is just `thin' and that's it.

UPDATE : November 2013, I've improved the original score from 3 to 4 that I gave this soap as I have found that if one puts just a little water on the brush and holds the soap upside down (over a sink!) and rubs quite hard then the lather does thicken up quite nicely as this gives the thin stuff the chance to fall in to said sink.

I hate those cans of foam which cover your fingers with gunk. Have tried Nivea tubes but this traditional shave soap keeps your hands clean, good foam [with a decent brush] and great smell. On a negative side, the soap level has not moved in two months, so may last several years before I can try the refill I bought at the same time. No need to buy a refill until you have to. Highly recommended

This was the first soap I bought when making the change from not shaving to shaving. I jumped in with this soap because many years before we bought the same soap for my father.

Many men have used this product and have had good experiences with it. I, on the other hand have slightly sensitive skin under the neck and the tendency to develop irritation. This soap just disn't offer the same protection as shaving creams do.

The scent is very subtle and the soap itself lasts forever!!

Bought a badger brush so needed some shaving soap to complete the package & this seemed like a great choice.

Only negative I suppose is that the sandalwood scent is not particularly strong in fact i'ts almost non existant.

Up to now I have always used Gillette soap in a plastic bowl, mainly because it was easy to pick up from the super market and it was cheap!
Recently I decided to treat myself to a decent badger brush (made by KENT) and invest in a more 'upmarket' soap, which is why I chose 'CRABTREE'
I am very pleasantly surprised how much better a lather I obtain, just by slightly wetting the brush and applying, then soaking the brush again and build up a nice thick lather which gives a far better cut. Although the Crabtree soap cost more than my previous brand you do not seen to require so much, yet still get a far better lather, as a consequence I feel that the Crabtree soap will last far longer. Plus the soap came with a very nice wooden bowl. Overall highly recommended.

The quality fo the foam is incredible - it covers teh face so easily and completely, and allows a really smooth shave with no irritation.

Well worth the money - already ordered the next one!
