This shaving soap smells nice.

But, sadly, the scent serves only to make you wish that this product performed as well as it smells.

It's a maddening chore to try and get it to lather. The lather that you do get after a ton of effort simply isn't worth the trouble. Thin, weak, quick to dry on the face and providing little in the way of cushion, slip or glide, it's a shadow of what lather produced with a brush should be.

The puck is hard and waxy. It is unlike any other shaving soap I've tried, and not in a good way. In fact, the performance of this soap was so bad, I thought I must have gotten a substandard puck. Sadly, a little searching on wet shaving forums showed that I wasn't alone in my dismay with this shaving soap. In fact, it's hard to categorize this as soap. Regular mass market detergent soaps would work better for shaving than this, and they don't work well at all.

I've had great results with many other shaving soaps, glycerin and tallow based. I can get a decent lather out of Williams mug soap, a product with a hard-to-lather reputation. I don't insist on top dollar English soaps. I wanted to like this product, but the only time I got any satisfaction out of using it was from the solid thump it made when I tossed it in the trash.

I'm not a Burt's Bees hater, as I think the bay rum aftershave balm is a winner, and I've enjoyed some of the other products in the line.

This soap is one of the few disappointments I've come across in a year of wet shaving. Too bad, as it does smell nice.

Not only is this soap painfully over priced but it is the worst shave soap I have come across. The smell is actually quite nice but it requires a great deal of effort to make a proper lather, and once made vanishes on your face within a minute or two. There are so many better cheaper shave soaps out there. Save your self the dissapointment and get something else.

I have been using a brush and shaving soap for at least 30 years and have been using Burt's Bees soap for at 6 or 7 years and I have never found anything to match it. Each cake lasts me about a year. I have seen reviews about people having trouble with this soap lathering poorly, but I have never had a problem. I use a good quality natural brush and it lathers nicely. Bear in mind that if you want lather like you get from a can (which is not necessary), use a can.

I have always had problems with skin irritation, razor burn, bumps and the like. These problems disappeared with this soap.

I want to commend a company that has a product that actually does what it states! My husband has been looking for a shaving product for about 20 years that would not cause redness and bumps when shaving. After trying multitudes of products this is one that leaves him without the redness or bumps. It also causes NO pain while shaving. His skin is smooth and supple after using Burt's Bees. I am so glad that we found something that works on his sensitive skin. He has tried every product on the market, most of them much more expensive than this item and until he used this, nothing worked. This is such a reasonably priced product and it actually WORKS!!! The customer service from this company is the BEST. Lots of communication and great customer service. I will continue to order this product and to sing the praises of this company. This day and age companies don't have any pride in their products nor do they realize the customer makes the company profitable. This is a refreshing blast from the past and I give them as many kudos as possible. You will NOT be disappointed when you purchase this item. Fresh scent also adds to the WOW factor! Thanks Burt's Bees. I will order as soon as I finish this review!! You should order too, don't wait because you will not be disappointed!!!

My husband loves this product, although I accidentally way overpaid for this which upsets me, the product is great and lasts a long time. He has used it many times before and it smells good, too! Next time just get it directly from Burts bees retailer website where you can easily get it for cost! You don't have to get it from amazon's private dealers, which can way overcharge for things.

I have tried and been dissapointed in many of the MUCH more expensive top dollar soaps and they do not compair to the smoothness achieved with burts. I have not found a better shave soap than burts regardless of manufacturer claims. Four stars all the way. Side note I have sensative skin.
