Tuesday Spotlight: Shave Bars
Our Tuesday Spotlight shines upon our often overlooked shave bars. If you have met my bib overall wearing buddy in person, you will understand why I prioritized creating a natural shave bar. The Bibbed Wonder is diligent about his personal hygiene. I know it sounds contradictory after all the stories I entertain you with about him and his questionable behaviors. However, he does indeed shave that handsome bald head of his daily. Although when one thinks of shaving, often it is men who come to mind first. However, as a woman, it is a daily process we do not speak of openly or often. Most women in my circle shave more frequently and cover more square inches than most men. For this reason, I tried to create a product that spanned both genders.
At the beginning of my soap journey, I created two shave soaps. One was lavender, and one was rose scented. I did not have a large audience, and the audience I had primarily consisted of women. The shave bars got a little bit of attention, and I received positive feedback on them, but they weren't focused. At that time, The Bibbed Wonder smelled like a field of French lavender when he exited the bathroom each morning. I enjoyed the scent, but he is not fond of the smell of lavender. I appeased him by creating an unscented shave bar. Fast forward a few years, and I decided the shave bar scents needed to be revamped. For whatever reason, mainly The Bibbed Wonders input, I did away with the scents of rose and lavender. Instead, I created a more gender-neutral shave bar with milk and honey and maintained the unscented bar because it had an audience. No one seemed to miss the floral-scented shave bars, so I think I made the correct decision.
Currently, we offer three options for our shave bars. We have the widely popular Milk and Honey, the Unscented for those with sensitive skin, and we added The Manly Man per The Bibbed Wonders request. Milk and Honey is a slightly sweet, soft scent with a hint of almond. The Manly Man is a beautiful combination of sandalwood, musk, and amber. All three bars have a dense, moisturizing lather created by the blend of natural oils, almond, castor, jojoba, and shea butter. All-natural kaolin clay adds a nice slip to the soap, and coconut oil makes it cleansing.
All three shave bars are on special for half off on the website. Whether you are a fan or are looking to try something new, now is a great time to stock up or try a new product. As always, stay safe, be smart, enjoy the savings, and keep washing your hands.
