Great shave cream with a wonderful scent of crushed cocoa beans, tobacco and vanilla. As with all Barberry Coast shave creams make a thick lather and gives a smooth, clean shave. Afterwards I always use Havana after shave splash, balm and cologne so my face feels great and the scent lingers for hours.
I'm not new to shaving, but new to aftershaves. I'm a shave balm man...40+ years. After numerous rave reviews, I gave NO. 28 a shot. The scent is not over powering. I expected more "Burn", thankfully I did not get it!! I expected more of a drying after effect.....did not get it. My after use face feel was refreshing and also a hydrated feel. The scent was soft and did not interfere with my cologne. Works for me. Add it to your list of shave products!!
My favorite bay rum scent. Makes a great lather and gives a wonderful smooth, clean shave. Barberry Coast has excellent products and customer service.
Being a fan of the Bay Rum shave soap, I had to take advantage of the Valentine’s Day sale and purchase the Kingston shave cream. Good choice! The cream makes a nice lather and has a relaxing floral and fruit scent. This is sure to go well with spring time and last into the summer days.
Excellent product, but the seal was not right and it leaked during shipment.
If you're an aficionado of Bay Rum, this is the pinnacle of Bay Rums. I read the online reviews of Barberry Coast Bay Rum, and people don't exaggerate. This cologne is the real thing. I'm from Canada, and we have to add about 35% on top of the price... plus duty. This is worth it! This cologne is long lasting, but not intrusive at all. It's the right mixture of "Old Barbershop", with the right amount of "modern" to it. It will never go out of style.
Thank you Allen and Sarah, for the great products, and service!
The order was well wrapped and arrived in a few days. I also have the Havana aftershave splash and balm. Wonderful warm sent and the Eau de Parfum allows the scent to linger all day. One of my favorites. This is a great company with superior products and service.
Great product !!!
Great product, with a wonderful scent, and excellent customer service are a winning combo !
I switched from old-fashioned foam to Barberry cream about a year and a half ago and I will never go back. I use the small sample containers for travel and absolutely love it! I just reordered and my shipment came super fast. Couldn’t be happier.
Phenomenal shave cream if you want a silk like shave. You must try this. HENRY
This is not really a traditional Bay Rum scent but I have received only positive comments about the scent. I use it as an after shave so the spray top is inadequate. I have removed it an use my finger on the top to drip out the amount I need. Perhaps you could design/add a shaker top as an alternate to the spray top.
Ever since my go to bay rum started to cause a skin rash (too much clove, something in the water??), after several other bay rums, i decided to give Barberry Coast Bay Rum AS & cologne a try. Living in northern climes, i like bay rum in the winter for its' spicey scent. Barberry Coast has proven to be the best not only for its' incredible scent but also for its' skin toning properties in cold weather. I have found my new bay rum. Even though it is a bit pricey, I find the quality to be worth the extra $$$ and both AS and cologne have staying power thru the day.
Service from Sarah was excellent and quite speedy. Highly recommend buying direct.
Oh, and why bay rum in winter? Because i want to be transported to the tropics and in the summer, i am a menthol junkie. LOL!
Great product.. will order again..
Himalayan Ascent Aftershave Splash
I switched to Barberry Coast Bay Rum after shave and shave soap and am pleased with both products. They both smell really great and the shave soap is the best I’ve used so far. Thanks for making quality shave products.
Boss sent me home because I smelled tooooo cool and tooo nice
I recently placed my second order with B.C.S.Co. I had ordered the Havana set a few months ago and thought it would be a good idea to stock up during their recent sale. I was disappointed when the order arrived because they had sent the shave cream rather than the shave soap that I'd ordered. I sent an email to them although I didn't receive a response but lo and behold yesterday a package arrived with a shave soap and a handwritten apology. Now that's top notch customer service. They didn't even ask me to return the shave cream that they had mistakenly sent. They have earned a customer for life. Of course, it doesn't hurt that their products are amazing with scents that I can't find any where else.
Thanks Allen and Sarah! You and your company continue to impress! Best of luck for continued success. Happy Holidays!
The Kingstone cologne has a very pleasant smooth scent! I like that it isn’t overwhelmingly! Just a great overall fragrance! I bought the Kingston aftershave balm and loved it! So I had to try the Kingston cologne! My girlfriend always compliments on how great it is! I’m a big fan of the Kingston line as with all Barberry’s other lines! And the customer service is the best!
I use it for a preshave oil and it works great helping my shave be clean and smooth. plus I love the bay rum scent.
I have been using the bay rum shave soap, after shave splash , after shave balm and cologne. Classic bay rum scent using all natural ingredients. Get a wonderful smooth shave and compliments on the scent. Great customer service and fast delivery.
My husband loves the Havana aftershave. Says it’s the best he has ever used. I love the smell. Top notch product.
Barberry Coast Bay Rum Cologne is the longest lasting Bay Rum Cologne I’ve been able to find. It’s an excellent Cologne.
This was my 2nd order of Kingston Cologne. I have it in rotation with the other Barberry Coast scents. I have been using their products since they first came out and I am a great fan of their products and costumer service. This cologne has a warm scent that lingers for hours without being overwhelming or announce your presence in a room.
I have looked at Bay Rum after shaves for a while, online mind you, and other than a cheaper brand had not smelled them. This one while having the classic notes of Bay Rum also brought an unexpected complexity. It has subtle notes of tropic scents going on, a decent smell all around.
That said it shines upon application! It feels refreshing instantly with no burn, and dries with a wonderful soothing feel on your face. Will buy again.
Love the Barberry Coast Bay Rum products. And the service is the best!
First time trying the Bay Rum shave soap from Barberry Coast and I am quite pleased. This is one of the better shave soaps that I’ve used. Looking forward to trying the Kingston next.
Bay Rum Aftershave No. 28
Great to have the sample pack to offer. BC shipped very quickly along with a free sample of another item. I was interested in their offerings based on the rave reviews from the DE wetshave community. Their bay rum is top-shelf & I also like the Ascent AS. The Havana is also a well touted scent. All of the products have an excellent skin feel with some longevity. The quantity in each sample will give you plenty of opportunity to make their impression. I will definitely purchase from Barberry Coast again. Thank you for the variety.
This is the best Bay Rum Balm I have used. Love the feel and smell in the morning. I have reordered and will again and again.
Used this shave soap and loved it. What a great shave with my Rockwell 6S. The smell is so refreshing in the morning. I paired it with Barberry Coast Bay Rum balm and all I can say is WOW.
I ordered the AS sample pack for a test drive of BC’s highly touted line. Ordering and customer service was top-notch so thank you gents. The sample sizes will grant you numerous outings about while choosing your favorite. BC has definitely cracked the code on what bay rum smells like in our memory. Try to describe the bay rum of our fathers & grandfathers without a vial of it in front of someone & we’d never quite get the profile right. This bay rum offering strums all the right strings while being just a tad more sophisticated. It is light & has a great skin feel. I also liked the Ascent in this sample but have not worn it enough to supply an honest review. The Havana blend profile described is spot on but does not agree with my skin for some reason. The Kingston blend, also well described, does not excite me (perhaps just a tad too heavy a scent, but no doubt still a quality recipe brought to you by the mad lab men at BC.) The unscented Kohana balm had a pleasant dry down with no stickiness. It will be a fine travel addition for the gym back or suitcase that doesn’t compete with your AS/EDT.
This is a great shaving cream for many reasons. Number one being it’s my favorite scent of all time: bay rum. Numero dos: it’s smooth as silk... Really helps a safety razor glide with no irritation. Thirdly it doesn’t require a brush so I can use it in the shower no problem.
Really happy with this stuff. Definitely found my new favorite.
Went well thanks for resending order cause of not receiving first order
My Bay Rum aftershave has arrived in Ireland 😊
Worth the wait.. The scent is amazing and unique..
I will definitely buy other products from Barberry Coast again 👌 keep up the amazing work ..
Firstly I'd like to say hats off to Barberry Coast's customer service, it is without a doubt the best I've seen.
The products themselves are of the highest quality and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a bay rum scent!
I'm really looking forward to trying more once I've run out of my current lot (may be some time).
I’ve still not received it..
The beard oil smells amazing, definitely softens the beard. I enjoy using it very much and will be ordering more in the future
I have been using their shave soap for a couple years now and they all smell great, are easy to use, and help make a better shave. Ascent is a great soap in their inventory and I will be buying more.
Bay Rum Aftershave Balm Lotion
Great product. Love the fragrance. Hope after shave is coming in Lavender Royale.
I m glad i got the sample before ordering a 120.00 kit that i would not have liked. I was going to order the bay rum kit (never having tried bay rum) but decided to get the sample first. When i recieved the kit i smelled all of the fragrances and bay rum was the only one i did not care for. The other 3 i really loved. Now i m going to have to eventually get them all. So i went from spending 120.00 to who knows how much because i will probably get a cologne or 2 also.
Love how it works with the shave soap for a really close, comfortable shave.
Feels good after a shave know burning and know irritation.
Enter a seductive, exclusive world of members only night clubs with this intoxicating blend of opulent tobacco leaf, and crushed cocoa beans that is reminiscent of old Havana charm and glamour.
Creamy island vanilla laced with natural oils of patchouli and Peruvian clove leaf add a touch of spice and mystery to this gentleman fragrance that won't leave that special someone unaffected.

Excellent for sensitive skin - absolutely nothing you don't need, nothing that could cause harm or irritation to your skin. Just pure perfection in a post shave moisturizer and shave cream.
Kingston is inspired by the Heart of Jamaica and bears the name of its capital city. This amazing fragrance awakens your senses with a modern blend that opens with an energetic yet sensual fusion of bergamot, pear, ruby grapefruit, crisp apple and plum blossom. Spicy hints of geranium and peppercorn infuse vigor and masculinity, while the seductive power of Jamaican rum, blond woods, sheer musk, vanilla, and amber add warmth and softness in the base for an irresistible, contemporary expression of masculinity.View Kingston Collection
Bay rum is one of the oldest recorded aftershave scents. It brings back nostalgia of old school barbershops and grandpa’s shave routine. Back when quality and craftsmanship meant something.
Our version of bay rum is a modern twist on that old time favorite. Handcrafted with the finest and purest ingredients, we carefully and painstakingly blend our bay rum to insure a total harmony of the all-natural oils, extracts and absolutes.
A shave scent full of character that blends with the warm heart of exotic woods - Himalayan Blue Pine and Indian Cedar, cashmere musk and Indian Amber with a refreshing splash of mandarin and a touch of Sandalwood.
A reverent nod to the old time tradition of mug and brush shaving, these high powered shave products will leave you in complete awe. Enjoy the adventurous scent of the Himalayas.
