I don't have a lot of wet shaving experience nor do I have too much experience with too many other brands of shaving creams and soaps. That being said, I turned to Barberry Coast because their offerings seemed unique, they offered bay rum, and their products had good reviews online. I can enthusiastically say that I was not disappointed. Great scent, great feel, great service; all of it surpassed my expectations and lived up to the hype, so much so that I decided to give their Lavender Royale soap a shot as well. Hasn't gotten here yet, but if were a gambling man, I'd bet it's going to live up to the hype as well.
I used it alone and pre shave soap not sure which worked best as both results were great.
I love Havana. It’s a good clean long lasting scent that’s great in the summer, especially the evenings. The smell is distinct and it’s one of my favorites. Shipping was lighting quickl as usual, even with a major holiday in the middle of the week.
Just recently purchased the Kingston after shave balm plus the Havana shave soap, and both are excellent products...
Have been using Bay Rum for many months and thought I’d try a new scent. Well to my surprise the Havana scent blends in nicely with
the Bay Rum and I now have my own custom scent. Will be ordering the Havana cologne shortly.
