The product has a nice spiced smell and I'm really enjoying it. It has a slight burn from the alcohol base that is just enough to be invigorating, but not drying and irritating like some other products.
Hi Allan, I have just received owing to a delay at UK customs & used for the first time. First impressions - feels & smells great. I wanted to let you have feed back on the delivery process which may be beyond your control. I have been charged an additional $20.74 US equivalent by UK customs & wondered if you had similar experience? is there a UK distributor which could avoid this, as it is obviously a
dis-incentive for futre orders. Interested in your feedback. Power to family owned small business. Regards David
Scent reminds me of the now defunct Dominica Bay Rum brand and lasts longer too. Fresh, clean, understated and manly. Fast delivery. Will purchase again in the future.
Totally satisfied. A small amount on my shaving brush produced a rich creamy lather. A pleasant but not overpowering fragrance that lasted the entire shave. Highly recommended this product.
The shaving soap worked very well and created a good lather. Definitely will purchase again!
Excellent product. This is a great company to do business with. They stand behind their products, because their products are high quality. My shaving supplies vendor from now on!
This stuff is hands down great!! Reminds me of old time barbershop after shave. These guys nailed it on the sent. Give it a shot you won’t be disappointed
When I opened the jar, it looked like someone had scooped out a glob of it. To the credit of Barberry Coast, they offered me a replacement. Then they reneged on that and gave me a small credit with no info on how to claim the credit. So the burden is on me. A replacement would have been more than fair, a small credit is less than fair and I am very unlikely to go through the trouble to claim it, which is likely why they offered it. These are supposedly premium products at definitely premium prices. When they quibble at the edges, I will go back to other premium products where they simply sell me what I am buying. I have yet to try this product, but will say it smells pretty good.
I bought this balm because I am a cigar guy. After using it, I do not get the connection. That aside, this is a great product, soothing with a very nice aroma. Whether you enjoy cigars or not, try this outstanding product!
Sitting at my desk at work. I can still smell Barberry Coast's Bay Rum Aftershave on me. It's fantastic. Shaved with the shave cream this morning and applied the aftershave. Not only do all the products feel great on my skin but, dare I say, smells "old school gentleman" in a great way. I'll be looking forward to ordering the EDP. Highly recommended!
The Bay Rum Aftershave No 28 I bought is the best aftershave I bought! It keeps my skin soft and moist all day long. I noticed my skin actually breaths better and is more comfortable in the hot, humid South Florida summers. Skin feels fresh all day. Before I was using an aftershave balm for sensitive skin. Problem with the balm is it didn't allow my skin to breath and my skin didn't feel as soft and smooth all day. From now on, this will be my regular aftershave for the way it keeps my skin feel rejuvenated. Truly an amazing product!
Shaving with a safety razor using an after shave balm is a must have. And along that lines Barberry Coast Bay Rum aftershave balm is also a must have. A spicy nice sent that complements well.
Always loved the aftershave lotion, and had hoped for an "Cologne" to follow it with. Put the two together, and "yes", you have a Great Lasting Scent!
One of the best cologne's I have ever smelled. Lasts a good while. Don't over do as always. smelling good looking good
Quality products and outstanding communication/customer service assistance with a special request.... thank you to associate Olivia. Five star products and company!
With my passion for my beard I use just a light swipe of the brush on my neckline and cheeks. When it comes to the big shave of my big bald head this is it!!! The ease of whipping up a great lather in my shave mug and top badger shave brush and the glide is on. Love the scent, topped off with matching Shave Balm and beard oil.
Rich, subtle, and masculine. You can imagine Hemingway shaving with this before he took his mistress to a bullfight.
Back in the day, my granfathers and pop use to shave with safety razors. They would use various after shave lotions.
Now I'm an old guy (old school and cool they say) and I am not paying the price for disposable poor quality shaves. I got a safety razor and wanted a quality after shave balm.
Strong sent so be careful how much you slap on. Lasts a good while.
2oz is a large enough bottle to "hey why not try it".
I think you will be presently pleased.
I'm a fan!
I had purchased one before. I liked it so much got another one for my travel bag.
I am in the military and have to shave every day. I have a thick beard and am a 5:00pm shadow kind of guy. Using barberry coast products is the best shave I have ever had in my life. I began looking into barberry coast while deployed to Afghanistan and shaving with "hard water," it was killing my face. Initially I was very hesitate to purchase any of the products because I thought this is "just shaving cream", I'll stick with the cheap stuff. Don't let the prices scare you away, this is high quality! Barberry Coast products are simply incredible and your face will thank you and so will your wife!
I first purchased the Bay Rum Shave Cream, Bay Rum after shave balm, Bay Rum face scrub, and Bay Rum Pre-shave oil. The face scrub leaves my face feeling clean and ready for an incredible shave. The shave cream lathers up foamy and feels smooth going on. I have zero irritation, less cuts, my face is left silky smooth. In fact my face is still smooth at 8:00pm at night. But the best is the Bay Rum after shave balm. The after shave balm is simply amazing, the best thing that has ever touched my face besides my wife and kids' kisses. I never really used after shave before. The bay rum after shave balm is like smooth butter going on your face and leaves my face feeling healthy. The smell of the bay rum leaves you smelling “manly” and fresh, but not an overbearing smell. This product lasted me about 5 months but I probably could have stretched it out to six months.
I recently purchased 2x Havana Shave Creams and 2x Havana After Shave Balms. I can't wait to get home from Afghanistan and try them.
Additionally, Allen Crawley's down home 'mom-n pops' customer service is refreshing and appreciated. He treats you like he values you and your business and as if you are an old friend. Upon my second purchase, I was having trouble placing my order due to some military restrictions in Afghanistan. I sent Mr. Crawley a message stating what I wanted and asked him to call my wife ...
