Unexpectedly one of the best Shaving Soaps Available

I wanted to share this as I unexpectedly discovered this by accident and will NEVER use anything else !

My wife has used "Shisiedo" makeup for a long time. We currently live in any area where the major department stores do not have a "Shisiedo counter" and she asks me to to pick up her makeup during my business travels.

They typically give you samples when you by makeup and one time, because I am man, they gave put in some samples from the men’s line. There was a tube labeled "Cleansing Foam". I decided to try it for shaving and was in for a BIG SURPRISE. Applied with my shaving brush, I got the smoothest, creamiest foam from a little amount of product. It also smells great ! On top of this, my shave was one of the closets as the product is a great lubricant.

After using the sample, I bought the full size and discovered it actually IS intended to be shaving soap as well as a cleansing foam according to the documentation included.

You only need use an amount that is about the equivalent of a No 2 pencil eraser to get a full face of great foam.

I am SO PLEASED with this soap, I have been using it for about 3 years now. I will not use anything else.. !

I cant imagine using the same thing for 3 years. I have been using one soap for 3-4 months and am getting tired of it but if it works for you then thats good
I happen to have this product still sealed...
Never thought of using it with a brush nor as a shaving cream but will try it now that you mention this.
It surprised me when I bought the product, opened it to find they intend it to be a shaving soap per the documentation with it, but do not reference this on the packaging at all...

I think the are "selling themselves short" on this one...

It could also be that they do have a "shaving soap", but I used the sample of that and it was not so good....
I have used other products in between "off and on" such as when I run out or forget to take some "home" with me (as I am on assignement for work), but nothing seems to be "as good" and as "smooth".. I bought some "Williams" soap at home this past Christmas as I was out of soap completely. I have used Williams in the past, but this time it "smelled" really bad to me and is definitely not as foamy a product.. This is why I continually stay with this stuff...
Where can it be bought? How much do you pay for it and at what quantity, e.g. 150 ml for fifteen EURO?
+1. Except where can it be bought in the U.S.?? I'll take a sample and try it before going all out with a full sized tube.

It can be purchased in any major department store that has beauty counters. You can ask them for a sample. This is how I discovered it.,
Sounds like you're selling the stuff. That good you wouldn't use anything else?

No... I am not selling it and have no interests...:001_smile I just wanted to share what I considered a unique find and a great shave.. I have/do use other products when I don't take it with me on my travels, but it is "that good" is the nature of my statement about "using anything else".. :biggrin1:

For most of the posts that asked similar questions:

It can be purchased (worldwide) at an major department store that has beauty counters, specifically a Shiseido counter. You can also buy it on-line from a department store like Macy's, Nordstroms, etc, or other "beauty" sites.

It comes in a 125ml size and runs around 20 USD or so,, It lasts a long time however...

IF you have a store that carries it, like some of the folks stated, you can ask them for a sample and they will give you a small tube,,, This can tell you if I am "wrong or right :001_smile
I swear by the Shiseido Brushless Cream.
It gives me the smoothest shaves of anything I've tried.

The only problem is, no brush = no fun.
great products though.
Sounds intriguing, I'd like to try it.

But is it really a good idea to send LOTH to the makeup counter at Macy's and encourage her to buy stuff?:w00t:

I suppose the gamble must be taken.

I m using this Cleansing foam for years now , tried it for shaving but never with my brush .....I ll give a try tomorrow...it is a pity I'm already shaved now:001_smile

Especially once they get their first whiff of 'Mall Air' It energizes them somehow.

Safer to just order some on-line at someplace like Amazon. I found it there for a little over twenty bucks. Maybe next time I order something I'll get a tube...
