    Default CBL Tonsorial

    I've been using CBL Tonsorial 'Roasted Oatmeal Stout' for a week now. This simple soap easily makes a great lather and the tonsorial base is purported to be a clone of 'Vintage Williams'. I've never tried vintage Williams so I can't make a judgement as to that, but others have said that it compares favorably.

    The scent is simply scrumptious, like fresh baked oatmeal cookies. The second ingredient listed is Guenness Extra Stout.

    I just looked for your address. I guess you need to send it again in a PM.

    Just got a more than generous sample of the soap in the mail from my friend Victor.

    I'll tell ya....when I opened the envelope I wanted to slather it all over my face and take a bite out of it.
    The scent is absolutely killer!!

    Can't wait till tomorrow's shave.

    Thank you Victor!!

    CBL is a GREAT soap and chris makes wonderful products remember to check out his NEW releases...

    from a post chris made for the release of them yesterday they are as follows....

    Introducing the newest CBL Tonsorial soaps ...the Banned Edition

    ROCK THE CASBAH
    V FOR VETIVER
    INSURGENT
    CLUB CBL Riot Stick (Shave Stick -approximately 60-70grams)
    The BANNED Edition soaps are intended to be more vibrantly scented, visually appealing (photogenic) and worth talking about everywhere that hasn’t banned the mention of CBL Soaps. …so CBL’s absence from a particular forum will be noticed.
    There are 4 BANNED Edition soaps. Each soap features a bold label design and name, perfect for those Shave Of The Day photos on your favorite forum(s) and instagram. BANNED Edition soaps also feature bolder scents you’ll really want to talk about. …and of course they perform like no other classic shave soap out there.

    Just had my first shave with the Roasted Oatmeal Stout sample.

    Put 4 small pieces in the bottom of the Suribachi bowl and pressed them in.

    Whipped up a wonderfully thick, creamy, slick luxurious lather that performed beautifully.
    The scent is absolutely intoxicating.

    For $10.00 this is no less than a home run...
    So much so that I just ordered 2 on their website.

    When I first looked on their site, about a week ago, this soap wasn't available so I'm thinking it might be a limited edition.
    Get 'em while you can.

    Fantastic bang for the buck indeed!! (Did I mention the scent??)
