'Shibusa' is a Japanese concept that originally meant something 'bitter' but the word now describes a thing or person that is calm and classy with a rough, natural edge. It's the perfect word for this product, The Goodfellas' Smile Shibusa 2 Shaving Soap.
The Goodfellas' Smile have developed their original Shibusa soap into this second version, now with tallow. It's one of only a handful of tallow soaps produced by them, the others being Tallow N.1 and Inferno.
Inspired by Italy's Acqua di Parma and almond fragrances, first and foremost this has a pleasant, sweet aroma. You'll also find notes of anise, pesco and ylang ylang along with vanilla and white musk. The result is a calm aroma with a touch of woody pungency. It's perfectly balanced -- certainly classy but natural at the same time.
Shibusa 2 comes in a black plastic 100ml tub with a screw-top lid. Like many Italian shaving soaps, it has a soft consistency and turns into a fantastic lather easily. To use, load a wet shaving brush by dabbing it onto the product and then whip up into a lather in a shaving bowl or apply directly to the face before shaving.
You'll be able to create a full-bodied foam quickly that's sensationally smooth. The skin remains hydrated and the fragrance is not overpowering throughout the day, for those who like more subtle scents.
The Goodfellas’ Smile are renowned for their bold branding, with all products displaying eye catching imagery and fonts upon their packaging. The Shibusa 2 Shaving Soap is no exception to this rule, featuring artistic imagery of a Japanese samurai type figure that is sure to capture anyone’s attention, making it a striking addition to your shaving set.
