This shave stick is perfect for travel - roughly 1/3 size of a regular stick. Don't worry though - we include two refills. This product costs a bit more due to the additional labor involved as opposed to a standard stick. This stick works well without a brush if you want to minimize your flight baggage.
Net Weight: 2 oz. (The stick holds 2/3 oz and we send two refills refills)
Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Kokum Butter, Illepe Butter, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Coconut Oil, Lye (KOH), Reconstituted Aloe Juice, Goat Milk, Myristic Acid, Lye (NaOH), Lanolin, Castor Oil, Bentonite Clay, Fragrance (If applicable), Tussah Silk
We only offer products that we would use ourselves and have extensively tested everything in our store. Everything we sell is backed by our best shave guarantee.
A Must-have for Travel.
I finally got around to picking up one of these after faithfully using HC&C soaps for about two years (current and previous base). It doesn't disappoint one bit! In true HC&C fashion, it lathers right up very easily. You really don't need much product at all to get enough creamy lather for a 3-pass shave. Slickness is fabulous! I wet the face, apply the stick (ATG) and face lather with my brush. After a few swirls, I drip the scent oil onto the brush and continue face lathering. It easily fits inside any Dopp kit with plenty of room for anything else you need. If you like HC&C soap (and who doesn't?), get one of these for travel!!
I am a bit of a militant “one bag carry on” traveler and have been looking for some time for the perfect travel shave soap. Don’t get me wrong, the HC&C Shave Stick is definitely not JUST a travel shave soap. It is an awesome daily driver as well, but in one bag minimalist travel size does matter, and large ain’t good here! At $13.50 for the stick plus a 1 oz refill the price is $6.75/oz which on IAMCDB’s price chart is pricey, but if you buy travel size toothpaste you pay triple the price of regular toothpaste. If you purchase Pete’s regular size 5 ounce soaps for $21 you are down to $4.20/oz which is in IAMCDB’s Fair price range. Now to the actual product … WOW, it’s a winner! First couple of uses I used entirely too much product. In fact, just to prove a point I lathered up for a first pass shave, then just added a little water to my face and the residual slickness was plenty for a second pass without additional product. Post shave was exceptional, and a little Witch Hazel was all I needed to complete my shave. I highly recommend this product to anyone for daily use, but especially for anyone who travels a lot. It is great! One hint, Pete said to put refill stick in refrigerator to firm up prior to reloading the stick. I haven’t had to reload yet, but plan on doing this when the time comes. Enjoy your shaves.
