OSP Shaving Soap
My shaving soap is the jewel in the OSP crown. Containing high levels of tallow, coconut oil and avocado oil amongst others, it is then crammed full of lanolin, shea butter, glycerin, and kaolin clay so as to ensure your beard and skin are fully prepared for the shave ahead!
All ingredients are natural, organic and unrefined where possible to ensure that as much goodness as possible remains in the soap.
Thirteen scents are currently available, all made with essential oils - I will never use fragrance oils in shaving soaps! All shaving soaps weigh 140g, and come in sturdy plastic screw lid containers.
The labels are no-nonsense and colour coded. The soaps are named so that you know what you are getting, you won't find any names like "Conscientiousness" or "Camaraderie" here! Just plain and simple soap that is 100% good for your skin. If it doesn't help your skin in some way, it isn't included, simple as that!
Bay Rum - Deep, spicy bay with fresh lime, with whispers of cinnamon and clove.
Lavender - A beautiful mixed species of lavender with crisp pure lavender notes, with a earthy herb base.
Sandalwood - Real Indian sandalwood. To my knowledge there is nothing else like it on the market!
Neroli - Beautiful floral scent from the flower of the bitter orange tree. This is stunning unisex scent!
Grapefruit & Menthol - Fresh white grapefruit with a chilling touch of menthol. Perfect for a hot day.
Barbershop - Bergamot, lavender, patchouli, cedar wood and a touch of basil to take you back to the roots of wet shaving!
Fougere - Notes of lavender, Bergamot, patchouli, jasmine, clove, sandalwood and cedar wood remind us of walking through a forest in spring.
Orange & Patchouli - Sweet orange top note with strong woody patchouli (not incense).
Lemon and Cedar wood - Strong hit of lemon followed by fresh cedar wood to invigorate the senses.
Peppermint & Rosemary - Strong peppermint opens this scent, with rosemary undertones to give a fresh wake up call.
Spice Road - A pungent blend of spices coupled with a good dash of sandalwood brings back memories from decades ago.
Eucalyptus & Menthol - Strong Eucalyptus with the face freezing power of strong menthol. This will really open the airways!
Lemon, Peppermint & Menthol - Fresh Lemon with a dab of peppermint and strong menthol to give you a serious wake up call.
Shogun - One of the OSP classics, with May Chang and Ginger essential oils. This is a refreshing oriental blast! WARNING! This Aftershave Tonic does give a mild burning sensation, so if you are adverse to this type of feeling on your skin, this may not be the product for you.
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium&Potassium Tallowate, Sodium&Potassium Stearate, Sodium&Potassium Castorate, Glycerin, Sodium&Potasisum Cocoate, Parfum, Sodium&Potassium Avocadate, Butyrospermum Parkii, Lanolin, Kaolin (plus other ingredients depending on fragrance)

Shogun - Exquisite
Posted by Tom J on 29th Oct 2018
I've many of the OSP soaps and it's really hard to choose a favourite. However, this is definitely into joint first place (with Fougere and Spice Road).
For me, Shogun is akin to pampering (i.e. a luxurious treat)
It should, if you've used these soaps before, go without saying usual OSP stuff applies to make it a worth while purchase (else it's just a nice scent).
Fresh summer cooler

The Lemon Peppermint & Menthol shaving soap was refreshing with the wonderful scent of Lemon & Peppermint and a touch of Menthol. It wasn't a face freezer which I was happy with but it was strong enough to make my eyes water a provide a nice cooling effect throughout the shave. The performance of OSP soap is always the best, only the scent's change!
On the back of this I may buy the white Grapefruit & Menthol and I'm sure I will be as happy.
Would I recommend the Lemon, Peppermint & Menthol?
Yes I would as I would recommend all of the OSP range of shaving soap.
OSP Neroli Shave Soap

Bought the Neroli shave soap and so glad I did. Fantastic performance in cushion and glide but the post shave is what really stands out. A favourite in my rotation now for sure!

Following reviews on Tapatalk Shaving Forum, made my first purchase of a OSP product.
I chose the ‘Barber Shop’ Shaving Soap.
When used it produced a lovely, thick lather which acted as a good lubricant for my Sensor Razor.
The smell was okay, nothing special.
I would choose another style of soap next time, not the ‘Barber Shop’ which didn’t smell good to me personally.
I would definitely recommend the actual Shaving Soap.
On a final note, P & P was fast and efficient.

Tremendous soap. Lots of tallowy goodness and, as always, a great post shave feel. Excellent service from James.
Best shaving soap ever used.

This review is for the Sandalwood Shaving Soap. The smell is fantastic. The lather is thick and really slick. James was as a pleasure to business with.

This instantly became a favourite. Great scent, and loads of quality lather. Recommended.
SOME OF THE BEST

OSP soaps are fantastic.
The performance of these soaps is a great topper for a clean ingredient list.
James has always been very friendly and immensely helpful. Have no problem at all recommending OSP soaps to ANYONE.
Thanks, James, for a fantastic product.

I spent ages and ages looking for a quality british made shaving soap. Then i stumbled upon OSP. So glad that i did! I chose the grapefruit and menthol. It smells amazing and gives a wonderful shave. If you want a quality reasonable priced shaving soap. This is the one for you!
