Antica Barbieria Colla Almond Oil Hard Shaving Soap (125g)
After several years absence, ABC's Almond Oil Hard Shaving Soap is back! Totally hand-made, this soap is enriched with almond oil which moisturizes the skin and softens the beard due to its high concentration of unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. ABC's shaving soap helps to mitigate the aggressive action of the razor and to prevent skin redness due to its superior glide.

I like this soap more than their cream. It's about half the price and about as easy to lather. It has a very light scent that dissipates rapidly. The lather holds up very well and provides an excellent shave with no burning or other skin irritations. I would absolute buy it again. When I looked for it a while ago, I could not find it and wasn't sure it was even a product. Thank you Bull Goose for finding it!
Full disclosure: I did not purchase this soap from BG, but direct from ABC.
Very hard puck with a light almond scent.
Soap loads easily using a badger or boar, as you prefer. Lathering is fairly effortless, this is not a soap that you have to fuss with to get a good lather. In my experience it has a reasonably good water loading capacity.
The price is up there for sure, but given the quality of the product, ease of use and the number of shaves it will yield, I'd say it's worth it.
Shaving regularly is a necessity for most men, whether we enjoy it or treat it as a chore is up to us. I suggest enjoying the process.
Italian soap in the typical Cherry Almond scent. Works up a nice creamy lather with good slickness. Residual slickness not on par with Saponificio Varesino IMO but still an excellent soap.
Wonderful, one of the best soaps made. All shaving attributes are outstanding except lack of smell.
Great soap! Too bad you sold out. I want to buy more!
I am glad that you are enjoying the soap. A new shipment of the ABC soap should arrive this week.
