Product Description

Vitos Shaving Soap Block (Extra Super) - 1Kg

Product

Imported from Italy, this classic shave cream soap 'block' is tallow based and very similar to the 'classic' GREEN version but with added Glycerin for lubrication. With an almond overtone it is easily worked into a very rich and thick lather and provides for an excellent shave. It is a semi-soft soap so easily transferable into your favourite shaving bowl or mug. This is a large 'professional' format 1kg block. Made in Italy.

How to use

This block should be reduced in size and can be warmed slightly and then molded to a pot. Simply work the top of the soap with a wet (not soaking) shaving brush until the bristles are 'loaded' with shaving soap. Now apply the soap to the areas to be shaved, using  the shaving brush in a strong circular motion. This softens the hairs and also raises them ready for shaving. When finished briefly rinse the top of the soap and shake excess water off. A great size to divide and share with friends!

Recommended for

All skin types

Grooming tip

Whilst taking a shower soak your shaving brush in hot water. When you are finished your shower both your stubble and brush will be ready for a shave!

  1. Second thoughts - a skin-saver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2021

    I have been working through my rotation of blades, including a few that I don't much like but feel I ought to use up! What I have found is that the Extra Super has changed my opinion of both Feather and 7 O'clock Super Sharp (yellow pack). I never thought Feathers were as good as some people think but with this soap they give consistently excellent shaves (although hardly worth their premium price IMO). The 7 O'clocks were a recent purchase and, while I liked their sharpness my skin did not get on with them. Now, with the Vitos lather, I am finding them just superb! I get no burn, despite shaving daily, and I can use about any light after-shave product, including alcohol-based to feel happy with my shave all day. Nothing has changed apart from the croap, so bravo Vitos!


  2. A 'why change?' product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2021

    Unless you are constantly seeking that illusive perfection (in which case this block will be annoyingly long-lasting!) or a vegan I can see no reason to look for anything better. The consistency is great for refilling a wooden soap bowl, is sufficiently soft to load well but provides great cushioning, which I find some creams do less well. The scent is fine unless you do not like almond (I am unimpressed by the smell of soap, since it is gone after a good rinse, alum rub, further rinse and application of an after-shave prep). Most importantly, the lather builds very quickly to a rick whipped cream consistency and holds its structure through the shave. It seems to have good slickness, but I use a pre-shave oil, so that helps.

    Using trusted razor and blade I get an excellent, comfortable shave and no irritation. What's not no like?
