"I have found it surprisingly difficult to find a good shave bar to use with my safety razor. This one smells delicious and lasts for a decently long time! Definitely recommend."
It smells good, the packaging was just a box with the soap inside it no BS plastic or paper packaging inside it to protect the items. worked great on my face for shaving vs what i was using before. obviously i need more practice using it since it dried up on my face since I've never shaved with a bar before. but i got some tips from a friend for next time
Hi Kyle - super excited that you're enjoying our minimalist packaging! It can take some time to adjust to shave with a bar and safety razor but it's totally worth it! Thanks for your support!
This shave bar is great, you only need a few turns in the hand to get enough to later your legs and your skin is soft afterwords. So very pleased to say goodbye to traditional shaving cream and hello to a far more eco friendly zero waste alternative. The fact it’s local is even better to help reduce our footprints.
Hi Laura - we're glad you came across our company, we're grateful for the support! thanks for doing your part in reducing plastic consumption!
So happy to find a good alternative to aerosols. I do have a hard time working up much lather, but that doesn’t seem necessary for good results. Leaves skin smelling great and feeling smooth.
Hi Sue - thanks for the review. We think less water makes it easier to lather, but that's just from our experience. We're glad you're willing to not give up on the planet even if the road to sustainability involves a lot of changes.
I am so happy with this alternative to aerosols. I have a hard time getting a good lather, but the point is that it works, no bubbles necessary. Leaves skin feeling smooth and smelling great.
Hi Sue - thanks for your review, we're so grateful that you appreciate our products!!
I have found it surprisingly difficult to find a good shave bar to use with my safety razor (I used to not use any sort of shaving cream but I find it is necessary with a safety razor). This one smells delicious and lasts for a decently long time! Definitely recommend.
Thanks Tracey for your review, we are so happy you're loving our shave bar!!

Canned shaving cream.
Shaving cream is packed full of chemicals that leave your skin red, irritated, and dried out, which can lead to those annoying, tiny, raised red bumps.
Back in the day (ok, back in the 90’s, which really isn’t that long ago) aerosol cans contained chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which played a major role in the depletion of the Ozone layer. CFCs have now been banned in most countries, however, not in all.
Unfortunately, most aerosol cans (including the ones you use for shaving cream) use volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to propel their product. Once in the air, VOCs contribute to ground-level Ozone levels, contributing to smog production.
At life UNpacked our shave bars are 100% natural, chemical-free, and biodegradable.. So take them with you on your next outdoor adventure.
How To Use
- Wet your shave bar.
- Hold directly to the skin and rub in a circular motion or rub shave bar between your hands to lather.
- Shave as you normally would.
- Store lifted on travel tin insert or soap saver. *Drain your travel tin after each use to prevent your shave bar from sitting in a puddle!
