Imperial

Birchbox Breakdown

Designed by veteran barbers, Imperial’s two-in-one facial cleanser and shaving soap is as no-nonsense and effective as they come. The glycerin-based formula thoroughly cleanses skin without any drying, and works equally well as a protective shaving lather. In addition to being a space-saver, the translucent bar is completely scent-free.

How it Works

The soap’s pure vegetable glycerin formula generates a rich lather that’s just as good for cleansing as it is for prepping facial hair for a shave. Vitamin E works with safflower, palm, and coconut oils soften skin, and ensuring a smooth blade glide should you opt to shave.

How to Use

To use as a facial soap, work up a lather in hands and apply to damp skin. Massage into your face, then rinse with warm water. For traditional wet shaving, use hands or a shaving brush to work into a lather with warm water. Apply to damp facial hair. Shave and rinse thoroughly.

Great stuff.

Actually received this as a gift. Great soap and great shaving cream. I'm just starting to use shaving cream with a brush and bowl, so I'm having a hard time getting the lather but I love this stuff !

My boyfriend was ok with it
Purchased

I gave this to my boyfriend as a gift. He likes the close shave that he gets, but it doesn't really work into that good of a lather, which he likes. I don't think I'll get it for him again.

Great for shaving
Purchased

I tried this instead of my usual face wash and wasn't a fan. It took a while to rinse off

Then I tried it instead of my regular shaving cream, I was thoroughly impressed! Used with a brush and safety razor. It has me shaving more often and provides a very close shave.
