Traditional Italian shaving cream with a light almond scent.

Fantastic shaving soap, really easily forms a nice lather without having to pre wet. I use the product with a Proraso shaving mug and that’s where the magic really happens! This soap LOVES water, a few drops and rather than collapsing the foam gets silkier and smoother. The almond fragrance may not be for everyone, but I love it!

In my humble opinion it is the best of the lot, when you take into account quality, performance and price.

I struggle with shaving. I almost gave up wet shaving all together. This soap saved everything.
I have very sensitive skin and after trying the usual suspects TOBS/Proraso/Tradional Shave co… This soap/cream hybrid by Cella has outshone them all. This soap has finally allowed me to achieve a close shave without irritation, I can’t overstate how happy this makes me – as I have been struggling for months to get an irritation free close shave. This is fantastically lubricating allowing the right blade (I used a Gillete Sharp Edge) to plough through stubble smoothly and effectively. After shaving I was actually astounded by the smoothness I had managed to achieve. Not only that, I felt like my skin wasn’t sapped of moisture as with the other soaps/creams, enough so that I didn’t even feel the need to use a moisturiser post shave. All I did to finish up was apply a few splashes of aftershave lotion.
Regarding producing the lather, it was very easy although it perhaps requires more water than i’m used to giving most creams – this is totally fine as it makes the product go further! Hard water shouldn’t be an issue too as where I live the water hardness is classed as ‘Very Hard’, 21.10 on the hardness clark. So yea…
This is certainly worth the money – if you are struggling with wet shaving this is certainly worth a try. Happy Shaving 🙂

If you like almond scent, you must try this! It’s pretty rich and sleek once you get it right. I’ve been using it for a year now and I’m very pleased. Being used to creams and new to soaps, it took me a few attempts at first to get the hang of it, then a wow moment: a rich, smooth lather that doesn’t dry out on your face as you shave (I take my time) like some lower quality creams I used before. I find that dropping a couple of warm water drops in the Cella tube before the shave softens the surface making it easier to pick it up. Work it through with the brush directly from the tub – a robust brush is better suited than a soft one, for using with Cella. The 150g tube is long-lasting, making it great value. I recommend it, especially if you want a quality product for less, or simply if you fancy trying a nice soap from Italy at a sensible price.

I bought this soap because I like the smell of marzipan and was not disappointed it is a very slick soap very protective to the face I have tried other soaps but this is by far the best at a good price from shave lounge you can’t beat them free delivery what more can you ask for so if you like a nice smelling slick soap then try this you won’t be disappointed.

After perhaps being a little unfair to the Cella Bowl in a review of another product elsewhere on this site, I feel I should redress the balance here. Previously when using this I had been in the process of trying different blades & also my knowledge had been a little lacking, gave it a few goes & left it to make it’s way to the back of my shelf. Turns out Cella is a thirsty beast. So now with my gear & routine consistant I gave it another go. Boar brush, dripping wet not shaken off, I loaded from the product bowl & face lathered (always these days), adding a little more water to the brush as I went.. WoW. A wonderful, slick cushioning lather, just like I had heard about. I love the smell which only lasts the shave duration & this is the only strong smelling product I use, all my other creams & soaps are neutral or feint smelling. Soap should smell of soap for me, it’s not on your face for long, couldnt care less if it pongs of rockpools, fruit or rum (& I love all those), but Cella only has one smell, Marzipan. You need to like that to be able to give it a go. YUMM. I Live in south London, V.Hard water but products with lots of glycerin work ok, dont know why it didnt before. Cella just needs water from the off unlike any of the other creams or soaps I use where you add a little H2O & slow build. Really glad I gave it a few more goes, wonderful shave, no nicks (not tired & concentrating). Didnt buy mine from here but will replace from Shave Lounge when it runs out. Has become a Fave now I’ve sussed it.
This is the only place I shave shop now unless I need Hasliger Ewe’s Milk. Shave Lounge are you ever going to stock some?
