Faena Shaving Soap with Tallow - Philosoap

( 3 Reviews )

Faena Philosoap Shaving Soap

Faena Philosoap Shaving Soap was a scent requested by Faena's most cherished customers and friends. Philosoap, the "friend of soap" facilitates an exceptional shaving process and leaves behind on the skin a conditioning layer, without the use of an aftershave. The blade glide and the conditioning that is provided by a tallow and lanolin based shaving soap is incomparable. The use of vanilla may result in soap discolouring, this however will not harm the shaving and conditioning properties of the soap. Matching Faena Philosoap Aftershave Balm available.

Scent Profile: Inspired by the highly acclaimed Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.

Size: 150g in a blue PET jar with embossed lid

Ingredients: Tallow, aqua (water), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, stearic acid, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, lanolin, glycerin, kaolin, dehyroacetic acid (and) benzyl alcohol, parfum (fragrance).


The Faena shaving range is sourced directly from the artisan manufacturers based on the idyllic Island of Lesvos, Greece. They source and use as many local ingredients as possible and aim to produce their products in an environmentally friendly way. Starting by producing products which were only used by family and friends, the business has expanded due to increased demand. The overall philosophy of this family business is to combine the natural abundance and prosperity of Lesvos, with the local traditions and methods, in order to meet the need for superior high quality shaving products.

Faena philisoap shaving soap

Very satisfied with this purchase. Slickness, residual slickness, great thick and massive amount of lather. Post shave experience also impressive. After a couple of hours it leaves the feelings of a fresh gentle soft skin. The scent it self not exactly quiet related to Tom Ford Vanillin Tobacco but it's very pleasant and suitable in winter period.

Great - but not Tobacco Vanille

Faena are wonderful and criminally underrated. This is a genuinely great smelling, sweet gourmand, biscuity soap, that performs really, really well. The one thing it is not, however, is a Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille clone. It may well have been inspired by it, but here that means exactly that - this is not an emulation - it is a completely different scent. I still recommend it highly. If you do want a clone, try Stirling Soap's Haverford.
