WSP Formula T BarberShop

I’ve always been impressed with the vegan rustic line of shaving soaps from WSP. The performance and value are outstanding. We now have FormulaT with shea butter and tallow. Lee has taken the existing rustic line and over time has transformed them all into Formula T which in my opinion has increased the performance of the outstanding shaving soap.

This impressive barbershop scent is typical of classic America from years gone by. The scent includes a base of powdery musk, some bergamot, orange zest, oakmoss, patchouli, and finished it with a hint of geranium. The full list of natural ingredients includes: stearic acid, water, tallow, coconut oil, potassium hydroxide, glycerin, butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter), fragrance, & sodium hydroxide. Free of synthetic dyes & preservatives.

This is a dense shaving soap and according to the website you can get 100 to 300 shaves with it. Although I can’t be sure this statement is true since I’ve never used any shaving soap I own to it’s completion. The reason for this being so dense is the long curing period given to this line. It removes the excess water which translates to a better value for the consumer.

There’s no denying that WSP soaps in general are used by straight razor shavers because of their outstanding slickness, glide and cushion. The lather I created was also amazing allowing me to really get into my 5-day old beard and completed covered my face. My razor rock slant can but very aggressive but this shaving soap but a stop to that allowing me to go over areas again and again with no irritation.

So, I really enjoyed this Formula T shave I always have them in my rotation
and if you haven’t tried them yet they do carry sample sizes of 1oz tins they even have a sample pack! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with any WSP you use Rustic or Formula T.

I located these on the maker's website, obviously, but I also located them at Maggard's Razors. I like the fact that it includes tallow. If the time comes for me to get more soap I hope I remember to check this one out for myself. Meanwhile, I might even decide to make a trade for some of this through the forum.

I also like that it includes tallow and emphasizes the fact on the tin.

About 4 months ago when I was working in Phoenix I stopped in at WSP and picked up a tin of their Rustic Sandlewood and their Silvertip synthetic shave brush. I was extremely pleased with the performance of both.
The soap loaded easily and gave a thick cushion and slick lather. I liked it so much last week I picked up tins of their T formula Tobacco and Barbershop can't wait to get home this week to try them.
I purchased the brush because I travel quite a bit and needed a brush that dries quickly. The brush has soft tips and plenty of backbone. It now has a permanent spot in my travel bag. Liked it so much I bought one for a good friend.

I have two of the original formula and they give wonderful shaves----purchased same scents in Formula T and now they are super soaps. The Formula T provides a very nice post shave feel and also does not dry out my face, WIN-WIN! If anyone is on the fence, I think you will be pleased with WSP Formula T. I have only used Barbershop and Citrus Blast. I received Mahogany in a trade, but have not tried it yet.
