    Maggard Razors Artisan Shave Soap – Limes & Bergamot instantly moves to the top of my shave soap rotation. A 10 of 10’s, an A+. My Vie Long Boar/Horsehair combo brush lathered easily in the scuttle, lather remained plentiful in the scuttle, lather retained fullness on the face after application, skin protected very nicely during the shave, razor glided well during the shave, nice aroma without overpowering the user. After 3 passes the scuttle was filled with enough lather probably for 2 more shaves. This is a home run, thank you.

    I primarily shave with creams as opposed to soaps but I think this may change after using Maggard Razors Artisan Shave Soap. I was instructed that loading my brush for about 30 seconds would give me enough to put together a nice lather. In reality it only took about 10 seconds. With my badger brush loaded I whipped up a very strong lather comparable to my TOBS creams that was very aromatic but not overpowering. It felt smooth on the face and applied very evenly with little effort. The Limes and Bergamot scent is invigorating and makes your shaving experience very pleasant. The lather did not dry out during my shave and there was still more to be had after three passes. A single tub of this soap could last me nearly a year from the looks of it. (I shave every couple of days.)

    Really nice stuff. I found it easy to lather up even though I have very hard water. Had a nice slickness to it, my razor practically glided over my tough whiskers. My face also felt nice and moisturized after the shave. The scent is very nice, really smells like fresh cut limes. my only issue had with the stuff is the burning sensation on my face, not sure if that’s suppose to happen or maybe some kind of reaction to the ingredients but still though it left me with a nice shave and still very happy with this purchase.

    I just used the new Limes & Bergamot soap. It is soft “croap”. You get 5 oz. in an 8 oz. jar. You can lather right from the large jar. After about 10-15 seconds of swirling with my oscar11 2-band finest brush, it produced a quick easy, thick lather with excellent glide and cushioning. I had more than enough lather for a 3-pass shave. I got a great smooth, close, and nick free shave. I really like this new soap. The scent is also one of the nicest that I have used so far. You get mostly the Lime when you open the jar, but once you start swirling the brush the Bergamot kicks in with some spiciness. This is a great scent combination. I am looking forward to the next shave.

    One thing I do not like about lime soaps and creams is the citric acid irritation. This soap is free of that! With my other limes, my nostrils get irritated and the soaps end up sitting towards the back of my rotation. However, this lime is really easy on my face with no irritation. And the bergamot adds a certain something to the soap which puts it ahead of all the other limes. The scent and performance are top notch, yielding a very slick and protective lather. Highly recommended.

    This is one of te freshest most natural lime scent I’ve had the pleasure of using. It honestly smells like a citeus fruit freshly picked from the tree. The soap lathers easily and creates a nice protective lather similar to most high end artisan soaps. The generously sized tub leaves plenty of room to load your brush without much mess.

    I received a sample of the Limes & Bergamot the other day. I pushed it down into a separate container to be able to load my brush and begin face lathering. If you’ve tried HTGAM’s Synergy Shaving Soap, you will find that the Maggard soap’s quality of lather rivals it in slickness and cushion. I was very impressed! The scent is absolutely fantastic. The only other lime scent I’ve loved is the HTGAM Lime, but this is definitely more on the sweet side, which I really enjoy. I loved the soap so much that I regretted not buying the full size, but that has since been remedied!

    The tub/packaging is top notch and was a really clever idea to allow the suds to remain in the tub rather than creating a mess all over the container and sink area (this is something that the Synergy soap tin and many others suffer from).

    The feel of the lather on the face is very refreshing.The Maggard soaps have jumped up to my top five shaving soaps of all time. I’m excited for my next shave with it and can’t wait to see what new soaps these guys come up with next.

    Excellent shaving soap. Very easy to load with its oversized jar. Creates a thick, cushiony lather that allows the razor to glide smoothly over the skin without skipping or sticking. The scent is very good, and of good strength. It has enough scent strength to easily last through a 3 pass shave. It has mainly a natural lime smell, with a tiny bit of spiciness to my nose (might be the bergamot). The soap doesn’t dry your skin out, either. I highly recommend it!

    Loved it! Lather was really easy to build and the texture and viscosity were really good. The scent of the soap was distinctive in the sense of the fact I could smell limes and the bergamot separately at a solid level throughout the shave. Some other brands I have tried I could smell a “hint” of this then that and some seem to loose or die down in sent on your face or in the bowl but the Maggard Limes & Bergamot maintained a solid sent which filled the bathroom, even about a half hour later I could still smell it faintly. I was fortunate enough to drive an hour to the store to sample things and it was well worth it. So having been there and got the t-shirt literally, I can tell you you will love this soap, I did smell the other scents of the Maggard line and they are plesantly scented as well but the Limes & Bergamot is a really nice scent and it performed well under the aggressive slant bar I used. Again I loved it.

    More limes than bergamot, this soap has catapulted into one of my favourite brands of soap – and I have tried a fair few! The soap lathers with very little effort and creates a rich and slick lather with a high water tolerance. I absolutely love the scent which, as I mentioned earlier, smells more of limes than bergamot but with a distinct bergamot after note. I find that the scent doesn’t hang around long after my shave, which is something I prefer as it will not clash with my colognes as some other creams do.

    An amazing Lime! Just used sample for the first time and folks, this is by far the best (only Taconic even comes a close second). Perfect lather, easy glide with blade, stays put and leaves face fresh. The scent still lingers for a good hour or two for me. Not at all overpowering. Will be getting full jar next!

  12. 5 out of 5


    Wow!!! I’ve taken a real liking to citrus aromas when shaving, and this one delivers like no other I have yet tried. Smells as if you’ve just cut a fresh lime, not the artificial furnish polish aroma some products have. The floral bergamot notes take a bit of a back seat, but are there. Great lather and glide, 5 stars isn’t enough, this is an incredible soap.

  13. 5 out of 5


    Great soap !!! Excellent foam and flavor! I recommend!
    Booked two more Fougère Sauvazhe and Orange Menthol

  14. 5 out of 5


    Outstanding lather and scent. Loaded in no time and got a great 3 pass shave. I’m excited to try the other scents!

  15. 5 out of 5


    This is an excellent citrus soap with a powerful scent of Lime as soon as it’s opened, and one hell of a lather. It left my skin feeling tingly, clean, and smooth.

  16. 5 out of 5


    I wanted to use the Maggard Limes & Bergamot again. I had a GREAT shave today! This Maggard soap is a winner! It lathers quickly and easily and has a terrific scent. It will knock another soap out of the rotation as I start to pair down some.

  17. 5 out of 5


    This, my friends is an amazing scent in an amazing shaving soap. It knocks your socks off scent-wise and it lathers and shaves like a dream. Used it with only my 2d shave with a Wade & Butcher which is unlike my other razors….it covered all my doubt with slickness, smoothness and staying power, lather-wise. I’m a fan, can you tell?

  18. 5 out of 5


    I got this before the Thanksliving soap. I love it. Great lather, slick, a pleasure to shave with. I’m switching back and forth between the two. The scent of lime and bergamot is fantastic. When I’m shaving, my wife comes in and says it smells sooooo good. Absolutely great soap.

  19. 5 out of 5


    100% essential oils in this soap create s true snd potent line scent with a hint of earthiness. Very refreshing in the morning and a fantastic performer. Thanks Maria Arman, another hit!

  20. 5 out of 5


    Used for the first time today and it performed beautifully. Easy to load, slick and the smell was a great way to start the day. I have very sensitive skin so i was a little nervous but no irritation at all. I almost can’t wait to shave tomorrow. Worth a buy.

  21. 5 out of 5


    This soap is great stuff. Easy to use and smells amazing. The lime smell reminds me of a green lifesaver. Really nice strong but soothing smell.

  22. 5 out of 5


    This soap smells so good I wish I could eat it! Or mix into a drink with some white rum and mint leaves… Definitely up there with the best of the artisan soaps IMO. Beautiful, slick lather that wouldn’t quit. Left my face feeling moisturised afterwards too.

  23. 5 out of 5


    Amazing soap! I don’t usually write reviews but this stuff is truly great! I started off with the London Barber and tried the Lime for the first time today! It lathers up super fast, nice and thick, provides and excellent cushion and smells amazing! I can not wait for them to come out with some more scents! Thank you for the great work! 🙂

  24. 5 out of 5


    One of my favorite soaps. I originally got it as a sample then later was given as a gift. It lathered super quick, amazing slickness and best of all the smell. Im a sucker for lime and your looking for something like that this is what you should get. You wont want to stop sniffing it.

  25. 4 out of 5


    Awesome fresh scent. smells so natural and real, almost edible. Lathers so well and has a lot slickness. I did however find the scent very overpowering. A bit too strong and in your face. Overall and awesome soap at an incredible price.

  26. 5 out of 5


    I’m not much on scents, so finding a shave soap that was both inoffensive to me and my wife liked was a real achievement. I’m so pleased with this that I’m interested in getting an aftershave with the same scent – and I’ve never worn an aftershave before – I’ve always just used witch hazel instead.

    I’m so impressed with Brad and Casie’s business, and I can tell I’m going to be placing more orders. The personal responses to email inquiries are prompt, and friendly.

  27. 5 out of 5


    This soap has a great lime scent that is just fantastic. I enjoy this one every time I use it. If you like lime, buy this soap, you won’t regret it.

  28. 5 out of 5


    It’s fantastic! I have hard water and this stuff lathers much better than many soaps I’ve tried. My girlfriend likes the smell more than most too. I will be ordering more and probably adding on some of the aftershave too.

  29. 5 out of 5


    Great soap,perfect summer time scent,lathers just as well as some more expensive London soaps.

  30. 5 out of 5


    Always liked Lime and Bergamot scents and this one is top shelf. Great lather, nice slickness, loads well, Great Price! I will be back for more…

  31. 5 out of 5


    My new favorite soap. I live in Arizona where we have HARD water. This soap lathered outragously greatI I used a small Omega 10275 boar brush and had 3 lathers with soap to spare. None of my other soaps have lathered this well. I have bought many boutique soaps and creams This is hands down THE BEST!
    It smells like lime and Bergamot and feels wonderful on the face.

  32. 5 out of 5


    This was my favorite of the Maggard soap sample offerings. There’s just something about that scent, that simple Lime and Bergamot, I couldn’t get over how much I liked it. I like menthol, so I figured that that Orange & Menthol would have been my top pick, but no. I kept coming back to that darn Lime & Bergamot. The shave, of course, was great, get the right amount of product and water and my head lather was excellent, off to the races! I’m definitely going to pick up a full tub. An excellent product, and the price is right.

  33. 5 out of 5


    The lather was fantastic and post-shave, my face felt incredible. Afterward, my wife couldn’t stop smelling my face because the scent is so nice.

  34. 5 out of 5


    I liked this soap very much. It lathers rather easily and has a good fragrance. Unfortunately, I’m always wanting to try something new. Since the family owns orange groves, I believe the Orange one is next.

  35. 5 out of 5


    I thought this soap was great. It has a good fragrance and lathers well. A real smooth shaving soap and I highly recommend it.

  36. 4 out of 5


    The flavor is fantastic.
    Foam is done quickly and get excellent. I have dry skin , so I need extra moisturizing skin. In Anyway I recommend to get acquainted 🙂

  37. 5 out of 5


    Great soap and would highly recommend. Nice lime scent and loads of lather!

  38. 5 out of 5


    Just received this soap in a recent order and got to use it today for the first time. Nice rich, thick, slippery lather! Super slick and protective! Provided an excellent shave with a wonderful light fragrance. The soap should last a long time as well, as it doesn’t take much to build up a pile of lather! Thanks Kris at Maggard razors for providing your input in the selection of this amazing shaving soap. Thank you Maggard Razors for great service, as always!

  39. 5 out of 5


    Very nice scent and super thick dense lather that just keeps getting more thick the more you work it!
    Adds nice slippery feel with nice glide and heavy protection! Cant wait to try em all!

  40. 5 out of 5


    I must say I love this scent! Recently started to wet shave 4 months ago and this is my first artistian soap. Very easy to load with an Omega Boar brush and great lather and slickness.

    As of the writting of this review they are out of this scent. As soon as I see that there is more in stock I am ordering a couple more tubs. I am also ordering a few of this scent in the sample size for travel as well as the other scents to try on my next order.

  41. 5 out of 5


    Fantastic stuff! Ive got about 50 shave soaps lying around and this just moved into a top 3 rotation slot easily. Its much better than my other lime style soaps. RazoRock Lime, TOBS Lemon Lime, and Caties bubbles Rosee du Matin. Not that any of those are bad, I enjoyed them very much! This was clearly a step above them in terms of scent. Not necessarily lather, they all lathered fantastically! This product can absolutely hold it own against respected names names like TOBS and Caties, yet edging them out in the scent department makes a very impressive statement. Its about 85% lime and 15% bergamont scent wise. It gives it such a great undertone to that nice fresh lime scent, perfect combination! Dont hesitate to buy this, even if you have enough soaps and creams to last you decades, its worth adding this one.

  42. 5 out of 5


    Fantastic product with all natural ingredients for my sensitive skin. Also gives a great smooth shave.

  43. 5 out of 5


    Bar none, this is the best Lime scent ANYWHERE and the performance is fantastic as well. You can’t go wrong with any of Maggard’s Soap.

  44. 5 out of 5


    I was worried the lime scent would be too strong but I was wrong. After using it several times I have grown to love the scent. Maggard soaps are the best soaps to get as well as any soap made by Maria Arman who makes the Maggard line of soaps. Highly recommended.

  45. 5 out of 5


    Maggard has hit a home run with this soap. If it is possible for a scent to explode without being overpowering this does. The Bergamot didn’t come through for me at first, but it gradually snuck in as I lathered and stayed present for the rest of the shave. The lather itself is excellent. Great cushion and glide, it built quickly and easily and I had more than enough for 3 passes and a clean up. I will absolutely be purchasing again.

  46. 5 out of 5


    Awesome soap! Highly recommend. Can’t wait to try the other scents from Maggards

  47. 4 out of 5


    Like the smell a lot and look forward to shaving with this scent. I get razor burn easily and this is easy on my face and it conditions well. It’s pretty good shave soap and I would think that most people will be really happy. After more than 4 weeks of use I can tell this tub will last for a long time.
    Overall I like Shaving cream slightly better than shave soap. This a good choice for a soap.

  48. 5 out of 5


    This was one of my favorite smelling soaps I have ever used. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great lime scent.

  49. 5 out of 5


    Just received two samples of soaps. I am a shavette guy. Compared to the soaps, mainly Italian, that I have tried, the Maggard Lime & Bergamot is a winner. Great smell, great lather even with my small boar brush. I love it. I wish I had more extra money for my wet shaving passion. I can surely recommend this one to anyone looking for a citrus soap.

  50. 5 out of 5


    So refreshing and satisfying. A must to have in my rotation. The lather is lighter than some, but still very slick and effective. A great summer soap.
