Kells Shaving Soap



The Book of Kells is one of the greatest achievements of Christian and Irish art. 

Dated to sometime around 800 AD, it is a massive and incredibly hand-decorated vellum manuscript containing four gospels of the New Testament that is far more visually stimulating than it is legible across its 340 pages.Thought to have been written by Celtic monks, it would have taken many years, perhaps across generations, to complete.  The illustrations show similarities enough to show that at least four individuals were responsible for the incredible art that resides within the pages. Today the book rests at Trinity College in Dublin.

This Shaving Soap by Murphy and McNeil is composed of a mix of high quality oils and ingredients that create a dense, creamy lather for an excellent shave.

Great soap

I have been stopped several times and asked what cologne I’m wearing and I tell them about the after shave. I get an awesome shave and my skin feels great. It’s my everyday soap now. Great job guys.

Great scent & great performance

Wonderfully scented soap that performs excellently. Delivered a BBS shave the first time and since. Would purchase again.

Top notch, top tier, top everything.

My second full tub purchase. Fantastic scent. Pleasing to my nose and (even better) to my spouse's. I won't try to comment on the smell itself except to say that it is a cologne-type one. I will confess to swiping the shaving brush over my forearm so I can grab a smell or two after the shave itself (have I mentioned I like it?). Only thing better than the scent is the way the soap performs. Top notch, top tier, top everything. Lathers very easily, razor glides effortlessly. My face loves this Aon base.

Great performance

Blown away by his packaging and presentation, Murphy and McNeil has made a great all around soap. Nice cologne scent from Kells. I recommend

Kells is an elite soap!

I just shaved this morning with a sample of Kells. Be careful, it is soft and easy to overload your brush. I added what seemed like a ton of water and it produced a thick, slick and cushiony lather with a very glossy sheen to it. You don’t have to work very hard to produce a great lather that has very stiff peaks like meringue. You will know you have added enough water when you get a nice sheen. The shave produced a BBS with no weepers or irritation. Post shave is very comfortable also. I will order a full pick of Kells.
