Shaving Cream and Shaving Soaps Education

Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps are a pivotal part of the shaving experience. They add a layer of lubrication and protection to the skin that keep your skin healthy during the shaving process. Some of the shaving products have essential oils that go further and nourish the skin. All these aspects make the Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps that we sell leaps and bounds better than any aerosol cream that can be bought.

Shaving Cream vs Shaving Soap

Both Shaving creams and shaving soaps are made to be lathered with a shaving brush. The main difference between them is how to lather the different products. Creams need to be lathered in a separate container than what they were stored in, like a shaving bowl. A small amount of cream goes a long way. If you lather directly in the container the cream comes in, you will end up using too much cream for each shave, and it will not last long. Shaving soaps are hard, and are made to lather directly on the surface of the soap puck. Shaving soap takes a little longer to lather up.

Creating a lather with Shaving Products

To create a lather, place the shaving cream, soap, or croap into a shaving bowl. Wet your brush with warm water, shake out most of the water, and begin working the product in a circular motion with the brush. A lather will begin to form. Use the brush to apply and work the lather onto your face. Brushless shaving creams do not lather and can be applied directly to your face.

Prep Cream, tube Now that I'm into 'wet' shaving with DE blades, I noticed I was stockpiling an enormous quantity of "shaving gear." I'm going on vacation in July, and wanted a tube of SOMETHING that I could use as both a PRE-shave, and a AFTER-shave balm. This stuff fills the bill...and you can use it on sunburns, too! (Except--like a vampire--I hate being out in the sun!!) I have other AFTER shave balms that I like better--when I'm at home--but for a week on the road, this one tube saves space in my bag!

Likable Lemon

Barrister & Mann Latha Shaving Soap, Limon On days when I feel like a lemon scented shave, I'll be reaching for this product. The smell is aptly described in the reviews. It is dominatingly lemon with more faint note of roses. Not only is it a great scent, it is a great performing product.



Appreciate the service West Coast Shaving provides. Visiting the store in person someday is on the bucket-list.

Q:How do you lather a cream and soap?
Answers

A:With the cream you will want to scope about a nickel size of the cream in to a bowl. Make sure the brush has enough water and start to use paint brush strokes or circular strokes to begin lathering. Eventually you will build a nice lather. For the soap, it is similar to a cream, but you just lather directly onto the soap. Make sure the brush has enough water and do a few strokes to lather the soap. This will get some soap in the brush and then you can finish by face lathering.

A:A more natural type of cream would be best for sensitive skin. Taylor of Old Bond Street makes a natural cream and Proraso has a Green Tea & Oat cream that we would recommend for people with sensitive skin.

Q:What is the difference between creams and soaps?
Answers

A:Creams tend to be easier to make a lather and provide more protect because it makes a thicker lather. The soap tends to be a little harder to lather, but adds more glide for the razor and last a lot longer. It the end it comes down to a personal choice between the two. We recommend trying both and deciding which you prefer, or some people use both creams and soaps.
