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.

Nice soap
I love Proraso Green, great shaving soap. Very easy to lather, and you get a ton of lather with very little effort. Nice and slick, great smell, nice shave. And I like the bracing menthol and eucalyptus. Good price too. :)

diamond in the rough
decided to try this out just to see and was blown away by the lather on this soap. especially for a non tallow soap. think it gets lost in the shuffle at it's price point with bigger name soap out there but more than holds it's own. has a lovely scent and a great post shave fell. definitely a good sleeper.

Great Stuff
Love this stuff. With the menthol smell, it's a little like putting Noxzema on your face, but I really like the cool feeling and it does and excellent job of softening up my whiskers. It has become an essential part of my shave routine.

Near perfect
This stuff rocks!! I've used gels, regular foam shave cream. This soap is the best. I have less bums and cuts. I love the feeling when the menthol kicks in.

Fabulous Product!
I am (was) a "died-in-the-wool" Proraso user -- their "green" (menthol and eucalyptus) pre-shave balm, shaving cream (tube and hard soap), and aftershave. But, just recently, I tried the Cella hard cream/soap, and was absolutely amazed at how good it was! Creamy! Great lather! Smooth! And what a fabulous aroma, of almonds. Totally unlike the "frozen face" menthol effect that you get from the green Prosaso. There is no need at all for any pre-shave balm or pre-shave oil -- the Cella lather is that creamy and smooth ! The almond scent is light and dissipates quickly (just like the Prosaso aftershave) so you can add your favorite cologne without worrying about competing fragrances. And best of all -- my face does not feel "oily" or greasy later in the day (which after-effect i used to get from some of the big-name English products that I had tried and then abandoned.) This is now in my weekly "rotation" (as an alternative to the still-great "green" Proraso products ) as my "go to" shaving cream. Try it! You'll be enthralled, as I was. The Italians definitely know a thing or two about shaving!

Softest Soap and the BEST lather
I have ordered many soaps from West Coast Shaving, and this soap is by far the greatest. The texture of the soap before the lather is almost a lather in itself. This is the softest soap I have ever had my hands on. The fragrance is strong but not emasculating and the lather is rich and fast. I recommend this as a wet shave beginner soap, as well as a seasoned vet.
