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.

Great quality

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Stirling Gentleman This shaving soap easily works up to a rich lather and gives me an exceptionally comfortable shave. While I'm not a fan of the scent, my wife likes it, and the scent has staying power (for lack of a better term) that I've yet to find in any other soap. Four stars for outstanding quality and comfort.

Barrister & Mann Glissant Shaving Soap, Rhapsody The soap is great like all other B&M soaps. I've liked most B&M scents but I didn't like this one at first, but the smell has grown on me.

J.M. Fraser's Original Shaving Cream Like some of the other reviewers, I've sampled quite a few shaving soaps over the years--and this stuff is the best! Just the 'quantity' alone makes it a better buy than other tubs of soap. It works into a good lather quickly (at least for me it does...); and it is easy to use way more than you actually need--that is why whipping it up in a mug or cup is essential. You can tell if you're using too much, by how long it takes to rinse your brush clean. If it takes a lot of water to get all of the soap out--you used too much. No shave soap can compensate for a bad blade, so use this with your favorite (best?) blade to really appreciate how much of a difference a GREAT soap makes!

Helps Prevent Razor Rash/Burn

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Bowl, Lavender I have very sensitive skin, and if I use shave cream in a can, I get bad razor burn. With Taylor's the razor glides over my skin and no rash! I got the lavender, but the almond is pretty amazing too.

Col Conk Shaving Soap, Almond Large 3.75 oz Hello Don B.

Read your comments and they started me thinking. With my stiffer brushes, this soap takes a few turns to start building a lather. And with my soft Van Hagen brush, it builds a lather almost instantly. Have tried several different creams and soaps including Proviso | hope I'm spelling it correctly | and this lowly almond soap is my favorite.

Side note: The Proviso, for me, was hard to lather and didn't seem to offer any glide for my razor. So, I dumped the soap and filled the nice red container with the tight fitting lid then filled it with Col. Conk. This gave me a good soap for my trips out of town.

Col Conk Shaving Soap, Almond Large 3.75 oz i haven't tried the soap yet. I got the impression from the site that it was for a scuttle. I like the smell so wanted to try it. Need to find a bowl.

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.
