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.

OK for a travel cream
4/29/2017
I've used this cream before, I've bought it from a local store because I was out of my usual shaving cream. It's ok. Does a decent job if you're in a pinch. Some folks were complaining about it not lathering, but this cream is brushless, just rub it on your face, don't need much and it's pretty slick. It would be a good tube to carry with you if you were traveling.

Easy creamy lather without the stick going soggy. Nice aroma and great to travel with - doesn’t mess up the inside of your wetpack.

MWF has been around for many, many years and with good reason. It has a very special scent and produces a thick, lubricating lather that gives a very fine shave. The refill is reasonably priced for such a high-quality product.

C & S 88 shave soap, spectacular
4/25/2017
I picked up a puck of C&S 88 shave soap because I liked a sample of the 88 fragrance I purchased and have always heard good things about the shave soap. It is a bit on the pricey side but the puck is very hard, triple milled so it will last forever bringing down the cost per shave. Loaded like any other hard soap and whipped up an incredible lather, very slick. If you are looking to treat yourself a little bit I would highly recommend it!

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.
