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.

Musgo Real Shave Cream, Orange Amber, 3.4oz I have been a Musgo Real fan for about 7 years now. Product makes a dense, thick lather that has excellent lubrication as well as protecting the facial skin. The orange amber scent is wonderful, and when paired with the aftershave, makes for a lovely start to the day!!

Prep Cream, jar I used PREP several years ago, for shaving, skin irritations, sweat-galling, etcetera. It's fantastic on ALL counts! I'm so glad that I've been able to find it again! After waiting several weeks/months, PREP was finally available from WCS again!

Thank you, WCS!

Crown Shaving Co. Shave Cream Seriously excellent. I've done an extensive amount of research on which brand to use in the barbershop, and this came out on top every time. Good value, scent, ingredients. Excellent line.

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Executive Man First off, having owned a few different batches of Creed's Aventus, which this particular soap by Stirling patterns its scent after, I can definitely say the likeness is spot-on.



The soap itself: what can I say? It lathers easily and extremely well, with lots of silky-smooth glide, the soap stays nice and moist throughout the shave, and it's gentle and nourishing on my skin! All the things a great shave soap ought to do (and do well), Stirling's shave soaps nail right down.



The scent: while the slight pineapple notes of the Aventus-styled fragrance might not be some guys' cup of tea, it's a great counterpoint to the more stereotypical, ruggedly masculine scents I prefer during colder months. This one is definitely unique, refreshing, and perfect for warm weather - plus, even though I say it's a less traditionally-masculine scent, that's not to say it's markedly feminine.



Just more of a "dandy sophisticate" scent than a "lumberjack explorer" scent.

Fine Classic Shaving Soap, Green Vetiver Ok, finally got to break this out this week and after several shaves, this is a pretty impressive product for $12. Creamy lather almost appears like magic, that further develops on the face. Slick, nice cushion, clean tuat sikn feel after shaving that respnds to your next strp whether it is a cool rinse, or after shave treament. Scent of the bar is the green vetiver. Floral/citrus with a musk background. Strong in use, mild afterward. I find it appealing. Lady friend, ahem, loves it too. So, it has that going for it as well. This is going into my regular rotation. I have swithched over to hard soaps from various nicely performing croaps. This product is milled very nicely and will last quite a while (several months). For reference, my rotation is now, Institut Karite (cold months), Fine Green Vetiver (warm months), and for special occassions Czech & Speake No. 88. These three pucks will provide an entire year of shaves.

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.
