Shaving Soap Education

When you think classic shaving, there's nothing more traditional than lathering up with a quality shaving soap. The simplicity is divine and whipping up a lather from a hard soap brings a sense of nostalgia to the morning shave.

Shaving Soaps traditionally come in a hard shaving puck that is similar in size to a hockey puck and similar in consistency to body soap. We carry a wide spectrum of shaving soaps including glycerin based, triple milled soaps, natural soaps, and tallow based soaps. We are proud to carry many small batch handcrafted artisan soaps as well.

Face Lather vs Bowl Lather

Most shaving soaps are made to be placed at the bottom of a shave bowl and to lather directly on the soap puck. The lather is developed in the bowl. A shaving soap stick can be used to face lather. Use the stick to spread some of the soap on your face, and then use the shaving brush to build the lather directly on your face.

How to use a Shaving Soap

  • Soak the shaving brush in warm water and squeeze or flick out the access water. The amount of water may also vary depending on water softness.
  • It is ideal to have a mug or small bowl to hold the soap puck in place.
  • You will lather directly on the surface of the soap in a circular motion until the lather forms.
  • Men will often continue that lather with the brush on the face where even more cream will form.

Expert Tip: Leave the soap container open to dry and be sure to pour out any water sitting at the base of the soap. This will preserve the life of your soap. Always remember to rinse your brush out very well until the water runs clean, squeezing and shaking out any excess water.

Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge Shaving Soap Refill, 90g Truly a superlative product. No matter the forum, this soap always gets rave reviews. So, after trying for myself I can aver it is one of the best. It will always have spot in the cabinet. It gets 10-out-of-10 in every category in my view.

Gold Dachs Rivivage Shaving Soap Refill, 2-pak Not cheap, but the refill acceptable. Does provide an outstanding creamy, lubricating lather. Close to Haslinger, but nicer smell.

Barrister & Mann Latha Shaving Soap, Lavanda The lavender scent is very pleasant and enjoyable. I found it perfect for night shaves. The soap is incredibly easy to load onto my brush (I use a boar hair brush), and it produces a very great lather. The slickness is good, and it offers a good bit of protection. I will probably buy Latha again when this runs out!!

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.
