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.

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.

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.
