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.

Barrister & Mann Latha Shaving Soap, Limon On days when I feel like a lemon scented shave, I'll be reaching for this product. The smell is aptly described in the reviews. It is dominatingly lemon with more faint note of roses. Not only is it a great scent, it is a great performing product.



Appreciate the service West Coast Shaving provides. Visiting the store in person someday is on the bucket-list.

A good soap

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Sharp Dressed Man Easy to lather; has a good cushion; and it's slick. One thing that bothered me was its initial smell. It smelled a bit like a dead animal. I tried leaving the lid open overnight and that seemed to have gotten rid of the smell. Otherwise, a good soap!

Good Scent - Not Overpowering

RazoRock The Dead Sea Shaving Soap The quality is awesome, as I have come to expect from this manufacturer. Scent is awesome, with hints of incense and (yes) cannabis. However the cannabis is *very* subtle. I was worried at first that I would smell like a stoner, and that's not it at all. I get an excellent shave with this soap, and the scent is mostly for my own enjoyment. An hour after the shave it's still there, but very faint.

My favorite soap at a great price

West Coast Shaving, Shaving Soap, Sweet Almond Now that I've been wet shaving for a couple years and have sampled a variety of soaps I can say that this is my absolute favorite. First of all, it's vegan, it smells great (like Cella but a little stronger) it comes in a large tin perfect for using with my Omega brush and it makes a thick rich and very slick lather. I've used Taylor of Old Bond St., Cella and many other popular soaps. This is my hands down favorite. It lasts for ages, smells great, is super slick and quickly whips up a great lather that's good for 2-3 passes. The price is great too.

Katie is bubbles always has fantastic soaps and scents for the money. I have several of their products, but this one is absolutely my favorite!
