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.

Great Shave Soap
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap Refill, Jermyn St. Quality is as good as any non-tallow soap gets, IMHO. Creates an excellent and protective lather. Lathers up easily but requires proper technique. Start with a brush that is just wet at the tips and load. Add water to the brush slowly. After about a minute, tons of lather.



Refreshing fragrance that doesn't linger.



Lasts forever. Shaving every day, 1 bar lasts me 1.5 years.

Great Soap!
Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Autumn Glory Having Sensitive skin, this soap is great for me. It stays foamy on the brush even after 3 passes and has a nice shave feel.



Would have been a super value if it was a refill puck version but hey, jar version is still good!



I ended up getting different scent about a week later.

Artisan Shaving Cream Sample Pack It can be hard to decide on a few soaps to use. I'm fairly new to wet shaving. It's easy to get caught up in the consumerism of this "hobby" we have. Every soap maker has tons of different soaps and we want to smell them all and use them all. Buying packs like this is better in the long run than buying full tubs of soap you may or may not like. That being said I really like almost every scent that is in this one.
