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.

Exactly What You Would Expect
2/27/2017
First of all, the scent is AMAZING, it reminds me of black cherry yogurt. As a newer wet shaver, who doesn't even have a year of wet shaving under his belt, this soap is definitely up to my standards. It has a great scent, lather, slickness, and keeps your skin hydrated after the shave. There really isn't much I have to argue against this, even though I'm relatively inexperienced, I know that my shaving experience was completely satisfying with this product. I've had a fair share of shaving soaps, since I usually order the sample packs and this was absolutely in my top 3 choices. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves a fruity scent and wants a shaving soap that performs great.

Smells amazing and my wife

Smells amazing and my wife loves it as well . Nice slickness for a close shave and skin protection. Had to work a little for a decent lather, but once lathered up it held up well.

This is the first premium soap I've used. After years of using a cheap supermarket brand. The lather actually looks like shaving cream, and it was as comfortable a shave as I've ever had.

Good product

Make sure to only lather portions of your face as it will disappear kinda quick. Other than that it does what it needs to.

Great value

This product does all as advertised. This is a no frills product but does a great job for price. If using this don't forget the proraso menthol and eucalyptus pre-shave... Now there's a five star product!

This is an excellent shaving croap! The lather provides great glide and cushion allowing for a very close, smooth shave. The sandalwood scent is quiet but lingers well after the shave.

Nailed it!

This soap really does smell exactly like a margarita. Great glide and cushion that provided me with a close shave. The amount of menthol is perfect. This definitely earned a spot in my rotation. I recommend getting the aftershave as well. I have tried several other lime soaps that smell like a household cleaner and this is not one of those.

There's a reason why prosaso

There's a reason why prosaso is been around for a while there lather has a good cushion and very slick for a great shave. The menthol eucalyptus scent gives you a fresh clean feel on your skin pair it with the proraso green after shave for an amazing shave
