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.

I have been looking for
I have been looking for a travel shaving soap and since I have tried this brand before I thought I would give it a try. Very pleased. Nice scent, not too strong.

Tabac shaving soap block
After more than six months of shaving with a double edged razor blade, I settled on the Tabac shaving soap block. The lather is thick and dense, and because of my sensitive skin and tough beard, I use it over a facial shaving lubricant. A great but not overpowering scent.

Better IMHO for sensitive skin than the Proraso "White"
I've been using Proraso "White" in my rotation because it's labeled for use with sensitive skin but it has menthol in it. Menthol while loved by many, and that's fine, is not a great choice for sensitive skin. Proraso "Red" is IMHO, much more "skin-friendly". When you elect to preform a daily 3 pass shave and an alum block, you need all the help you can get especially under the chin.



This croap whips up into a nice thick lather. It's also a great travel soap as it comes in its own bowl.

Sharp Dressed Indeed
Stirling soaps are at the top of my list from a quality/price standpoint. You will be hard pressed to find a slicker, better quality soap at this price. The pucks are a harder soap, so one container will last a very long time. The amount of cushion is amazing, and easily compares with a few of my other favorites, such as I Coloniali, and Tabac



Stirling soaps are very easy to lather with a wet brush. After about 30 seconds of swirling, I have enough soap loaded for a 3-pass shave.



Slickness is where they really shine in my opinion. The slickness is as good as any high priced soap out there that I have tried.

The scent is described as "Patterned after the famous Green Irish Tweed scent that was created for Cary Grant". I don't know about Green Irish Tweed. All I know is it's a nice scent that I can only describe as having a citrus base to it. Equally as important, the little woman likes the scent too. The scent strength is where I knock this down a point or two as it doesn't stay with you all day. I prefer a scent that lingers.



With regards to cushion, Stirling is hard to beat when it comes to the quality of their soap, with cushion being a huge factor for me. The thickness of the lather is as good as anything else I've got, making your razor glide across your whiskers without the worry of any post-shave razor burn.

I finish with their matching aftershave, which I'm sure will render this opinion flawed, but the post-shave feel is heavenly. My face feels soft and powdery smooth without feeling dry or soapy. Just right.

Fine Like Wine
Fine Platinum shave soap is a great soap. Lathers great, cushion is great, and the slickness is great. The price is right too. Very good soap with an even better fragrance.

A nice surprise
I received this D.R. Harris Marlborough stick as an extra in my order from WCS through a gift promotion. I'm use to the efficiency of the Palmolive sticks, so this D.R.Harris stick is a step up for me. While I don't consider the performance much better than Palmolive sticks (Great performing), I have to give the nod to D.R.Harris for the twist up container and scent. Does that justify the price difference? Probably not, but I'm going to have trouble saying "no" to more of these when this one is used up.
