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.

Easy creamy lather without the stick going soggy. Nice aroma and great to travel with - doesn’t mess up the inside of your wetpack.

MWF has been around for many, many years and with good reason. It has a very special scent and produces a thick, lubricating lather that gives a very fine shave. The refill is reasonably priced for such a high-quality product.

C & S 88 shave soap, spectacular
4/25/2017
I picked up a puck of C&S 88 shave soap because I liked a sample of the 88 fragrance I purchased and have always heard good things about the shave soap. It is a bit on the pricey side but the puck is very hard, triple milled so it will last forever bringing down the cost per shave. Loaded like any other hard soap and whipped up an incredible lather, very slick. If you are looking to treat yourself a little bit I would highly recommend it!

Polar opposite of a hot shave!

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Cryogen, 4oz "The reviews and descriptions say it all. This soap is truly cryogenic! Menthol like I have never experienced. First soap to make my eyes water from the menthol. This is my second Chiseled Face soap, Midnight Stag was my first, another unique quality soap. I purchased the aftershave as well and it rivals Fine Snakebite. Chiseled has a faint scent whereas Snakebite has none. Cold water rinse is like a splash from an ice cold mountain spring. Good Stuff! Can't wait to try another in the line.

In response to the negative review: I dry all my soaps upside down on a hand towel for 24-48 hours then open for a few days. Never have any problem.

Update: Grows on you

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Midnight Stag "I first reviewed this soap 2 months ago. This is really an odd soap...in a good way. When I first opened the tub and smelled it I really thought I had made a mistake. As stated in my previous review, the quality was absolutely first rate, but the scent? Well, I have to tell you, the scent has really grown on me. I can't help but smile when I use it as it is so unique. If you are into trying something very different from the norm something far from floral or feminine give Midnight Stag a try. Shared with my brother, he too thoroughly enjoys it's unique qualities. I've raised my rating from 4 star to 5 star.
