Hard Creams (Croaps)

If you've whipped up a lather on a puck of soap and a bowl of cream, you might find the best of both worlds with a croap. This hybrid between a soap and a cream is common with many of today's artisans.

Finding the exact definition of "croap" is the debate of blogs, chat rooms, and forums, for our purposes, a croap is a soft soap/hard cream that you start (proto-lather) in the container and finish in a bowl or mug (or even face/palm). Many of our artisan soap makers fall into the croap camp. You might love Chiseled Face, Al's Shaving Cream, or Taconic. They often whip up frothy mounds of lather in a quick hurry. No Frankenstein this - just a wonderful amalgam of soap and cream.

Unique and great smell
3/23/2017
I went to West Coast Shaving today to smell several soaps. One was Catie's Bubbles "Le Piment da la Vie", and it smelled great! However the sales rep opened "Connecticut Shade" and I became interested. We talked and then I smelled it again and I knew I had a new "favorite" soap. This smells like nothing else. I have smelled severe a hundred cologne's and many cremes and Soaps but this is truly unique. I though nothing would topple B&M Seville off the top of my rotation but this one did.



Of course it is a Catie's Bubbles product so it lathers well and shaves great.

Excellent soap

The soap has a great scent, lathers quite nicely. Has a good slickness to it. I have yet to find a blade that doesn't give me a good shave with this soap.

Awesome stuff!

Smells fantastic but not overpowering. Feels great on the skin and lathers easily. I've been using it for a couple weeks and seems like it will last a long time. If you don't want to break the bank buying a premium shave soap try this stuff out. 10/10 would purchase again.

New packaging! Same great scent.

Its been several years since I've used RazoRock's Zi Peppino shave soap. I was intrigued by the new packaging. Someone posted that they had reformulated it. I don't know - but it performed just as good as the one that came in the old packaging. Great scent - fantastic lather - BBS with my favorite DE blade. Supremely happy with this purchase and with WCS - fantastic customer service that I come to expect. Many thanks for taking the time to read my review. Peace and be well.

Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Kraken "Maybe it's just me, but the smell out of the can is very much like laundry detergent. It's actually a very clean smell that's better on the brush and face. I don't have any baby dolphins with which to compare the soap, but I can tell you that it lathers easily and gives a nice smooth shave. I'm hoping it grows on me.
