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.

Barrister & Mann Latha Shaving Soap, Limon On days when I feel like a lemon scented shave, I'll be reaching for this product. The smell is aptly described in the reviews. It is dominatingly lemon with more faint note of roses. Not only is it a great scent, it is a great performing product.



Appreciate the service West Coast Shaving provides. Visiting the store in person someday is on the bucket-list.

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Sharp Dressed Man Easy to lather; has a good cushion; and it's slick. One thing that bothered me was its initial smell. It smelled a bit like a dead animal. I tried leaving the lid open overnight and that seemed to have gotten rid of the smell. Otherwise, a good soap!

Good Scent - Not Overpowering

RazoRock The Dead Sea Shaving Soap The quality is awesome, as I have come to expect from this manufacturer. Scent is awesome, with hints of incense and (yes) cannabis. However the cannabis is *very* subtle. I was worried at first that I would smell like a stoner, and that's not it at all. I get an excellent shave with this soap, and the scent is mostly for my own enjoyment. An hour after the shave it's still there, but very faint.

Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Waterlyptus, 4oz. This may be my absolute favorite scent of all time. Smells just like watermelon with a touch of eucalyptus and peppermint. Katie is bubbles always has fantastic soaps and scents for the money. I have several of their products, but this one is absolutely my favorite!

L.A. Shaving Soap Santa Monica Bay Rum Shaving Soap This product lathers easily and helps to make for a 5 star shave. The scent is also very good which has caused me to order another variation of this soap!

Barrister & Mann Glissant Shaving Soap, Rhapsody This soap provides the same great shave as I've come to expect from B&M. Great lather, super slippery, great cushion and face feel. I only gave four stars because the scent is awful.
