Shaving Cream and Shaving Soaps Education

Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps are a pivotal part of the shaving experience. They add a layer of lubrication and protection to the skin that keep your skin healthy during the shaving process. Some of the shaving products have essential oils that go further and nourish the skin. All these aspects make the Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps that we sell leaps and bounds better than any aerosol cream that can be bought.

Shaving Cream vs Shaving Soap

Both Shaving creams and shaving soaps are made to be lathered with a shaving brush. The main difference between them is how to lather the different products. Creams need to be lathered in a separate container than what they were stored in, like a shaving bowl. A small amount of cream goes a long way. If you lather directly in the container the cream comes in, you will end up using too much cream for each shave, and it will not last long. Shaving soaps are hard, and are made to lather directly on the surface of the soap puck. Shaving soap takes a little longer to lather up.

Creating a lather with Shaving Products

To create a lather, place the shaving cream, soap, or croap into a shaving bowl. Wet your brush with warm water, shake out most of the water, and begin working the product in a circular motion with the brush. A lather will begin to form. Use the brush to apply and work the lather onto your face. Brushless shaving creams do not lather and can be applied directly to your face.

Great shaving soap.

Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Irish Coffee, 4oz. I first found out about this soap when browsing through WCS's soap samplers. I had never even thought about a coffee scented soap but I love coffee and occasionally will have an Irish coffee as well so I was definitely intrigued. I read all the reviews I could find and browsed the maker's homepage. Ingredirects include: coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba and glycerin. With all that and a great scent to boot, I skipped the sample and ordered a full size tub. A few swirls to load my silvertip in the tub, a few seconds in my lather mug with a little hot water and I quickly had a thick, luxurious lather - and way more of it than I needed for a three pass shave. Post shave impressions: my skin is smooth, well hydrated and not a hit of razor irritation. Definitely a soap I'll keep in my rotation and it's a nice change from my other scents.

Very good selection and I

Luxury Shaving Cream Sample Pack Very good selection and I like the idea of trying different brands. However, know that the value isn’t in the amount of cream you get, it’s in the different brands. In my opinion it’s not worth it. I only get 2 shaved out of each little sample. So 12-15 shaves for $25.

Great soap and lather.

RazoRock What the Puck Shaving Soap, Blue Barbershop I have been wetshaving for only 2 years, and have only used van der hagen because to be honest I don't really shop online. But after reading about this soap in the wicked_edge reddit I had to give it a try. I LOVE this soap, it lathers up perfect even with my semi-hard water. The scent is nice and not overwhelming plus I get a great glide from my blades in this lather. I know I haven't tried any of those $50 luxury artisan soaps and I don't really want to dive down that rabbit hole. This puck does everything I want and my face is smooth and soft when I am done shaving.



Great product and the only thing I can say that is bad [right now] is that it's out of stock :P

Q:How do you lather a cream and soap?
Answers

A:With the cream you will want to scope about a nickel size of the cream in to a bowl. Make sure the brush has enough water and start to use paint brush strokes or circular strokes to begin lathering. Eventually you will build a nice lather. For the soap, it is similar to a cream, but you just lather directly onto the soap. Make sure the brush has enough water and do a few strokes to lather the soap. This will get some soap in the brush and then you can finish by face lathering.

A:A more natural type of cream would be best for sensitive skin. Taylor of Old Bond Street makes a natural cream and Proraso has a Green Tea & Oat cream that we would recommend for people with sensitive skin.

Q:What is the difference between creams and soaps?
Answers

A:Creams tend to be easier to make a lather and provide more protect because it makes a thicker lather. The soap tends to be a little harder to lather, but adds more glide for the razor and last a lot longer. It the end it comes down to a personal choice between the two. We recommend trying both and deciding which you prefer, or some people use both creams and soaps.
