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.

Barbershop Shaving Soap Sample Pack I love being able to sample lots of soaps since I’m so Noob! This allowed me to be able to find out what I like and what I don’t since noobs are generally unfamiliar with the usual scent profiles. Though I still haven’t found the vintage barbershop smell of my youth.

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Sharp Dressed Man This is my second tub of Sharp Dressed Man. It is my new favorite overall and my favorite Stirling scent, which means I go through it faster than others in my rotation which keep getting set aside for this one. It has great performance and a very pleasing scent. No doubt I'll have to buy more soon.

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Ghost Town Barber, 4oz Great product with a great smell. Being upfront though I am a little new to the 'nice shave' club. That being said it has a much better shave quality than the stuff that came with my beginners kit. Not to mention 1000% better smell. Highly recommended!

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Executive Man I own Creed Aventus and I'd say Stirling does a somewhat good job of mimicking the scent - mainly the pineapple notes. Although the total scent is a bit off, I think the scent on this soap is excellent, nonetheless. I would say I disagree with the others on the lathering capabilities. Compared to many other soaps I've purchased, I've found that it's hard to get a great lather with this soap. It's by no means horrible, but maybe a bit more tricky to get a good lather. I find that it is either hard to get a lather at all, or it quickly becomes too diluted when adding a bit of water to get a nice lather that "sticks" to the face. I've worked with it for a number of shaves and found a good sweet spot, but again, it took me awhile and overall the lather isn't quite as thick as many other soaps I've used. It does allow for a good, close shave though, so overall with the great scent I would recommend trying this one out.

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.
