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.

I was not prepared and I feel like I just dry iced my face

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Cryogen, 4oz I like menthol in my shaving soaps. In fact, I tend to like a LOT of menthol in my shave soaps, so when I saw Cryogen, it was a no-brainer. Ultra mentholated, I'm all in.

I gave the tub a good whiff when I got it and got my eyes to sting a little. That was nothing compared to the first shave. My eyes stung, my face felt like it had been packed in dry ice and it became kind of hard to breathe. This stuff was so strong, I almost had to switch to a different soap mid shave. ALMOST (Full disclosure: I'm a little bit of a glutton for punishment). All in all, this stuff gives a great lather, is super slick, with a ton of cushion and seems to go a long way. On an additional plus side, with all the menthol, I don't get ANY irritation or nicks. I do love this soap, and will be getting it again, that being said, this is about as pure of a summer soap as you can get, and I'm not sure I would dare to use in a cold climate, but who knows. I like to take risks.

The sample pack of shaving

West Coast Shaving Sample Pack The sample pack of shaving soap included with my last order was quite remarkable. Hewing off small chunks of soap from the sample and whipping it into lather produced mounds of soft, frothy lather which gave me probably the closest and smoothest shaves I can remember. I'll have to order some to replace the samples once I have used them up. This is good stuff. Thank you.

Great soap. Where's the lavender scent?

Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Sunset Great shave soap from Catie's Bubbles. It loads quickly and produces a rich dense lather. However, the scent let me down. I was expecting a deep lavender scent since they boast of having a blend of 5 lavenders. My nose doesn't pick up any lavender at all. Might be just my sniffer. If you're looking for a lavender fragrance, sniff this soap (if possible) before you buy. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with Catie's Bubbles.

Geo F Trumper Extract of Limes Shaving Cream Bowl This is the best shaving cream I have tried. It provides a clean smooth shave. The fragrance is mild and refreshing. It appears pricey but the bowl will last a long time.

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.
