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.

Classic Performance

#1 Gatsby Shaving Soap Let soap bloom while I showered. Brush loaded almost instantly. I had overflowing rich lather in my bowl effortlessly. Great classic scent , not too strong , just right. Nice and slick and very protective. I rated my shave a BBS 10 ... I used a post shave splash but you don't even need it. Post shave is that good. Oh , just a note, I had so much lather left after 3 passes , I could have shaved my dog ...

Haslinger Schafmilch Shaving Soap with Sheep Milk and Lanolin As a wet shaver since the early 80's, I have tried many dozens of soaps and creams over the years. After 30+ years I have finally settled on about 5-6 each soaps and creams and did not any more. However I kept seeing this soap come up in discussions and thanks to my curiosity, added a puck in my cart when placing my last WCS order. For not a lot of money, I thought I would give it a try. Boy, am I glad I did. For under $10.00 this soap lathered beautifully, was very thick, quite slick, and provided a lovely post-shave feel. My face felt very smooth and moisturized after the shave. The fact that it has Tallow and Lanolin in it is icing on the cake. Its mild scent is fleeting and thus, allows one to use any chosen aftershave or cologne. This soap I am happy to say, has now joined my favorites. A real winner!

Shaving Soap: *** *** & Sandalwod

Ogallala Bay Rum & Sandalwood Shaving Soap Makes great lather. Sandalwood is secondary to the other ingredients, but while this is a disappointment the lather makes for a nice close shave.

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap in Bowl, Sandalwood I love the sandalwood sent, not too strong but, nice, subtle and classy. Lathers ok, but nothing to get excited about. The shave? Nothing offensive but, nothing to remember. I don't mind the soap generally but, it gave me a nasty rash on my chin and cheeks. Maybe I am allergic. to it. I am looking for something else to try. I have tried the "Art of Shaving" sandalwood and it makes me smell like a prostitute, no subtlety there, yuck!...No class.



I will give my beard a break and try Bond again to see if I get a reaction. Great scent.

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.
