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.

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Ghost Town Barber, 4oz I can't say enough about this soap. Great lather and it lathers up quick. One load on the brush gives me two applications. The shave is smooth and friction free. It leaves my face hydrated and the Ghost Town Barber scent is fresh and clean. My wife loves it.

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap Refill, Jermyn St. Good lather on this soap. Lots of cushion. Let it set on the beard for a few minutes, don't rush it and it does a fantastic job. Nice clean smell.

Proraso Shaving Cream Soap, Menthol and Eucalyptus, 150g Tub Having finally had enough with the 5-bladed cartridge shakedown, I switched to DE two-blade face scraping, and began my related product odyssey a couple years ago.



Won't EVER go back, even if the blades are now free.



Proraso green was my first shave soap in a bowl, and along with a cheap brush and the matching Proraso green pre-shave, I was off to a new and much more enjoyable shaving life.



I'm a menthol guy, and as a quality mentholated soap at a great price, this one is hard to beat. Will continue to use it, even as my wet shaving experience expands much further out.



Thanks Proraso!

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Bowl, Eton College I have a number of TOBS creams, and as with other cats on here, haven't been disappointed with any yet.



Eton College has a fresh, yet sophisticated scent. Really like it, and use it frequently.



Haven't indulged the matching aftershave yet...but I will.

Bigelow Shaving Cream This is a great basic shaving cream that's great on my skin. Very inexpensive and easy to get along with.



Not enough menthol for me, but hardly a serious negative. Feels like using classic history every time.



Plenty always on hand, especially at a great price.

Barrister & Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Cologne Russe Love the scent, like a cool, slightly floral and sweet old spice. Not overbearing and almost woodsy in a way, my lady always says i smell like the outdoors post shave. Speaking of shave, it is wonderfully smooth and easy to work a good lather up making the shave most enjoyable! Will be giving some more of their soaps a shot.

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.
