Shaving Soap Education

When you think classic shaving, there's nothing more traditional than lathering up with a quality shaving soap. The simplicity is divine and whipping up a lather from a hard soap brings a sense of nostalgia to the morning shave.

Shaving Soaps traditionally come in a hard shaving puck that is similar in size to a hockey puck and similar in consistency to body soap. We carry a wide spectrum of shaving soaps including glycerin based, triple milled soaps, natural soaps, and tallow based soaps. We are proud to carry many small batch handcrafted artisan soaps as well.

Face Lather vs Bowl Lather

Most shaving soaps are made to be placed at the bottom of a shave bowl and to lather directly on the soap puck. The lather is developed in the bowl. A shaving soap stick can be used to face lather. Use the stick to spread some of the soap on your face, and then use the shaving brush to build the lather directly on your face.

How to use a Shaving Soap

  • Soak the shaving brush in warm water and squeeze or flick out the access water. The amount of water may also vary depending on water softness.
  • It is ideal to have a mug or small bowl to hold the soap puck in place.
  • You will lather directly on the surface of the soap in a circular motion until the lather forms.
  • Men will often continue that lather with the brush on the face where even more cream will form.

Expert Tip: Leave the soap container open to dry and be sure to pour out any water sitting at the base of the soap. This will preserve the life of your soap. Always remember to rinse your brush out very well until the water runs clean, squeezing and shaking out any excess water.

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.

Reef Point Shaving Soap, Dragon's Blood This soap amazes at first use. The scent is wonderful and lathers very easy. The thick creamy lather is slick with excellent cushion. Had bowl lather left after 3 passes, Plus clean ups. great post shave feel. Do bloom it for a few minutes before use.

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.

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Sherlock, 4oz Purchased this shave soap on a whim. I thought the name was interesting. To my surprise, I found the scent very appealing and it lathers quite well. Slick lather, that provides a very close shave, even if it has been a 2 or 3 days between shaving. It is one of my go-to soaps although I admit that I'm a big fan of Mystic Water soap - a small soap-maker out of Maryland.
