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.

Shaving Soaps Reviews
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.
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.
A scent ARCHER would respect
