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.

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!

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.

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.
