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.

Excellent DRHarris Soap

D.R. Harris Sandalwood Bowl Refill DR Harris soaps are some of my favorites, both in quality and in being long-lasting. This Sandalwood is no exception, with rich, smooth, cushioning lather. The scent is subtle and pleasant. Not being strongly scented, it does not compete with your aftershave or cologne, but can be found faintly in the background.

Ogallala Bay Rum, Limes & Peppercorns Shaving Soap Bought this for the very low price. Not as easily lathered or slick as some others i’ve tried, but still does a nice job. Smell is good; stong and spicy. More pepper than lime.

Barrister & Mann Reserve Shaving Soap, Lavender I read positive reviews over at wicked_edge, was not disappointed. The scent is not pure lavender but an almost cologne of lavender if that makes sense. Love it.
