Hard Creams (Croaps)

If you've whipped up a lather on a puck of soap and a bowl of cream, you might find the best of both worlds with a croap. This hybrid between a soap and a cream is common with many of today's artisans.

Finding the exact definition of "croap" is the debate of blogs, chat rooms, and forums, for our purposes, a croap is a soft soap/hard cream that you start (proto-lather) in the container and finish in a bowl or mug (or even face/palm). Many of our artisan soap makers fall into the croap camp. You might love Chiseled Face, Al's Shaving Cream, or Taconic. They often whip up frothy mounds of lather in a quick hurry. No Frankenstein this - just a wonderful amalgam of soap and cream.

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.

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.

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Sherlock, 4oz I was ambivalent about the scent when I bought it but was intrigued by the reviews. Once I tried it I loved it. The scent really grows on you. This soap explodes with lather. This scent and chiseled face brand is my #1 favorite.

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Cryogen, 4oz I really enjoy the icy tingle of menthol in shaving creams, soaps, and after shaves. Cryogen defiantly delivers that same icy cool I like, however, I found it does not lather up or provide as much cushion compared to other soaps

Ice cold for hot summer

Chiseled Face Shaving Soap, Cryogen, 4oz I live in South Florida where the summers (and really the whole year) is blazing hot. This soap is ice cold and gives a nice chill to the face without a burn. The menthol is so potent, it clears the nostrils and dilates the sinuses without burning my eyes. The foam is slick and voluminous like snow. My blade glides on it like ice. I have zero irritation using this soap. I am a huge fan and will definitely be buying it again. Thank you Chiseled Face and West Coast Shave Company

Proraso Shaving Cream Soap, Green Tea & Oat, 150g Tub A great soap with a great scent and lather. Small container is a bother for lathering but but otherwise a fantastic overall soap and great value.
