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.

Hard Creams (Croaps) Reviews
Very Good Shave Soap
Dr. Jon's Natural Vegan Shaving Soap, Flowers in the Dark Vol. 2 Nice scent, you can smell the lavender, its a scent slightly on the "darker" side, but scent projection is not as strong as I would like it to be. I would not call it the greatest scent out there either. But it is a nice scent. The soap has a nice sheen when lathered on the face and performs well.
Autumn glory
Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Autumn Glory This soap like all Stirling soaps provides an excellent shave both in volume of lather and slickness the scent is a little hard to discribe. I’ve used other autumn themed soaps and the scent is like no other soap I’ve tried. Excellent performer shave wise though !
Good shaving soap
Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Le Piment de la Vie, 4oz. Great soap, clean fresh shave. Smells great too and the mrs will be happy.
Love this scent
Barrister & Mann Latha Shaving Soap, Taiga I want this scent in everything. Soap, AS, lotion, whatever I can get. It is that good. Soap is great with solid cushion and glide.
Greeat Lather, smooth shave!
Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Coniferous This is everything I want in a shave soap. The scent is not overbearing - quite nice. The lather is great and doesn't take a long time to load. The shave is smooth and comfortable. I would recommend this one!
Surprisingly good
Dr. Jon's Natural Vegan Shaving Soap, Classic Got this as part of a "Barbershop" soap sample pack from WC. I'd previously tried other Dr. Jon's via samples and wasn't impressed. This one is little thirstier than some soaps and requires a little more effort to lather (bowl) but worth it. Produces a slick cushion that protects the skin. My razor went smoothly across my face (3 passes). Nice feel when done.
Great for that job interview, or a night on the town
Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Executive Man Love this soap. My first soap from Stirling, and I am impressed. Great scent, and great lather.
Sterling Shave Soap
Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Barbershop I have purchased and used several of the Sterling soap scents and found them to be excellent performers and pleasing to my nose. I highly recommend them to everyone.
