Shaving Cream and Shaving Soaps Education

Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps are a pivotal part of the shaving experience. They add a layer of lubrication and protection to the skin that keep your skin healthy during the shaving process. Some of the shaving products have essential oils that go further and nourish the skin. All these aspects make the Shaving Creams and Shaving Soaps that we sell leaps and bounds better than any aerosol cream that can be bought.

Shaving Cream vs Shaving Soap

Both Shaving creams and shaving soaps are made to be lathered with a shaving brush. The main difference between them is how to lather the different products. Creams need to be lathered in a separate container than what they were stored in, like a shaving bowl. A small amount of cream goes a long way. If you lather directly in the container the cream comes in, you will end up using too much cream for each shave, and it will not last long. Shaving soaps are hard, and are made to lather directly on the surface of the soap puck. Shaving soap takes a little longer to lather up.

Creating a lather with Shaving Products

To create a lather, place the shaving cream, soap, or croap into a shaving bowl. Wet your brush with warm water, shake out most of the water, and begin working the product in a circular motion with the brush. A lather will begin to form. Use the brush to apply and work the lather onto your face. Brushless shaving creams do not lather and can be applied directly to your face.

Speick is a darn good shaving soap!
9/18/2017
Speick Men Active Shaving Soap, Bowl I've tried a lot of brands of both cream and soap over the years and this one is among the best! Speick is firmer than most creams and softer than most soaps. It's made from natural ingredients and includes their signature, specially harvested ingredient, valerian root, a plant used for centuries for its health giving properties. It has a unique scent...kinda like lemon but different. Speick has a unique, hard to describe feel to it that lets you know that you're putting a non-chemical, plant-based, natural soap onto your face that is doing good things for your skin. This one's a keeper!

#8 Silk Road Shaving Soap I had been intrigued by "wet shaving" since I saw my father and grandfather do it when I was younger. I shopped around the internet, compared sights to include reviews; West Coast Shaving edged out the other sites, so I decided to give them a try. I decided on #8 Silk Road Shaving Soap based on 2 factors; the ingredients and reviews. I am enjoying my lick and look forward to sampling other soaps and products. Thank you.

Muhle Aloe Vera Shaving Soap in Porcelain Bowl This has been the most pleasant soap I have used so far, even more than creams I have used. It does help the shave and skin if you do leave it on for a minute or two after you apply it, so just brush you teeth or something while you wait for it to soak in the skin. The porcelain container is a great bonus and is compact so it doesn't take up any more space than it needs to.

Q:How do you lather a cream and soap?
Answers

A:With the cream you will want to scope about a nickel size of the cream in to a bowl. Make sure the brush has enough water and start to use paint brush strokes or circular strokes to begin lathering. Eventually you will build a nice lather. For the soap, it is similar to a cream, but you just lather directly onto the soap. Make sure the brush has enough water and do a few strokes to lather the soap. This will get some soap in the brush and then you can finish by face lathering.

A:A more natural type of cream would be best for sensitive skin. Taylor of Old Bond Street makes a natural cream and Proraso has a Green Tea & Oat cream that we would recommend for people with sensitive skin.

Q:What is the difference between creams and soaps?
Answers
kkish57673
October 9, 2016 3:40 PM
A:Creams tend to be easier to make a lather and provide more protect because it makes a thicker lather. The soap tends to be a little harder to lather, but adds more glide for the razor and last a lot longer. It the end it comes down to a personal choice between the two. We recommend trying both and deciding which you prefer, or some people use both creams and soaps.
