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.

Speick is a darn good shaving soap!

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!

1st time wet shaver

#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.
