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.

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!

Barrister & Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Cologne Russe I agree with the previous reviews in that the soap builds up a nice lather even with a boar bristle brush, but I gave it an " average " rating because it doesn't have much scent. I asked my wife if she liked it, but she said that she liked the sandalwood smell better. I couldn't notice much of a scent while applying the lather. Perhaps my " nose" wasn't functioning correctly.
