How to Use Shaving Soaps and Creams

Begin by softening facial hair with warm water to prepare your skin. Soak a shaving brush in warm water, then, for soap, swirl it in a shaving bowl or mug to load the brush. 

For cream, apply directly onto the brush before lathering in the bowl or mug. Whip up a rich lather with vigorous circular motions. Apply the thick lather onto your face, ensuring a lubricated shave. 

After shaving, following the grain of your hair, rinse with cold water and apply an after shave product. Clean your shaving tools diligently. This routine not only improves the shave quality but also promotes skin health by reducing irritation.

FAQs

Is it better to shave with soap or shaving cream?

When it comes to shaving, whether you should use soap or shaving cream really depends on your skin type, shaving preferences, and what you're looking for in terms of the shaving experience.

Shaving creams are specifically designed to provide a rich, moisturizing barrier between your skin and the razor. They're great for those with sensitive skin because they can help reduce irritation and razor burn. 

Using soap is a more traditional method and can work well. These soaps are formulated to create a thick, creamy lather that can protect your skin during the shave.

Ultimately, the choice between soap and cream comes down to your personal preferences, skin sensitivity, and the experience you want during your shave.

Which brands offer the best shaving soaps?

Several brands are renowned for their high-quality shaving soaps. Here are some well-regarded brands in the shaving soap category:

  1. Proraso: Proraso offers a range of shaving soaps known for their rich lather and skin-friendly ingredients. They cater to various skin types and preferences.
  2. Taylor of Old Bond Street: Taylor of Old Bond Street is famous for its traditional English shaving soaps with luxurious scents and exceptional performance.
  3. Edwin Jagger: Edwin Jagger is recognized for its premium shaving soaps that provide a smooth and comfortable shave. They are a popular choice among wet shaving enthusiasts.
  4. Cella: Cella is known for its classic Italian shaving soaps with a rich almond scent. They have a loyal following among those who appreciate traditional shaving products.

These brands have earned a reputation for providing the best shaving soap options to meet a variety of shaving preferences and skin types.

How do I choose the best shaving soap for my skin?

Choosing the best shaving soaps for your skin involves considering your skin type, preferences, and any specific concerns. 

Here are some tips:

  1. Skin Type: If you have sensitive skin, look for shaving soaps with natural ingredients and minimal fragrances to reduce the risk of irritation. Those with oily skin may benefit from shaving soaps that offer a matte finish. Dry skin may benefit from moisturizing and hydrating shaving soaps.
  2. Ingredients: Check the ingredient list for any potential allergens or irritants. Natural and organic ingredients can be gentler on the skin.
  3. Fragrance: Consider the fragrance of the shaving soap. Some people prefer mild scents, while others enjoy more robust fragrances. Choose one that appeals to you.
  4. Lathering Method: Decide if you want to use a shaving brush to create lather from a soap puck or prefer the convenience of a cream or pre-made foam.
  5. Brand Reputation: Research the reputation of the brand and read reviews to ensure the shaving soap has a good track record for performance and quality.

Ultimately, the best shaving soaps for your skin will provide a comfortable and effective shave while aligning with your personal preferences and skin needs.
