shaving cream vs shaving soap


Shaving Cream or Shaving Soap – Which one is better
Shaving cream, shaving soap, shaving gel all are used for the purpose of softening the hairs while protecting the skin from the razor blade. Most commonly used are shaving cream and shaving soap. These two shaving items provide a protective layer of cushion and lubrication. However, the question is which one is better and which you should You use. Here we will discuss both of these in detail before giving a final verdict.

Shaving Soap
Shaving soaps are available in an extensive variety. They come in triple milled, hard soaps, semi-hard soaps and even croaps (soap + cream). This may seem a daunting task to know which product you should use considering the fact that you have to try them all before deciding your preference. If you are looking for a cost-effective option, you should avoid triple milled soaps, besides triple milled being able to produce a denser lather. It takes long with shaving soaps to produce lather. Even if you are experienced enough, you will have to spend time producing the desired amount of lather. Shaving soaps also do not have the same scent That shaving creams have.

Shaving Creams
When it comes to shaving creams, they are also available in a wide variety. Two of the most common are canned shaving cream, jared shaving cream and tube shaving cream. Whichever you choose, you should make sure that it does not have any harmful ingredients in it. Canned shaving creams often have harmful ingredients in it which can be damaging to the skin. These shaving creams can make the skin rough and may cause irritation as well. However, tube and jar shaving creams are different and they are able to produce the lather in no time. It also does not require any experience to do so. Just pull out the cream on your palm and rub on the skin to produce the lather. Shaving creams are also scented to give your skin a fresh feel for whole day long. With the use of shaving creams, there remains very less risk of getting irritation from a razor blade.

And the Winner is...
Both shaving creams and shaving soaps have their pros and cons which cannot be neglected. It really comes down to personal choice and preference. There can be some brands which can be considered luxurious as compared to others but the bigger picture says, both these products protect the skin during the shave. Both these products make it easier to shave without causing the skin to get damaged or get razor burn.
Whichever product you choose, it would give you more pleasure and ease as compared to any canned shaving cream because both of these products do not have any harmful ingredients. Some people may still argue in the favor of their preferred product which is not wrong at all. Let us know which product you prefer and the reason of your preference as well. We would love to know about it.

Does this mean or not mean definitively that shaving creams will not give you far less to no irritation and burns than shaving, specifically artisianal shaving soaps because of the lather density . I have seen That the Castle Forbes I used did not give me the Knicks , burns and irritations that the Slick shave soap gave me . No shave oils seemed necessary . Lather type seems to be the culprit .
