DOES SHAVING WITH SOAP TAKE LONGER?
No. If you want a shave that is going to leave your skin feeling baby smooth without the usual redness and irritation, the best way to achieve it, is by shaving with a soap and brush, there, we said it!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SHAVING WITH AN ARTISAN QUALITY MADE SOAP?
Shaving with quality organic soap provides a thick lather that offers up more cushion and a smoother, gliding shave which provides a unique after-feel and ultimately healthier, softer skin. It is also more gentle for sensitive skin. Soap shaving takes a little getting used to but it the advantages vastly outweigh this process.
CAN I USE SHAVING SOAP WITHOUT A BRUSH?
The short answer is yes, however… a brush helps create a thicker lather than you would achieve by using your hands to spread it out. A brush also helps provide a closer shave and softly exfoliates your skin to help remove dry skin cells.
