Heirloom Soapworks Shaving Soap – Magic Lather


OH MY GOD! The suds are out of this world! This is another soap from Heirloom Soapworks that I received on our recent soap swap. The smell is lovely lemongrass & it lingers... The soap is mild enough for the area I shave (under my arms) but the most wonderful thing about this soap is the incredible lather. Please see for yourself in the photo... just a few swirls with the shaving brush and the mug is almost full! The suds are not like the dense suds in my shaving or shampoo bar but light, fluffy and abundant! Awesome shaving soap. Thank you Becky!

Hi Jen! I'm glad you liked the shaving soap. Thanks for blogging about it, too -that was really sweet of you! : )

Very cool! I've never made a shaving soap before - or tried one for that matter... Sounds like a winner!

Thanks everyone, I must say that I use it without a brush, and the lather is totally different (and I think better!) I messed with my hubby's shaving brush yesterday, and I much prefer the lather that I get with my hands...now what?
Have you tried your shaving soap with a brush yet Ambra?
Jen, would you try it without the brush & let me know if you notice the difference?

Skin products for specific skin types have been available for a number of years now, and products like shaving soaps, shaving creams, and facial skin care which are formulated for men are slowly gaining popularity. However, before choosing what products to use on their faces, men should start with the basic issue, and that is to know specific skin type first.

With all due respect, I do not think this lather is suitable for shaving. Lather should be protective and this one is to airy to provide any cushion. This video will show you what you are missing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekaDfTtOhRc
