What’s the Difference Between Shaving Cream, Shaving Gel, and Shaving Soap?

Posted by Rocky Mountain Barber on


Shaving should be simple. Face it: few men have the time, technique or patience to draw their grooming routine out into an artform.

Most guys imagine they have other things to do, and manage to cram their shaving in-between other tasks, taking advantage of the time after a shower to clean up before getting dressed. And unless you’re being paid to look good, it can be difficult to see the logic of spending more than those few minutes on in front of a steamy mirror.

What is Aftershave and Why Do I Need it?

When it comes to shaving, everybody hurts – sometimes. No matter where you live, how old you are or how carefully you shave, the facts remain the same: apply a sharp blade to your face and you are going to do some damage now and then.

 Most of that damage, thankfully, isn’t of the blood-everywhere, screaming-for-help variety. But as Men’s Health warns, the act of shaving does more than sculpt your facial hair – it removes dead skin cells and grazes at the uppermost layer of epidermis, thereby scouring your skin of its natural oils, drying it out and reducing its defenses against the elements.

Shaving cream isn’t complicated. Sure, big brands might try to impress you with a long list of long-winded ingredients, but the best creams focus on just three simple goals: to desensitize the skin, swell the surface of your skin, and lubricate the follicles of your hair for easy cutting.
