Thread: First Real Shaving Soap

  1. #1

    Default First Real Shaving Soap

    Ok gents I just recieved my first real shaving soap. Its Edwin Jagger Aloe. The kicker i didnt have a shaving brush. So i used a towel and whipped a foam as best as i could. Even using this method it was way better than what i used to do. Love the smell under that i used Alba Aloe an Mint. I ordered a Tweezerman as my first starter brush so excited to try that when it arrives....Now i maybe ready for a De Shave....Hmmmm....Still using my Bic Metal Razor...

    Check CVS, they sell a boar brush kit for under $10 that also includes a puck of soap.
    Also, some Targets sell a really good badger brush for $8.99.

    I've never heard of someone getting soap before they had a brush. Creams sure, but soap?

    I think you'll find it works a lot better with the tweezerman brush than with a towel.

    Nevertheless, welcome to B&B!

    All natural fiber brushes came off a living animal at some point, so it's kind of a crapshoot whether you get a stinker or not. I've had brushes that can be used right out of the box, and some that literally knocked my head away the first time I used it.

    I guess I know I can always use a towel if I go out of town and forget my brush. I would never have thought of that in a million years.

    Works pretty good with a wet wash cloth. Just swirl it on the puck then put on wet face it created a decent enough later...One question about the brush if it does stink how can i get rid of the stink? and how do i keep it sanitary..??

    Basically, dish soap and water, if it's really bad, you may want to soak it in that over night.

    To get out the initial musky funk try shampooing it a few times.

    Every time you build a lather you are essentially washing the brush with soap so keeping it sanitary is not an issue.

    About monthly I wash my brush with shampoo to get out the soap build up.

    Good luck!

    Just use it a few times, it'll go away.

    Rinse with warm water every time you use it, let it dry before sealing up in a closet or drawer, and hit it with shampoo or vinegar every few months and you'll be fine.
