Get both the Shaving Soap and Shaving Brush to start shaving the old-fashioned way. The brush is required to use Shaving Soap. Simply soak the brush in warm water for a minute, and start lathering the soap into a frothy cream. A great gift! Soak your shaving brush in hot water for about 30 seconds and squeeze out about half the water from the brush. Begin slowly swirling the brush against the surface of the soap in the tin can and work up to a faster speed. Within seconds, a lather will begin foaming. After about 30-45 seconds, a large amount of cream will be created, and the brush can transfer the cream to your face. Apply to face evenly. Repeat if more cream is desired. Experiment with different amounts of water to tailor your shave the way you like it. Pour any excess water from tin can and allowing to air dry before closing with lid is recommended for maximum soap life.
