I’m often asked if I prefer shaving soaps or shaving creams. I like both actually. All things being equal, I can get good lather out of either. In two cases–DR Harris Arlington and Crabtree & Evelyn Sienna–I’ve tried both the cream and the soap and preferred the soap, but I think it was because the scent was more pronounced in the soap (which is weird because I’ve generally found the creams have stronger scents than soaps). I also find myself gravitating towards soaps in the summer and creams in the winter.
Do you have a preference? What is your all-time favorite cream or soap?
