“Shaving soap versus shaving cream…what’s the real difference? And the tube
cream versus the cream in a container…same company same cream?”
The answer to your question about the difference between traditional shaving soaps and traditional shaving creams can take several paths. Obviously, soaps are hard and creams are softer 🙂 . Soaps generally produce a slightly closer shave while creams generally give a little more “cushion.” Some say soaps work better in warm weather and creams better in cold, but I think the difference, if there is one, is very subtle. Creams usually have a stronger fragrance than soaps. But it all boils down to personal preference. I have both soaps and creams in my cabinet. And yes, cream in a tube and cream in a tub is the same product.
