Traditional Wet Shaving: The difference between shaving soaps and shaving creams

I’ve long been a fan of harder shaving soaps myself because I find them easier to lather, and they seem to last longer. I can usually just lather the soap right on the puck and use it from there, whereas lathering a shaving cream usually needs to be done in a separate shaving mug or bowl.

Just recently I discovered the Dusy Kabinett soap, and I’m blown away by how easily it lathers.
