How to get the Best Shave with Henry Cavendish Luxury Lather Shave Soap?

1. Let soap soak in warm water in shaving bowl or mug for just a minute or two.
2. Steam the skin. A hot towel to the face is best. Stubble isn’t like the hair on your head, it can be flinty and tough, so you need to soften it up for close results. Leave the hot towel in place for about 2 minutes. If you are in a hurry in the mornings and you do take a shower, end the shower by turning up the heat and run hot water directly onto your face for a minute or two. And then go to step 3.
3. Lather up. A good lather is the second most important aspect of the whole shaving experience. You will also need a good wide shaving brush. I recomend a Badger hair shaving brush, which is soft. Some people prefer a stiffer brush like Boar.
Dip the shaving brush in a cup of hot water, shake off excess water, then rub the soap bar with the brush in a circular motion until you have a rich foamy lather. Apply liberally to your face, or to all of those areas that you are going to shave. It is also a lovely face massage.
Allow it to rest a few moments before you start to shave — this will further soften the beard.
4. Rub soap over your wet beard brushing vigorously coating the beard with soap, lather will start to build. Put a few more drops of warm water on the brush and continue to work up the lather on your beard until the lather is thick and covers the beard.
5. Check that blade. Make sure you have a new razor blade in your shaver or a good quality one that holds it’s edge for a number of shaves. I don’t recommend the disposable ones, unless you actually do dispose of it after every shave. (Not to mention the impact on our landfills.) For me they didn’t hold their edge like a double edge safety razor.
6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 for a second pass if necessary to give you a close, clean shave.

Shaving with Henry Cavendish is the closest thing to a traditional Barbershop shave in the comfort of your own home.
