Use this dark brown, handmade, original flair-top cobra handle ceramic mug to hold shaving soap or to pre-whip up shaving cream. Designed by Em to be used with the glycerin rounds. Called cobra mug because the handle is reminiscent of a cobra's snake head with large thumb rest. Available with or without Em's glycerin shaving round. Comes in gift box.

3 oz. regular size glycerin shaving or cleansing round in your choice of unscented or with our Em's essential oil blend is great for use with a shaving brush, and is the refill size for our shaving sets (or use your own container). 2 3/4" approx. diameter. Enriched with extra glycerin. Can be used for a gentle face or body cleansing too! No artificial colors or fragrance for sensitive skin. What could be more convenient.

Why does Em's promote glycerin soap? Our glycerin soap is made using only the finest ingredients and essential oils for a masculine scent and beneficial for skin care. It lathers well and provides a nice shave while rinsing clean. We have had a lot of positive comments on this soap formulated for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Not only is it a good shaving soap, you can bathe and shower with it too!

To use a shaving brush: Moisten area to be shaved with warm water to soften hairs, thoroughly wet brush, shake off some excess water if necessary, rotate and lather the bristle tips over shaving soap (like stirring a cup of coffee, for example) to coat with top part of the brush head with lather, then apply in a back and forth and slightly circular motion to the shaving area - the lather is further created on your face.

It's all about the water - too much and you get bubble water, too little and you get dry film and insufficient lather. Generally speaking, it is not a thick interfering foam like what is found in store brand shaving canisters, but rather a layer that allows the razor to slide along the face without too much foam to get in the way of a close shave. You can control the amount of lather created by how much water remains in the brush, how much soap or cream is applied to the bristles and the scrubbing motion used on the shaving area. Experiment and you will find what works best for you. Soap or Cream? More info... Also visit the FAQ for more information.
