What is the best shaving soap? Shaving oil?

Well, now that I have an amazing razor, what about shaving soap? I have a nice badger brush already, but have never really found a good shaving soap... Any recommendations?

Steve's a big fan of the good old fashioned William's Mug Soap

I also got him an olive oil pressed shaving bar at the one-of-a-kind show one time that was great but I'm sorry I can't remember the company.

I picked up a tube of Palmolive brush shaving soap similar to what my Dad used to use many many years ago. I am going to give it a try:

honestly newer gels are better than the best shaving soaps and creams.

Depends what you mean by better. Gels and modern creams have numbing agents in them to desensitize.

I went for a hot shave where they did not use any of these things, only a hot towel and some soap, and my skin felt much better the next couple of days.

The shave soap lasts forever... Save a fair bit of money by not buying the aerosol stuff...

I just use whatever bar happens to be by the sink when I shave my eye holes. I've tried the fancy soaps, but really what's the point unless you're delicate.

I have really sensitive skin and to be honest, the Body Shop's men's cream is amazing...you need a shaving brush for maximum lather but give it a try, been using it for over 5 years.

Shaving Oil > any shaving cream or soap, IMO. There are many brands, but RS is available at shoppers.

As someone with coarse manly hair yet very sensitive skin- i'm prone to razor burns...and always used to wait at least 3 days in between shaves.

Since using the shaving oil, i've yet to get razor burn once. I've yet to cut myself since...and can shave every day. I introduced this to my cousin who has it even worse then me - and now he swears by it.

Now, it's difficult to clean certain blades because the hair really sticks to the oil - but if you've got the right blade, it works great. One trick ive found is to rinse in soapy water when you're done.

I get crazy razor burn. I always have since I was 17. My facial hair is fairly course and goes all over the place, so finding the right product over the years has proven difficult.

Recently I started using The Real Shaving Co.'s products. They're certainly some of the better ones I've tried and cost-friendly. Zihr also make great products but they cost a fortune. I used their shaving oil and that worked a treat - but it's like $40 for a tiny little thing of it. I used to pick up their stuff at Winners/Home Sense, but they no longer seem to carry it.

I've still yet to land upon that one product that absolutely stops razor burn, but it's not as bad as it has been with just regular products.

I had my first straight-razor shave about a month back and the guy ruined my face for a week. Horrible experience!

I really hate my face when it comes to shaving! Gah!

I found an old tube of Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood Shaving creme in my suitcase that I had completely forgotten about. I think I once bought it as a gift for somebody. Anyway, it is pretty good and the smell of it is very subtle which I like.

I have seen the shaving oils out there and bought one to try a long time ago. The ingredients said it was mostly grape seed oil. I have since shaved with a tiny bit of pure grape seed oil and that works well. I am sure you could probably also use some of the other exotic oils like walnut or jojoba and make your own blend that is 100 % natural. When I am finished the T&H I am going to experiment. As long as the oils work and I don't smell like a big salad I'll be happy.
