Every morning is a good morning with this Homemade Invigorating Men’s Shaving Soap! The bright citrus scent is the perfect way to start the day, and it makes for a great Father’s day or Christmas gift for any man in your life.

Try using it in a simple men’s shaving gift basket by pairing it with a shaving brush and razor with a hand towel.

Bentonite clay helps the razor glide smoothly over the skin to help prevent nicks and cuts. Jojoba oil works to nourish the skin while the essential oil blend provides many benefits including an invigorating effect, antiseptic properties, a fantastic scent and more. You will need a shaving brush to use the soap.

Awesome idea! Curious just how long you need to let it harden before use?

Where did you find the mug and shave brush pictured? I have looked everywhere for a similar mug with no luck or they're very expensive. TIA!

Amazon for the shave brush, it was fairly inexpensive. The mug I already owned, it was my parents from the 1970s, so maybe a second hand store might have similar?

How would this be used? Does the brush need to be wet and then rubbed against the surface of the soap to lather? I've never made soap before so sorry if I sound lost.

Yes, you wet the brush and swirl it around on the surface of the soap to lather.
