I shave using a shaving brush and soap mug.
I bought a nice Badger Bristle shaving brush. The brush is the most expensive item but its well worth the cost for a nice badger bristle brush that is made with real badger hair. The badger hair holds the lather well, feels nice on the skin, and rinses out well. I rinse the brush by holding it under the water to wash out all the soap, then give it a couple of shakes to get the water out, and it's amazing how dry the badger bristles are after the flips.
For safety razor, I use the three blade disposable type.
I have a green plastic shaving mug that won't break in my travel kit. Broke a ceramic one while on travel. Airlines are hard on luggage.
For soap, I've found that Dove bath bar soap produces and real nice lather and moisturizes the skin.
