My only experience with shaving cream so far has been Kiss My Face Lime; besides that, I've only used soaps. So when I tried to lather the Speick shaving cream I received in the mail earlier today, I got a bit of a surprise.
I soaked my brush and bowl in hot water, squeezed the water out of the brush, and wiped off the bowl. Then I grabbed my new tube of Speick, and (with a fair bit of effort) squeezed out a pea-sized piece of soap out of the tube. Yes, "piece" - it was more solid than liquid. I then added a teaspoon or so of water to my bowl with the soap, and spent ten minutes chasing the pea of soap around the bowl with my brush as I tried to lather it. I finally wised up and squished it against the bottom and finished up in another ten minutes.
Is this the typical shaving cream experience?
Is it supposed to be very viscous and difficult to squeeze it out of the tube? It looks chunky.
