And boy was it nice.
So far I've only bowl lathered using either soap or cream but today I decided to see how it felt. Loaded up some AoS lavender real well and began building a lather on my face. Right away I could tell it was a lot easier to gauge the slickness/cushion of the lather and water appropriately. Added a few drops of water to my brush here and there and was amazed at the quality of lather I achieved.
I normally lather in my scuttle and get a pretty darn good lather, but today's face lather was probably my best lather/shave with a Red IP and my 60's SS. My 1.5 DB Scuttle may be a bit large for face lathering but it still kept my lather nice and toasty as usual (maybe due to my large, 24mm, brush).
I think I'm a convert
