I see a lot of "what is a good brush for soaps", or "what is a good brush for creams". I also see that stiffer brushes are better with soaps and softer ones with creams.
I understand that everyone's experiences may, in fact, vary, but I have an extremely soft Merkur Silvertip that, in a few seconds of swirling, routinely pulls more soap from a hard puck than I ever need. I'm not even sure how using that on a cream would be any better, since once you have the product on the brush, lathering shouldn't be affected by where the product came from in the first place.
Is my experience varying wildly out of control, or is this whole soap/cream thing a myth?
