While on a recent binge on Fendrihan i picked up a bar of Musgo Real preshave soap (the sole purpose of that was to get over the $65 limit and get the free shipping). Well, I am still fairly new to the world of DE shaving and my bar of pre-shave soap arrived and I realized that I know nothing about how to use this product. I am just wondering how everyone uses this (and similar products)? Is it used mostly as a cleanser? Or is it meant to be applied and left on the beard before applying the cream/soap of the day so as to soften the beard?
