I've been trying to get my Prosaro (green) soap to work for me for the past three weeks, and no love.
I've been using Marco's method, which works perfectly with Cella, but with the Prosaro I either get lather that dries too quickly on my face, is too foamy and thin, or seems right but doesn't give me as good a shave as my cheap Palmolive stick.
After reading so many glowing reports of Prosaro I'm wondering if I'm doing it wrong?
I'm using a Vulfix 660 badger brush, 2011 Muhle R41 or Merkur 32C. I've also tried using hot and cold water.
I tried titrating the amount of water with bowl lathering, no joy. I've tried face lathering, no luck.
One thing I've noticed is that the lather feels the most 'slick' when it is the same consistency that cakes on my upper lip within 5 minutes.
What am I doing wrong?
