I am traditionally a shaving cream guy and have not ventured too far into shaving soaps over the years beyond the freebee pucks you sometimes get when you order something else. After reading so much about it, I decided to take the plunge and buy a puck of MWF. I tried to build a lather in my shaving bowl, but that did not go so well. So, I changed over to a face lathering with better results. While I did not achieve the thick creamy lather I am use to getting with CF's or Penhologan's creams, the overall coverage was good. Then came the moment of truth when the metal met the meat... and wow this stuff is great! I never felt the blade on my skin once the entire shave and my skin was BBS. I could also tell the lanolin was doing its thing because once dried, my skin felt like I just applied a moisturizer or AS balm to it.
All I can say is good stuff!
