I can't for the life of me figure out how my face can feel softer and more moisturized after dragging a 4 shave old blade over my face for two passes than it did before I started! I bought MWF a couple of weeks ago and got about seven shaves in with pretty mediocre results. I was bowl lathering and just couldn't get the right consistency, no matter what I tried. I had honestly started to accept the fact that I might just be one of those people who MWF doesn't work for. I was trying to decide whether I should PIF it or how much I should ask for it on the BST.
Well, I finally stopped being so hardheaded and followed Mantic59's method for lathering yesterday and what do you know, it worked. (Seems to be a common theme with my shaving experience, once I stop being stubborn things go well). This was the first time I had ever face-lathered and I really enjoyed it. This was also the first time that I got anything close to a lather and my face felt awesome after my shave. I was a little skeptical, maybe I got lucky, so I tried it again today and had another fantastic shave. I definitely think that MWF will have a permanent place in my den. I'm really glad I didn't give up on this soap.
