Based on a lot of these posts, I tried to lather my MW in a mug this morning. I got the disappearing effect JCinPA was talking about in his review. That is the first time it has happened to me. I get great lather when I load a dry brush, add a little water to the tips, re-lather on the puck, add water as needed, then face lather. It sounds to me like this soap is best built via face lathering.
I will also say that I don't get peaks in the pictures, but I do get a dense lather. Plus, even with today's thin lather, it still provided excellent lubrication for my shave (as was the case in the reviews). It is very odd that the ranges of lather are this extensive. I'm wondering if there's something to the batch theory.
