Well yesterday I tried my puck of mwf for the first time using my Semogue 2000 boar bristle brush and face lathering. I knew that there was a slight learning curve with mwf so I was prepared for a struggle. I loaded my brush, which had been soaked for the duration of my shower, for about 20 seconds and then face lathered. The lather for my first pass went great providing a nice luxurious creamy foam and a heavenly cushion. I grabbed my brush to relather for pass two and NO LATHER TO BE FOUND! I reloaded a little more soap and repeated another wtg pass. After my post shave ritual, my daily shave was done and I was wearing a dfs. However, I was a little disheartened by the performance of mwf as it did not seem to provide much lather.
Today, I soaked my Simpson duke 2 AND my puck of mwf for the duration of the shower. I loaded up and took brush to face and gobs of beautiful lather erupted from the simpson. I finished my two pass daily routine with lather to spare. I guess the brush and soaking the puck made all the difference in the world. Just goes to show you that wet shaving is always a surprise. I would have thought that the Semogue boar would have been much better with the hard puck of mwf.
By the way, I love the scent of mwf! After lathering, I went to wipe some excess soap off of my lips and had a sudden urge to lick them instead! Yeah, I like it that much.
