I usually use a soap/cream combo for my shaves, and VDH with proraso is my normal baseline. This morning I lightly loaded my brush with some evanest bay rum soap (ebay seller), and added a bit of Kiss My Face cool mint. KMF cool mint is one of my favorites. Very cool and tingly. Anyway, the lather exploded on me. I've never seen that amount of foam before. The more I use it, the more I like the KMF. I am going to have to buy some of the other scents to try them out. Amazing perfomance for any price, and it's not expensive. It could be the Arko of the creams, only without the lemon pledge scent.
