When I lather Proraso, I use a cheap $3 dollar cereal bowl and let the brush soak inside the bowl with plenty of hot water for a couple of minutes. Then I dump the water out and squirt the cream into the bottom of the bowl, then I give the brush a quick flick and start mixing, it usually produces some really good lather in a short amount of time. Good luck, Proraso has quickly become my favorite cream over the last couple of weeks.
