Another poll! Polls are fun.
How does everyone like to lather Van der Hagen Select? I currently have it melted into a small bowl, so thus far I've been experimenting with face lathering and bowl lathering (in a separate bowl). Another option is to melt it into my large mug, and just lather on the soap (which is what I currently do with Col Conk).
My Rooney 3/1 Super is a little hard to load with soap sometimes because it's so soft; I almost think I should have bought a cheaper, stiffer brush. (Almost.)
