I have ordered my first shaving soap from http://www.robynsoaphouse.com for those in Aus*.
I can't wait for it to arrive, I am currently using shaving oil to which I add a drop of pure veg glycerin which makes it even more slick.
I want to use glycerin with the shaving soap...at which point would I add it in to get the most effective results.
Would I do it when loading the brush, start of lathering or mid-lathering or just about when it is done? Glycerin is very goopy so I feel that adding it at the beginning of the process may gunk up the brush but this is only my feeling at this stage.
*Robyn sells 140gram soaps for just $5 and I got her to send me an ingredients list too which is as follows:
Saponified Olive, Coconut, Palm & Castor oils, natural glycerine (forms in the soap when it is made), French Pink Clay & Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil.
