Well, 40 some years ago I used Williams in a Williams mug and built up the lather right in the mug then rinsed it out when done shaving. (But mostly I used canned foam -- anything other than Gillette I would consider exotic.) Soap was cheap enough I didn't worry about using it up too fast. Today, I use much better soaps and they cost a bunch more than Williams so I use a separate lathering bowl to prolong the life of the soap. In any case, the soaps I use come in containers (plain or fancy) which don't allow for lathering right on the puck.
