    Lather problems with artisan soaps

    Was going to say the exact same. I feel like actual badger hair soaks up a lot of the water you’d need for these soaps to really take off when lathering. I have one badger and noticed right away how much water I continually had to add as opposed to a synthetic.

    Favorite Fall Soaps

    Stirling Gatlinburg just about checks every box off for me as far as Fall scents go. A very woodsy, smoky, masculine outdoorsy scent. The cedarwood, sage, and Cade notes really stand out to me. Already a huge fan of it.

I’ve been prone to some minor brush burn if I have to work the lather in more than I’d like, so this I hope...

    Anyone here prefer to just use their face to lather?

    Lately been starting to face lather more and more. I thought I could judge the lather more in the bowl, but with the acquisition of two new brushes (Yaqi Sagrada & Maggard Synthetic), it’s become easier to judge the slickness and water content while on my face. For whatever reason trying to...
