Lather - post up your favorite brush with a head of lather

First time trying my new Murphy & McNeil Bull and Bell series Bay Rum. This soap is excellent. It is a lot thirstier than other soaps I've used. It's even thirstier than my other M&M soap, but I think the Bull and Bell series is a different formula so that would make sense. So it took a lot more water than I was expecting to get the lather how I like it, but Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is *impossibly* slick. There was so much residual slickness after rinsing, I feel like I could have done a second pass with just water. Wasn't going to risk trying it, but I probably could have! :laugh:

Although I have limited experience with Murphy and McNeil soap I really like them. I might have to shell out a few more dollars. 🙂
 
Dang, I can't get a lather like you guys no matter if I'm using shaving cream (both in the bowl and in the squeeze tube), soaps, or shaving sticks, using a variety of brushes.

Wish I could help but I am no expert either...I watched and learned a lot from u-tubers...some I like and some not. Try them...
