Super- and Uber-latherers, where are you?

I have so many soaps/cremes that I'll never use up, so why not. I love lavender, so I add a touch of Trufitt & Hill or QCS lavender to IK or other non-lavender, lightly scented soaps.

IK with Trufitt & Hill Lavender is the best. QCS Lavender added to Speick or MWF is wonderful as well.


I currently rotate Tabac, MWF, and Cella. This includes a 50/50 blend of Tabac and MWF that I milled and packed in a soap tub. When I use Tabac and/or MWF, I almost always spike it with a dab of Peterman's 1903 smeared in the bottom of my lathering bowl. But I do it more because I like the way 1903 smells than for the sake of whatever enhancement it otherwise contributes to the resulting lather.

Some interesting ideas in here, thank you. I'm glad people still do it. I've got a little bottle of glycerine right on the sink.

This morning was VDH Luxury and CO Bigelow, served up with the new B&B Essentials brush. Great brush, great lather, awesome shave!
My latest über-discovery is C&E West Indian Limes soap + Erasmic cream. Works beautifully with the both the old and the current, reformulated Erasmic.
This morning's überlather was VDH Deluxe, 1/2 pump of KMF key lime, and four drops of glycerin, with a little more water than usual.

Lovely. Just lovely.
I used Mike's orange , and lime samples along with the new proraso blue the other day. I pressed each sample on seperate sides of my lather mug and used a little cream. The lather smelled really nice, I dont mix products a lot but I really liked this.
When traveling (with a limited soap selection) I would put some of one type of stick on my beard then load the brush with puck soap.

This was more out of boredom than experimentation :001_smile
I usually superlather with soap and cream of the same kind, namely Speick soap with Speick cream, and Palmolive soap with Palmolive cream. I have the feeling that adding a bit of cream to the mostly soap lather makes it a bit slicker and more stable.
I haven't tried other combos yet, but I hear that Speick soap and MWF are supposed to make a fine combo.
Williams with Arko cream is my favorite. I think the überlather movement came to a screeching halt when astroglide was introduced into the mix. If that thread isn't in B&B's greatest hits then I don't know what could be.
I face lather and start with a stick on my beard and load my brush from a puck. I love tabac/MWF killer combo. La toja / DRH Arlington is nice also
