Well, if you add just a few drops of glycerin you will have Uberlather, which for me is the best!I've been doing this since shave 3 without realizing I was "superlathering"
I have a puck of Walgreen's VDH in an Old Spice mug and a tube of Casswell-Massey eucalyptus that I was schmucked into buying. I fill my bowl up with hot water and fill the Old Spice mug up with hot water and let the brush sit in the bowl water while I take a shower. Once out, I drain bowl, drain mug, load up the brush with the VDH and then go to town with a little squirt of the cream in the bowl. It never takes me more than 30-45 secs to get enough lather for a three pass shave using your standard issue Burma-shave boar brush. And I have very hard well water.
I laughed out loud when I read there was an "Uberlather", but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I will be buying some glycerin to try this out. I've never even superlathered and I think the scent combinations could be quite strange.. I have some proraso cream and EJ buckthorn soap, which I will dub Pro-bucky when I marry them. I can see Mama Taylor in my future as well.
Only to cover. You can soak it if you like and discard the water before you charge the brush.A question on soaking the soap. Would you recommend filling a Proraso tub with water (only enough to cover) while showering? I'm new to this and want to be able to whip up a nice lather. So far I've only had so-so results with Williams soap, which I've been using for years in a mug with my cart blades.
