Just the 2nd time I have used this soap. Shaved today using an Omega synthetic brush. Unlike the other soaps I own, this soap seems to take forever to create a lather. Seems to be a thirsty soap. Once I woke up the lather and applied to the face, it has a great slick feel and spares me from shave knicks. Anyone else out there using Zaharoff? If so, what has been your experience. SOAP has a great scent and is worth the trouble in getting up a good lather.
