So many YouTube clips; so many circular motion lathering images...even the well-known aficionados...

The boxes: are there going to be New Simpson boxes? Smile

I always thought the Simpson labelled boxes would be great to be able to purchase separately. With printed label indicating brush type or not? I rather like the hand-written label, personally.

Hello Mark, these are looking great.... Is the debate with regards to: How long do you soak the brush for or not prior to shave !!!

As for drying: Use of a Brush Stand or Not ???

I use circular motions when I Facelather for the first minute, then once the lather is there, I use paint strokes.

I think one needs to have instructions for bowl latheres and face latherers, because you need to imply a different technique when you face lather a cream or a soap than do when you bowl latherer.

IMHO of course Smile

I never bash or squeeze my brush hard against my skin, but make sure to use a solid hand, but I never use too much pressure, just like I never do with a razor.

Stand them on their base.
Only use a stand for natural handled brushes like brushes made from wood or natural horn. IMHO of course.

Excellent ! I truly like that new leaflet with the instructions , even when many dont follow them and make lather with circular strokes...Wink

These are the old instructions , if somebody was curious about them :

Biggrin Well done by Simpsons!

It doesn't say not to use circular motions. It specifically mentions HEAVY circular motions, not all circular motions. In other words, brush mashing. Like we don't know that. OK, so some folks haven't gotten the word yet, I know that also. To and fro motions, at least in my mind, can't be heavy, so all issues taken care of just by writing that. Lawyerese sort of.

Now how exactly would Simpsons politely tell someone they abused the brush by too heavy a hand!? I don't blame Simpsons for the wording. They did what they had to do. Obviously if the center of the brush is gone it wasn't a brushing motion. Problem solved.

I'm one of the few weirdos that does the paint brush strokes, but I will be honest, you have to swirl the brush to get it started either way.

I think there is a difference between painting strokes and "back and forth" lathering (I do the latter). Both are different than circular motions in my mind.

Can you explain how?

Tieste has a video where he does it, I believe.

Songwind, in my opinion it depends on how much pressure is on the brush and the extent to which the brush is swung. Back and forth is just that with more pressure and shorter strokes than a painting motion where the pressure is lighter and the strokes longer (like painting a wall).
