Green Mountain Soap Lather Video



The lather is still thinner than I'd like but this was better than my earlier attempts. I believe that I need to grate the puck in order to load it well enough in my very hard water. Keep in mind that GMS is said to be at least triple milled.

I don't know what happened to all of mine, here is an old one, when I first got my CH2 2 years ago.

Excellent videos and pics Matt! I love that dense & creamy lather that you create. It makes me think my lather could still be a touch dry so I'll be adding a bit more water in next shave. Thanks for sharing!

BTW, who's the avatar of currently?

Thanks, Brian! I always enjoy seeing your videos and shots as well as you also make the kind of lather that I prefer.

The current avatar is a young lady named Valerie Anne Poxleitner also known as "Lights". She's a musician, but truth be told I'm not a huge fan of her music. She is however, quite easy on the eyes.

Made a couple lathering videos this morning. Shout out to Matt (VT_Hokie). This is my first time making any videos where I speak and my phone's mic is a bit more sensitive than I expected. I hope y'all like 'em.

I made a test lather with a new (to me) soap this afternoon. Care to guess what it was? Hints: I gave it my standard bowl lathering routine. A 60 second load with a damp brush, and two minute in the bowl with driblets of water added in 30 second intervals.

A big, fluffy lather on the brush:

Plenty of lather left in the bowl as well:

Give up? It's....

I haven't shaved with it yet, but it doesn't seem so bad. A bit thin at first application, but some paintbrush strokes thickened it up. It seemed slick enough (with the fingernail against the skin test). I'm interested to give this a shot for real, I just need to find a spot in the rotation among my other great soaps.

Nicely done with that Williams lather. Did it hold up too? I could lather it up pretty well but the stability is what always seemed inconsistent for me.

It didn't seem to fade on it's own, but yes it was thinner than it looked but still slick.
