I'm using Cade in my "use it up" rotation now, for the past several weeks, and while I'm getting a decent lather - it's not very cushioning, at least not compared to the other creams/soaps I've used before.

Anyone else have this problem?

Some details:
Razor: Aristocrat Jr
Blade: Super Iridium (original) so far - 2 different blades
Brushes: various, usually either the Semogue boar-badger or stiff badger brushes like Rooney Finest
Lathering time: 60 seconds
Superlather?: Tried it with KMF Unscented

Tonight I tried using a Palmolive stick and same technique and got plenty of cushion, no cuts.

I enjoy Cade but there are many soaps out there with more cushion.

I usually put in a few drops Food Grade Glycerine when I use Cade...It doesn't help with cushion, but it provides tons of glide, which seems help. Hope this helps!

I had the same experience as you. Cade had no cushion for me. Maybe, it's my water...Huh

Can you explain what you mean about no cushion? What is cushion?

I find with MWF, B&M and Mikes; once I shave; if I wet the skin, it becomes slippery and I can do another swipe of the razor. What is this called? Glide?

I use a Cade puck. I have never had any negative issues.

This is funny as I just recently purchased a cade soap - and I could not believe my experience. The lather is ridiculously thick and that was not the case 2 years ago. At that time I hated the soap so much that I gave it away free. Not to mention at the time my brushes were not that great. This time I used chubby 2 and the lather I got was VERY comparable to MDC. I am now convinced that they have changed the formula....I don't think a brush can make that much of a difference - can it?

I have fond memories of the scent and performance of Cade, but if memory serves me correctly, it dried my face out like crazy.

I find it performs like a high quality vegetable based soap but it doesn't have the cushion of a quality tallow based soap.

It does smell great!

Cade is one of my favorite too, the other being the MdC, and they performance is just about the same, excellent.

I'm getting much better performance after turning to my boars for this soap.

I agree that it doesn't have as much cushion as some of my other favorites, but I do get a great shave when I use it, and it's hard to beat the scent…..

To me:
Glide (or slickness)-the friction between the blade and the skin

Cushion-similar to glide but in different way-think of it as lather that gives a lot of cushion protects the skin from the razor. There is a "cushion" of lather between the blade and the skin. Take a good slick olive oil bath soap-decent glide and no cushion.

Hopefully I did not confuse you, but that is how I look at it

I find using a larger brush with Cade makes better lather and thus provides more cushion. I actually like it very much, but for me eShave provides a better shave and use it more often.

I've got the Cade puck and I've got a love/hate relationship with it. The lather is OK, but not on a par with MWF. It needs more water to produce a good lather, and the scent is, well..., different. Keep it wet, very wet, and it's pretty good stuff. When this puck is gone (in about 2045!), I don't think I'll buy more.

My experience with Cade soap is the same as above. I have no complaints with it. I have two pucks and the beautiful bowl too. The scent is unique and very pleasant to me.

Had the same problem with the cream as others, could not get a decent lather with my EJ Silvertip brush and would dry on the face quickly. But with my Murdock Badger Brush which is larger, I get plenty of lather.

Strange how Cade Cream performs differently with different brushes.

I have the same problem with my custom badger brush, and thinking about alternatives to this soap. Any ideas, recommendations where I can look for the soap with great properties and ecological ingredients ?

I'm guessing here since I don't know how you use it, but more (small) "water dips" during loading and more loading time should solve any issues, with hard veggie soaps especially.
