I had read about and dabbled in "superlathering" way back when I began this wonderful journey of wet shaving but had completely forgotten about it until recently when looking back over my oldest shaving log. I decided to do a string of them and here's what I've put together so far. My first was...
I've grated two Speick sticks and pressed it into an old shaving bowl. That and Speick cream
vintage C&E Mysore Sandlewood soap and TOBS Sandlewood cream
Tabac & LaToja
C&S Oxford and Cambridge with Coates Lavender cream
DR Harris Lavender soap with Coates Lavender cream
MWF with GFT Lime
C&E Nomad with Coates Sandlewood
PdP with Classic Shaving's Citrus Basil cream
DR Harris Marlborough soap & LaToja
MdC with Coates Almond
The results are nothing short of phenomenal and it's helping me move thru my creams faster which are in danger of drying out since I usually use a soap five or six days a week.
Let's hear your combos, if you do it.

The two best combos for me were quite similar:

MWF w/Speick cream
Haslinger Schafmilch w/Speick cream

Ultra protection and performance!

I have grated a bad penhaligons english fern with some Lavanda (by Ach.Brito) cream and pure glycerin, wich did prevent it from going to the trash bin. But it would hardly be a "super" lather, only a "average" lather Biggrin

But your post did gave me an ideia, it should be interesting. Smile

A 50/50 mix of Tabac and AoS tallow Sandalwood. I thank Jordy for this, one of the best combos ever.
