I have thought about this for a while as I am a lover of MWF.  I would like to see them make a shaving cream.  So here is my poll with a two part question, would you like to see MWF make a cream and would you use it if they did.

That would be interesting, but I would probably only buy it out of curiosity.  For me the original appeal of MWF was the lanolin content, but now every artisan and some bigger makers use lanolin pretty much as a matter of course.  And for shaving creams, Musgo Real, one of my favorites, already uses lanolin.

I consider MWF to be the best shaving soap on the market hands down. I would not be inclined to use a cream though. I exclusively face lather and face lathering a cream just doesn't seem right (especially with a synthetic).

Yes, especially if the scent could get dialed up a bit more.

I will have to, respectfully, say no as I just don't like the smell of MWF. I just find it has a synthetic scent that is a bit overpowering. Sorry, gents. Blush
I wish you the best of luck, Johnny, in trying to have this come to fruition, though! Thumbup

It has some great properties, although.

Most people say it has a nearly non-existent scent. I love the scent because of its subtlety in the face of a sea of soaps with nostril-burning cheap-cologne-type scents.

Unfortunately, for me, the scent isn't so subtle. I didn't mean to imply it was excessive, but it is quite noticeable and not so pleasant.
Nonetheless, as I had mentioned, it still is a very good soap.

I think I am one of the few who don't really get why MWF is considered so good? Maybe I just need more practise lathering it???

Would probably try a cream, but not overly fussed if they don't make one.

They should do a creme.

Reason is simple: comfort of loading.

And: who would want to be without instant MWF? Mix it in, use as a base....

Oh yeah, definitely would want a cream MWF. Perhaps it would be an easier and quicker lather. At least I now have soft water so it's much better to lather the soap. Aces!

I don't think I could take the MWF scent every day.  Too strong and lotiony.

And something else about MWF leaves my face vaguely unhappy.  Perhaps the lanolin

Johnny, I like MWF, but prefer soaps to cream. With a large rotation of products, the soaps IMO last much longer (in terms of shelf life once opened/used). I'm in the process of trying to use up the majority of my creams (which is going to take some time and effort, especially since I favour soap and keep choosing it instead). While cream holds appeal to many for its ease of lathering, I prefer the original in this case.

Should MWF produce a cream? I think they probably should. Would I buy it? Probably not.

I still voted "yes" in the poll (as I would answer yes to the first part of your question, but no to the second part).

I super lather for almost all of my shaves, but find the MWF scent boring, so mit it with an interesting smelling cream to get the easy lathering and cushion/protection from the cream and the wonderfull glide, slickness and post shave feel from the MWF.

So I say NAY in this case !

Ok.  Kent soap is said to be rebranded Mitchell´s soap.
What is Kent cream like? Will this be what comes up as Mitchell brings its own cream to market?

Hardly.....the Kent cream I owned in 2012 was a minty soft cream, on par with TOBS performance wise, probablt made by Creighton.
Nice, yet forgettable, cream, but sold it due to the little diameter of the pot.

I voted yes, but just out of curiosity also. I've used my share of MWF, but currently don't have it and am not planning on replacing it any time soon.

Claus mentioned super-lathering in an earlier post,  and that is my normal practice too. I think MWF is fine soap, but I am also not a fan of the scent. It's vaguely pleasant and mild enough to ignore, but when used in concert with a superb cream(Musgo Real, maybe) it is the best of all possible worlds for me, latherwise anyway.

I'll tell you what I'd love to see -- MWF in alternate scents! I can imagine a puck of MWF Eucris that would be very fine indeed. Or lavender, or sandalwood......

Actually, Tabac seems almost like another, more strongly scented version of WMF to me. I tend to like strongly scented soaps and creams, and blending them offers so much variety.

The mind boggles.
