For you guys that find MWF difficult to work with may I suggest try using it in stick form. I already liked MWF but I decided to try it in stick form. So I loaded it into a tube and Wow!  It lathered great. I think it is easier to make lather with it in a stick than in a puck. Either way it is worth a try. This is a great soap that is even better in a stick, IMO.

I don't want to try MWF again in any form...  Tongue


But it can work for some that have trouble making lather and want to give it another shot.

I never had a problem with MWF either but it works really great in a stick. I just load it on my face and take a wet brush and BAMB! Lather every where. Good stuff.

I haven't used MWF in years butit was ok for me. I take what you're saying is that it needs lots of water as in most sticks?

I fine shave sticks work best with a wet brush. I take a soaking wet brush and give it one snap of the wrist.  MWF works great in a stick.

Initially I found it easier to lather in a stick form too. However, I discovered the real secret to getting a great lather was a damp brush. No problem now.

MWF is the one soap that definitely benefits from "blooming"

I "bloom" it for 5 min or so and take a large Thater brush to it. Work the puck like it owes you money. And don't be afraid to add water. MWF loves water.

Voila!

They don't say how wet the brush is to start with.  Very wet or just damp?

I don't see the problem  Huh  I used MWF today, I cover the puck with HOT water(not boiling) bloom for 5-6 minutes.
Drain puck, use a WET brush, lather about 30-45 seconds then face lather. Works every time for me, I use a badger brush,
think I'll try a synthetic tomorrow, never done that. But, I find MWF to be an easy soap to lather and such a great soap..IMHO   Blush

I completely understand how some things in our "thing" work for some and not others but I've never have had a problem lathering MWF either face or bowl.

I have never had a problem either but some guys do.  Using a shave stick is a great way to make lather.

MWF is the only soap I “bloom” before use. I set it in the sink while I shower and then rub the puck on my face and load my brush as well. I start with a damp brush and get a consistently quality lather using this method. That said, my lathers were no where as good as they are now when I failed to bloom the puck.

i don't believe any soap needs to be bloomed. You just have to find the right mix of water to product.

Ron, I used to think that also.  However, I have hard water and found that Mystic Water benefits from blooming.   I now feel that most soaps don't need to be bloomed,  but I can see a few of them benefitting from it.
