Whipping up lather from shaving soap using a good brush is the first step to any wet shave. Shaving bowls are made with large enough diameters so you have enough room for the bar of soap and the brush to lather it up. It is important to think of the size of your shaving brush when choosing your shaving bowl.
Real shaving connoisseurs swear by the traditional shaving mugs. They are relatively large ceramic bowls that have a solid handle to work with.
Start by thoroughly soaking your shaving brush bristles in lukewarm water. Next use circular motions to whip up the shaving soap into a nice lather then apply it to your face. By using only quality shaving soaps, you will soon figure out how much lather you need to produce for a nice close shave.
