Simple question requiring a simple Yes/No answer
Didn't try with hot water but...no. Whatever I did I end up with a frothy layer.
Nope. I think I nearly got a decent lather on one occasion, but had many fails.
Would never buy it again.
Yes, every time.

Old faithful I call it.
Lovely. I had a puck that would lather up no problem and then the replacement puck was hopeless or I’d lost my MWF mojo...
I have never had a problem with it as I load heavily and take my time building the lather. It takes a bit longer than most soaps, but it is just fine.
Nonetheless, I don't use it as I have never enjoyed the synthetic scent emanating from it and there are just too many other great soaps to choose from.
A big “FAT” yes
Wow that is what I called a lather. This is the lather I expect from a soap.
Now sir Watson, is it possible to upload a video with the exact procedure? I would be thankful to see what you are doing.
Good poll Wayne.
I am a yes too.
Although, not sure I get it as good as Dr Watson.
Mind you I face lather, so don't know actually........
*carries on mumbling to himself as he wanders off vaguely..............*
Like Celestino, I haven't had any problem lathering it. Perhaps it has to do with the qualities (hardness level?) of the water in our area of the world.
Yes, with absolutely no issues whatsoever whatever the condition, new, old, dried, cracked; whatever water, hard, soft, cold, hot; whatever brush.
Then I must doing something wrong..
No chance of a video presently I'm afraid, might be in a position to do things like that when I move house later in the year though! Can't say I've ever put much thought into lathering the fat, just trial and error initially until I found what worked best for me...
Bloom the puck for as long as you can
Load it like you hate it for 30-45 seconds with a damp brush (holding approximately 50% of it water capacity)
Move to building lather on face, dipping the brush tips in water as I go until the lather is the right consistency has a nice sheen
I would say if your lather is thin, bubbly or dissipating then you either have too much water or not enough soap in the mix.
Never failed with it, the lather's excellent every time.
