About having excess lather? It wasn't something I worried about. I mean, there are so many good soaps out there, that if a little extra went down the drain and I used a bit more, no worries. But that excess lather, it doesn't get the joy of being used for a shave. It makes me sad. I have done things like washed my hands with it, or just let it sit on my face while cleaning up, but still. It doesn't get to reach its full potential. So sad.
