Adding soap to cream

The other day I was using some Arko Cool Mint shave cream, which makes a pretty decent lather but is – in my opinion – somewhat lacking in the mentholated kick department. Acting on an impulse I added a couple drops of Dr Bronners liquid peppermint soap as I was building my lather…

The result was a thicker lather than usual, with a distinct and pleasant menthol-peppermint kick to it – a definite improvement both on the face-feel and the cushioning. I suspect I’ll do it again the next time I use the Arko cream, and possible to some of my other creams too.
