What kind of brush did you use?Tried out for the first time today - unlike others I'm not using a bowl for building lather. I went about putting some on my hands, rubbing together and rubbing the resulting spread onto my face. I tried to build some lather with my brush but nothing going. I then put a fairly generous dollop into the brush and tried to build lather from there... again, nothing going. I still shaved with the resulting 'emulsion' which provided about enough slickness for a pass, with the benefit of seeing which hairs are being removed.
I would absolutely assume this to be an anomalous result, and am placing the blame more solely on my brush's cleanliness. I've since given it a wash and will attempt another run with the SSV2 over the next few days.
Also interestingly, the brush felt almost tacky after use, as did my face. As if I'd washed with a 'non-sensitive' soap. Everything felt squeaky clean but it wasn't conducive to a solid lather... today.
I'll report back again in due course.
