Hold your brush under hot water then shake gently to drain excess water. Rub the top of the shaving soap with the tips of the bristles to develop a lather in the mug. Rub the brush in a circular motion over the area you want to shave, moving the brush in circles will force the lather into your pores so you get a better shave. Start with your neck and move up your face then shave the way you normally do with the razor of your choice. Re-lather if any areas need to be shaved a second time. Rinse all of the soap out of your brush when finished shaving.
