    I have always taken buffing as going over the same area in short repeating/advancing strokes.
    I refer to it as touch ups - usually done with water only going over the face. There is some slickness left from the lather. It allows for the closest shave. Barbers referred to it as the "second time over" in my Barbering textbook.
    Just a shower prep for me. 30 second brush soak in hot water sitting on puck.
    Dump water, gather some lather and go to town. always enough for a three pass plus touchups.

    I just shower and shave too but i don't soak my soap just wet the brush, i only really soak boar when its new.

    I don't polish buff or touch up really, except my chin and that can result in a surprising amount of the red stuff takes effort to stop.

    You never realize what you have until it's gone -- Toilet paper is a good example

    I usually soak the badger in water on top of soap for about 30 seconds because it seems to break the surface tension in the water.
    If I just rinse the brush without soaking in the soap water then hold it upside down to drain, the brush does not release or absorb much water.
    If you do the same will water on the puck for about 30 seconds the brush seems to absorb 10 fold also releasing more of a stream when draining held upside down.
    The difference is huge IMO.
