We really don't have a lot of players at this stage - still time to join!

This is a great opportunity to test drive a wide range of stuff, some not easily available.

How does it work?

You read the rules below, sign up, get the box, try stuff, pass it on!

Simple really :)

THE RULES (as plagiarised YNW and modified slightly)

1. For the sake of simplicity, the box is available to participants in Australia only at this point in time.
2. You will need to be an active member of Paste & Cut to be a participant.
3. Participants will need to provide their address and a contact mobile number to the facilitator (me) via PM
4. If applicable, the sender is responsible for cleaning the items before sending the box and the receiver is responsible for sanitising the items upon receipt.
5. The box can be kept for 2 weeks, please do not exceed 3 weeks - maybe take samples of the samples?
6. Post when you have received the box and your impression/comments for the products within – we want to hear your opinions and see your pics! Reviews don't need to be complicated, even a rating system is fine.
7. When you have finished, PM the next recipient to ensure they are ready to receive the box.
8. The box is to be posted with a tracking number/express post at all times and that number is to be posted in this thread.
9. Please keep the weight of the box to 3kg or under to keep shipping costs down.
10. Any problems, PM me.

If you are interested in playing please post below and then PM me your real name, address and a contact number.

So out of all these samples. Which soap has the most residual slickness?

That is very subjective. Depends on the user and their opinion as there are a lot of top ten soaps in that list. Hence the reason for the box.

@Mark1966 incredible list, week done, so thought you wanted to half the list. Basically what? 90% still included from the survey.

I'd agree, as most soaps are able to be worked to a very slick lather, but trial and error means this may not happen within a handful of shaves.

Thanks @Mark1966 for organising this box and to all members who have contributed!

Sorry to not be clear!

The lists above are the results of the survey in order of demand. I will work down the lists until the box is full and then omit the rest :)

I would also think of leaving 2nd and/or 3rd scents of the same soap base out in order to have additional examples of a different soap in there. Especially if those scents are unobtanium any way...

Surely the main objective of the box has to be to enable members here to buy more soap :D

Yep, it will be a carefully curated selection is I think the phrase ...

@Mark1966 sorry my bad. Morning coffee didn't kick in. Clearer now, starting from the top down until you call it full :giggle:

Agree, if this helps to weed a few soaps off the list then worth it to try another Vendor's product like Luna's and other current hidden gems. (y)

So this is what a P&C Travelling Box of goodies looks like before packing -



A little over 2.5kg worth so it will sneak in under 3kg with packing. All ready to be posted Monday to the first recipient. That would be according to the list ...

@Rami !!!

Heading your way soon mate.
