    Can’t wait to give these a test lather tonight!
    Will be in between packing for my trip but wish I could have used these beforehand.
    Thanks to @Sxot for these and they smell really nice indeed!

    It took AusPost ages but my bespoke @Sxot soap has arrived. Love the smell from the tubs.

    For those still in the game, we are now over 1/3 of the way through the year - and honestly hasn't it been easy not having to
    1. delve into the wallet
    2. spend frustrating amounts of time wondering what on earth our packages are doing on the conveyor belts at Chullora for the 17th day running
    3. have yet another option in our choice(s) of shaving hardware / software to use.

    I'm not on sabbatical. But, besides the ~10soaps I actively use, I have at least 7 I haven't even opened yet.
    I think I have a problem.

    Perhaps a sabbatical would do me some good...

    I see no PROBLEM - I see an INVESTMENT!

    Only 17 total? Mines about 30 and then about 5 tubs worth of samples, hahaha... err... :unsure:

    SV Opuntia still unlathered (my carrot to finish a soap). Once I finish the 50g sample of Cella I've been using for the last few shaves, I'll decide if I should focus on finishing other stuff or go back to rotating.
    I think I've reached that point in my journey where I have to focus on using my current stuff (also, limit untested stuff to samples) and then stockpile the favourites.

    Also if I didn't enjoy the variety, I could see myself just buying a kilo of Cella and using that exclusively. Once I use up a bunch of stuff I might actually buy some for rotation (y)

    Feeling your pain. Have way too many soaps and dozens unopened. Still working through samples so at least they are gone forever.
    Only thing I'm looking at these days are frags but that is another mine field as I get so bored with one smell after a day.

    Personalised level 2 open comb Charcoal Goods baseplate. Without a shadow of a doubt this plate with a Charcoal head is simply the best combo for my beard and skin. If I was marooned on a desert island, this is what I'd take.

    Big day at the post office for me!


    Love the extra touch with the blue paper @todras. This smells like nothing I own so far. Can't wait to give it a crack.


    All the way from Canada!

    Just remember that all of the soaps above really appreciate a generous load from the tub and you will love them all.
