How many soaps/creams in your collection?

Postby Thug » Thu Aug 11, 2016 11:50 am

I've just ordered a couple of LPL soaps from RVT and it got me thinking that I probably have too many soaps in my collection.

Not necessarily in order of preference:

Cold River Soap Works x 1
Eufros x 2
Mystic Water x 4
La Pere Lucien x 2
Essence of Scotland x 1
Tabac x 1
Mitchell's Wool Fat x 1
River Valley Trading x 3
Shaver Heaven x 2
Col Conk x 1

So that makes it 18 and I probably haven't finished buying. I still want to get some Meiβner Tremonia and DR Harris Windsor. :lol: :oo

The above excludes the creams my son uses (I think he's currently on Old Spice Musk).

Reitzer Perfect Shave
RVT Spicy Bay Rum
Simply Bee
Wild Dagga

Others I have tried:

Lovely collections deepsouth & Jacquers.

Forgot I also have Proraso red :oo

I can't even pare mine down to the better performing soaps because they all perform admirably.
Eish, such is life. :lol:

Great collection there Riaanb!

I forgot I also have Razorock Classic (21)

So it would appear that I have a small collection in comparison with some. The SAD has really bitten! :lol:
