    BIC Chrome Platinum - Amazing Blades

    My response was that quality is not consistent so my experience was itself inconsistent. I think your comment is more on the lines of depending on razor, skin type, prep method, etc. some people may have a better or worse experience than others for a given blade. If quality control is indeed...

    BIC Chrome Platinum - Amazing Blades

    I’m comparing performance across different tucks. I tend to use a fresh blade each shave.

    BIC Chrome Platinum - Amazing Blades

    The first time I used it, it was great. The second time around, I found it too rough. I think there's quality control problem with these.

    Best Inexpensive Cream - IYHO

    What store is this from? Also has anyone tried the Nivea from Smallflower? It looks like their #1 selling cream and has 100% 5-star reviews.

    surgical vs marine stainless steel

    Almost all stainless steel DE razors that mention the type of stainless steel used say it's marine grade. How is this different from surgical grade stainless steel? I see some straights mention they are made from surgical grade stainless steel.

    What are the best tactics for 3017ing a soap?

    Just thought of something -- 1/ If any of them are past the "best by" date, then toss them. 2/ Use the Marie Kondo approach. Hold each soap or cream in your hand. If it sparks joy, it's a keeper. :D 3/ If it doesn't spark joy, PIF it or take it to your local thrift store. Let it bring joy to...

    What are the best tactics for 3017ing a soap?

    This is novel idea. I didn't see it mentioned. It's not even an option in the poll.

    MdC and benzoin

    Just heard back from MdC. I had only asked about Vetyver because that's the one I have on order. They said it doesn't contain benzoin. I asked a follow up question on which other scents don't have it. Will update when I hear back. You could give the Vetyver a try. :)

    What are the best tactics for 3017ing a soap?

    I'm nearing the end of my 3rd jar of 200g MdC. The first was the natural, and the next two were the original. I use it to shave daily and load generously. This one has lasted about 10 months so far. I have a vetyver on order.
