I've been working through a puck of MWF and a tub of XPEC for many months. I finally exhausted the MWF last week and am 70 pct done with the XPEC. I will have nothing left in my 'rotation' once the XPEC is depleted. My new philosophy is to keep a minimal rotation and replace them only when completely used up. With that said, based on recommendations here, l will buy one high end soap (mdc, nuavia, SV etc), one non-artisan regular soap that won't break the bank, and one artisan soap where l will be willing to splurge a bit. I haven't been following the trends in the artisan market. Many artisans that people raved about 5 years ago don't seem to be discussed here these days. Let's hear your recommendations and l will base my decision on what to purchase on the feedback received here.
