Since I've started DE shaving in December 2013 there have been many soaps/creams that have been through my shave den. The first was a puck of Van der Hagen deluxe that I went through in over a month. After that different soaps/creams were purchased and I rotated them not really paying attention to how long they lasted. Earlier this year I noticed that I had more than a dozen full size soaps/creams (half of which had not been used) and over a dozen samples. So I decided to start going through them one at a time and keep track of how long each lasts.
