My last shave with Grooming Department Dapper Mallard soap. It's a very good soap providing a nice, slick lather. I do a four pass face and neck shave and two pass head shave and got 30 shaves out of the puck.
Getting close to a kill here myself (I hope)
Thanks everyone. I’m going to finish off. July killing some samples I probably have 6 months with of samples and keep getting sent more and more pretty much every time I do a trade. First sample on the block is B&M cool.Nice!
Killing samples is fun and a great way to feel like you’re making progress. Enjoy the Cool!Thanks everyone. I’m going to finish off.

Osage RubPenhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet cream in a tube is now done. 150ml/5oz is quite a thing to see through to the end. I started back in Feb. I think. I forget, but it's been quite a while. Lovely classic British fragrance. I never tired of it. Like a stronger, deeper Arlington. In fact, I paired it with Arlington AS quite a bit. I tended toward the matching AS balm, AdP inspired aftershaves (XXX, Stirling Picenza) and Arlington splash as the finishing touches every morning. Pleasant way to work my way into summer. Still not a huge fan of creams, and still convinced the better tallow pucks trump the creams regardless of how high quality the creams may be. But, I can't knock the tube of BB. It provided excellent shaves. I'm not sure but I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't a Creighton's cream. It's right there with TOBS, DRH etc. Maybe a bit of extra something post shave - maybe? But very typical Creighton's type performance.
It's the year of creams so up next, and just in time for the dog days of summer, is a brand new tube of Palmolive menthol. Hopefully this isn't quite the same commitment in time. What to pair as an AS? I've pulled out Snake Bite and Cryogen. I'll see what else comes to mind as I start the first week or two with the cream.
I believe the answer is yes. At the time I purchased my shave yeti soaps there were six different flavors. So far I have tried two of them (the yeti snot, and the fruit punch one) and found the lather rather wispy and not lasting much at all. I was able to make them work and will probably use up my remaining ones but I am unlikely to purchase more (I have 58 unused soaps) anytime soon.Great job! Was Shave Yeti a glycerine soap?
