Soap Of The Month Club (SOTMC)

Finished the sample of La Toja today. It went faster than expected, 14 three pass shaves from a 5mm slice of a stick. I plan on finishing the month with Noble Otter 'Lonestar'.

I missed the deadline for August signups but it worked out in my favor as I couldn't hang with the menthol in the Iced Coffee. I switched to the next soap on my list (NO Barrbarr) partway through the month and am getting great shaves now. Looking forward to this month and exploring the soap a little more. There are a few kinks that still need to be worked out as I am not getting quite the consistency I was able to achieve with WSP's Formula T base.
