My short and sweet advice is have you tried blooming the soap in hot tap water for 5 minutes?..or you might have bought a dodgy tin?..this does happen with any mass-produced items, not just ones made in china..you always take a chance, and it could well be with the tin you bought was faulty, give my blooming method a try, if that doesn't work..put it down to a bad purchase and move on to a brand you can get good results with.
Take it easy. B

Thanks for the reply. Yes I tried blooming the soap, alas to no avail. Maybe it is just a dodgy tin? Perhaps best to call it quits with this one and move on as you suggest. After all, there are many other soaps that do work perfectly well.

A new shave set up to start the weekend..Another saturday shift at the mill, hopefully we can get the back log of work up to date and finish early..something tells me we won't though, oh well,as always needs must, at least my shave has started the weekend off with some pleasure..'Onwards & upwards'.
It's been a while since i last used the KMF shaving cream, it created a wonderful lather without drying out in between passes, the post shave feeling was superb.
The Weishi 2.0 Adj /Ladas SS matched together very nicely resulting in a comfortable 3 pass + pick ups near bbs shave with no errors to report.I'm really impressed by the smooth efficiency of the Weishi Adj...Another very 'face feeling' bbs shave.
Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Boots ~ Freshwood ASL.
Enjoy the start of the weekend, ladies & gentlemen.
