Recently bought some Bay Rum scented soap. It made great lather, but not very slick. Loving the scent, but disappointed in the shave, I decided to "fix it". After adding castor oil, glycerine and some Lanolin, I killed the lather altogether, but it was slick & shaved batter. Missing the required lather, I added some Cremo to the mix. It now lathers like a demon and is plenty slick. It also now fills a storage bowl and also a Ramekin for use. If this were my only soap, it would still last me several years.
