    Excellent. Thanks. I didn't even know you could buy a bottle of glycerin. Is it's purpose to help smooth gliding? Or does it assist in creating a rich thick lather?

    I counted passes during lathering when I shaved tonight, and it's a little more than I mentioned. Probably 2-3 passes after dabbing, 4-5 drops of glycerin, then I just swirl until I get the lather I want. I also add water to the brush as appropriate. And yea, glycerin can be gotten a walgreens, cvs, or pretty much any pharmacy for like $1. I find it makes for a smoother pass. Sometimes, especially with soaps, I would occasionally get "skipping". The glycerin just adds a little glide to the cream.

    I received my Truefitt & Hill Trafalgar shave cream bowl yesterday and broke it out for this mornings shave. I am impressed and dare say it might be my favorite cream/soap; possibly edging out my CF. The scent is awesome. I can't describe it, but it is unlike anything else I currently have.

    I just tried the Trafalgar for the first time last night - LOVE that stuff! Truefitt & Hill now makes my top 2 favorite creams.

    I used my new tub of West Indies Lime this morning. It smells great.

    Not sure after one shave if it ranks with TOBS but it is darn close.
