    Most of the bad soap/creams that I get end up at my workshop sink because even a bad soap can be used to help wash off dirt, sawdust, glue, oil, etc. A few of them that were terrible for shaving are excellent for getting cutting oil off my hands. I also use them to lube screws and drill bits (in wood).

    I have 2 real creams. The Trumpers limes and AOS Lemon. Very long-lasting, to me.
    I would buy them both again. Never took a crappy puck to the shower.
    Would depend on why I did not want it on my face, I suppose!

    I found that sub par shave soaps/creams usually work well for washing my hair. What is left of it anyway.

    Can't seem to find it anywhere over here in Europe, purely for it's scent

    I've actually been using D R Harris Lavender for years, I once bought a couple of tubs and haven't used anything else ever since, good stuff

    I got a couple of Trumpers creams as a gift years ago, also good stuff.

    Aside from those I've used Cella crema sapone and Klar rasierseifen, all excellent stuff.

    No shower duty soaps or creams for me

    Soaps are a little slicker and I get somewhat closer shaves, creams give me a little more cushion / skin protection.

    Use undesired cremes as a pre-shave treatment. Rub it on your face before applying a hot wash cloth. It works great, and boosts your lather.
