    Default One Economic Advantage of Soaps Over Creams

    This is, perhaps, overly obvious to warrant a post, but I just had a subpar shave with a cream and thought I'd share.

    When you are addicted to trying new products and have soap acquisition disorder(SAD) like I do, you're gonna end up with some clunkers. I know I've picked up some real under-performers over the years. But, if I'm not happy with a soap, it goes straight to the shower. And I've had some fantastic showers with some pretty lame shaving soaps.

    With a cream, you don't have the opportunity of giving it a second life and recouping a least some of your investment. You're just left with a tub of worthless goo.

    May I ask what cream it was?

    There's always a chance with creams to add them to another soap or cream and stretch them out

    I think you could get away with using cream in the shower. Better than wasting. Or donate for giveaway.

    I have only used one cream and it worked well so I can't speak from experience but I would think a dab or two on a washcloth would work.

    I shave before I shower and and rub left over lather on before all the time.

    I have 2 shaving soaps. One is from SRD sweet patchouli which I do like and one from Walmart that works OK but doesn't smell very good. I have 2 creams one from SRD Castle Forbes Lavender and one from the ART Of Shaving sandelwood. I do like the castle forbes best. They all do the job as long as you take the time to build the lather. The cheap one from Walmart (and I do mean cheap) shaves quite well but takes longer to build the lather and not much Oder to it good or bad. I look at different shaving products when the wife and I go shopping but find very few. I do wish there were more to choose from out in the market place other than having to order it from specialty sites. I would defiantly try more it they were readily available.

    It was some Salter, a company I appreciate, but I have too many top tier soaps and creams to bother. I idea of adding it to another is interesting because the scent is nice.

    Well, you could whip it up like whipped cream and serve it to some folks you don't like. They'll never return.

    I have used a shave cream as a shower soap. I don't often buy creams because I mostly face lather and most of the ones I bought were good. I did buy one at an artisan shop that was not worth shaving with. It went to the shower, hard soaps go there too if I don't like them for shaving.
