    Default Ordered New Soap

    Okay I will be clear on this. I am making a valiant attempt not to end up with any Acquisition Disorders. I did however order a puck of TOBS Lavender for when my initial Puck of Classic brand Bay Rum runs out. I want to try different brands and form my own opinions on them. I just don't want to end up with either a bunch of pucks, razors, or brushes. I think having more than one puck may be as far for the AD as I will allow myself.

    In any aspect I look forward to seeing the differences in each.

    i spent the better part of 2 years clear of any aquisition disorders and then i fell hard and ordered 7 soaps and creams last week and can hardly wait, please let me know how you like the TOBS lavender as im thinking of getting either that AOS or the RR king louis.

    And btw of all the aquisition disorders... i think soap is the least harmful to your bank account :P

    I think SAD may be the easiest to get though. I shave 2-3 a week maximum. The idea of more than one brush or razor is beyond me when the equipment has resting time between shaves. I can see though where I might be doing something special and want a different scent for the occasion easily leading to more pucks.

    I shave the same amount... i currently have 2 razors(nice amount for 2-3 a week i find) but me and my very good friend are going to start restoring them very soon, this will easily lead to a RAD

    You're screwed. You start out stating how easy SAD is to avoid and then at the end of the post you justify having more soaps. Welcome to SAD. The support group meets on Monday's.

    TOBS is a fine choice, I think you'll be happy with that one. You'll probably find it's a step up from Classic Shaving brand.

    I agree with you, the SAD is the less harmful, I can accept that I "suffer" from this. LOL

    It all started innocent enough. A puck of bay rum Col Conk soap my first ever "hit" ie soap. After hanging around undesirable web forums ummmm SRP I got onto TOBS sandalwood soap.. then a couple of TOBS creams (Love Lemon & Lime BTW) then Castle Forbes, then D.R. Harris, then GFT, then TABAC and then of course I had to try the MWF and then ....
