How many different soaps and creams do you have in your rotation?

EDIT: If you have multiple "flavours" from individual manufactures, I think you must count each as a separate one...

Soaps, just three:

TABAC
Proraso Green - New Formula

Creams:

Proraso Green - Both old and new formula
Speick
Palmolive Classic
Palmolive Menthol
Nivea
GFT
GFT Limes

That's it. A very small collection.

Exactly why I didn't post the "How many brushes in your stable thread?"

I will have to go count.

I have a small rotation, but a bit of stockpile of "yet to try!"

At least you have a legitimate excuse... Can't recommend a product unless you've tried it!

Here's the poll I did on this a little while ago. It will be interesting to see how it's changed for some of us.

How Many do you have?

The additional 1 out of 3 shaves is divided into:
2. Speick Shave Stick
3. MJ Soap Shop - Sleigh Ride
4. Proraso Cream
5. Tabac Shave Stick

To tell the truth Nick, I was surprised to see the last three on your list. Actually I can't remember when I saw anything other than the first three.
