I had a few weeks on Latha as I was on a cruise and it seemed appropriate! I don't like to mention my trips while I'm gone which is why I didn't mention it earlier.

ALL DONE!!!!!!!  It was a really nice soap. Good performance with a great summer scent. Still, I do not believe I would order again. There are too many other soaps to try. Next week is wide open. I am thinking CF Lav, CRSW Olivia Col Med, Caties Bubbles, TOBS Jermyn St. As always it will depend on my mood in the morning.

Nice!  Got through an entire puck, and with a lot of choices for next week.  Enjoy.

@Gabe - congrats buddy, nice finish! (I totally agree with your conclusion as well)

I'm working on a tub of Mickey Lee Soapworks "Panty Dropper" another great scented soap with a performance to match.

Now that I'm back, I am determined to finish my Haslinger Schafmilch. There are less than a dozen shaves left, so a few weeks more. It shaves great.

I also looked ahead and next up is AoS Sandalwood tallow. That is cool because I can do an A/B comparison versus Haslinger.

I went with B&M Latha Lavanda last week. I am going to continue with it this week. Very difficult to beat the performance of this soap, especially at its price point.

I'm using an older puck of C&S No. 88.  I'm fairly certain this is the modern formula but the packaging sure was cool!

Dave, the current ones are made in Italy. That says England.

Good call Matt!  It is suspiciously similar to the modern version though and I wonder if they were just using up old packaging.  Regardless, the shaves have been wonderful.

I love Palmolive. Enjoy Gave!

My Haslinger partial puck is at shave 11, and has a hole in the middle but at least 3 more shaves left. After that another fantastic one, AoS tallow.

I love those AOS tallow. I recently picked up two lemons.

This week is supposed to be a hot one so out comes the I Coloniali.  There isn't a whole lot left but I'm sure I'll make it through the week.  First two shaves have been great, man this stuff smells GOOD!

OMG, this Haslinger won't die! I'm on shave 13, out of a 14.3g sample. And it really looks like there's a full shave left. I doubt there's two left but I didn't think I'd hit 13 so... We'll see.

I am not usually one to use shaving creams, but got this at a price I couldn't pass up.  I truly miss loading from the puck, but the performance of the Atkinsons' cream leaves nothing to be desired.  The combination of the herbal lavender and light hint of menthol make a good match as the weather slowly escalates.

Well, I spoke one shave too soon. It feels good to knock something out of inventory, I just wish I liked the scent of Schafmilch more because the performance is great.

For the next week, I have another top tier on deck: AoS Sandalwood (with tallow)!

I am joining you with the Sandalwood. I finished the Palmolive and have been using TOBS Sandalwood for the last week.
