I grabbed my Palmolive Stick for the next week or two; it's also pretty creamy lather. I'm glad I have 7 or so sticks in a closet since it was apparently discontinued.

Are you planning on stocking up?

I considered it when the post first came up because I could shave with it almost full-time. But no, I think 7 sticks will suffice for me, considering the size of my 'inventory'. I mean, I have 7 B&M tubs and 3 AoS tallow pucks, plus 26 other soaps/creams.

Very true. I see the prices have increased dramatically since the announcement. One of the appeals was the budget friendly price tag.

I agree about it being formerly budget friendly. I can't think of a better soap at under a dollar (I paid £0.49 at a London Tesco in 2014). Some would tell me Arko but I was never a fan, even putting aside the scent.

Today was my last day with Palmolive... Not because it's gone, but because after a month I finally am ready for something new.

I think it's time to hop from one favorite directly to another -- B&M Latha Oceana.

I'm still plodding along with RazoRock Santa Maria Del Fiore. I like the scent and the light menthol kick. The menthol i done absolutely right. The performance is just okay. I find that using it with a DE, I get good results. For my straight razors, I could really use better performance. The lather also has some small pieces of soap. No matter how much I work the lather, I always have a few pieces.

I am also ready for something else. I will be using a big boar for the rest of it's shaves. That should speed things up.

I honestly believe the RR and TFS soaps with lanolin have NO slickness whatsoever.
Much better without. Ymmv.
