I've been thinking about getting a bowl of the new Panna Crema Nuavia but just couldn't justify the price.  Today I figured what the heck.  I added it to my cart and realized shipping was a whopping $18 to get it to the U.S.  Well, a few hours ago I started thinking about their free shipping at 100 euros.  So, I went back and added a second bowl of Nuavia.  That way I could get one of each.  That only came out to 80 euros.  So, about an hour ago I went ahead and added a tub of Namaste and a tub of Vetiver totaling 102 euros, about $115 american.  I did it!!!!  I got free shipping and saved so much money LOL!!!!  It's funny how some of us can justify buying more to save a little on shipping.  Granted I saved a little money by getting free shipping, but wound up spending about $60 more than I should have.  It's all good.  It just kind of made me laugh how I kept justifying what I was doing just because I really wanted to buy something new.  Man I love this hobby  Smile !!

I bought direct from Panna Crema.  The free shipping wasn't so free so to speak ha ha!

You will not regret it. I did the same thing last month, except I purchased three Nuavia to get me over the hump. I had intended to sell one, but after trying each one for the first time, this rocketed to a top three soap for me. I reach for it more than anything else now.

High school I began my fascination with British made automobiles and the foibles of Lucas, laird of darkness, calling stuff spanners, boots and spelling things like TYRES in my English classes( actually a holdover from 3 years C of E parochial school). I couldn't afford the Detroit muscle cars and was content outhandling my peers on our many famous canyon roads and almost running Charlie Manson over one night.
Brother copies my interest but decides he knows more about restoring 60 spoke high performance wire wheels with Pirelli radials VS my 48 spoke with  KMART 2ply nylon
bias @ $18 each. He promptly orders one 'Wire Wheel Spanner' and 'tyre rim tape' from England at considerable expense. They finally arrive. I decide to show him my SNAP ON
tube shock absorber wrench @ $3 VS some Birmingham best iron thing stamped Whitworth and 3M black electrician's tape- identical to the roll of 3m black electricians tape in my hand. He gets mad, decides to 'tune' his own spokes by ear vs the machine truing fee at the local bike shop.
We go out one Sunday onto Malibu Canyon Road. Brother pushes the wheel geometry beyond the frame load and spokes start snapping like pasta. He limps home at a safe and sane 20 MPH in first gear. 
Vintage European cars became fashionable when smog and safety bumpers killed muscle. Many restoration parts houses popped up charging high fees for tyre rim wrapping  tape. I would just pop in on Phil Hill's restoration shop and buy or trade all kinds of fascinating stuff we had accumulated.
Moral to long story- check with BULLGOOSE if he plans to ever carry something first.

Well, I'm like Veruca from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. "I want my soap and I want it now!"

I confess; trying KENDALLS MINTCAKE as carried to the summit by Sir Edmund and Tenzing was on my culinary bucket (scuttle) list, only I kept getting beat for one of the 24 individual bars a Brit import shop brought in during Xmas each year So, I ordered the big family sized bar @ $9 and paid $10 SH.

The flaw in instant gratification is how LONG you have to make up the difference later.

Ugh. I just bought 1 of each and payed shipping. Didn't see the $100 free.

I'm sure it would have motivated me to save money on shipping Smile

I hear ya'.  But, I will use the 4 soaps that I bought, I didn't pay shipping, I'll have it in about a week, and I wouldn't be paying any less if Phil or any American vendor happens to start carrying it. Win Win!!

I've had the Nuavia Blu for ten days and used three times, so far. First shave went well, however, second and third gave a mild burning sensation. It's a wonderful scent that lingers long after shaving.
