I did something similar last year for Tabactober and it was pretty cool. The rules are simple, pick a soap or cream and use it for the whole month of March. I know this is nothing for the 3017'rs, but for the rest of us it can be a challenge. Will boredom set in? Will your other soaps cry for attention? It's just one month, geez. Haven't finished a soap in a while and I'd like to put a dent into something. Who's with me? Comment in the thread that you are in and tell us which soap you will be using.

I recently purchased the travel pack of C&S No. 88 with the 3 smaller pucks. This will be a good time try this scent for the first time and hopefully finish one of the pucks.

Max, great choice. The Haslinger pucks seem like the perfect size for a month effort.

It'll be a fun month. I get around 35-40 shaves from a puck. It will be interesting to see if others join in and their reactions to the month. I used to rotate soaps left and right but get much more satisfaction dialing in and working through a soap one at a time now. Thanks for getting us started Rob...it doesn't get any better than Czech & Speake.

I'm in with a puck of AoS Sandalwood.  It doesn't hurt that I've been using this until it dies... for the last year+.

A nice selection, but this does not seem like a challenge at all! How about picking just one?  Biggrin

If you had asked me to do this last year I would have jumped on board but I am wrapping up an experiment of using one soap - beginning to end - and my other poor soaps are crying out for attention.

It's still only mid-February. Plenty of time to wrap up your experiment and use a few soaps before March  Wink

I will add to the challenge, along with my Arko Soap, I will use just one after shave and one razor.  The only thing that will change is the brush I use.
