Look at this! An almost finished container of shaving cream. Ever seen such a thing before?

Will I make it to September? Well, not to worry, because I have a new one ready to go—but I'm switching to the soap instead of the cream. I seem to like soaps better.

I’ve gotten to the bottom of the a once, TOBS Sandalwood cream. Since switching to soaps, I accumulate them too quickly & rotate between soaps to get to the bottom of any tub.

Well, I guess it didn't make it.  Today was my last shave from this jar.  I thought it might get through to September, especially since I super lather with another cream.  However, this is a cream, and they don't seem to last as long as the soaps.

Even with 200-300 creams and soaps in my collection, getting to the bottom of a cream is not that special, once you have been in this game for 7-8 years and counting.

I get 25-30 shaves from most creams and the double from most soaps.

I’m a heavy loader.

Ohh and yes creams do sometimes turn rancid, so think about that when/if you buy lots of creams. I’m at a point now where I will never buy a cream again, only soaps.

Not only because I prefer soaps in general now, but because the harder the soap the longer the shelf life.

I tossed a one time used Acqua Di Parma shaving cream last week. I bought that in 2014. It was rancid. The older now discontinued Acqua Di Parma shaving cream, which is called Colonia, is a harder more croap like cream and it still is in fine condition even though I bought that in 2011.

I've replaced it with their soap.  I'm slowly switching to only soaps.  And (with a few exceptions) unscented soaps.

I'm definitely a heavy loader.  I just love having tons of lather.
