Thanks to Phil for giving this his blessing. I'd like to setup a soap and cream trading thread. I think we've all bought soaps and creams we didn't care much for and just later sold it. Here's an opportunity to trade it for something you like (or something you think you'd like)

Here's one I'd like to trade TRADED thanks Texbilly

RazoRock No.888 Eucalyptus Artisan Shaving Soap- I liked it, but it's just too close to Proraso and CO Bigelow for me. I'd like to trade it for RazoRock King Louis
Cyril Salter Fresh Mint
Nancy Boy Replenishing
Either RazoRock Boston Tea Party or RazoRock Third Eye

Great idea. I don't have any of those items to trade but I just wanted to say that I would've never guessed the texture of RR 888. Seems a lot wetter than their LEA line.

What does the Vetiver Smell like?

It is more of a cream than a croap.

I have an unopened tube of c.o. bigelow that I'd be willing to trade. I have two other tubes, I REALLY don't need three.

I have a once used tube of c.o. bigelow and a puck of L'occitane Cade still in the wrapper.

I also have a few kiss my face creams but you can get those everywhere.

I guess pm if you're interested in the cade because everyone has the bigelow.

Excellent idea, Dave! i wish i had some soaps to trade, but most of the soaps you gentlemen have have too many ingredients in them for me to use. i tend to use the most naturally made and simplest ingredients' list.
Have fun!

I'd love to trade for some Cade Soap if anyone has an extra puck. I'm sure I could find a few things lying around someone might enjoy. Please PM me if you have a spare puck you'd trade for something of mine.

I've got the following to trade:

Edwin Jagger soap (Aloe Vera) - used (see photo).
Art of Shaving Lemon Pre-Shave Oil (travel size) - new & unused.
Trumpers GFT Cream sample - unused.

[Image: soap001.jpg]

I'm happy to trade anything for them.

I would prefer to try some soaps or creams which are relatively difficult (or sometimes impossible) to get hold of in the UK such as Devon and Spencer cream, Razorock (non-Menthol), I Coloniali, La Toja, Taconic, Portman Square, Valobra (Almond), Speick, Osma, Haslinger or Dr Ditmar etc, but am open to offers.

Please bear in mind that I live in the UK so postage costs and delivery times would be different to CONUS shipping.

I used that a few months ago when I first got into wet shaving, but since it's so readily available, I don't use it all that often.

I have a tub (4 oz) of Art of Shaving shave cream in lavender that I've used twice. I'm looking to trade it because I also received a tub of Castle Forbes lavender which I like slightly better. Looking for creams, anything except Musgo Real, La Toja (both regular and sensitive), Veleiro, I Coloniali, Vulfix Persian Spice, and Speick, all of which are already in my rotation.

I have a couple soaps I've decided just aren't for me that I would like to trade.

What I have:
Cella, used a few times, I'd say 85-90% remaining - traded
Gold Dachs Rivivage Flake soap in bowl, used twice - traded
