    Difference Between a Cream and a Soap?

    Thread Starter: LeoL

    Hey guys, what is the underlying physical difference between a shaving cream and a shaving soap? Are they both saponified fats, with just varying degrees of water? I think there must be more to it than that. What makes a cream a cream, and not a soap? A soap a soap, and not a cream? Thanks for any...

    Stroppe Shoppe expiration

    Thread Starter: 1Vader

    I bought one recently and it says best by June 2016. I don't think I'll be able to finish this by that time, I still have other soaps I rotate and use. I'd like to buy more Stroppe Shoppe cause I liked the ingredients, 2 butters, tallow and lanolin which was just wow; But if this soap expires...

    Going through and trying out different blades is a long and drawn out process.

    Thread Starter: augusto

    Tabac liquefying?

    Thread Starter: Rotflmao

    Has anyone had a problem with their Tabac liquefying? My Tabac is a little over a year old and I use it every couple of weeks. Lately the centre is becoming more of a cream than a soap. I don't think I'm leaving excessive water on it and I've never had this problem with Proraso or Cella. It...

    Which blade did you toss today? After how many uses?

    Thread Starter: Eaaqas

    This thread is similar to the "which blade did you use today?" thread. I'm interested in seeing average blade life. No worries if you are a "throw away after 2 days no matter what" person.. :) We'll see if this catches on.. Super Platinum (4)
