I would think some of the soap samples would lather better & easier than the real thing due to it being grated. When/if you order the full product and it doesn't act the same as the sample don't be discouraged. When a triple milled soap gets grated it is easier to load. Many people actually grate hard soaps to make it easier to lather. So in conclusion, I think samples would be better or as good at the original product.
