OK, gentlemen, I picked up a puck of Haslinger seaweed shaving soap on a trip to NYC in late May. I have used it exactly twice. It lathers beautifully and provides a wonderfully protective lather. I can't get past the scent. No, it doesn't smell like seaweed. It has a seaweed extract in it that is reportedly really good for soothing the skin of your face.
Truly it is a perfectly good, wonderful soap. The scent is not offensive, and there may be some who will like it. I just don't. I have enough soaps that I don't need to keep this one.
So, I'm going to give it away to one of you.
Here are the rules. In this post I'm going to put a picture of what's left of a puck of Mama Bear's Spicey Lime shaving soap. For reasons not clear to me, I counted how many times I shaved with this soap. Only a tiny rim of soap remains (to be fair, it got to a rim of soap once before and I melted it in the microwave and then used it till it was a rim again). I lathered it each and every time with the same brush, which is an Omega boar brush. I approached this soap with a fairly dry brush each time. (These are all hints to help you out.)
All you have to do is guess how many shaves I got out of the soap. Whoever is closest to the actual number wins the Haslinger soap. Doesn't matter if you are over or under; closest wins. In the event of a tie, I will flip a coin. If more than one person ties, I'll use random.org to choose a winner.
