    Depends on which Surrey it was. There are two different Surrey's that I am aware of: a puck that looks identical to VDH Deluxe, and very likely is the exact same thing (Surrey became VDH), and a puck which is tallow based, which is a hard soap much like Vintage Williams.

    I believe HoosierTrooper has both varieties in his arsenal.

    I use Arko to shave my head, so I have gone through a few sticks. Otherwise, I still have most of the soaps I started wet shaving with 18 months or so ago. I keep thinking I'd at least like to get through the tub of Cella, but then I decide to use something else for a while. Meanwhile, I have another tab open with my West Coast Shaving shopping cart, with yet more soaps in it.

    In one year, I finished a puck of Tabac, Arko, and 90% of a puck of MWF.
    Along with that, also a tub of GFT Limes, tube of GFT Sandalwood, and a tube of SIM.

    Shave face and head almost every evening.

    I have finished a puck of Arlington and a puck of AOS Sandalwood. It's very satisfying. Plus you realize quickly if the soap is up to par.

    Indeed! I have finished quite a few.
    We even have the Graveyard thread for finished products. It's sort of a mini-celebration when a product is used up.

    Finished a puck of VDH Deluxe. Working on Col Conk Amber and Thee Fat. I have 15 sticks of Arko and I'll never finish that. At least not for the next several years.

    I finished the first three pucks I bought: Tabac (that took forever), Cella, and Proraso.
    After that my soap collection exploded, making it much more difficult to finish anything.

    I haven't even finished a full sample yet, so I feel your pain.

    I actually just finished a tub of TOBS Avocado the other day and just in time for some Mike's samples to come in (I needed a container to put a sample in so it worked out great).

    Before joining B&B it was vintage Williams soap everyday year in and year out for decades and I have never gave any thought about other shaving soaps/creams. I bought literally tons of vintage Williams without any knowledge of it eventually being bought out by Combe. I admit I am a hoarder in many things . I was so happy then before B&B got me addicted into trying other soaps and creams and this last 16 months it has been C&E shaving creams only. I started with the C&E Nomad tub and just finished the C&E Sandalwood tub and I will be working on the Sienna tub soon after I finish off my Old Spice Indian Shulton Original scent. I stick with what I open and rarely rotate around. Do I get the urge to try other stuff? ..Yes I do and that is why I have been staying away from B&B this last while and there is less temptations as a result I have always been disciplined in sticking and using up what I opened up and as a result I know each product thoroughly well and I enjoy the end result of shaving consistency and predictability = BBS and easier to troubleshoot any inconsistencies which rarely ever happens.

    I think the key is to keep your soap/cream purchases less than your usage. This is theory however, since there are so many good ones out there! Hey, it's better than not having enough selection. Enjoy your shave!
    I could probably load Tabac on a Q-tip and still get a decent lather

    Before I joined here yes. Since then the only thing I finished was a sample of MWF.

    Quite a few. I only use on soap at a time. I imagine it would take forever with several in roatation.

    Yes, I just finished my first puck on Saturday. It only took three months. I doubt I will finish anything currently in rotation in the next year... or two.
