Before I started regularly reading B&B I finished some soaps from Razorock. At least 3 Frescos, and a XXX. Now I have open tubs of RR Don Marco, Son of Zeus, XX, Nervous Wreck, and Fresco. Also have some KOTC Lime and Brain Freeze that I haven't tried yet so not sure if that counts as "active". Not to mention a tube of COB, a tub of CF Lime, a new ceramic dish of MWF, and about 20 samples from Garry (DRH, TOBS). I have some work cut out for me...

Recently I finished a puck of Erasmic Black bowl soap, Col Conk Amber and I'm well on the way to finishing a puck of Wilkinson Sword Blue bowl.
Also finished a few creams, Eramic, Real Shaving Co, T&H West Indian lime.
Sure I own Merkur razors.....I use them too. Member of 'Alliance of Merkur' also BOTOC
Mama Bear's Cilantro Lime Iced & Mikes Bay Rum with only couple shaves left with Stirling's Frozen Tundra
I've been shaving with only 1 soap (or cream) until it's finished for some time. I get much better shaves after I've been using a product exclusively for a week or 2. These different products really do have idiosyncrasies. Getting a good creamy lather from TOBS soap is quite different from Cella. But a week or 2 with no other variables makes a noticeable improvement in results. I often see post that a soap or a cream yields poor lather and wonder how many consecutive shaves with that product were completed before the negative pronouncement was made...
Plus, it does result in actually finishing soaps--I have finished many soaps and creams. For you businessmen and logisticians, my inventory costs are way down.
I haven't even finished a sample soap puck. I move around too much with all the choices I have. On a good note, I believe I finished a few Tobs cream samples from Maggard's.
