Finished.!!

It's nice to see you back for a visit, missed you.
Thanks for that, but don't worry (or do worry), I have just been feeling a little tetchy recently and needed to take a breather. I'm like that old coffee stain at the bottom of the stairs - hard to remove and easily ignored unless you know it's there!;)

Always good to see you posting here.

Finished a small bottle of American Aqua Velva(shatter proof bottle), it is a wonderful AS. Needless to say I got more backups(American big bottle, Spanish version in glass bottle and Italian version in glass rectangular bottle). If I had to make a choice among them, I would choose the American version because it is stronger and scent lasts longer, however Spanish versions comes in the timeless classic glass bottle so ideally Spanish version should finish first so I can decant the American AV in a classic bottle.

Game over for the tub of Arran Aromatics Citrus Bay. What a great cream. Great lather, great shave and great scent. Need to order more together with some more GFT. I see some acquisitions in the near future.

i Coloniali Rituals mango oil shaving soap

It's taken me 19 months to finish this soap (rotated with many other soaps & creams) and what a great soap it was. Easy to make a nice yoghurty lather with slickness and body just right for me. To finish it off I've been using it daily for the last week and it's the kind of soap you don't get tired of. Lightly scented (kind of perfumy) with a touch of menthol. Not too oily and not too drying.

Would I buy it again? Already have. Got a new puck to replace it. Wonder what the new formula will be like now that this has been discontinued.

Body Shop "Arber" ASB

This must have lasted close to 4 years of rotation use. In fact there's a little left in there but when I tried the other day it had gone rancid.
I was one of my favourite ASBs - light, soaks in well, great mild, neutral, kind of earthy scent. I will be replacing it when I use up some of my other ASBs before they go off too.

100ml Tub of Proraso Pre-shave Sandalwood

This has lasted ages in rotation with other pre-shaves. Would I buy it again? - Well probably at some time as it's one of the best I've used and I love the subtle sandalwood scent which is not too strong that it interferes with the soap's scent.
However I've a load of other pre-shaves that need to be used up first before they go rancid. I think the pre-shave oils will last forever and my huge tub of Noxzema Cleansing Cream is great to use (apart from the medical funk smell).
If I get bored with the others I'll probably get another tub of Proraso.

Delivers a lot of sandalwood for relatively little buck, in my opinion.
