Finished a tube of original formulation Erasmic this morning. No more of this stuff, alas. Sustained on using up some of my vast collection of creams... Ingram's first, then Musgo Real Lime Basil....must try harder!
i've got a couple of tube of original formulation. let me know if you want em or do a swap for summit
Am away for a few days but should be able to get online to pm etc
cheers
I see quiet a lot of the red top old metal tubes on the bay for peanuts, are they still making these in Jordan so we have a UK (Crap) and Jordan (Good) mix stock here in the UK?

I don't like to derail the finish thread but just a quick question about Erasmic.

We have the sticks in the shops for about £0.65 but it is not even touching the Palmolive in term of slickness and thickness, I understand that the stick also gone a few reformulations, but they did a U turn four years ago, and gone back to beef extract.

My question is: the sticks in the shops has tallow written on the box but it is a crap product compare to the Palmolive and their own bowl (which is very nice), was the stick before the reformulation and subsequent U turn better than the current tallow version?

Regarding the tubes I would be wary of the eBay products. I think they are using old images. Check first (easiest way is to ask which cap they have). I haven't used the stick so I can't answer that one I'm afraid.

That's a very generous offering. However I think I need to concentrate on reducing my stockpile of creams. My wardrobe resembles the studio of a deranged artist with half finished tubes all over the place. Thanks again for the offer

What did you think of the fitjar mate?

Finished a tub of eShave unscented Shaving Cream this morning.
I bought it about 2 and a half years ago and it was my first ever shaving cream that required a brush.
It sat lonely for quite a while after I discovered scents but the addition of menthol crystals and, more recently, some Lavender EO gave it a new lease of life.
It's an excellent cream but over-priced for what it is. It won't be replaced.

Next I think I will work on clearing down some of the random samples I have lying around. Santa Maria Novella is 1st on the hitlist.

My little red tub of Cella got emptied this morning. I have another one, but I think I'll work on something different for a while. Haven't decide what, though.
