Absolutely agree - very simple to lather to a rich cream, but it still lacks too many of the properties I want for a good shave. As such, it's very good for washing new brushes. I won't miss it when it's gone, I'll just move on to another less-than soap in my stash.
I really enjoy LPL, the longer I leave it to cure in open air, the better it has been performing. It has slightly crystallised and works up a thick rich cushioned lather. It could do with more slickness though.
