...like the idea and creativity; it works for Hampshire Soaps and I appreciated letter box friendly packaging. I would also like the option of buying an empty or full branded tub and bottle and/or sticky labels, so that I could re-fill if I chose...

Even up to an inch could be packaged in a slimline box to fit through practically every letterbox. Think how BT do it with their Home Hubs.

Wickham's first Super Smooth were in very wide, slim tubs. I rather liked them:

^ these were over 6" wide and under 1" thick.

Frags and balms? Yeah, flask-like bottles.

I think you're there with your thinking but don't obsess too much about the large letter size. Unless you went for very slim bladders for flat packing liquid/balm there'd be no advantage. Also, remember that a large but thin surface is vulnerable to piercing, and that's not some thing you want with flammable liquids.

Think a little bigger, but still letterbox size.

Just my two pence worth,
Personally I am happy to pay more for a quality product and nice packaging.
I am a sucker for a nice design on a tub and I know that I have brought things just because they look nice on my table etc.
So in short unless I am paying £20 postage to receive an item that I paid £4, I don't have a problem as I am used to it with other purchases not shave related.
