Back to basics - creams or soaps?

There's something very satisfying about lathering with soaps. Some are quite a challenge, and if you lather on the puck then directly on to your face the whole thing can get messy and be a bit of hit and miss. Sometimes I swirl awhile on the puck then continue in a bowl - then there's even more washing up! But results can be exceptional.

Creams are different. Much easier to work with and I get more consistent results. Sometimes I wonder why I bother with soaps at all.

Then after a few days with creams, I fancy another session with soaps.

So it goes on!

Variety is the spice of life I guess.
