Hard shaving soaps

I sometimes wonder why I bother with hard shaving soaps. They seem to require too much effort and take just too long to use compared with creams. When I face lather, perhaps I lack the patience to build a satisfactory lather. I sometimes lather hard soaps in a bowl with success but it is much simpler and more effective to put a decent portion of cream in the bowl instead. These days I prefer the softer soaps like Martin de Candre, Palmolive and Arko. Much easier to lather with. And the latter two are remarkable value.
