That's good to hear. I am rocking a beard right now, so I mostly just shave my neck, cheeks and corners of my lips. Needless to say I am really stretching my razor usage now as I shave less beard and do so less often. I usually shave the beard in late spring/Summer though. I have tried a few different glycerine soap brands. Currently I am using Col. Conk's and it is pretty nice.
Good to hear that some of you have benefited from this old thread.
