Same recipe, different FO

The soap that I feel is drying on the skin was made August 1st. The good batch was made two days later. I ran the recipe through soapcalc and MMS's lye calculator and lye amounts are ok.

Maryann, other than touching the soap to my tongue (can't do this :tongue2: ) and using pH strips, how else can I tell if it's lye heavy?

I used the same recipe but 2 different FO's for CP soap. Is it possible for one soap to be drying (skin feels tight after shower) and the other ok? Or am I imagining things? :D

My sister and I occasionally have skin reactions to particular FO's - maybe that's going on. Also, if you've only tried the one time, I've noticed that some days my water may be dramatically different in quality - i.e. poorer than usual - which makes a difference too.
