I really forgot just how much I love this soap! Beautiful lather, super SUPER rich and creamy, generated with total ease, and a very delightful scent! I am can't believe I waited so long to replace my last tub - I will NEVER let that happen again.
Tabac shaving soap comes in a gorgeous box with a clear pastic front.
Tabac soap is a generous 4.4oz. With the amount of lather generated from this soap, and the hardness of this soap - you certainly could get a years use out of this soap. Very reasonably priced.
The soap comes beautifully and securely packaged. I dunno why, but I like when packaging is intelligent and attractive, it heightens the experience.
Secure base inside of packaging
The heavy, thick ceramic bowl/lid that comes with this soap is very luxurious. It really adds a royal feeling to the experience.
Beautifully crafted lid. The fit and finish is superb - certainly no rickety fit like the british stuff.

Ready to rock
Check out the loaded brush in the background. Only 8 swirls on the cake of soap generated enough lather to coat my hand in one swipe and would certainly be enough later for 4-5 passes.
This lather is so thick, rich and creamy it is almost a solid! Really beautiful stuff. Provides an exceptionally close shave with no irritation.
I got 2 cakes of Haslinger shaving soap from shavemac with the tabac soap - so I'll try to use/review/and post pics of it next week sometime!
