My order from WCS came in.
I ordered Tabac shave soap in a bowl, 7'Oclock blades (yellow), Old Dominica Bay Rum Lime AS, and Thayer's Witch Hazel.
I used the Tabac and Thayer's this morning for my shave.
I soaked my brush and added about a tablespoon of hot water to the top of the puck. I did my usual shower routine with conditioner. I kept my face hot and wet as I loaded and lathered with the Tabac. What a great, thick and slick lather! I did a WTG, XTG, and ATG passes.
No nicks or cuts. No irritation. I rinsed with hot then warm then cold water. Then I applied the Thayer's.
That stuff is fantastic! It has a pleasant enough smell. No alcohol = no sting!!! Then I applied my Brut AS balm.
Scent-wise, I (and my wife) like the scent of the Tabac. The scent of the shave soap lasted as long as the AS balm, about 3-4 hours.
Tabac is powerful smelling, so I can see why some may not like it. I think it smells very spicy and of unsmoked tobacco. I am considering getting the cologne since I like the smell of the soap so much.
I like the Tabac's lubrication quality better than the AoS Sandalwood cream that I have.
The Thayer's WH that I have has aloe vera and isn't unscented. I can't tell what the scent is, but it is very light and pleasant.
I am getting a good 4-7 shaves out of the Shark chrome blades.
