I acquired a new foil wrapped puck of this stuff in a trade.
I opened it up and parked it in my VDH bowl... lathered her up and had one of my best shaves yet! WOW!
Let me say first of all.....Tabac lathers like nobodys business! Holy smokes! The lather was silky, thick, and slippery. In fact I was so blown away by the initial results... I washed off my brush and cleaned out my bowl....to see if I could repeat this magic again. Yep.....same results! I created lather that could have easily held up to a 4 or 5 pass shave.
On to the shave.....using my Omega Pro I slathered this awesome thick lather all over my face. The razor was slipping and sliding away. Zero tugging, zero skipping, and zero irritation. I completed my typical 2 pass shave and was left with BBS.
This will be in the rotation for life. Cella was the top of the heap in my den but after this Tabac shave .... there will be a showdown.
I am pretty neutral about the smell. I dont dislike it nor am I absolutely crazy about it. It is best described as "pleasant". I dont really care because the performance is A+.
If you have been avoiding Tabac ..... do yourself a favor and pick up some.
