Tabactober 2020

>> TABACTOBER <<

20201011_112721-01.jpeg

Preshave: frigid tap water
Brush: Yaqi Tuxedo Synthetic 28/58
Soap: Mäurer & Wirtz ~ Tabac
Razor: Mühle Rocca R94
Blade: Wilkinson Sword Germany (1)
Postshave: frigid tap water, Stirling Soap Orange Chill Witch hazel & post shave balm.

Just another excellent TABAC shave.
 
By coincidence I am currently using this soap, bought to make an Amazon order post free. At last, a cheaper soap that DOES deserve its high regard. I've not tried Cella however........

Brush - Omega 11819 (24 mm/55 mm)
Soap - Tabac Stick
Razor - Old Type
Blade - Lancet Super Platinum (7)
Post - Witch Hazel
AS - Barbon

Two weeks in for just using Tabac & boar brushes, the last week using a LSP blade in an Old Type/Souplex razor and for the last four days or so I'd say the skin on my face feels the best it has for a while.

October 15:

I fancied a change today. The weather is still warm enough, so I went with Aqua Velva. I also broke out my Omega 011842. It is an excellent brush, but after many uses my copy is now shedding quite a bit (3-6 bristles per shave). The rest of the setup was the same, Gillette New LC, Personna Lab Blue (14) and of course Tabac.

Happy shaves and have a great day! :)

It's time! :w00t:

I don't have the discipline to 3017 a soap, but I can use one for a month. In my quest to actually use up the soaps I have, that's my M.O. - one month, one soap - and October is for Tabac.

If you want to join me, just post here (or don't). Even if you just want to use Tabac in October rather than for October, feel free to add a SOTD post. All uses of Tabac products qualify, whether that's shave soap, bath soap, EDT, mouthwash, car air freshener or pet shampoo.

. . .

:badger:
Wait. There's a Tabac car air freshener?
