    Stoylin Glacial Obsidian was the first frozen soap I saw you be exicted about. Well, you had a different name then, but your style remains the same

    Greetings,

    A near 'Nivea Men' shave. The 'Originals' cream is superb, only a small almond size amount was needed to create a wonderful slick lather for my shave.

    The 1950's Gillette Ball End Tech is such smooth comfortable shaver pairing together with the Super-Max Blue Diamond Titanium wonderfully, making a superb razor & blade combo. The Super-Max Blue Diamond Titanium are such a smooth efficient blade.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Cien Aloe Vera Body Lotion.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Tabac Tuesday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shaving Soap
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    Gillette Techmatic
    Techmatic Band
    CWR
    Humphrey's Witch Hazel

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the SlimGem Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Techmatic and the Techmatic Band Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning:

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 7
    MSC Vintage Spice SS
    Aveeno Moisturizer
    MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

    This morning I was supposed to use another Glacial setup but I’ll save that for another time this week so instead I opted for the Vintage Spice soap and aftershave so I could get that gorgeous Shulton Old Spice scent that I love so much. What a great shave this was!

    Have a good day - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Hi Jim
    Tabac is something I absoleutley have to try at some point. I've committed myself to using what I have and not make any shaving related purchases in 2023. Have to say that Tuesdays are a temptation with all these fantastic Tabac shaving photos!

    Don't wait too long. Tabac no longer makes the original tallow formula. But some vendors may still have some left. ;)

    Prep: Hot towel
    Razor: Merkur 34C HD
    Blade: Polsilver S.I
    Brush: Romera Manchurian 30/50 Fan
    Soap: Ariana & Evans | Khalifa (K2e)
    Post: CeraVe moisturising lotion..

    an absolutely stunning shave.. the K2e performed faultlessly, as expected, and the 34C / Super Iridium is, for me, one of the finest razor/blade combinations that you can get. Yeah, a fantastic shave.
