    Tabac Tuesday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    SlimGem Silvertip Badger
    Gillette Slim L3
    Gillette Super Blue X3
    CWR
    Tabac ASB

    The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with the SlimGem Silvertip Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Slim L3 with a Gillette Super Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    A great brown palette in this kit set up. I am a fan of Semogue brushes and have my eye on that one. Great imagery of the horse reminds of me of my horseback riding long ago!
