Just like with any shaving product on the marketplace today, their legions of fans that love it, and some who aren’t keen about this shaving product.
On the average, Tabac shaving soap is indeed on the expensive side when compared to other top rated shaving soaps we have looked at.
While we consider it an excellent product and heartily recommend it, we also suggest you first get the smallest puck you can find, and see how it works for your skin type, before investing in a larger $32 tub.
With this shaving soap, the scent always seems to be the issue. From our rating scale, we give it a 3.5 out of 5 when it comes to the scent.
Despite the average scent rating, those wet shavers that do enjoy using this product are indeed rabid loyal followers, based on the hundreds of passionate reviews they leave online.
From the online reviews of Tabac shaving soap from existing customers, those with razor burning or irritation are happy with this product.
The shaving soap is able to rise off quickly, thus leaving the skin properly moisturized, before shaving.
The Tabac Shave Soap makes a thick lather that can be dense and slick, as compared to others we have tested.
It is this slick denseness that allows your straight razor to glide effortlessly through, instantly removing all the unwanted facial hair.
Tabac shaving soap is also made to work well with any brand of safety razors. We found the scent to be mild and not overbearing or too much.
Due to the scent, you might experience some irritation from first use, especially if you have sensitive skin. This irritation should subside as you continue to use the shaving soap.
While the Tabac shaving soap is created to work with both straight razors and safety razors, the majority of the users that liked the product were using straight razors.
As you know, shaving with a straight razor is an acquired taste, and indeed a longer process to get the most comfortable shave.
