Tallow + Steel

Shaving Product Review - Tallow + Steel "West Coast IPA"

Value (Cost, Packaging and Performance)

Lather (Density, Glide and Feel)

Post-shave (Healing, Moisture and Feel)

Scent (Quality, Strength and Longevity)

Each bar has three metrics, each representing 33% of the total (11% = below-avg, 22% = avg, 33% = above-avg, except cost)

Just a quickie FriYAY! post and cheers to all, by way of Tallow + Steel West Coast IPA #soap and #aftershave - with a cameo by Barrister and Mann Fougère Gothique #EdP!

Hang ten, hit the lip, and then chill out and enjoy the hoppy aroma of a freshly poured India Pale Ale.

We have teamed up with three premier beer aficionados from the craft beer capital of the world, San Diego, California, to bring you a limited edition product that captures the aroma of a West Coast style IPA - a perfect balance of hoppy bitterness, pine and citrus.

I've written two very extensive articles on the new line, the first being Meet the All-new Tallow + Steel Products with the follow-up Tallow + Steel 2017 - First Impressions which covers the reformulations and performance (besides other aspects). I also did an extensive review of West Coast IPA that's essentially identical to today's shave. So lots there to check out if you're curious.

Of course, astute readers might notice the little spray bottle of bug juice... Well, that's none other than Barrister and Mann Fougère Gothique EdP that I did a deep-dive first impression of yesterday! So check that out too.

Hardware today was the #TimelessRazor "mild edition" with a #Stork handle and a #PolSilver blade on shave six, a #ThatDarnRob brush that fits the software like none other and of course the #GTP scuttle - the silent start of every shave. Stay tuned next week for a surprise from Timeless Razor!

What more can I add today that I haven't already talked about with these #barristermann and #tallowandsteel products? Not much, except to wish everyone a happy weekend!
