Tallow + Steel

Shaving Product Review - Tallow + Steel "Rainforest"

Today's SOTD marks the second shave with this fine Tallow + Steel offering known as Rainforest #soap and #aftershave!

I've reviewed this exact combo before as well as given first impression of Tallow + Steel so I won't get too much into it again here. Suffice to say, the performance was top notch... With 30s of loading, the soap made more than enough lather that was dense, creamy and slick. I can clearly dial the loading back a bit to 25s or so. Face feel was lovely, and was further improved by the aftershave...

The important thing I found today was that any and all tackiness experienced previously was entirely due to the weather and not the aftershave itself. Today is a cooler day with no humidity and there was none to found, even applying more than enough. So I definitely suggest going easy on the aftershave in high heat/humidity, as I did originally. The scent is awesome, but alas, didn't stick around too long for me today either.

Hardware wise, the usual suspects... The #StandardRazors razor with a fresh #PolSilver blade, #BSB Shaving Brush and #GTP scuttle, which kept it all together and warm for the duration.

An awesome shave with this great offering from #tallowandsteel! My face feels super smooth, soft and supple. I'll be giving Dark another go soon... Stay tuned!
