Tabac Shaving Products Ruled Out....

Thank goodness for Westcoast Shaving Supplies for posting up the ingredients list for Tabac shaving soaps and creams. When you have sensitive skin, you have to look at the ingredients listed on the packages and containers of shaving products. Westcoast Shaving Supplies are one of my all time favorite suppliers. They often place the ingredients list underneath most of their products which is a very good thing for those of us that have sensitive skin because it lets us know wether or not we can use that product without having a really bad reaction. Tabac shaving products have a really strong reputation. The first thing I noticed was that Tabac has alot and I do mean an excessive amount of perfumes listed in the igredients list. One of the things that I've learned the hard way over the years was to avoid any and all products that have alot of or excessive amounts of perfumes, fragrances, fragrance oils, and alcohol. Some sensitive skin products can't be used because they one or more of these ingredients. Another thing that came up alot in the reviews about Tabac's shaving products was the scent. While some say they tolerate it due to its performance, others avoid Tabac because of it. That's a red flag to me. They say Tabac's scent won't run people off but in my humble opinion, if people are already avoiding it because of the scent then my guess is that it can run people out of the room. It's a really contradicting situation with Tabac's shaving products. They say it peforms really good but unfortunately, I won't get that chance to try it out. Another problem that I seen with Tabac's products was that they intend to dry out really fast and can take an excessive amount of water through out the shave. While hydration is one of the keys to a good shave, this is not good for Tabac's products in terms of post shave quality. If their stuff dries out quickly, then you'll be forced to rush your shave which can damage and irritate your skin quite severely. It ruins the zen like experience of the shave. The biggest thing that also went against Tabac's shaving products was the price point. The jar of Tabac shave cream costs start at $20 bucks. If you just get the refill soap, then it lowers it to $18 bucks. That is not cheap at all. In fact that is 1/3 higher than Taylor of Old Bond Street's shaving products and you still don't get anywhere near what you'd get from Taylor of Old Bond Street either. So for me, I have ruled out Tabac's shaving products. Sorry Tabac, but you need to reformulate your shaving products.
