Snake Bite mentholated tallow soap from Fine Accoutrements. These are some excellent soaps.

My soap of the day for the next 3 or 4 weeks will be Tabac stick. I love it!

Finished up the Tabac's allotted time in the annual rotation today. To date the stick has yielded 70 shaves, probably about halfway to being used up. Legendary product.

For the next 2 weeks or so I'll be using the Asylum Vetiver Bourbon tallow shaving soap. The label says "crazy good shaving soap". I say that's a great description.

Wilkinson Sword soap (in the blue bowl) plus Nivea Moisturizing Shaving Cream.
A combo that smells way better than either of the ingredients alone.

Oct 26: TOBS Eton College - and I finally finished off the tub.
It's been in my soap/cream rotation for almost exactly 2 years (ordered Oct 17, 2017).
It was nice enough, but I think I'll try a different scent to replace it. So far "Mr Taylors" is my favourite TOBS.

Oct 27: Williams Mug.
I decided that added glycerin doesn't do much for it. It's fine as is.

Lately I've been using Mike's Natural soaps, alternating between Vetiver and Lime. These are good soaps. No suds, just the creamy and bountiful lather that's protective and slick.

Fendrihan's "Aloe Water", from a 5 g sample jar.
Texture is a bit softer than a Proraso croap.
Whatever scent it has is pretty faint, but it performed fairly well.

The AOS Sandalwood cream finished up the run today. It'll be about a year before it comes back up.
