Buy now it may not be there tomorrow at Tabor Keetons!
TaborKeeton.com sells limited shaving products, in other words, What they make today may not be for sale tomorrow or the next day. In my opinion this is the mark of a true craftsman. producing great shave soaps to keep it fresh is what keeps shavers like me coming back for more. It means their website has fresh content and if you are a fan which may be the case after reading this review, you might find yourself checking their website periodically to see what’s new.
I found Tabor Keeton on Etsy.com and was attracted to their product by the bright red container the after shave balm came in. I said to my self, this looks interesting and contacted them through email. Their response time was quick and I got a very friendly email by them and I knew I made the right decision. Before I knew it, my package of Tabor Keeton products was waiting for me to review.
The lime scent shaving puck from Tabor Keeton was initially very strong. As soon as I unwrapped it the strong aroma died down instantly leaving behind a nice lime aroma that I’ve very quickly came to appreciate. I’ve had this happen with many of the shaving products I’ve gotten through the mail. I think that the aroma builds up in the container because it has no where else to go until its unwrapped and the strong aroma dissipates quickly.
The lime scented shaving puck from TaborKeeton.com is small enough to fit in one of my older containers dedicated to shaving soap. Make no mistake, just because the shaving puck from TaborKeeton.com is smaller it does not mean that you get less for your money. Tabor Keeton sends a letter with his product explaining you only need an almond size piece of his lime scented shave soap to get a good lather.
I didn’t cut off an almond size amount of the shave soap to test this out. It did however only take three good swirls of my shave brush to get a good lather started, I transferred the lather to my shave bowl and continued to build the lather into a thick rich lather that was plenty for my dome and my face. I would say less than what he stated is needed to get a great shave. The lather rested evenly on my dome with a good cushion but I still felt the razor shaving the hair away but with zero irritation, it was more of a dull feeling. there was zero irritation, nicks, cuts, or scrapes afterwards. The thick rich lather did not dry out during shaving and I did not have to re-lather during my shave which made my shaving ritual faster. The shaving brush I choose had softer bristles with a wide coverage area. My shaving brush soaked up the lather and delivered it to my dome nicely. I’m impressed with Tabor Keeton’s lime shaving soap and will soon acquire more for shaving.
The shave balm is nice and thick!
Tabor Keeton’s aftershave balm is nice and thick and covers you dome and face nicely, meaning, you need less for more coverage. It doesn’t contain alcohol so it doesn’t burn or sting. The aftershave balm by TaborKeeton.com moisturizes at the same time so you could use it for both an aftershave balm and a moisturizer and save some time in the bathroom simply because you just apply it once and it accomplishes two tasks. There is a slight greasiness at first after applying the aftershave balm. It quickly soaks into the skin leaving your dome fresh and ungreasy. It also comes in this bright red container so if you’re a fan of bright red this is right up your alley.
