Taconic Shave Eucalyptus Mint Shaving Soap

One would think that with the Covid19 lock downs; one would have more time to write.  Personally, I’m finding the opposite to be the case.  Not sure about you, but working remotely (for me at least) means the work is always there.  So, I find myself dedicating more time on my day job.  Plus, there are the never ending home improvement projects that seem to now have more urgency.  Even after the weight of some of that gets lifted a part of you may sometimes sit in front of the computer and just come up blank.   Well … those are my excuses at least. 


One of my SOTDs with the Taconic Eucalyptus Mint Shave Soap

Regardless, I figured that it’s a new year, time for new habits … and time for a new post.  I’ve reached into the archives to find posts that I started but never finished.  One of which is the Taconic Eucalyptus Mint Shave Soap.   

Updated since I purchased mine: the latest (as of this writing) packaging design. 

It looks like the packaging has been updated since I purchased and first started using it.  But the ingredients appear to have stayed the same.  Which I view as a good thing.   This is a soap I really like; most notably its smell.  I find the aroma opening the tin to be pretty powerful.   I’d open the canister about a foot or so away from my nose and I’m met with a scent reminiscent of Vicks VapoRub with a little bit more mint added.   Personally, this is a scent I enjoy that scent very much. 

The soap puck.  As you can tell, mine has been through a few lathers

To my nose, the scent isn’t as powerful when lathering.  I can definitely smell it, but it isn’t as overwhelming as when the canister is first opened.   It washes away pretty clean as well and I find that the scent doesn’t linger around.  There are some lotions, soaps, or shaving creams that can have an over powering aroma or scent that it gives me a slight headache.  I didn’t find that to be the case with this Taconic Eucalyptus Mint shave soap.

An enjoyable lather.

The soap is a puck measuring roughly 3 inches in diameter. Lather-wise, I get a nice, thick, and protective lather from it.  I’ve been using the soap off and on for a while.  It’s been with me to Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania.  I find it easy to build a lather with the Taconic Eucalyptus Mint shave soap even with the different water types of those states.   Maybe 2021 will bring opportunities to try to different shaving soaps, creams, razors, blades, and what have you in different parts of the states or even world.   Here’s to hoping.
