Taconic - Eucalyptus Mint

I found the lather of this Taconic sample to be kinda so-so. When mixed to the thickness I liked, it had a few stability problems, and didn’t really last a full pass, about 2/3rds of a pass before it was visibly fading. This was rectified by adding some water, but it had thinned out a fair amount as a result. It doesn’t seem to have a very wide sweet spot with regards to acceptable water content. On the moisturization front, it was perhaps a bit above average.

The scent is a nice enough mint smell; I can’t really tell about the Eucalyptus in there or not. There’s definitely some noticeable cooling going on as a result of the mint. It’s not too strong, but a nice decent baseline that doesn’t really fade during the shave.

  • 8/10 Scent Pleasantness
  • 8/10 Scent Strength
  • 7/10 Lather Quality

Overall, I’m going to give it a 6/10. Personally, I wouldn’t really recommend it, there’s better stuff out there.
