    This Williams Menthol cream smells delicious, and gives a great menthol blast which lasts for quite a while when you leave the bathroom. The Alt Innsbruck's menthol effect is an absolute delight. ;) :D

    Nice cool shave, but I do not like the Godrej creams. They all have a weird chemically type scent to them that does not agree with me.

    Menthol Monday Miracle
    Pre: TSD Iced SubZero Preshave
    Soap:TSD Iced SubZero SS
    Razor: Schick adjustable injector 7/5/1
    Schick blade (shave 4 or 5)
    Brush: Plisson EW
    AS: Aqua Velva Ice Sport + Extra Menth Head Super Boost

    What a great shave. I waited until after work to shave since I was expecting the latest TSD Store box, but the weather had my head aching so bad I was nauseous. In a different thread Joanna told me that the ISZ themed Menthol Monday would make my headache go away and she was right!
    The Pre Shave was really great and a little really does go a long way! The Plisson easily whipped up the best lather I've gotten so far off the TSD soap. The sweet notes of the Aqua Velva Ice Sport were a perfect accompaniment to the sweet mint smell of the ISZ.

    Side Note: Saturday was an amazing shave with the Fat Boy cranked up to 9 and Gillette 7O'C SP Blue . Sunday I broke out the EJ DE86 with a Voskhod and struggled to get a good shave. The Jagger is definitely the prettiest razor I have, but something about it just doesn't work for me.
