    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Rapira day 4
    Arko Ice Mint SC :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:
    444 AS Balsam/Mennen Skin Bracer Original AS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:

    Even if the Arko Ice Mint cream isn't the strongest menthol stuff around, it's still strong enough to be used on a Menthol Monday, and it's the nicest cream of the entire Arko series. What an icy combination the 444 balsam and the Skin Bracer are! ;) :D

    Pre-shave: TSD ISZ Pre-shave balm, hot shower
    Soap: TSD Iced Sweet Tea (thanks JoAnna)
    Brush: Firehouse Pottery 22mm Silvertip
    Razor: GEM OCMM
    Blade: GEM Personna (Walgreens)
    Post-shave: warm water rinse, cold water rinse, witch hazel
    A/S: Pinaud Special Rreserve
    Moisturizer: L'Oreal Men's Expert Vita Lift w/ SFP 15

    A very nice 3-pass DFS+. Just shy of BBS on my neck but a great shave none the less. The only downside is that I forgot about my M-Bomb!! At least I had some nice menthol in the TSD ISZ and the Iced Sweet Tea. Have a great day everyone!

    Shave Rating: 5 Blades

    Super fantastic shave. I normally save the TSD ISZ PSB for the weekends when I can put it on and marinate for 30-40 minutes before I shower. Today I put on a thin layer right after the shower, let it sit while I got my lather whipped up, then lathered right over it. Very nice. It may become habit!

    Menthol Monday 14th May

    Hot shower and facial scrub
    Proraso Aloe and Green Tea Preshave cream
    Feather Artist Club SS (Japanese style)
    Frank Shaving Synthetic Brush
    Gada Cool Mint Cream
    Alum Block
    Osage Rub/444 ASB mix
    Brut Alaska AS
    Morgans Classic Pomade

    Two items used for the first time today. The Japanese style SS has been lying in a drawer for over 6 months unused. (AD is a terrible thing;)) The Gada was a recent acquisition from a good friend and it is a cream with attitude. For me it had the raw menthol smell I get from 444, and a similar effect:Animatedfrozensmily::Animatedfrozensmily:

    Only 2 passes today for an excellent shave!!
