Generally speaking, would you prefer a mentholated or non menthol post shave balm?

    We're asked all the time if Moon will be offering an aftershave to match the various shave soaps in our line. We have decided to go with a post-shave balm instead of an alcohol-based splash. Melody has some pretty serious skills in the lotion department so this seems a good fit for us. Plus, shipping outside the US would be no problem. We've worked out a formula...a real good one, but are undecided on the addition of menthol.
    All of them? None of them? Some of them?
    Personally, I love it. Menthol in a lotion stays cool on the face for much longer than a splash. But I need to what you all think.

    So, Menthol or not?

    I always opt for menthol if given a choice.

    I use more mentholated products during warmer times of the year.

    I like menthol, but I can always add it, so I would prefer if given the choice non-menthol.

    I would think having it optional would be better. Some people do not like the menthol.

    Yup, and some of us are downright allergic to it.

    I'll go with menthol every time.

    Here's a thought though: For a lot of people, balms are more of a winter thing. Menthol not so much.

    I voted menthol, but as it would be a balm, I figure it can't be TOO cold. I find these days that I'd rather be out in freezing weather than humid. Don't get excited, @Yehuda D, I'm not saying I''d join you in using Meeter on New Year's Day(or Arcticque)!!

    For the most part, I prefer menthol, however, there are some scents, that I'd rather not have menthol in the mix!

    Y'know, there's a tradition here in Boston....people strip down and run into a section of the Boston Harbor waters...on New Years Day.

    Warm weather, love the menthol. Cold weather, prefer something else.
