    Summer is making its way to the Great Pacific Northwest (temp around 80F today!)

    So I'm looking for suggestions for a summer soap / cream and after shave splash / cream for a cool summer shave.

    Now I'm looking to go slow, not @crackstar level of frozen!
    :Animatedfrozensmily:

    Not crazy about heavy scents of peppermint or such, but just that refreshed, cool me off in the summertime feeling. :cool:

    Thanks in advance!

    TSDS Iced Subzero is fantastic! Plus every purchase helps keep the den up and running.

    Excellent, thanks!

    I'd been considering ordering something from there after I finish a handful of samples. (Though it seems more members here tend to have "a few" choices always available in their den.) ;)

    I just didn't know where to start and was mostly a confused newbie taking a shot in the dark ordering something that just sounds good. Thanks for taking the time providing some advice. This will hopefully give me a good starting point.

    :thanks:

    You can customize the menthol level...Iced Subzero is great stuff though! I suggest unscented TSDS 1x menthol for something less @crackstar level.

    Ingram tick all your boxes for cream, Myrsol Agua de Limon for Aftershave.

    I like using DR Harris Arlington, Proraso Green or Palmolive when it's hot. As for AS, Floid Suave for me, the mint is refreshing.

    I dont like menthol soaps or crèmes but I do like Soap Commander balms. They have a nice touch of menthol or something like it that you start to feel minutes after applying it. The Passion and Love are the two I have used and both give you that refreshing ice feeling and also do a wonderful job of moisturizing the face.

    TSDS' "Lemon and Figs" scent is another way to go for a very 'summery' scent; JoAnna will add as much, or as little, menthol as you think you need to keep your cool.

    Alternately, a "Grapefruit Mint" or lightly mentholated "Pink Grapefruit" scented soap is very refreshing on a hot day.

    TSD's M-Bomb - add as much or as little menthol to what ever you want.

    I got a sample of Stirling Lemon Glacial bath soap when I made my last order. It was one of the only "glacial" types I enjoyed. Reminded me of Riccola cough drops, and I love those things.

    I'll say cold water shaves with your favorite menthol cream/croap/soap followed with a generous splash of Osage Rub will do the trick.

    I have been looking into getting some Iced Subzero or Sterling Glacial soaps because I have been on a menthol kick lately. I would recommend TSD soaps Iced so you could get any scent you like with a bit of menthol but not face freezing. I recently picked up the Iced Havoc (aqua velva type) and it has a very nice amount of menthol without being crazy.
