    Menthol Monday:

    Axe Chilled Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:
    #6 Horsehair
    Super Speed/new Rapira
    Nanny's Ice & a Slice SS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    444 AS Balsam :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Barbon AS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    YSL Pour Homme EDT

    One of the most frigid set-ups that a menthol freak like myself can put together. The Axe Chilled wash is cooling enough, the Ice & a Slice is almost competition for Palmolive Menthol or Godrej Menthol Mist, and the 444 balsam and Barbon aftershave give a freezing which lasts for most of the day! ;) :D

    I'm starting to think I'm an unscented soap/cream type person. I like lavender, vetiver and Tabac other than that I'm pretty indifferent. Nice shave with the Fresco and C&S. Have a good one.

    Soap: Haslinger's Ewe Milk & Lanolin.
    Brush: Semogue 1520 boar.
    Razor/blade: Mühle R89 / Shark Super Stainless (3.shave on that blade today).

    Hi Friends,

    i couldn´t shave yesterday,so i did it today.:) It´s no "Menthol Monday" shave but i liked it even a lot.I hadn´t shaved for over 1 week now,so "Sir Shave-a-lot" had a lot of work to do.

    -Edwin Jagger DE89 (with custom made Handle)
    -Voshkod blade
    -Florena Men shaving cream (Hi Jeff ;))
    -HJM Black synthetic fibre
    -Bello Bay Rum Aftershave


    The handle feels very nice.And looks very nice as well.It has a very good weight, so for me the EJ89 has a better balance.The cream smells really nice,gives a very good cushion and is very gentle to the skin.

    So,have a good time.Thank you for reading!!!:)
