    We're getting a late summer heat wave so here's how I prepare for it!

    Menthol Monday:

    Neutrogena Men Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Rapira
    Stirling Glacial Black Cherry SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented AS Balm
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    Havana EdT

    This setup feels like built-in air conditioning!

    Menthol Monday's Eclipse Day Shave

    C.O. Bigelow Shaving Cream
    Jayaruh #204 Horse
    Maggard Slant
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Lucky Tiger

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The C.O. Bigelow Shaving Cream face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #204 Horse Hair brush. I did the two passes with the Maggard Slant with a Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Prep: Occams Crushed Lime
    Razor: Gillette Fat Handle Tech
    Blade: Perma-Sharp (1st shave)
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft
    Soap: Perfectly Natural Citrus Mint
    Post: Lucky Tiger, Dr. Jon's Hydra

    Smooth refreshing shave yesterday. This Perfectly Natural soap is a diamond in the rough, makes a great lather and has a strong menthol blast. It is shocking that this artisan is practically unknown on the forums because it is good stuff. Finished off with Dr. Jon's Hyrda to keep with the citrus theme.


    Prep: Gustafsons Woodlands
    Razor: Gillette Fat Handle Tech
    Blade: Perma-Sharp (2nd shave
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft
    Soap: WTF Christmas Time
    Post: T&S Classic A/S

    Excellent 2 pass shave this morning. This WTF soap is one of my favorites, nice pine/fir/basalm scent and the lather is very creamy and without bubbles, couldn't ask for more. Finished off with T&S Classic for the perfect ending for a epic shave. Hope everyone had a similar experience!

    Good Morning all, happy Monday! Here's a look at my SOTD for today-


    YUMA DE safety razor.
    Simpsons Special S-1 in pure badger.
    Astra SP blade.

    WSP Rustic Shave Soap- Fougere Nior.
    Pinaud Clubman-Special Reserve splash.
    Nivea Post Shave Balm, (unused).
    Safari cologne.

    It has been a long time since I had used this razor. I'm glad I got it out today. This razor cost me around $3 wit the case about three years ago. It was money well spent. These razors are extremely aggressive though. I did have to go slow and pay attention to what I was doing, but it paid off with a very close shave. It was a two pass BBS!
    Have a Blessed day everyone!

    Menthol Monday
    Excellent shave today - the Rockwell/feather combo made quick work of two days worth of stubble. My skin is left soft and a little chilly, enough for a morning pick me up. The forecast is for enough clouds to obscure the eclipse, so I'll have to catch it online instead.
    Prep: Chatillon Lux butter
    Soap: B&M Reserve Cool
    Brush: Brothers Bristles Silver Surfer
    Razor: Rockwell 6s R6
    Blade: feather
    AS: B&M Reserve Cool

    It just doesn't or can't get any colder or better than this - a wonderful, eye-tearing, nose-running three pass BBS shave from the Glacial Black Cherry soap. That strong, beautiful scent filled my bathroom and the lather was perfect - rich, slick, as well as FRIGID. The Glacial Unscented balm and the Arctique aftershave splash gave me tons of extra menthol goodness!

    Hope you all have an awesome week!
