    Menthol Monday 29 August

    No Coffee till later
    Gillette New w/ Lord Platinum blade (D3)
    Berkley 46, face lather
    Grodrej-Mentol Mist
    AG and Proraso ASB

    A quick Monday morning shave a bit earlier than I wanted so everyone can cycle through the bathroom. Nice and chilly, I am really loving the menthol mist, its working for me. The Gillette new is definitely a more aggresive razor than the slim, and I am still getting used to it.
    Have a great day, I should have some goodies coming in today or tomorrow.

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Voskhod day 5
    Noxzema SC :love055::love055::love029::smiley freezing:
    Keri unscented moisturizer
    Booster Polar Ice AS :love055::love055::love055::love055:
    Aramis EDT

    This shave was so wonderful, although it wasn't the coldest possible, and the aftershave is only cold by the name. Booster Polar Ice does contain a bit of menthol, but I really don't feel any cooling effect from it. The Noxzema cream is very cooling, as well as delightful in every way. I think I used this set-up today because I was nostalgic! ;):biggrin:

    Razor: Gillette Fatboy
    Blade: Schick Plus Platinum
    Brush: Rooney Finest
    Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
    Soap: Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet (Tallow Version)
    A/S: Trumper Wild Fern

    Today's shave, dedicated to dearly departed shaving goods, was excellent. The Rooney Finest, loaded with tallowy goodness, felt like a cloud on my face. The Fatboy and Schick Plus Platinum combo worked swimmingly and the Splash of Wild Fern was like taking a stroll down memory lane.
