    Not that much. It is a custom blend I came up with very similar to Prairie Creations Alpine Snowdrift. Star anise essential oil, fir and pine needle essential oil, cedarwood essential oil, oakmoss absolute, peppermint essential oil, and spearmint essential oil, plus menthol crystals. I wanted the cool sensation that you just walked out onto the porch of a mountain cabin and the coolness hits your face, nothing overpowering.

    I have not, Joseph. When I found this mug in a local vintage shop, it did have a few traces of the original puck left, but was a little grimy. I chose to clean it out. It still had the original Shave store sticker on the bottom, though.

    SOTD: 6th December 2022.


    Shaving recipe for today.

    Prep: Warm shower: Nivea Men Power Shower Gel.

    Cold wet flannel to my face.
    Palmolive Naturals Olive & Milk Bar Soap.
    Brush: Frank Shaving 24mm Synthetic.
    Bowl Lather.
    Bowl: Home Bargains Stainless Steel Side Bowl.
    Lather: Proraso Blue Shaving Cream.
    Blade: Vidyut Super-Max Super Stainless. (D1.)
    Razor: Muhle R41. (2013)

    Cold water face wash with brush squeezing's, Cold Water Face Rinse. / Alum Rub. /Cold Water Rinse. / Homemade (~Autumn/Winter mix~) peppermint lavender, eucalyptus, + Tea Tree essential Oils Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel. /Superdrug Sierran Breeze ASL. /Nivea Men Fresh Kick ASB.


    Early morning shave.

    Everything in my shave set up paired together wonderfully.

    The Proraso Blue shaving cream created a nice creamy slick protective lather with only a small amount in a short space of time The residual slickness is superb leaving an excellent post-shave feel to my mature skin.

    An enjoyable 2 pass + pick-ups close comfortable near BBS shave with no errors to report. Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Fresh Kick ASB.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine. ;)

    Keep safe and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen. :cool:

    Feather Artist Club blade
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #2 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 3D AC-Matic Razor and the Feather Artist Club blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning:

    Hot shower
    Razorock 26mm Monster
    Junjie/Astra Green day 14
    Palmolive Classic SC
    Proraso Blue ASB
    Murray & Lanman Florida Water AS Splash
    Quorum EdT

    The Astra Green blade got so dull during the second pass that there was no way I could have done a third one - in fact it was a miracle that I was able to do two passes. My Plissoft Monster churned up great lather from the Palmolive Classic cream which has a really nice scent as well as terrific postshave care. The Proraso Blue balm gave me lots of additional moisturizing and soothing, while the Florida Water works so well as an aftershave - it smells so old school and barbershoppy the way I love it. Believe it or not the two passes I did gave me a good BBS shave and tomorrow it’s gonna be a new Astra Green!

    Wishing y’all a great day - be well and safe![​IMG]
