    Super Menthol Monday:

    My Custom Made Grand Freeze!

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Astra Green day 13
    MSC Wintergreen SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Wintergreen AS Splash
    Fahrenheit EdT

    As you’ll notice there are no labels on this soap container or aftershave bottle because these two items were custom made for me by my dear brother Fernando from Master Soap Creations in Johannesburg, South Africa. This soap and aftershave are absolutely IDENTICAL in scent to the Stirling Glacial Wintergreen which has always been a top favourite of mine - in other words the scent is a delight, the soap is tallow based like all of Fernando’s soaps, the lather works up so thick, rich, MEGA SLICK as well as cushiony and protective, the menthol sensation……..all I can say is that it kicks the Glacial Wintergreen or the Chiseled Face Cryogen in the tukhis, and the skincare is brilliant - whenever I use this soap my skin feels like it’s been born again. The Prep always gives me terrific moisturizing with lots of soothing, and Fernando’s Wintergreen aftershave kills the B&M Arctique when it comes to menthol power. The wife loves the Fahrenheit on me and you know what - so do I. Another wonderful three pass frigid BBS shave that brought “tears of joy” to my eyes!

    Have a good week - be well and stay safe![​IMG]

    Preshave: Hot shower
    Soap: Stirling Bay Rum
    Brush: Ever-Ready rebuild (synthetic)
    Razor: Van Der Hagen TTO
    Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (3)
    Post shave: Gillette Gel

    First time using the Stirling soap and it was a terrific experience.
    The one fly in the ointment was (once again) the Gillette Silver Blue blade. I won't be using it again. It just doesn't work for me.

    Menthol Monday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap
    Tom's Brush B-3 Badger
    Brass TAR by Tom
    Nacet Stainless
    Humphrey's Witch Hazel

    The TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap lathered very well with Tom's Brush B-3 Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Brass TAR by Tom, set on 1, and the Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Humphrey's Witch Hazel. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shave of the Week Starting 30 Jan 2023

    Parker 94r
    WD Synthetic
    Lea or Palmolive Shave Stick
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Various A/S

    Still on my shave stick journey and am going over my thoughts on Lea and Palmolive Shave Sticks. Have used both in the past and just need to try them again. When done with this weeks shave, I plan to do a comparison with my thoughts on each. Anyway, today's shave went ok. Close but not to comfortable. Not sure why but I'll try again tomorrow. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Razor : Star bar #4 Lather catcher model- Mfg 1929-30, tame mid range, well built for that era & with some care will last generations, With a new Gem PTFE blade this razor will give any razor I own a run for performance results at end of shave IMO. Very enjoyable shave this morning.
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (1) very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
    Soap : Razorock The Dead Sea- very unique scent that is addictive to myself + excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, excellent splay scrubber, great lather painter. Nice handle in the hand to use with a very good knot.
    Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave : Razorock The Dead sea [​IMG] with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results :CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + 1 blemish weeper=[​IMG] Excellent shave this morning with my Star bar #4 with a coated Gem blade.
