    Happy 4th of July!

    Menthol Monday:

    What a great Grand Freeze!

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Wilkinson Sword day 13
    Bundubeard Cool as a Cucumber X 3 SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash

    My brother Jaco makes fabulous soaps also - most of them are glycerine based and they have awesome scents with great lather as well as excellent skincare. There are two versions of Cool as a Cucumber and this one is the X 3 variant which has a very high menthol content that’s comparable to the Stirling Glacial soaps. The scent of this soap is very nice - along with the cucumber you also get lots of peppermint, the lather explodes off the brush, the menthol sensation hits like a sledgehammer, and it’s so skin friendly. The Prep and the Rubby Dubby Doo were a perfect finish. Three passes gave me such a dynamite BBS shave which I enjoyed immensely!

    Have a good week - be well and safe!

    One day, I will find anice lather catcher at a decent price. The closest one I have to this is my Star 1912. LOUD feedback and very enjoyable shaver. Maybe sometime this month. I am working with the Hawk this month. Standard & the Open Comb plate.Standard plate is very nice with a Professional blade but, the OC needs taming. It is a BEAST! :duel:

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with Bunny B-400 Badger Brush by Tom. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Tech Slant Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue 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:

    Salaam aleikum wa Rahmat Allah al barakatu!

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Wilkinson Sword day 14
    Hamol SC
    Prep ASB
    Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

    A great Syrian barbershop experience from this Hamol cream - my friend who’s a mechanic visited his family in Damascus a few years ago and he brought me back a couple of tubes of this lovely cream - the scent is so nice, it lathers like crazy, it has a mild but very pleasant menthol sensation, and it’s so skin friendly. This cream is so popular in Syrian barbershops and it’s apparently very cheap over there. The Prep felt so good when I massaged it on, and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave’s beautiful scent made me smell and feel like I just stepped out of a barbershop over here. The Wilkinson Sword blade is pretty much kaput now but I managed to get one last hoorah from it with a great three pass BBS shave!

    Enjoy your day - be well and safe!

    A nice lather catcher is the Gem Junior bar (tame mid range) and that one is a nice daily driver also. They are also more plentiful and are not that pricey IMO. Gem sold a lot of them because they worked well for folks at that time line. With a new blade they are just wonderful and very rewarding for myself to have a few of them.
