    Tuesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 2
    Master Soap Creations Peppermint Lime SS
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill ASB
    Master Splash Creations Frosted Spearmint AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Scent wise this was a mix em and match em type of deal as well as fantastic stuff from two great artisans who really know the business. The mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling is very cooling, it’s unscented, it does a great job of cleaning my skin, softening my tough stubble, and it’s so slick. The Peppermint Lime soap has a beautiful, tangy scent, it’s tallow based so the lather works up so rich, thick, and slick, there’s a LOT of menthol in this soap, and the skincare is A1. The Glacial Lemon Chill balm’s scent is a good match for this soap, it’s so cold as well as soothing, and the Frosted Spearmint aftershave freezes as much as the Arctique from Barrister & Mann. Was this ever a marvellous shave!

    Have a nice day - be well and safe!

    Tabac Tuesday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #1 Silvertip Badger
    ISKRA Safety Razor
    Personna Super (60)
    CWR
    Tabac AS

    The Tabac Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #1 Silver Tip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the ISKRA Safety Razor with a Personna Super Blade (60) gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
