    Thursday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Wilkinson Sword day 9
    Mama Bear Awakenings SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel Parfum

    To be perfectly honest I’m not too much of a fan of these Mama Bear soaps - yes, they’re good at lathering and they tend to have very nice scents but they lack the slickness and skincare that I look for in a soap. They’re all glycerine based, by the way. This Awakenings soap has a strong eucalyptus/peppermint scent which is actually very nice, it gives excellent lather, (I bloomed it really well) it has a VERY strong menthol sensation, but it left my skin a bit dry and irritated. The Prep fixed that problem beautifully, and the Rubby Dubby Doo as I call the Osage Rub gave me a wonderful bone chilling menthol kick. I did three passes and got a good and proper BBS shave.

    Enjoy your day - be well and safe.
