Guy, Cryogen is killer cold I agree but I have two soaps from Master Soap Creations in South Africa that are even colder. These were custom made for me by Fernando the owner. These soaps are Citrus Melody and his Wintergreen. Man oh man it feels like shaving with liquid nitrogen.

Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:
L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Astra Green day 10
Stirling Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo SS
Osage Rub AS Splash
Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
Bleu de Chanel EdP
My face is so frozen stiff from this shave that I think it’ll need all day to thaw out - the Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap is something that I really wish Rod would bring back because it’s so awesome. The scent is so gorgeous - it’s the Sharp Dressed Man fragrance with two boatloads of frigid menthol, the tallow formula gives the lather such beauty and slickness, the freeze starts as soon as the brush makes contact with your face, each pass makes it stronger and stronger, but the skincare is perfect. The Prep and the Rubby Dubby Doo were a splendid finish. Three passes gave me one helluva great BBS shave that was so much fun!
Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and safe!

The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #443 Synthetic brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TNNSER V.1 Razor and a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
