    That's interesting...from the description of Bill Neumann's Absolute Zero, I'd say the same about that.(Course I don't have that one doesn't sound THAT absolute)

    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
    Prep ASB
    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![​IMG]

    Lustray Spice After Shave

    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...

    Razor : Razorock 2nd Generation Lupo.72- Mfg 2021>, mid range, excellent design, machining and finish are excellent QC. Excellent razor to work under the nose area and overall a excellent razor. I seem to get some of the best shaves with my Lupo.72 and very reasonably priced IMO.
    Blade : Personna red(4) sharp and smooth with great longevity.
    Soap : Razorock XXX Fresco, nice clean scented soap (slightly mentholated) with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush : Yaqi "Orbital ring" boar bristle brush, excellent lather generator, soft split end bristle hairs, excellent splay scrubber + great lather painter.
    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 XXX Fresco with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
    Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)3 template 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=[​IMG] Excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 with a Personna red blade.
