    Since I didn't use anything mentholated today I'm going to really make up for it for tomorrow morning. The Neutrogena facial wash is plenty cold and it leaves my skin feeling squeaky-clean. The Glacial Lemon Chill soap smells so great - it's a perfect balance of fresh lemon and intense menthol, and that freezing sensation is so potent that it feels like an ice-cold water rinse. The Gold Bond moisturizer keeps that chill going very nicely, and the Glacial Wintergreen witch hazel brings the word frigid to a whole new level. ;) :D

    March 16 Plans

    Stirling sheep soap
    Merkur 37C slant bar razor
    Feather blade (day 2)
    Kent BK8 silvertip badger brush
    MdC scented soap
    Two passes
    Alum, Thayer's Lavender witch hazel, & unrefined shea butter

    This will be my second shave with MdC. It produced a nice lather for me today. I will load the brush a little more tomorrow, and it should be even better. This might be the perfect shaving set up for me.

    We're now hitting the 60s and 70s during the day in my neck of the woods. I love this time of year. I hope you all enjoy some nice weather this week.

    Supporting Vendor

    Dove Men Face Wash
    TOBS Lavender
    Jayaruh WC1 Silver Tip
    GEM Super Stainless
    CWR, Asma Alum Block
    Thayers Rose Petal WH
    Aqua Velva

    The TOBS Lavender Shaving Cream face-lathered well with my Jayaruh WC1 Silver Tip Brush. Two passes with my GEM MMBT SE razor and a GEM Super Stainless blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, alum block, and a final cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayers Rose Petal WH and then Aqua Velva after shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday, sorta.


    Prep: Hot shower w/ Grandpa's Pine Tar
    Lather: Stirling Frozen Tundra
    Razor: '46-'50 Gillette Heavy Gold Tech
    Blade: Astra SP
    Post: Witch Hazel, Nivea Sensitive Balm

    A sort of Menthol Monday, as soaps and creams are my only menthol products at the moment. Yesterday's shave was a tough act to follow, 2 passes XTG and ATG came close to yesterday's results at the cost of a bit of irritation. The Frozen Tundra was COLD! Not sure what to make of the scent.

    3/16/2015 Menthol Monday!! Woo Hoo!!

    Prep: Hot shower with Nivea Face Wash with menthol, home made PSO
    Razor: Stahly Live Blade, H. Boker Master Razor straight razor
    Blade: Pol Silver Super Iridium (3)
    Brush: Turkish #6
    Soap: Arko Men - Ice Mint
    After: Home made ASB, Osage Rub after shave
    Cologne: Aqua H2O

    It is Menthol Monday!! The #6 brush easily whipped up the Ice Mint cream into a nice and thick lather. The Stahly and the Boker knocked down the stubble with ease. The Osage Rub brought the arctic chill and Aqua H2O has me smelling like a spring day in a citrus orchard. All in all it was a 2 pass Darn Fine Shave this morning.

    Have a blessed day!

    does the bigger custom handle tame the Fatip any? Or did you like it's super aggressive disposition?
