    It got cold as heck again here - ah well, that's life!

    It'll feel plenty frigid in my bathroom as well when I shave, because it going to be a special day which is:

    Menthol Monday!

    Gatsby Ice Cooling Gel Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:

    If you're a menthol monkey like I am then this set-up is your ticket because every item is bone-chillingly cold. The Gatsby face wash is almost a face-freezer by itself and it has excellent skincare with a nice scent. Lather up with the Glacial Obsidian soap and you're going to shiver - this I guarantee along with wonderful moisturizing and soothing. The Anherb conditioner continues that iciness and post-shave care so well, and the Rubby Dubby Doo freezes the daylights out of you altogether! ;) :D

    March 23 Plans

    Stirling Sheep bath/face soap
    Merkur 37C slant bar razor
    Feather blade (day 2)
    Omega 10098 boar brush
    Two passes
    Alum, Thayer's Lavender witch hazel, & unrefined shea butter

    This will be my third shave with Arko. My initial impression is that it is a great performing soap. After that, I will set it aside (and let the stick continue to breathe - like a fine bottle of wine that has just been uncorked :)) until Arko April. I really enjoy using my Omega brush. It does a great job with soaps, and it took no time at all to break in. It has great face feel, and I highly recommend this brush to anyone!
    I very much enjoy reading the SOTD posts. You guys rock! :git: Have a blessed week!

    Dove Men Face Wash
    Col. Conk Bay Rum Shave Soap
    Frank Shaving Finest Badger
    GEM Super Stainless
    CWR, Asma Alum Block
    Thayers Rose WH
    Aqua Velva

    The Col. Conk Bay Rum Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Frank Shaving Finest Badger Badger 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 WH and then Aqua Velva after shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
