    Menthol Monday:

    Axe Chilled Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing:
    #6 Horsehair
    Super Speed/new 7 AM
    Gada Cool Mint :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Diana Sport Menthol Balsam :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Alcolado Glacial Menthol Splash :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Givenchy Gentleman EDT

    I'll be starting the week off with an intensely-cooling set-up. The Axe Chilled wash really is just mildly cooling, but everything else like the Gada Cool Mint cream, the Diana balsam, and The Penguin are unbelieveably frigid. This is a set-up which I don't recommend for anyone who is sensitive to strong menthol - it could be painful and it also tends to make the eyes watery. ;) :D

    • 3P PSC
    • Tabac Soap
    • Gillette Slim (newly replated, rhodium)
    • Gillette Blue Blade (2)
    • Frank Best Badger Brush
    • Baxter ASG :love055:
    • Alt Innsbruck ASL:love055:
    First shave with the newly replated Gillette Slim. Nice razor but the wings of the blade stick out a bit too much! The combination of the Frank's Best brush and the Tabac made it difficult to produce a really good lather. Not sure why. I love the Baxter ASG and I would say it easily earns a 5-star rating. The Alt Innsbruck is great as well and the scent can last all day.

    Monday - I was on vacation during last week's Vintage Theme Week, so I'm doing my own personal Vintage Week this week.

    Prep: Hot shower, AoS PSO, hand strop blade
    Coffee: Maxwell House French Roast, BLACK
    CD: Jondo Trio - JD3
    Cream: Tom's of Maine
    Brush: Ever Ready 200T w/ original knot
    DE: Late '40s Gillette SS
    Blade: '64 Gillette THIN Blade*, day 1, 3 passes
    Post: Cold water rinse, ice water splash, Osage Rub, Curve, hand strop blade
    'Stache Wax: Firehouse Wacky Tacky

    The blade felt a bit rough. Hopefully it will smooth out as the week goes. Still darn near BBS.

    *For those who may not know, there was a time Gillette dated their blades in the same manner as their razors. This blade is coded J4 - making it fourth quarter of 1964.
