    Great shave, Guy. Does your Williams have any menthol remaining?

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Schick day 8
    Master Soap Creations Cherry Freeze SS
    Prep ASB
    Reef Point Fougère Santal AS Splash

    There’s definitely a difference in scent and performance between these two versions of Cherry Freeze. Today I used the glycerine version which lathers very well but it seems to be a bit more difficult to get a really thick, creamy, rich lather than with the tallow based one although I succeeded with the help of my lovely Yaqi Barber Pole. The menthol sensation is heavenly, and the skincare is pretty good also but again, the tallow version is better, at least to me. The Prep soothed and moisturized my skin afterwards while the Fougère Santal aftershave smells so gorgeous and it’s loaded with menthol. I don’t think even a professional barber could have done a better job because I ended up smoother than a glass table top!

    Have a great week - stay healthy and safe!
