    Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Astra Green day 12
    MSC Peppermint Latte SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Peppermint Latte AS Splash

    My face is frozen and I mean FROZEN thanks to this Peppermint Latte soap and aftershave. The scent is so beautiful - it’s exactly what it implies - a delightful blend of peppermint and espresso coffee, the soap is tallow based so you get such thick, rich, creamy, SUPER SLICK lather with a POTENT menthol sensation, and such gentle, soothing, skincare. The Prep as always gave me so much postshave love, and the Peppermint Latte aftershave’s witch hazel formula went on frigidly cold, it never stings or burns, and that beautiful scent lasts all day. Three glorious passes gave me a most enjoyable BBS shave!

    Have a nice, relaxing Sunday - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Hi again Friends,

    Here mySunday Shave (06.11.2022)

    Razor: Merkur 23c // Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium // Soap: Soap Commander Drive // Brush: Shavemac 173 Synthetic // Aftershave: Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve

    What a shave…the soap arrived on Friday and is absolutely WONDERFUL!!!

    Smells like a Bootstore on a grassy hill. The Vetiver adds some freshness to the scent. Great great scent.

    Typical for Soap Commander is the fantastic lather. A 30 second load with my Shavemac Synthetic was all i needed to have a fantastic 2,5 pass shave.

    I am not 100% BBS but i was not reaching for it so, all is good. The razor did a mighty fine job with the blade. The Alumblock did not sting at all. A healthy splash of this lovely smelling Aftershave and i was totally fine. Great shave.

    Have a good time, enjoy your shaves and stay safe and healthy.

    With this suprising summer weather I probably should have gone with something cooler, but I went with Sir Hare soap(Alpha-Tobacco&Vanilla) and Stoylin Unscented A.S. It was a nice shave. 2 passes. No cuts, a Knick, and no polka-dots. It will be warm again tomorrow, so I reached into the back of the Den for a cooler, more comfortable shave for tomorrow. Nothing glacial, but it'll be OK. You'll see my choice in a different post. But as for today-Pretty Excellent.

    Menthol Monday:

    L’Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Canadian Tech/Astra Green day 13
    MSC Frosted Lavender SS
    Thayer’s Lavender Witch Hazel
    Prep ASB
    MSC Frosted Lavender AS Splash

    As if yesterday’s shave wasn’t frigid enough this one was even more frigid - my brother Fernando’s Frosted Lavender soap and aftershave are two menthol atom bombs with the most gorgeous lavender scent I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. The soap is tallow based like all of his soaps, the lather whips up so thick, rich, SUPER SLICK, and protective, the menthol sensation is so friggin intense that it easily competes with any of the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. The Thayer’s Lavender witch hazel has almost no scent but it does such a fantastic job of soothing my skin, the Prep needs no explanation because it’s so awesome, and the Frosted Lavender aftershave is also witch hazel based like all of Fernando’s aftershaves, it smells as beautiful as the soap, and the menthol kick that it gives is off the charts. The Astra Green blade is still holding up so it helped me achieve a magnificent three pass BBS shave that was so much fun!

    Wishing y’all a great week - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Osage Rub

    The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #371 Badger/Boar brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick C Repeating Razor and the Personna Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
