thank you Steve..
Grazie, amico mio!
Excellent 3P shave, Sergio. This is a vastly under-rated soap, IMO.
I found it!
But shipping costs and customs bureaucracy with the US are crazy.
I'll wait for my mule to visit the States...
ok then..congrats on finding it..
It sure is!
I did not use it for ages myself.
And... hard to find as well!
I have a silly list of soaps: mine are ending
Yeah... Trick or shave, right?

Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
When I first returned to DE shaving, I was gifted a Flair Tip by a member of another board. Due to my inexperience I thought, "Nice razor but I bet there are better". That started my searching, and, 80 razors later I thought I should try again. Glad I did! Got a tremendous shave that was so comfortable and easy. Liked it a lot! The More 4 You SS helped also. If you like Arko, you'll like this one. All in all, a great start to my shaving week. Now go enjoy your day folks
cool shave and pic..
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
Super Speed/Derby day 2
Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill ASB
B&M Arctique AS Splash
Christian Dior Eau Sauvage EdT
After four days of no menthol I went back to it with a fervour this morning. Even the mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling felt really chilly and it did an awesome job of cleaning my face as well as softening my beard stubble. The Glacial Lemon Chill soap’s scent is beautiful - fresh, tangy lemon with powerful menthol fumes, the lather worked up so rich, it had the great slickness that’s so typical of Stirling soaps, the freeze jumped on me right away, and the postshave feeling was perfect. The matching balm has that same delightful scent with the same icy cold, soothing skincare, and the Arctique froze the crap out of me. Three passes left me silky smooth!
Have a great week - be safe and healthy!
