    King for a day. SOTD
    I don’t know but this particular soap seems to be very different from other Wholly Kaw soaps I have.
    It really is in a class of its own.
    Just a delightful experience, so happy the season change had me pull this one out again.

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Palmolive Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger
    GEM Damaskeene
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Palmolive Shave Cream lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Silvertip Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the GEM Damaskeene with a Personna GEM SS PTFE gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Like comparing day to night. The Booster Iced Lime and Polar Ice have ZERO cooling. Osage Rub is a menthol atom bomb.

    Thursday morning:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Minora day 2
    Stirling Black Ice SS
    Prep ASB
    Razorock Don Donato AS Splash

    This Black Ice is a refill puck that I bought a long time ago and like a shmuck I forgot that I had it so a couple of weeks ago I came across it when I was looking for something in my storage locker. The scent is IMHO very nice - it’s a sweet anise type like the Glacial Obsidian, the lather works up so rich with the typical Stirling slickness thanks to the tallow formula, it’s got a wonderful menthol sensation, and the postshave feeling is fantastic. As always the Prep delivers its own special cooling and soothing care, while the Don Donato aftershave smells so beautiful and feels so good. A special thanks to my Yaqi Barber Pole synthetic for whipping up such awesome lather. What a great BBS shave this was!

    Have a good day - be well and safe!

    Oh would think the two Boosters would indeed have cooling power(given their names).
