    Guys, I beg you to forgive me for kicking off the new week so early. It's because we're going to visit my Dad soon so I'll be very busy for most of the rest of today.

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Astra
    Stirling Glacial Obsidian SS
    Stirling Glacial Obsidian AS Balm
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    Israeli Lavender Fragrance Oil

    Autumn came in disguised as mid-summer so I have to use a setup which will keep me just about keep me shivering the whole day - trust me, this one will do it! ;)

    Have a great rest of today and a great start to the new week!

    Oh, my sister-in-law brought me back this nice lavender fragrance oil from Israel as a gift. It's unnamed, but does it ever smell beautiful. Just a small dab on both sides of the neck are enough!

    Jayaruh #206
    AutoStrop VB1
    Feather Stainless SE
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Pinaud Clubman

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Proraso Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #206 badger brush. I did two passes with the AutoStrop VB1 razor and a Feather Stainless SE blade. I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Krampert's Frostbite pairs extremely well with Boreal and provides a welcome cool on a record hot day. The feather blade imperceptibly reduced my stubble, leaving smooth comfortable skin after three passes. As long as I go slower than usual, these blades behave nicely in the Rockwell.
    Prep: Van Yulay PSO
    Soap: T+S Boreal
    Brush: Wild West Go Green
    Razor: Rockwell 6s R6
    Blade: Feather

    Beard: Black Hatchet All-purpose Balm

    The best way to describe this shave is BRRRRRR-COLD and beautiful. The Glacial Obsidian soap did the trick with its super-rich lather as well as its powerful menthol freeze. I had that same wonderful sensation from the matching balm, and an even more potent freeze from the Arctique aftershave splash. These Astra blades are so smooth, sharp, and forgiving as well as having good longevity. Three passes gave me that perfect BBS shave!

    A great week to all!

    WTG, touch up

    Smooth and comfortable start to the work week. Iced Pineapple is a tremendous scent. Great lather and post-shave feel and a nice shave was had. Not much more to report. Easy peasy.

    Have a great day!
