    We're getting the remnants of Harvey because today it's windy as hell and pouring here in Montreal.

    Here's my kickoff for the new week!

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Astra
    Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented AS Balm
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    YSL Pour Homme EdT

    Since the weather forecast for tomorrow is calling for warmer and better conditions I'll use this awesome frigid setup!

    Menthol Monday's SE Shave

    Proraso Pre Shave
    TSD Iced Lime
    B 400 by Tom
    GEM Damaskene
    CVS SE
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Barbasol AS

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The TSD Iced Lime Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the B 400 badger brush by Tom. I did the two passes with the GEM Damaskene and CVS SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    shave-Rise Super Foam Regular
    razor-Pivot Nation by Gillette Sensor Deuce
    A.S.-Rise Cooling Balm

    a correction for today's(Sunday)shave-I broke out the Dove Men+Care Deep Clean Bodywash for the cool day-no menthol in that one.

    It just can't get any colder or better than this!

    After using the Glacial MITA soap my face felt not only like it was getting freezer burn, it was BBS from three most enjoyable passes with my Super Speed and a brand-new Astra blade. My Plissoft synthetic whipped up tremendous lather in no time as it always does. The Glacial Unscented balm did a perfect job of adding to the freeze and the Arctique aftershave felt almost painfully-cold. I decided to go without the YSL eau de toilette because I'm staying in all day. What a great shave!

    Wishing you all a terrific week!

    WTG-XTG-ATG (adjusted angles for my beard)

    Reef Point Submariner today. 20 seconds to load the Turtleship Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Vintage Gillette Platinum Plus in the Gillette Black Beauty. Excellent smooth, close shave. I finished with Reef Point Submariner aftershave.

    Schick J1 razor
    Personna blade
    WD Synthetic brush
    Stirling Margarita's in the Artic SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    M&L Florida Water Cologne w/added menthol

    Great Labor Day shave. All the parts worked well together and my face is happy. I also estimate that using the MITA SS once or twice a week, with a synthetic brush, it will take about 2 years to use it up. WOW! Now go enjoy your day folks
