    It is! It's a Grandpa's brand soap with patchouli scent. Same great lather Paul. :)

    Cold water shave repeat and I like it. This mornings CWS was better than my first. I was expecting the normal 3 pass with clean up, but no, this was my first ever 2 pass plus clean up. I believe the difference maker was the delivery of my new Evhas DE. When I ordered the Evahs, there was a recommended pair this with Personna blades and I did. I installed a brand new never tried before blade in the brand new never tried before razor and proceeded to do a once tried before CWS. I am a CWS fan and for those that haven't tried it, you have to do it a least once.

    Awesome! I'm very glad you like the Evahs, it's one of my very favorite razors and it's also beautifully made and finished. Welcome to the club George. Here is a banner for you! :)

    So just an update:

    I know that originally, I committed to a week of cold water shaves, just to try it out. I guess I have what would be called a tough face, (I sure know it looks beaten on ): I wasn't having any trouble with my shaves, I just wanted to see what was up with the hype.

    I am just guessing, but I would say that was five or six weeks ago, and I am still cold shaving every day, and love it. Just for the invigoration, it is awesome. I have at least gotten to the point where I have stopped reaching for the hot water knob on my sink.

    I still honestly, can't imagine doing this when winter sets in again. I know you guys say it doesn't matter, but I am respectfully reserving my opinion until below zero temps set in.

    Cold Water Shaver Dabbler Recruit, signing out.

    Good morning friends. Redemption today with a wonderful shave after yesterday's fiasco. The Glacial MITA provided loads of creamy, slick, bone chilling lather while the N1 fitted with a Chinese Schick blade (Chick) made short work of my whiskers. Thank's @Billyfergie for the recommendation they are awesome! Freezing finish for this menthol freak with Glacial Lemon Chill balm and then Glacial Spearmint after shave splash. (brrr) Have a great weekend guys. :)

    Yeah Pickled I love ice water shaves, and even though the winters aren't to bad in no. California I getting getting up in the dark, having my fog chaser coffee from Costco, hot shower and shave.

    Good morning guys. First shave this morning with my new to me Pal Injecto-Matic and what a wonderful shave it was! This razor is silky smooth and efficient beyond my other injectors and on par with my Schick adjustable in terms of aggression. Dolphin smooth after 3 passes with ease. I'm using it again tomorrow, it's that good. I would like to thank @Karl G for tipping me off to it. Frozen face again today and loving it, what a great start to the day. Have a great day friends! :)

    I tried it last night. I love how cold water shave performed. I think I will use this method all the time.
    Indonesia is too hot to use a warm water shave.
