    Odd, How have I never seen this thread before. I guess I am a probationary member of this club as my claim to fame has yet to be validated. But I too enjoy the crispness of a cold water shave in the morning.

    I have just tried it. Here's what I noticed: the pre-shave (Proraso) sat on my skin much more, rather than being absorbed. I rinse between passes and the pre-shave was noticeable throughout the shave; my shaving soap lathered, on my face, much more easily. I used MWF; I didn't get that clammy, slightly puffy feel to my face that I normally get after my shave. I wasn't sure I had a great shave, that may have been down to a new type of blade, but touching my face, some thirty minutes later - I am incredibly smooth. It's a great shave! Honestly, I can't stop touching my face.

    A good experience, but one I would enjoy more on a really hot evening. I think for me, the cold water took a little bit of the luxury out of the shave. Soaking your face in a cold flannel is definitely not as pleasant. I would never have tried it without this thread. Thanks.

    :happy036: I'm glad you enjoyed it! It's fun trying new things, this hobby is amazingly versatile. Ounce you become accustomed to it, it feels every bit as luxurious. It's very invigorating. :happy088:

    I was wondering about using a scuttle in conjunction with a cold water shave

    Warm lather feels great and contrasts nicely with a cold rinse.

    If you liked that Art of Manliness article, you should check out the one on Cold Showers. There are actually a lot of physical and physiological benefits. I haven't gone quite that far, but in the summer I usually do the last half of the shower cold.
