Neutrogena Men Facial Wash

Wilkinson TTO/Wilkinson day 4
Stirling Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo SS
Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
Alcolado Glacial Menthol Splash

My wife is the BEST - she surprised me big time last night when she unpacked another handbag and put five of my favorite soaps in the bathroom, including this one. It’s so hot down here that a strong menthol bombardment (as well as air conditioning) is the easiest way to keep cool and comfortable. The Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap lathered like it was going out of style, its delightful scent filled the bathroom, and the freeze hit me like ten tons of icy bricks. The Glacial Unscented balm felt so good, and the Alcolado Glacial froze me even more. BBS as could possibly be from just two passes!
Im suprised you didn't take soaps! Good on aunty Corinne for packing some menthol soaps!

SOTD:
Beautiful shave today with the Wilkinson sword classic and the Wilkinson sword blade.

The omega is already starting to soften up after two shaves, and its now perfect for face lathering.

As usual the arko shave stick produced explosive lather, this stuff never fails to impress me, its absolutely fantastic.

Decided to use my first ever aftershave which i actually got from my dad who got it from his today , it has an amazing clean scent.

I finally retired the feather hi-stainless after 38 shaves!!

Razor: Wilkinson sword classic
Blade: Wilkinson sword (3)
Brush: Omega 49
Soap: Arko shave stick
Aftershave balm: aquaeous cream
Aftershave: Bahama mist EgoImage
