Re: AOS Art of Shaving Peppermint shaving cream

Clive, I just popped over to their website. Yes, the good news is that they sell it by the tube. I have no idea whether they still offer the Peppermint.

Re: AOS Art of Shaving Peppermint shaving cream

Synthetic Siblings

Here is a photo of the SynBad synthetic next to the SilkSmoke synthetic. I used the SynBad this morning with the AOS Peppermint shaving cream.
