I think it's a cream actually. They sell it at Whole Foods with KMF and other assorted goodies like Thayer's Witch Hazel :-)

Agreed, Rich. I have also enjoyed lathering the mint up with Tryphon Permafrost. It doesn't increase the frostiness of Permafrost at all, but it does smell fantastic.

Yes. It is a cream, and a darn fine one.

Try Tom's and you might start doing them.

Never tried the Permafrost but it sounds like a great match for Tom's.

3 shaves within 1 week is usually unheard of for me. (It's one of those slow beard growth + being retired = once a week shaves) This week was differant. I had guitar lessons on Saturday, and 2 Dr's apointments this week, so I wound up with 3 shaves this week. Was quite pleased with the result.

Implements of mass destruction:

brush: Tweezerman pure badger
strop: Black Bear brand - freshly treated with neats foot oil.
soap: bay rum from ebay with a touch of Proraso from the bst thread
razor: Barclay brothers spike
three passes wtg, atg and xtg
results: bbs with only a one spot of razor burn or scrape, styptic pencil took care of it in no time.
A/S balm: Bigelow Bay Rum a/s balm (love the smell of this stuff)
Krew Kut stick for my hair and I was good to go.

Friday
  • Prep: regular (shower, towelling dry, remoistening the beard with warm water)
  • Cream: The Bodyshop 'For Men Shave Cream'
  • Brush: Shavemac silvertip badger
  • Razor: Gillette M3Power on a non-vibrating handle
  • Method: 2 N-S passes, 1 ATG pass, minor touching up
  • Aftershave balm: The Bodyshop 'For Men Razor Relief'
  • Eau de Toilette: Floris 'J.F.'
A bit of a hmhm-shave again. I think it was a combination of too wet a lather and a blade which has seen better days. My skin pulls a little near the corners of my mouth, so I have a mild case of razor burn. Not pleasant. Will have to be extra careful on Sunday.

I discovered what was bugging me about Floris Santal: it lacks freshness. It would be a good basenote scent on me, once the heartnote is beginning to fade. But that's not what Santal is about: precisely that heartnote is all spicyness, backed up by a powerful, sweet and heavy basenote. With some regret I shelved the sample vial---clearly a case of wanting to love, but ultimately unable to.
