SOTD: December 8, 2014 - December 15, 2014

Post by JayDee » Mon Dec 08, 2014 5:16 am

I'll kick the week off for us with this frigid one!

Menthol Monday:

Gatsby Ice Cooling Gel Facial Wash
Large Horsehair Barbershop
Lord Super/Dorco day 5
Stirling Glacial Obsidian SS
Gold Bond Moisturizer
Stirling Glacial Wintergreen WH
Dolce & Gabbana EdT

If you guys want to know about intense menthol, then come and see me - it'll be my pleasure to teach you. Let's start with this Gatsby facial wash - it has plenty of the cold stuff in it and it cleans and refreshes the skin beautifully. Next up is the Glacial Obsidian soap - wowwwwww, a strong black licorice scent and a frigid wallop which hits on contact and causes tearing eyes and a runny nose. Lots of rich, slick lather and awesome skincare as well. Then we have the Gold Bond moisturizer which is scentless and so cooling and soothing, and last but not least the Glacial Wintergreen witch hazel - man oh man, this stuff beats the Rubby Dubby Doo in menthol power!
