Shave of the day, 23rd May 2019 : Proraso Green Infinite!

Bowl : Vikings Blade Grand Chairman
Brush : Phoenix Artisan Accouterments’s Atomic Rocket
Preshave : Proraso Green, Salt Grinder w/Menthol Crystals
Soap and Post Shave : Proraso Green
Razor : Razorock SLOC w/Derby Extra Blades


What do you do when you live in the tropics, its about 30°c ( about 86°f ) at 4:30am, already taken a cold shower but still feel the need to cool off?
You add more menthol to your shave that’s already a menthol and eucalyptus face bomb. 😁
2 full twist of the good old salt grinder with menthol crystals, worked the lather and the entire bathroom smelt as fresh as an ice box of frozen mint.

Almost 15 mins after the shave and I can still feel the menthol as the morning air touches the face. Good stuff!
I do want to say that those who are also grinding menthol into their shaves, experiment but do be careful. 15-20 mins for the menthol effect to last is pretty much pushing it I think. With 2-3 twists, my face and lips were starting to go a little numb so while I could go a few more twists, that would be going into menthol burn territory. Don’t.
