I can say with some level of certainty that I am definitely a menth-head!!!

Today’s shave with Frost Byte was a real kick, especially for that first pass of the head shave. The menthol kicked in soon after the first pass, I felt chills down my spine. Continuing on with the shave, the menthol lingered and left me feeling refreshed.

Again, the scent got into the nose while I continued on with the face shave. Two passes, WTG & XTG. The first pass was a little dry, so half way through I rinsed off, applied the PAA Cube again, and lathered up again, and another glorious shave. Not sure what happened that first time, but a second attempt left a lovely shave.

I’m certainly in love with menthol soaps, they will be high on my purchase lists going forward.
