Phoenix Frost Byte vs Fine Snakebite

I am readying for the warmer weather and will need this years menthol section and associated AS.

Last year, I enjoyed Proraso Green tremendously. I wanted something a bit chillier for this summer. It typically takes me 4-6 months to go through a puck so one is plenty for the season. (If it won’t go rancid, I could consider both)

I have narrowed it to PAA Frost Byte and Fine’s Snakebite. There are others but several have ingredients that don’t mesh w my skin.

I am really enjoying Fine’s products and have wanted to try Snakebite and have no experience with PAA but am a sucker for their marketing and am considering their syn brushes to add to my collection.

Anyone have an input as to which chiller I should try?

Wholly Kaw Fern concerto menthol has insane amount of menthol and Stirling has varying degrees of menthol as well (Glacial and metholated). Stirling Mentholated soaps seems to be slightly colder than Proraso green so the glacial would probably fit your search well.

I'm not sure about PAA or Fine although I'd like to try them as well.
 
Look at the Barrister and Mann Terror combo too; I work outside and in the summer nothing is better after work than a Terror shave.

The combo of the soap/AS together lasts for several hours.

Do not buy if you have small children that might touch your face afterwards, this stuff is no joke. It’s a synthetic menthol, so no tears from application but you do NOT want this in your eyes.

CFG's Cryogen is considered by many to be the baseline for dark-side-of-the-moon cold menthol. I certainly haven't found anything colder if that's a criterion....

Thanks, gentleman, I do appreciate these alternatives, however, I did the research based on another mentholated thread from a while ago, and looked carefully at the ingredients of many of these and other options, and narrowed to these two choices only, for now; there are some ingredients in many of these my face won't be happy with.
