Sunday Night Shave - JULY 1, 2018 - PEPPERMINT MANIA!!!
Uncle Jon's New peppermint stick - I HIGHLY recommend this for the peppermint lovers - lots of menthol in the soap, the alcohol free witch hazel splash has a TON of Menthol!! really nice as the witch hazel step - Used the amazing PAA CANE ( my favorite Mint/Menthol splash - even better than OSAGE! haha) to finish it with a tiny amount of 444 rubbed in hand palm with the CANE - such a nice soothing affect.
