hey guys, today i went for an all menthol shave for the first time. Proraso Green pre-shave cream + katies bubbles mile high menthol. The shave and feeling were amazing, i really loved the feel of my face being wrapped by a sheet of ice cold glass during the shave.

was looking at getting a nice AS splash that would compliment that combo and continue to add that ice cool feeling

any suggestions?

Any splash you like plus menthol crystals to taste.
True story - at last years Darwin meetup @eggbert was explaining the benefits of adding this stuff to an existing aftershave. After a few minutes it occurred to us that it probably wasn't the smartest idea to have a loud conversation about 'crystal menth' in a small cafe with several uniformed police at nearby tables!

If you can find Osage Rub, that's the most cooling AS I've used.
When I use Proraso Green pre-shave, Stirling Glacial soap, and Osage Rub, my eyes sting from the menthol vapours (that's largely the Glacial, though....cripes that sh*t is mentholated).

I notice the OP requested a nice, cooling AS. Not a freezing one!

Proraso Green fits that bill for me. Something about the eucalyptus combination that works for me, although it really shouldn't, at least in theory, with cineole being a skin irritant. No doubt, as usual, "the dose makes the poison".

I have the proraso green AS, but have not yet tried it.. i will def have a crack tomorrow and see how that goes.. have used the PAA CaD which also has menthol and that also provides a cool refreshing feel

lol thanks for that.. will add incrementally.. also is it ok to add these crystals to witch hazel?
They dissolve best in an alcohol solution.
It can be done, yet they will separate, requiring you to shake the bottle.
I should mention, crushing the crystals into a powder is the best bet.
