I got a pack of menthol crystals from Amazon... Put about 3 crystals in a 2/3 bottle of Pinaud Clubman.

Shave:

ATT S2
Astra SP 3rd shave
ARKO stick on the face
3 pass WTG, ATG, XTG
Alum after the cold rinse...

Splash with the Pinaud ICE.


WOW, what an awesome shave and great chill after! Awesome, just awesome!

I found that 4 crystals made it a little cooler and I am at that point now.  I believe I want to go cooler, but one needs to go slow, as a little goes a long way! Smile

Weighed the crystal on my powder scale and one crystal was ~1 grain.  So four grains of crystals equate to a nice chill.

I put 1 grams menthol cristal in 100 ml Pinoud and is ok. It seems the same like Floid Vigoroso.

I have also experimented with putting crystals in plain Dickinson's witch hazel. I dissolved ~ 7 grains worth in a few drops of 98% alcohol then added to ~ 100ml of witch hazel; has a nice cool chill and great face feel. The smell seems awful to me though, but the odor dissipates quickly. I use it pre and post shave.

One gram is like around 15 grains according to google foo.  Must be chilly!!  Big Grin

Until couple month ago I didnt like mentholated after shave. 
Then I try an sample of Floid Vigorosso and i realy love the sensation.
After that I prepared all my after shave with menthol crystals.
I read somewhere is ok for cosmetic use a proportion of 0.5-1%
I think I become an menthol addicted .
Unfortunatly in my country we dont have a big range of wet shaving products so I must order from net, special from Europe.
I was lucky to finde in Germany some Osage rub.
I heard is the moust mentholated after shave.
I cant wait to try it.
Please excuse my english!
