Chris Bailey remarked in one of his videos that a mentholated shave soap is a good choice for a hot summer day and I personally never thought about it but he makes a valid point.
My first shave cream was Poraso green, and it's almost done. I liked it but think there could be better (artisan or mainstream) mentholated soaps.

Any suggestions on a good mentholated shave cream? 
(I have yet to ever try Poraso greens croaps in the tub, are they better than the cream?)

There are many great mentholated soaps, and they range from a pleasant gentle cool to downright frigid! Here are some of my favorites, ranked from less to more chilling:

Reef Point Sublime
Reef Point Tranquility
Proraso Green
Caties Bubbles Mile High Menthol
Krampert's Finest Frostbite
PAA FrostByte

One that I like is Khiel's Lite Flite Shave Cream for the Brush.  It's excellent, in my opinion.  Just avoid the brushless one they make.

In the "Cheap as Chips" category........

Not soaps, but there are some terrific menthol creams out there.

Ingram Lather Shave cream. An old english budget cream with lanolin, a very nice performer..
Super-Max Menthol: A Bulgarian cream, also a nice performer.
Godrej Mist: The mentholated of the great Indian shave cream.
Bob: 

Good Lather = More product + More Water + More Time lathering

I agree on the Ingram. Haven't tried the others.

There are some really cold, artisan-made mentholated soaps:
- Chiseled Face Cryogen (maxed out menthol)
- B&M Arctique (comes back July 11)
- Stirling's Glacial soaps

I second Chiseled Face Cryogen and B&M Arctique (which gives Cryogen a run for its money). I've also used Yeti Snot, which is very cold, but can be tricky to lather.
You may try First Canadian Shave Soap's Esther's Peppermint & Grapefruit. Not straight up menthol, but very refreshing while having some "flavor" to it.

I believe soap commander vision is awesome. As well as Stirling iced pineapple or Stirling margaritas in the attic. Or there is the second route. Go on Phoenix artisan and buy the ice entail pre shave soap. You add that on your whiskers before lathering any soap and it make it mentholated. I love doing this. Or there is also the new dr jons artic hydra. Mentholated citrus

I like Chiseled Face "Orange creamsicle" it's actually the first mentholated soap I tried and It's really nice; it's pleasantly cool but not overpowering.  I'm looking forward to trying some of Dr.Jon's "arctic hydra" soon as well.  "hydra" became one of my favorite soaps upon my first whiff, Very excited to see a mentholated version.

I like Maggard Razors Orange Menthol Tallow based menthol soap, and the matching aftershave Smile
