Floid Blue Vs Myrsol Blue

Floid Blue: There is nothing I can say about Floid Blue that has not been said a million times on many forums. It is well known that it is one of my all time favorite after shaves.

Myrsol Blue: Let me start this my saying that the Myrsol F/Extra has become one of my favorite after shaves, which in my opinion out performs the Floid Amber, Vigoroso, and Suave. So, when Phil got his order of Myrsol Blue in I thought what the heck, if I don’t like it I will put it on the B/S/T.

Well, lookout Floid, there is a new kid in town. I was pleasantly surprised when I used this product for the first time. It has a slight menthol kick to it and to me the scent is somewhere in between Floid Blue and Aqua Velva Ice. The big difference between this product and Floid Blue is the skin conditioning. I don’t think it actually has any skin conditioners in it, but it does not dry out your skin as much as the Floid Blue does. I have very dry skin so I notice things like that.

If you like Floid Blue or Aqua Velva Ice, I would highly recommend this product. And the big plus for this product is, Myrsol is not playing games with us, as in it’s discontinued, no it’s not, yes it is.

Will this replace my Floid Blue, well not at this time. I have several bottles of the Floid left, but this Myrsol product has made its way into my rotation. When my Floid Blue inventory is gone, I will have a replacement.

Well, that’s my opinion. Buy some and give us yours.

Johnny,

Thanks for the review.

the Myrsol is a bit more expensive on a per ml basis (Floid is .125 per ml vs Myrsol at .178 per ml). Is it worth the additional cost?

Considering you can easily find the Myrsol at several vendors in North America, yes it is, IMHO.

Well you sold me on it. I find myself really enjoying "Blue" scented aftershaves, so my eye had been on this for a while. I'm excited to compare it to Floid for myself, as well as Razorock Baby Blue, which I seem to like best.

Thanks, Johnny. I'm not planning on hording Floid Blue, so it's nice to know something comparable is out there for when my bottle runs out. Assuming it's actually discontinued. Tongue

I'm surprised to hear you feel Floid dries your face out. It makes my face feel very conditioned, which surprised me from a splash.

That might just be a simple function of the larger vs smaller bottle. Larger amounts are always cheaper per unit measure.

Very interesting!
I never tried Myrsol Blue. But if it is something like Aqua Velva or Floïd Blue, then it is definitely something that I want to try in the near future. Cool

My pleasure. I believe you were the one that steered me towards the Myrsol F/Extra.

Johnny, a cool bottle and great review...

I keen to try some for myself now!

Shipping is the issue as always, have you tried any of the other range as I might need to purchase a couple to make it worth while... ?

I have and use the F/Extra, Agua Balsamica, Emulsion, and now the Blue. Their Lime is next on my list to try.

Oh, gee, thanks. I've got 2.1 400ml bottles of Floid Blue and 1.3 bottles of 400 ml Proraso and you've got me thinking about another AS. ;-)

Thanks for the review.

I got my bottle of Myrsol Blue and tried it this morning and was rather underwhelmed. I find the scent to be very fleeting and it dried out my skin. I don't think the scent is as nicer add either Floid or Razorock Baby Blue. I don't think I will be holding onto this one, cool bottle though.I guess that's experimenting for you.

Sorry about that Anthony. It had just the opposite effect on me. Different skin types, age, who knows.

Very true, I'm sure body chemistry plays a huge role. I'm not really disappointed, I have plenty of Floid Blue and Baby Blue left!

Anthony, if you try another Myrsol product in the future you might want to give the F./Extra a shot. It has a much stronger scent and more longevity than the Myrsol Blue.

I'm not a big Floid Blue fan, Johnny but agree with your "next star" review of Myrsol Blue. It's a winner and I'm a fan of all of the Myrsol line. As an aside and for anyone shopping Myrsol, the F/Extra's scent is a very close match to Floid Amber. That's a good thing. Smile

Every time I read something Johnny posts about Floid Blue, I chuckle inside knowing I'm the one that got him started on the stuff lol.

Which has the better scent, Myrsol Blue or Myrsol Agua Balsamica? I know they're two totally different scents but I'm curious. I'm probably gonna fire off an order here soon.
