Since we are getting closer to summer here in Norway am I thinking of buying a mentholated/mint shave soap with cooling effect. Which is your favorite and which would you recommend?

My favorite is Stirling's Cool. Smells like candy cane
Also enjoy C.O. Bigelow it's more eucalyptus scented to my nose.
Just got some Stroppe Shop Alpine Frost that I'm going to try out soon. Will report back on that one.

Thanks guys!
I am so curious about Meißner Tremonia that I ordered their Mint Ice Menthol.
It was shipped within two hours, so great customer service so far.

I haven't tried that many mentholated soaps. But the ones I have and really like when I feel like menthol are:
Prep
Frost byte
Mystic Water prospect creek.

If you're in Norway, then the answer is Fitjar "Frost Rose"!
Or...
Stirling Margaritas in the Arctic
Krampert's Frostbite

Fitjar has shut down their production due to legal requirements.

I prefer a lighter ratio of menthol, so YMMV;

Valobra-menthol soft soap
Proraso Blue-less menthol than the green version
Prep-only tried the tube so far, but they also sell it in a blue plastic bowl
Arko-Moist. possibly the least expensive mentholated cream, subtle stuff
Proraso Green-only tried the older version, the new seems even better from reading reviews

Razorock produced a great soap that I believe is out of production by now so I hate mentioning it: Mentolipto

Krampert's Frostbite is my top choice, but PAA FrostByte is excellent, too. Proraso Green is a solid classic.
Of those three, FrostByte is coldest, and I like the tea tree. Krampert's has the best scent and the companion aftershave makes it plenty cold and lingering.
