Some of you may know that I post on a blog ( http://thepathtosmoothness.com ) between me and the owner of the site we try to keep a steady flow of posts for your enjoyment.

I would like to do an in depth review on some menthol soaps. I propose that you add your favourite menthol soap here - please only 3 as a maximum.

I will then take the top 5 from all entries across this forum and a couple of others and do an in depth review of them all together in search for the best summer menthol soap out there!

menthol soaps aren't necessarily my thing, per se, but i remember stirling glacial wintergreen being overly intense for me.

Stirling Glacials come to mind when I think menthol. Obsidian or Wintergreen.

2 oft overlooked but great menthol choices: 
  1. Valobra Menthol soft soap: purest ingredients, gentle menthol mixed with balsam - my fav classic
  2. Simpson Mint & Rosemary: great lather & shave; addition of rosemary makes for a unique & delightful menthol

I'll give my three
1. Reef Point Soaps - Sublime very light on the menthol
2. Tiki - Citrus mint blast a bit more than sublime bu still pretty light
3. QCS - Iced Key Lime more of a face freeze but not to the glacial or cryogen levels
Good luck

Thanks guys keep um coming, Kramperts Frostbite seems to doing well all around.

I am surprised I haven't seen much mention of Barrister and Mann Arctique!

Cryogen is coming up quite a bit to and Mile High Menthol.

I'll second Mystic Water Prospect Creek. Only tried a sample but definitely a great Summer soap, IMO.

The only one I've ever used with much consistency is Stirling's "Margaritas in the Arctic", which is really cold and nice.
