    Yesterday I was in a department store and I noticed some shaving gel from a company called Supermax, it looks quite good, it has Cypress, Peppermint, and menthol in it, I applied some to my face and you can really really feel it tingle, and you really notice the peppermint smell, it smells really nice, I have yet to shave with it, but I was wondering if anyone else had tried this product.

    It sounds horrible. I'm not sure about cypress, but peppermint and menthol (which is made from mint) are serious skin irritants. That tingling that you feel is irritation, pure and simple. My face would be a bloody mess if I tried to shave with anything like that. If you enjoy the feeling, go ahead and use it. Just don't kid yourself that it's doing anything good for your skin.
