    I generally use Lynx Cool Metal. I wouldn't say it has much of a cooling effect but its grey metallic gloop does, well, look kinda cool.

    What do you gents use and, more especially given this hot weather, recommend?

    Anything by Original Source and if you want a menthol kick, then try the tea tree and mint one. I thought I was going to lose my gonads!

    I'm still using up what I got for xmas! Currently a bottle of lynx!
    Last used was a body bar from NuSkin - utter garbage - lasted about 6 showers before it was a soggy mess...

    Badedas is great. Really nice scent.

    Dove do a nice one in the grey and blue bottle too, clean linen kinda scent.

    Little Goat Soap Company bar soap when the skin gets dry and/or irritable.

    I love me some Original Source minty shower gel. Separates the men from the boys :D

    That or Nivea Sport.

    Certainly does, I first used it after a 30 mile cycle commute to work. The temperature differance was not ideal.

    Definitely the first time, there is an element of "what on earth is going on here?", then you learn to either love or hate it. It's very Marmite in that respect. Perhaps this is how Scotsmen feel in the depths of winter :D

    Haven't used a gel in years. For me it's good old soap, sometimes a cheap one or a Valobra. There are some nice Portugese ones too.

    I'm working my way through an Yves Rocher Cuir Vetiver shower gel which I got bundled with the EdT. I have yet to wash with anything that really lingers so it's a matter of enjoying the shower and in general I'd say anything goes. On the other hand, why am I then, when it comes to shaving soap, obsessed with fragrance?

    Usually I use Sanex, but I also have about 8 x 100ml tubes of Tabac left, so I alternate. When I am home at weekends I have a pile of L'Occitane, Molton Brown & Elemis (accumulated Xmas & birthday presents that are going to take bloody years for me to get through).
