Review of Sharps Kid Glove Shave Gel
Day two of our review of Sharps products. Yesterday we applied some Kid Glove Pre-Shave Stick, today we're shaving with Sharps Kid Glove Shave Gel.
Go ahead and make fun of my lack of manliness. I read the directions:
- Massage a thin layer onto damp skin.
- Wait 30 seconds. Contemplate the goat... feel the kick!
- Using short strokes, shave with the grain of hair growth.
- Repeat (for you Grizzlies, repeat against the grain).
Have you ever really stared at the picture of a goat? I have. Many times now. In 30 second increments. Here's my free association:
My wife and I had our first baby nine months ago. The boy is awesome. He's staring at me. He likes it when I shave. I remember when he was born. That was an awesome day. We learned a lot about childbirth. Huh... Look at that picture of a goat. You know, that kind of looks like a uterus. And two fallopian tubes. And a... Ok, must be time to shave now.
Where was I? Oh yeah. Shaving with Sharps.
The pluses - easy to apply; clear, so you can see what you're doing; very few nicks and cuts.
The minuses - not the closest shave. Not the worst shave by far, but solidly in the middle. I recommend following step 4 (from above) and doing the repeat shave. Maybe not necessarily against the grain, but perpendicular.
I'd rate Sharps' shave along the lines of Anthony Logistics for Men. A good first step out of the world of drug-store shaving creams. But like anyone trying to expand their horizons, you won't truly appreciate the finer things in life if you jump straight to the end. So consider Sharps for the man who needs to learn there's a better shave out there.
Sharps Kid Glove Shave Gel is $13 for a 5 ounce tube.
