April 2008 Wrap Up for Shaving Stuff

April has come to an end and the weather is finally getting warmer. Looking forward to getting outside with the spring weather. And more shaving. In the meantime, here's what we learned.

Our shaving with Sharps series came to an end with a review of Sharps Kid Glove Oil-Free Pre-Shave Stick, Sharps Kid Glove Shave Gel, Sharps Daily Prep Foaming Scrub, and Sharps Daily Prep Concentrated Foaming Wash. All in all we were somewhat luke warm on the shave, however the scrub and face wash were really good. Currently in the Shaving Stuff shave studios are products from Ritual, so expect a review of them next.

Both Gillette and Schick are getting into the YouTube these days, looking for videos of you doing something clever with a razor. Or just being clever. Schick's got its Get Experimental contest, Gillette's got its Trickstars 08 for the Europeans, and The Search for the Next Phenom for those of you who live in North America. If you've got a video camera and some talent, you could win big.

New Stuff
Got some great new products in from eShave and from John Allan's. Can't wait to try those out. Also ZIRH launched their new Platinum line, for the high-end man. Still waiting for them to add a Platinum shaving cream.

Electric Boogie Woogie
Two razors enter. One razor leave. Who run Bartertown? Braun Pulsonic runs Bartertown. (Yes, I did just reference Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome.) And for the Tina Turners out there, check out the Silk'n Laser Hair-Remover which uses lasers. 'Nuf said.

David Schwimmer joined the growing list of actors-turned-directors who felt the need to show maturity in the form of facial hair. Wesley Snipes joined the list of actors who feel that they are above the IRS. And Charlton Heston left the list of actors. Period. (Sorry, that's probably too harsh. But I liked the symmetry.)

And we'll end with the first post of the month, my April Fools story about Gillette attempting a hostile takeover of Schick. Was it funny? I don't know. My story about the eight-bladed Schick Octo from a few years ago got some good reactions. This one fell on deaf ears. OK, I get it. I'll do better next year. Promise.
