Hot Deal: Feather Double Edged Razor Blades, 50 count
Are you a safety razor kind of guy? Know someone who is? Stock up and save on one of the best double edged razor blades available!
The Feather Razor Blades Hi-stainless DE blades are my personal favorite, delivering a smooth, effortless shave every time. The blades also last longer than just about any other DE blade, so you'll also save money by buying less blades!

These blades feature a platinum coating for enhanced comfort and will fit most traditional double edge razors. Made in Japan, the platinum coated Feather is exceptionally sharp but will reward you with the closest shave."

Final Voting is Open for Wahl Man of the Year Contest
The people have spoken. Tens of thousands of votes nationwide have been cast to whittle down the field of those in hairy pursuits in the Wahl Trimmers Man of the Year contest. Now, 45 finalists - from novices to beardies - sporting the most well maintained and inspired facial hair in America stand at the foot of the facial hair pedestal waiting to be crowned Wahl Man of the Year. Beginning Nov. 22, 2010 and running through Dec. 13, 2010, the public may cast their vote at http://www.wahlnation.com. A 42" flat panel HDTV will be awarded to the winners in each category in early 2011.
Beginning in May 2010, Wahl's mobile barbershop crisscrossed the country to celebrate and locate first class facial hair for the Wahl Man of the Year contest. Thousands of men submitted a creative photo exhibiting their facial hair prowess. Now top honors are at stake for the grand prize.
"This year's contest is expected to get pretty hairy," said Wahl celebrity and master barber, Ben Phillips. "People came out in droves to enter the contest sporting a bevy of facial hair styles. We're excited to see what styles are deemed most popular by the American public this year."
Along the tour, Wahl used the new Lithium Ion grooming tool to handle the wide array of facial hair. It is the first tool to harness the power of lithium ion technology - the most technologically advanced rechargeable battery available. Interchanging heads allow for facial hair trimming, ear and nose hair detailing, shaving, hair clipping and all other necessary grooming. The Lithium Ion is also a great gift idea for the 64 million men nationwide who sport facial hair.
Right now, the Mangroomer is only $18.91, down from the regular price of $39.99, for a savings of 53%!
"The Mangroomer Do-It-Yourself Electric Back Shaver is absolutely the best way to get rid of unwanted back hair. This one-of-a-kind device features a large 1.5-inch blade that enables you to shave larger areas of your back with ease. The Mangroomer's cutting-edge blade design delivers extremely close and smooth results without the potential of ingrown hairs that are commonly caused by straight edge and foil shavers. And with the unique patent-pending design, the Mangroomer opens to a staggering 135-degrees so you can reach all areas of your back from different angles with ease."
Part of the selling point for this shaving cream is its claim to reduce beard growth with usage:
"Designed by a real life Blue Beard who was bored to death with being a Desperate Dan look-alike, The Bluebeards Revenge™ is a paraben free, premium quality shaving cream with added ingredients to specifically combat tough stubble. It has been formulated to our unique specification in one of the UK's premier male cosmetics laboratories who are renowned experts in the field of shaving cream.
Contains Decelerine™ - Reducing beard growth and providing a recovering effect on the skin. Decelerine™ contains a mixture of active ingredients that delay hair growth, reducing the frequency of shaving and depilation and at the same time providing a recovering effect on the skin."
Now, I can't speak to those claims, as I didn't notice any difference in the growth of my stubble, but perhaps it takes a longer period of usage than my trial. Or perhaps my beard isn't blue enough...
However, I did like the thickness, the ease of lather, and the slipperiness of Bluebeard's Revenge, and got a solid shave every time with it. The smell is pretty manly, but not overpowering, and my face felt smooth and non-irritated afterward.
So if you've got a very thick "blue beard", and you want something a little different, give Bluebeard's Revenge a shot. Even if you don't experience a delay in stubble growth, you'll still get a top-notch shave.
Lest anyone believe that there is away around the TSA's new anti-terror screening, Geraldo Rivera is here to set the record straight: even celebrities get their junk touched. Rivera visited Juan Williams on the O'Reilly Factor last night to share his recent flying experience: "they say 'Hi, Geraldo,' and then they proceed to give me the most invasive, insulting, intrusive body pat down." No one is safe.
"I'm offended like I was offended during the drug war when my mustache made me the person who was targeted."
Get a Daily Moustache Video and Help Raise Money for Men's Health
You probably can't avoid hearing about Movember during this month, but just in case you've been under a rock, we're raising money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LiveSTRONG by letting our inner moustache come out.
I've been making both a daily moustache and a daily video about men's health for my Movember campaign, but so far, the donations have been pretty slim. So I thought I'd put it out here for all of you shaving enthusiasts...
Check out my latest videos at Team Soul Patch (also on my Movember page), and if you can help by donating or sharing the videos, please don't hesitate - men's health is an important issue.
"We've read about the urban playboy, the new lad, the soft lad, the metropolitan and the Spurmo (Single Proud Unmarried Man Over Thirty). There was also the himbo, the mIMbo (male instant-messaging boy) and the notion of "mandom" - a kind of girl power for men who use hair gel.
Whether you considered yourself to be more of a "retrosexual" than an "übersexual" (the latter featuring in a 2005 report by advertising agency JWT ominously entitled The Future of Men), or even a "pomosexual", we were apparently living through a "menaissance" in which we indulged in "manscaping" (ie, shaving and washing). Even straight-as-a-die A-types could enjoy an unashamed "bromance", which in everyday language is known as a friendship.
So far, so marketing. But what maketh a man in the mirror of the media today?
Art of Shaving Donates $10,000 to Movember on behalf of Nick Swisher
Last week, Yankee All-Star Nick Swisher received a ceremonial shave at The Art of Shaving Barber Spa in Beverly Hills to show his support in the fight against cancer this November with "Movember." Swisher will be joining thousands of men participating in the month-long event that encourages men across the world to grow out their mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues. Swisher will serve as captain for The Art of Shaving team, rallying men across the country to join the fight.
Hot Deal: Panasonic ES8243A Arc IV Nano Rechargeable Razor
Ready to replace that old electric razor with something a little more up to date? Sure, there's the ultimate shaving gadget, but if you're also looking to save some serious cash on this purchase, check out this hot deal at Amazon:
"Nanotechnology was used to polish the industry's sharpest 30-degree blades to achieve even better cutting performance. This razor's expanded cutting surface not only provides an efficient shave, but it also spreads the pressure, which naturally occurs when applying the shaver to the skin, so users have found it to perform without the irritation found on lesser models. The fourth finishing blade provides an additional cutting opportunity not found on triple-blade shavers. In addition, the foils and blades on this razor are "arced" so they nestle gently into the skin for our closest shave ever. The foil glides evenly for uniform shaving on all surfaces of the face."
"A common problem faced by men the world over is that of smelling like something that isn't awesome enough. We all know that coconut smells great, but have you ever seen a coconut burst into flames from sheer excellence? No, you haven't. That's why we've created the most comprehensive collection of badass aromas ever."
"The new Philips Norelco Speed 8240 features 50% more shaving surface for a fast close shave. The new Contour Following System follows the contours of the face catching each hair with one stroke. The shaver simply rinses clean for easy maintenance. The Precision Cutting System features ultra thin heads with slots to shave long hairs and holes to shave the shortest stubble. Super Lift and Cut Technology ensures a close shave with a dual blade system designed to lift hairs to cut comfortably below skin level."
"For centuries, the moustache has played a vital societal role. Moustache functions include a display of virility and a method of attracting a mate (best used in conjunction with a chest wig), a means of communication between men, a storage device for food particles, and a way of proclaiming proudly to the world that the shackles of youth have been shed.
Recently, this iconic element of masculinity has been marginalized, as moustache-heroes like Tom Selleck and Burt Reynolds have been replaced in women's affections by hairless youths, such as Zac Efron."
