The Braun Pulsonic Series 7 790cc is a sweet machine for the guy who uses an electric razor. My experience with it led me to call it the Ultimate Shaving Gadget, because it's well-built and feels great in the hand, it gives a very close shave with a minimum of noise, and the cleaning stand and electronic monitor make it easy to care for.
Right now, you can pick up a Braun Series 7- 790cc for 37% off the regular price - just $171.27, down from $269.99.
Plus, when you buy one right now, you'll also get an additional $50 Amazon.com credit, so it's an even sweeter deal!
Pacific Shaving Company just announced its biggest sale of the year, with free shipping on all orders over $20! This means that you can get gifts for all of the natural shavers on your list, right from the comfort of your couch, without spending a penny on shipping charges.
"With natural and certified organic ingredients, our unique, low-lather formula is about to become your skin's best friend. But this isn't only about closer shaves - it's got you covered before, during and after. Here's what you can expect:
For guys who favor old-school shaving and classic style, a great holiday gift pick is a well-built shaving tool that will last for as long as they do. The Merkur safety razor is one of those classic accessories that do the job well, and look great while doing it.
Merkur safety razors are solidly built and well balanced in the hand, giving the user a great shave with minimal effort. Add to that the affordability of double edged razor blades as compared to cartridges or disposables, and the Merkur is a winner all around.
One of the most popular models is the long handled version (great for guys with larger hands), but the barber pole (my favorite) and heavy duty models are also great picks for holiday gifts for the discerning man.
This year, give the gift of smooth - a smooth back, that is.
One of the most popular manscaping accessories this year is the Mangroomer, a tool which lets any man shave his own back, without having to ask for help from his significant other (or his buddy!)
"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."
The Mangroomer is on sale for just $25.99, down from the regular price of $39.99, so it's a good time to buy!
For shavers who use disposable razors or cartridges, going to the store to buy more can be a serious investment, as the prices seem to keep rocketing higher. But what if you could use the same razor or cartridge for many times the length you normally do?
That's what Blade Buddy aims to do, to save you money by letting you continue to use the same cartridge for a much longer time, without sacrificing on the quality of your shave.
Here's how they explain it:
"Problem: Every time you shave, the edge of your razor blade gets microscopically bent, rendering your blade "dull" after only a few uses.
Solution: Gliding your razor up the Blade Buddy's micro-honing, grooved surface straightens the bent edge back into alignment, restoring the sharpness of your blade. So one blade gives you a close, comfortable shave for months, instead of days."
If you can get a great shave from the same razor for several months, then by spending $20 on the Blade Buddy, it will pay for itself and then some rather quickly.
Remington has become the first razor maker to integrate some of the design and user experiences we demand from other products, such as touch controls, into their trimmer:
"Bring your look into the 21st Century with the Remington Touch Control Beard and Stubble Trimmer. Experience the power of precision with the new LED touch screen that puts the control of your trimmer's length and speed at your fingertips. 175 different length options and three turbo speeds offer you the versatility you want to style your own unique look. Break away from the wall with the portable USB charging cord."
"OK, did I let another man spread hot wax on my ass and rip it off? Yes. Was it worth it? Totally. But this story doesn't start with me on all fours in a spa room. Nope, it begins a couple of months ago when I spotted a small but effective thumbnail ad in City Weekly."
There's more to the connection between moustaches and music than the 70s, and with Mustachiness, you can see your favorite song displayed as a moustache:
How the Mustache-otron Works: For each song, the peak loudness per segment is pulled from the echonest audio analysis to create the wave form. The following factors determine the mustaches final look in a very scientifical fashion:
Curviness - Curves occur when high loudness deltas are detected
Thickness - Mean loudness
Divot - (aka gap in the middle) hotness of the song
Direction - Up = higher energy; Down = lower energy
Curl - Dancability * energy
Color - Energy of the song. Lower energy is darker
The moustache at the top of this post is "Stairway to Heaven", in case you were wondering.
Tax policy professor Dr. John Yeutter and the American Mustache Institute have proposed a "Stimulus To Allow Critical Hair Expenses", or the STACHE Act, to provide up to a $250.00 annual tax incentive for Mustached Americans. The reason? According to the proposal, "the social and environmental benefits to mustache growth and maintenance provide a service to the U.S. economy."
"Given the clear link between the growing and maintenance of mustaches and incremental income, it appears clear that mustache maintenance costs qualify for and should be considered as a deductible expense related to the production of income under Internal Revenue Code Section 212." - Dr. John Yeutter, Ph.D., CFP®, Associate Professor of Accounting and Tax Policy at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, in his White Paper "Mustached Americans And The Triple Bottom Line.

The moustache is on the rebound, now that Movember is here. We tend to celebrate celebrity and historical figures' moustaches and refer to the implied manliness of wearing an epic 'stache. But not all moustaches are benevolent.
"The mustache (moustache) is celebrated worldwide as a symbol of all things machismo. We know it wasn't just Wyatt Earp's Colt 45 Revolver that helped tame the West. Anyone unlucky enough to stare down that barrel knew the last thing they'd ever see was that well groomed, stash curled upward and pristinely trimmed just above the lip.
Yet as with all things awesome, some asshole has to come along and ruin it for everyone else. Here are a few history's most diabolical men who've used the power of the mustache for evil."
