Billy Jealousy Gets Personal With Gifts

mel_free2ozchristmas4.jpg
In the age of big corporations and outsourced phone support, it's nice to come across a company that still has a personal touch. Today only, buy $40 worth of grooming products from Billy Jealousy (at their site) and you and a friend will both receive a free 2oz bottle of Hydroplane shaving cream (which is one of the absolute best shaving creams out there, and we should know).

Here's the personal part - place your order on billyjealousy.com, then send an email to Melissa at Billy Jealousy telling her the name and address of the friend you'd like the Hydroplane to go to, and she'll make it happen. What? No online impersonal form? No faceless click? I'm so not used to interacting with people the way. It feels weird... and good, at the same time.

We've purposely not mentioned Melissa's email address, but you should be able to figure it out, Sherlock. If not, click the picture above for an expanded view and look in the lower left corner. Damn you spammers! You have to make everything difficult.

Industrial Size Hydroplane Shaving Cream From Billy Jealousy

indus_hydro.jpgLet's say you've got to shave an industry. Or more likely you're a futures trader hedging against the rising price of shaving cream. Either way, you're going to want to know about the industrial size Hydroplane shaving cream from Billy Jealousy. A full one liter of their "super-slick" shaving cream for a mere $65. How many shaves do you get from a liter? A lotter. I don't think I can count that high.

Now if you don't know about Billy Jealousy's Hydroplane, I suggest you click on over to our November '05 review and read up on the magic of tiny silicon balls.

Historically, the best way to achieve a close shave was to create a thick foam so your blade would ride a cushion of bubbles. Today with the creation of water-soluble micro silicone beads, thick foam has become obsolete. Water-soluble means that water doesn't permeate the silicone. As a result, Hydroplane becomes slicker and slicker when you add more water as you shave. The upshot? Your razor now floats over your face without any razor drag or irritation.

Two things: 1) Billy Jealousy industrial size Hydroplane shaving cream should not be used as a lubricant for anything other than your face. And 2) Don't try to board a plane with it in your carry-on.

Two New Products from Billy Jealousy

liquidsand1.jpgWHITE_KNIGHT_dailycleanser.jpgBilly Jealousy introduced two new products recently which may have gotten lost in the holiday mix - Liquidsand and White Knight. Liquidsand is the finest south pacific beach sand, boiled, pulverized, and reduced to liquid form. Perfect for face and scalp. White Knight is literally a fossilized medieval knight shoved in a bottle. A natural antiseptic.

Kidding. But I had you going for a minute, right?

Liquidsand Exfoliating Facial Cleanser ($24):

Less penetrating than a scrub but more powerful than a face wash, LiquidSand cleans thoroughly to remove dead skin cells, dirt and related grime. Preps skin for a less irritating shave without overdrying. LiquidSand's pearlized, non-foaming formula is gentle enough to use every day.

White Knight Gentle Daily Facial Cleanser ($20):

Perfect for normal to dry skin, White Knight Daily Facial Cleanser contains essential moisturizing agents to provide necessary hydration while cleansing skin. The white, foaming, pearlized formula gently cleans without stripping skin of essential oils. Make White Knight a part of your daily regimen.

Billy Jealousy Combination Code Face Moisturizer

ccode1.jpgBilly's hit another home run with the Billy Jealousy Combination Code Face Moisturizer. Got a little dry skin? Or maybe you want to re-hydrate after you've washed that that T-zone. Guess what? Combination Code has Green Tea. Perfect for T-zones.

GREEN TEA, CHAMOMILE & CALENDULA: Antioxidants; help protect the skin from environmental and endogenous damages

Funny side note: You know how they say "tea" in French? "the" With a little accent thingy. Must be impossible to search for tea on the Internet if you're French.

Billy Jealousy Combination Code Face Moisturizer has a pleasing scent. I can definitely smell the green tea, with subtle floral and citrus hints behind it. Also, it's thicker than most facial moisturizers I've tried, which I like. You need less of it to cover your face, and I think the extra thickness will be great for the winter when your skin is a little drier.

Billy Jealousy Combination Code Face Moisturizer is $26 for a 3.5oz tube.

Two New Products From Billy Jealousy

Billy%20JealousyGoldenandcombination.jpg
Billy Jealousy just added two new products to their amazing men's grooming line - Combination Code Face Moisturizer and Golden Gloves Therapeutic Hand Lotion.

Combination Code Face Moisturizer ($26):

Tell Father Time to get bent with Combination Code Face Moisturizer. Lightweight and easily absorbed, Combination Code will hydrate, smooth and soften your face in no time. Unlock the code to great-looking skin.

Golden Gloves Therapeutic Hand Lotion ($28):

Rough, dry hands will become a thing of the past with Golden Gloves Therapeutic Hand Cream. A tropical brew of botanical extracts like Monoi de Tahiti, Golden Gloves absorbs quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize your hardworking mitts.

And here's the cool part - be one of the first 50 orders to buy both and get a free 8 oz bottle of Hydroplane Shave Cream. Um, that's stuff's good. In fact its like the best we've ever shaved with. Oh, and I just got this promotional email late this afternoon, so there's a good chance if you order now you'll be one of the first 50.

Sucker Punch from Billy Jealousy

suckerpunch.jpgBilly Jealousy just added new item to their fine line of men's grooming products - Sucker Punch Face Scrub. As the name might imply, it's going to be a little rough on your face. But in a good way. We're talking exfoliation.

Dislodge dirt, dead surface skin cells and other impurities with Sucker Punch Face Scrub, a powerful combination of crushed walnut shells, vitamins and essential oils. Sucker Punch will give you the edge you need to go all the way, champ.

Ever wonder what became of those discarded walnut shells? Well now you know. I wonder if there's a need for pistachio shells. I'm a master at those.

Sucker Punch Face Scrub is available now for $18 for a 3.5oz/103mL bottle.

Illicit - The New Cologne for Men by Billy Jealousy

illicit.gifThe creative juices are still flowing over at Billy Jealousy, and this time they've concocted a new secret formula designed to enhance your "sophisticated bad boy" image. Introducing Illicit, the new cologne for men, the latest in Billy's expanding line of quality men's products.

Now I'm not really a cologne guy, so when they say "Lush Citrus Bergamot forms the foundation of this wicked new fragrance, while a smoothe intermission of Ivy and Ginger lead to a cool finale of Tea and Sandalwood," for all I know they could be talking about a chardonnay. But I will tell you this, Illicit smells pretty darn good. It's subtle and not overpowering, yet noticeable and arousing enough for ShavingStuff wife to ask me to use it again later in the evening. Apparently I'd been a very bad boy.

Illicit packaging comes with Billy's trademark wit:

WARNING: Keep away from heat, flame, minors and probation officers. ILLICIT can only be shipped via ground due to hazmat regulations.

Illicit is $65 for 3.4oz (100mL) and is available now.

Introducing Cool Medium Hair Gel from Billy Jealousy

Another new product from Billy Jealousy. What's going on with these guys? That's like one a month for the last three months. First there was Fuzzy Logic shampoo, then Cashmere Coat conditioner, and now there's Cool Medium hair gel.

For serious styling and that irresistible well-hydrated look, apply Cool Medium, a lighweight medium-hold hair gel, to damp hair. Style as desired. Feel cool. Look hot.

We've come to love Billy Jealousy, starting with their amazing shaving products. (Read our review here.) And now Billy's got our head covered with their new line of hair care. Cool Medium is available today for $15 in a 2oz tub. It also contains DHT blockers which help prevent hair-loss. Good thing, since without hair, you'd have no need for hair gel. See how smart these guys are?

The Best Shaving Cream

hm_btn_logo.jpgThere's still nothing like the killer combination of Billy Jealousy's Hot Towel pre-shave cream treatment and Hydroplane shaving cream. Mix a little of each into your palm and apply to a warm wet face. Let those magical little silicon balls form a slick surface for your razor to glide over, cutting only the whisker. Read the full ShavingStuff review of Billy Jealousy here.

zirh.gifIf you're more of a gel shaver, the advance word around the ShavingStuff shave studios is Zirh Shave Gel. While we're still in the process of reviewing it, ZIRH shaving gel looks to take top prize in the gel department. Key factor (aside from a great shave) - completely transparent. Perfect for the modern facial sculptor.

baxter_cream2.jpgFinally, if you're a fan of applying your shaving cream with the soft hair of a badger shaving brush, we recommend Baxter of California's Super Close Shave Formula. No false advertising here. You will get a super close shave. Read the full review of Baxter's Super Close Shave Formula here.
