Introducing Cashmere Coat from Billy Jealousy

After a long holiday weekend it's tough to get back into the swing of things. So how nice was it to come home to the latest product from Billy Jealousy - Cashmere Coat strengthening conditioner. You may remember that Billy recently introduced Fuzzy Logic shampoo, and now the long awaited companion conditioner is available.

Sun, wind and pollution can rob your hair of its natural strength and luster. Banish these to the dark side with Cashmere Coat Hair Strengthening Conditioner: a peppermint infused conditioner with DHT blockers that restores strength and essential hydration to your cherished locks.

Cashmere Coat is available now online at $22 for an 8 oz bottle. And don't forget - "A portion of the proceeds [...] is donated to the BIlly Jealousy Fund supporting human needs, the environment and the arts." Think about it - you can have great hair and save the world.

I'm Old

bj_on_myspace.jpgHi. I'm old. Know how I know I'm old? Because I don't get MySpace.

Now you might say "Russ, you blog. That's young and hip." And to some extent, you'd be right. But the real generation gap in my book is MySpace. If you get it - young, if not - old. I, sadly, am old.

Billy Jealousy is now on MySpace. You remember Billy Jealousy - one of our favorite shaving creams out there. And now he's on MySpace. Smart move. Why? I have no idea. I just know it's smart.

So if you use MySpace, and chances are you do, click on over to www.myspace.com/billyjealousy and become a friend. Or leave a comment. Or do something. And then tell me what you did, so I can learn how to be young again.

Review of Billy Jealousy's Fuzzy Logic

As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, our friends over at Billy Jealousy have introduced a new shampoo into their line of skin care products called Fuzzy Logic. They sent us a sample which we've been using now for about 5 days. Now I don't really know much about shampoo, or what to look for when reviewing it, but here's my one piece of anecdotal evidence - ShavingStuff wife remarked (totally unprovoked) "Hey, you smell good." after I used it for the first time. Is it possible that I've never smelled good before? Naw. Must be the shampoo.

Fuzzy Logic has a nice, pepperminty smell to it. It also has ingredients to block DHT, which leads to hairloss. (I had to look that up.) And, according to the back of the bottle:

Unfortunately, Fuzzy Logic does not come with a small stick to beat back your anxious hordes of admirers.

So, to rectify this obvious omission, here is a list of ShavingStuff recommended small sticks:

Fuzzy Logic is available now at BillyJealousy.com for $22.

Review of Billy Jealousy

hm_btn_logo.jpgI had an amazing shave this morning. In fact, I've had many amazing shaves over the last couple weeks. Jealous? Well, you don't have to be. There's enough Billy Jealousy to go around.

Billy Jealousy is a small company in Dallas with a line of "cosmeceuticals" for shave, face, body and hair. Naturally we focused on shaving, and in summation, we give them two thumbs up. We reviewed their Hot Towel Pre Shave Treatment, Hydroplane Shave Cream, and Shaved Ice - After-Shave Balm. Billy Jealousy also has Lightening Bolt Pre-Electric Shave if you're into that kind of thing.

sml_shv_shvdice.jpgOn the outset this is a pretty typical shave setup. Take a shower. Splash some warm water on your face. Add some shaving cream. Go to town. But as we've mentioned before, there's science in Hydroplane. Millions of tiny round silicone sciences, to be exact.

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.

Silicone. It's magic. I hear it's also used in computers.

sml_shv_httowel.jpgLook, this stuff works. There's very little drag even with a razor which is well past its prime. The shave is as close as any shaving cream I've used. And the stuff smells good. Not overly frangranced, just a slight essence of honey. "Ooo! I could get close to that," my wife said as she smelled my freshly shaven face. And she did.

Pat from Billy Jealousy suggested I try two approaches - first shave a couple times with just Hydroplane, then try a combination of Hydroplane and Hot Towel. I really liked the combination better. I put a dollop of both in my hands, mixed them up to form a white goopy mess, and then lathered up my face. The creams are somewhere in the middle of white and clear, so you mostly see your skin although the occasional spot becomes slightly obscured. This is normal for most shaving creams - just pointing out that it's not completely clear like some of the shaving oils we've reviewed before. Personal preference. Didn't bother me. Won't bother you.

Here are the two main points which stood out for me. One: I didn't get any cuts or nicks in five shaves with Billy Jealousy products. None. That's a ShavingStuff first. That's probably a personal first. I can't remember a time in my life where I've gone five shaves in a row without a single nick. And I used the same razor the entire time, so by the end that blade was looking mighty scary. If you're plagued with cuts, nicks, or razor burn, I highly recommend you try this stuff. Get both the Hydroplane and the Hot Towel. Killer combo.

sml_shv_hydro.jpgThe second main point which stood out for me was the shave around the Adam's Apple. I've developed several techniques for contorting my skin so this massive paddle of a Mach3 can cut the errant hair down there. These techniques aren't pretty, and they aren't foolproof. I was amazed that I didn't need to do anything to get a clean shave around my neck. No pulling of the skin. No craning my neck. Smooth shave around the Adam's Apple every time. Nice work Billy Jealousy!

The finishing touch is Shaved Ice - After-Shave Balm, possibly the most appropriately named after-shave on the market. I'm getting shivers just thinking about it. This stuff makes your face feel cold. Perhaps not the best feeling as we're heading into winter, but I can't wait to finish a shave in August. Shaved Ice is not alcohol based, so I don't know what makes it feel so cold against your face, but there's lots of natural goodness in there, from aloe and oat extract to several of your favorite citrus oils.

OK, so you like the car. Worried about the awkward negotiation? Relax. You're at a Saturn dealership.

Hot Towel Pre Shave Treatment - $22 for 6oz.
Hydroplane Shave Cream - $20 for 8oz.
Shaved Ice - After-Shave Balm - $25 for 3.5oz.

And remember, a portion of the price goes to supporting the arts and the environment. So treat yourself to something new. Or put together a shaving gift basket for a loved on this holiday season. Billy Jealousy is sure to please.
