BodyTools, and a History Lesson

You wouldn't attempt to fix your sink without the right plumber's tools, so don't even think about caring for your face without body tools. That's BodyTools, with a capital B and T. Think of it as Home Depot for skincare.

BodyTools offers an array of skincare products, from "Basix" - like body washes and scrubs, to hair - shampoos and conditioners, to, you guessed it, Face Savers - shaving creams and after-shaves.

Here are some things which caught my eye - their shaving cream has tons of natural ingredients - Lanolin and Apricot Kernel Oil for a smooth shave, Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera for moisture, and Anti-Oxidants for healing. And their After Shave Repair & Protect is SPF 15. Remember boys - too much sun can be a bad thing. Why don't you go inside once in a while and use your computer.

If that's not enough, there's a great write-up on how to shave in their Fall 2004 (or 2005?) issue of The Body Mechanic. Here's my favorite factoid from the opening paragraph:

A man can expect to spend almost 3500 hours in his lifetime removing over 28 feet of beard.

28 feet? Damn. Can you imagine some caveman dragging that size beard around? Thank god someone invented Gillette. Actually, if you read the history of shaving you'll learn that there's evidence of cavemen using pieces of flint in 30,000 BC to shave their beards. Flint. Again, thank god for Gillette.
