They billed it as private, but I think it's OK to open it up to all ShavingStuff readers. men-u is having their first ever private sale on all their men's shaving and skincare products. We first came across men-u back in October when we were looking into shaving brushes, but they've got a whole line of products for all your skincare needs - shaving cream, aftershave moisturizer, even travel kits.

So here's the skinny:

  • 25% off all products.

  • Free Shipping to your address or gift recipient's address (For orders over $39.99)

  • Free Premium Gift Box automatically sent with the purchase of Shaving & Travel Kits, or 4 or more products

Just enter the promotion code "holiday" when you check out. Sales ends Tuesday December 27th, so you've got a little bit of time.

Zia in the Hizzouse!

A couple weeks ago we wrote about Zia's new men's shaving sets - the Skin Hydrating Gift Set and the Skin Clearing Gift Set (both $19.95). Well, the good folks at Zia sent over one of each for review and they arrived last night. Thanks Zia! We'll be putting them through our normal ShavingStuff test-drive over the next couple weeks and will have a review just as soon as it's ready. In the meantime, consider these gift sets at the holidays approach, especially if you've got a man who insisted on all natural ingredients.

More Clips on

screen.pngJust a quick post to let you all know that has put up some new video clips, continuing their spoof infomercial. Haven't been to Well, let me say this... it's interesting. This is Schick's website devoted to the Schick Quattro Power, made to look like a cheesy infomercial, "As Seen on TV"-style. Some of the clips are kind of humorous. Some feature Kato Kaelin. And some verge on showing an attractive woman. Overall they're not as edgy or indy as you'd want from a website. But hey, it's Friday and if you're stuck at the office, click on over to and view a few clips. At least the production quality is high.

And if I may muse for a moment, why they didn't get (like is beyond me. Why the domain is still available is crazy, by hey, that's why I'm not in marketing.

Free TurboScrub at Heavy Duty

Heavy Duty is gearing up for the shopping season with this special offer - buy $30 worth of products and you'll get a free travel size TurboScrub (aka exfoliant). Here's their description:

HEAVY DUTY TurboScrub is the ideal way to get your skin in mint condition. Large granules of pumice, apricot, and walnut shells remove surface skin cells and soften and polish the skin. Perfect on feet, back of the arms, and any other dry areas on the body.

You may remember our introduction to Heavy Duty over the summer when we came across them in a rather prestigious auto show. Love their packaging. Definitely check out AutoStrip ($16) if you're looking for a new shaving cream, and the JumpStart Kit ($25) makes a great gift.

The free TurboScrub offer ends December 20th so start those engines.

Yeah. This thing is sleek enough that we're breaking with our standard right-aligned thumbnail template and plopping it full size right smack in the middle.

The shave set includes a solid, classic stand, sleek razor and a luxurious badger hair brush; all plated with "Nickel" of the highest quality.

Learn the Proper Way To Shave From Anthony

We mentioned Anthony - Logistics for Men back in July when we wrote about their shaving kit (which is now $50, reduced from $78). If you didn't check out their site then, please do so now. Anthony's instructions on shaving are perhaps the best we've seen on any website. Take every point here to heart - from shaving on a clean face, using cool water in your final rinse, and patting your face with a towel (not rubbing) when you're done. The detail he provides is right on. The problem solvers page is similarly great, with product recommendations to treat specific ailments.

Aside from shaving and other men's products, Anthony's also has a shampoo and body wash for "Little Men".

A gentle self-foaming cleanser that softens and conditions. Leaves baby smelling fresh and clean. Will not overly dry hair or skin.

Now baby can use the same products as daddy. Cute!

New Men's Shaving Products From Zia

What's new From Zia Natural Skincare? Two new men's shaving sets, just in time for the holiday season. Set number one is the Skin Hydrating Gift Set, "designed specifically for men with sensitive or dry skin that is prone to razor burn." Set number two is the Skin Clearing Gift Set, "created for men who are prone to breakouts or razor bumps." Both are only $19.95, marked down from $42.85, and both come with a little travel bag.

I first saw Zia products at our local Whole Foods. I guess that makes sense given their product philosophy:

Our formulas feature whole foods products, therapeutic-grade essential oils & herbal extracts. Zia Natural Skincare formulations only utilize ingredients that provide a benefit to the skin, and that are not harmful. You will never find harsh chemicals, artificial colors, or artificial fragrances in our products.

So why should you care about Zia products? Ever heard of Ashley Judd, Virginia Madsen, Alicia Silverstone or Ben Stiller? I thought so. They all have one thing in common. Great skin. And that's no coincidence. I wonder which shaving gift set Ben Stiller's getting for Hannukah?

Review of KENMEN Products, part 1

The good folks over at KENMEN sent us a bunch of their products recently and as you're about to read, my wife, herein refered to as "ShavingStuff wife," had about as much fun as I did trying them out. KENMEN has a wide range of men's products which cover the ordinary, like shaving creams and after-shaves, to the non-traditional, like eye gel and skin tints. See our earlier quick introduction for a few more details.

Now let's get one thing straight - these are advanced products. Basically you need to know what you're doing or be comfortable enough to ask. Me, I had to ask. ShavingStuff wife was very helpful, as was the KENMEN site. The KENMEN products all have clever names, like Battlescars, and Ener-C, however the bottles and tubes themselves don't always give the clearest indication of how they are supposed to be used.

flake-off.jpgTake Flake-Off Facial Exfoliating mask ($33), for example. ShavingStuff wife insisted that "flake-off mask" means you apply it to your face, let it dry like a mask, and then let it flake off. I, on the other hand, thought it was more like a regular exfoliant where you just rub it across your skin in the shower and then wash it off. Somewhat unclear, and since there really isn't enough product in the tub for a full facial mask, we eventually settled on regular exfoliant usage. One thing we could agree on - the stuff smells great - like you're covering your face in oatmeal cookie batter. Yum!
