Lots of stuff coming into the ShavingStuff test lab these days. Last week we got an email about a new company called By142 (pronounced b. y. 142) which has launched a line of skin-care products backed by some high-end chemistry. And this week we've received two for a test drive.
First up is Scar Repair, a product designed to heal "the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of new and existing red or raised scarring." Scar Repair contains Rejuvenox (among other ingredients), "previously only used in the military and medical field for wound repair." Serious? Yep. Now available to you and me. It's like the Hummer - previously only available to the military; now available to all. OK, maybe not the best example, but you get my point. What was once only available to the elite, is now available to John S. Public. (The 'S' stands for "Shaver".) We'll be testing it on razor burn and overall recovery after shaving.
We also got a tube of Skin Repair,
The most technologically advanced multi-purpose cream to immediately treat and heal the skin for redness, irritation, inflammation and itching; due to damage caused by the environment, post UV or wind damage; allergic irritants, insect bites and rosacea; topical dermatological procedures.
I plan on letting this tube loose in the kitchen and seeing what it whips up for dinner. And also trying it out as a post-shave healer.
By142 is available at Nordstrom's and Sax Fifth Avenue, both online and off. Individual products range from $35 to $50, and there's a travel kit for $80.
We'll be testing these out over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for our results.
