Taking A Shine to All Over Shaving

AllovershavingI think a clean body is a thing of beauty. I think a clean shaved body is simply magic. Imagine expanding your grooming requirements to your entire body? People in Britain in the next few weeks will have that chance.

dailyrecord - TAKING A SHINE TO ALL-OVER SHAVING:
BRITAIN'S first electric shaver designed for men's bodies rather than their chins goes on sale next week. Millions of men are opting for the shiny look sparked by the hair-free example of footballers such as Frank Lampard and Freddie Ljungberg. Removing unsightly hair to leave pristine chests, backs and armpits is a growing trend, with nearly half of men admitting to shaving their bodies. And thousands are shaving the bits that only their nearest and dearest get to see, according to electrical firm Philips as they prepared to launch the £35 Bodygroom shaver. But the trend has led to many men getting cut and sore because they use normal razors or even their girlfriends' hair removal cream. A company spokesman said: 'Until now, the hair removal options on offer to men have been limited, prompting some worrying improvisation, using ill-suited products.'

The latest iPod mod: PodShave and PodShaveLady

podshave.jpgWhat will they think of next? An electric shaver attachment for your iPod? The online magazine Playlist has this review of the latest in integrating music and shaving. Is there anything this device can't do?

The idea is as simple as it is inspired. A white plastic clip that features a vibrating shaving head attaches to the top of the iPod via the iPod's audio and remote ports (the remote port attachment is necessary as it provides power to the shaver). The bundled CD includes the software necessary to add a Shave command to the iPod's main screen (the disc's Music folder also includes a welcome collection of DJ mixes of the classic "Shave and a Haircut" in MP3 format). The Shave command can be turned on or off via the Main Menu command in the iPod's Settings screen.

Read the full review here, and pay special attention to the dates.

Review of Remington MB-45

rem_mb_45.jpgOne of regular readers writes in:

Hi ShaveMaster: I have been trimming my beard weekly for probably 20 years with a succession of Wahl trimmers. Why a Wahl trimmer? Because it is just like the one that the barber uses to finish up your haircut. It is black and you plug it in and it buzzes away. There is a plastic attachment that you put on the cutting head which sort of regulates how long the beard hair will be when you finish. You are supposed to lubricate it after every use, but when the little tube of oil is empty, that's that.

Thinking I might as well have a beard trimmer at the house in NH (instead of carrying the Wahl back and forth), I did some Internet research and bought a Remington MB-45. It is now a different world. This trimmer is able to trim my beard in half the time, leaves the beard hairs soft to the touch and accurately adjusts to the beard hair length that I want. It is rechargealble, can be used with cord or cordless (throw it in you bathroom kit for traveling) and the blades are titanium so they stay sharp. Also, no lubrication necessary. The settings for beard hair length can even give the younger generation that "stubble look". The trimmer also has a small pop up trimmer for shaping hard to reach places.

So what to do with my old Wahl? That's easy. For another $30, I have Remington MB-45 trimmers at my house in NH and at my house in MO.

Remington sells the MB-45 at their website for $33.99.

TITANIUM TURBO Disposable Electric Shaver

titanium_turbo.gifHere's a first - a disposable electric shaver. And it's cheap! www.gettitaniumturbo.com offers their T2 Titanium Turbo for only $9.99.

The TITANIUM TURBO is the high performance electric shaver at a low price ($9.99). It's small and easy to handle, yet performs like a full-size electric. It has a special razor-like design for perfect precision. A smooth shave is guaranteed. Titanuim Turbo makes a great gift for friends or Family.

A word of warning about going to their website. Turn off the sound on your computer or plug in headphones first. They've got a streaming Flash infomercial which starts up right away. It's informative, but annoying if you suddenly blast your office with Mr. Upbeat's gushing praise.

Remington Travel Electric Razor

microscreen.jpgIs your man on the move? Does he travel light? No room for a bulky electric shaver? Then get your hubby the Remington MicroScreen® Compact.

The MicroScreen® Compact Battery Shaver is designed for people on the go. With it's compact, ergonomic design, this product is perfect to use at home, at the gym, in the car, or anywhere.

I wouldn't recommend replacing your regular electric shaver with this little guy. Generally electric razors which run on batteries tend to give a slightly less powerful shave, especially as the batteries start to run out. But as a portable, this little guy sings. And the cool blue design will have heads turning.

Braun Activator System

dryshaving.jpgI used to shave every day with a Remington electric razor. Then I discovered Braun. While I now use a traditional blade razor I still keep the Braun around for the occasional touch-up, and after 5 years it still cuts like new.

If you're looking for a new electric razor I'd recommend checking out the new Activator System, which Braun is marketing as "the World's best self-cleaning shaver".

The new Activator shaving system has a revolutionary new Smart Foil with differently shaped holes that captures hair growing in any direction for a closer shave in fewer strokes, even in problem areas like the neck.

Activator also features Clean & Renew, the world's most advanced automatic cleaning centre, which keeps Activator feeling like a new shaver everyday.

From experience I can say that plenty of your beard ends up inside the electric razor, and cleaning it, while helpful to your shave, is something you rarely do. If this things works as advertised it's worth it.

Philishave Turbovac Review at Pocket-lin

Okay - now this is a great idea. The hair the electric razor shaves off - get's sucked up in the razor completely. NICE!!!!!

"The saying goes that If you haven't experimented with facial hair before you are 30, then the likelihood is that you won't ever. Lets face it chaps, we've all been there, gone on holiday, had a lazy weekend and then looked in the mirror and thought hmmm, I wonder what it would look like. For the most part the wife or girlfriend won't let you get past that prickly stage and it's off within a flash, but for some, the experience becomes one that stays that little bit longer."
