Introducing the no!no! for Unwanted Hair You Know Where

The Daily Candy had a story the other day about the no!no! - a new hair removal system for hair you know where.

No!no! is based on an exciting new technology called Thermicon™, which uses the scientific principles of thermal transference to conduct a gentle pulse of heat to the hair. It features a unique innovation: a thermodynamic wire to transmit the heat to the hair.

There's a layman's write-up of how the no!no! works on their technology page. It's interesting, but I think most people would rather not read it. A thermodynamic wire? Why are you telling me about a wire when I'm about to shave my cooch? I'm sure the researchers who developed the no!no! are proud of their acheivement, but I think the rest of us just want to that it works, not how it works.

That said, this is professional hair-removal technology now available to the consumer. So expect a price which is somewhere in between. The no!no! will set you back $250.

"Everything you need to get started with no!no! is here: 3 short blades, 2 long blades, a storage bag..."

Sounds like we're playing Dungeons & Dragons.

New York Times on the Rise of the Philips Norelco BodyGroom

nytimesBodyGroom.jpgThe New York Times had an article last Sunday on the rise of the Philips Norelco Bodygroom. Seems a year ago before launched the subject of men's hair grooming anywhere other than the head was taboo.

Today, the Bodygroom is one of at least four products in what’s seen as a distinct and fast-growing category; nearly 250,000 body-hair trimmers have been bought in the United States in the last year, according to NPD data (which does not count Wal-Mart). “Nobody was talking about this category,” Olstrom says. “Now it’s completely out in the open.”

Click on over to the New York Times article for a few pearls of wisdom from the marketing geniuses behind "Robe Guy". And make sure you see the new "Follicle Phil" video if you haven't already.

The Philips Norelco Bodygroom is $34.99.

'Follicle' Phil Fontana and the Philips Norelco Bodygroom

Oh man, are you in for a treat. Pull out those headphones or make sure no one else in the office can hear, then surf on over to the Philips Norelco Bodygroom website Yeah, yeah, I know. Funny, but you've seen it before. Hold on - there's a new installment. Click on the "see how the Bodygroom saved the beach" beachball in the lower right corner, sit back, and enjoy.

This mock-umentary takes you through the brutal origins of unsightly body hair removal and makes you realize just how far we've come. Truer words were never spoken from 'Follicle' Phil Fontana, one of the poor souls who suffered through early barbaric hair removal innovations, just to get the girls. I shed a tear at the end for Frank Sack, the broken inventor, as his body hair was scattered from a boardwalk on Coney Island. So real.

Philips Norelco Bodygroom - $34.99. Removal of unsightly body hair - priceless.

The Hair eRazor Pubic Shaver

A reader wrote in recently about the Hair eRazor pubic shaver and I figured, hey, it's summer time. People are trimming down there for the beach. It's time for another pubic product. So check out the Hair eRazor, which, for $47.50 (plus $6.95 for shipping) comes with a free trimmer to help you get your pubes into a manageable, shaveable state.

And for a somewhat amusing comparison between the Hair eRazor and the always strong selling Seiko Clean-Cut, check out I found this paragraph particularly entertaining:

Much is made about the difference between Japanese manufactured shavers and Chinese. The truth is that Chinese quality is now excellent. For example China is where your IPOD comes from. The Chinese are so advanced technologically that they are one of ONLY three nations to have put a man into Space. Nearly 99% of all shavers are made in China including some shavers which claim to be "made" in Japan but are actually made in China and simply assembled in Japan or vice versa. In short you can get a top quality pubic shaver with all recent the technological advances FOR LESS by buying the Hair eRazor.

Oh, snap! Japan, you just got served.

This Just In - Philips Norelco BodyGroom

philipsBodyGroomSmall.jpgPeople often ask me "Russ, you talk a good talk. But can you walk the walk?" Well, all my talk is about to get put to the test. Seems Christmas came early in ShavingStuff land and a couple of Philips Norelco BodyGrooms showed up on our doorstep last week. One of them had my name on it. And while I may write the occasional pubic shaving piece, I've never actually shaved anything besides the whiskers on my face. However, for the love of the game, I and several other lucky ShavingStuff volunteers will be putting the BodyGroom to the test.

The BodyGroom website all but guarantees an extra "optical inch." But what if you're metric? The instructions say "The Groomer should only be used on skin below the neckline." Is that true? Those answer and more, coming soon in the review.

Just to be clear, I will not be posting any before and after pictures. We've got keep some level of decency.

The ShavingStuff 2006 Holiday Gift Guide

holiday_guide.jpgTrying to figure out the perfect gift for a loved one this year? You've come to the right place. It's the 2006 ShavingStuff Holiday Guide, and it's jam-packed with home runs from the shaving world. Hey Santa - I've been good. Real good.

Shaving Kits
Shaving kits are great way to go in the sub-$100 range. They generally provide shaving cream and a post-shave moisturizer, and are a great way in introduce someone to a brand's shaving system. Additional items often include handy travel bags and pre-shave cleansers. Here are some we think are winners:
MenScience TSA-Allowed Travel Kit $78
Daily Shave Kit from Menscience $55
Anything from the ZIRH holiday gift center $50 - $70 (and one for $239)
Baxter of California Shave 1.2.3 (with Dopp Bag) $75
The Hits Vol 1 from Billy Jealousy $50
The Perfect Shave from Anthony Logistics for Men $50
a|MEN|ity Limited Edition Gift Set $250
Still not seeing it? Surf on over to the Details for Men kit page and see what strikes your fancy.

We like power. Three, four, or five blades, shaving is better with power. Want the Cadillac of razors? Get the Fusion. Mid-range SUV? Schick Quattro. The old work-horse? M3Power.
Gillette-Fusion Power Razor and 4 Cartridge Pack $22.99
Schick Quattro Power $12.95
Gillette M3Power $6

Electric Razors
Electric razors are a great way to shave if you're beard grows slowly, you've got tough skin, or you just need a quick shave. They're also a great travel alternative where you can't predict your sink and lighting. Here are a couple we recommend:
Panasonic ES8077S Vortex Hydraclean System - $109.99
Braun 7505 Syncro UltraSpeed Shaver - $89.99
Norelco 7745X Cool Skin Wet / Dry Electric Shaver - $109.99
Panasonic ES7801S Triple Blade Wet/Dry Rechargeable Men's Shaver - $49.99

Sometimes you have to dress your shave up. Accessorize! For that old-school barbershop shave experience right in the comfort of your own home, we recommend the Conair Hot Lather Machine. For those ingrown nasties which verge on requiring surgery, we recommend the Tweezerman. And for hair growing in places it shouldn't, we recommend the Remington Nose & Ear Trimmer.
ConAir Chrome Hot Lather Machine - $29.99
Tweezerman Stainless Steel Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze - $8.97
Remington Nose & Ear Trimmer - $5.99

Head Shaving
As we said last year, you could shave your head with a regular razor, or you could shave your head with something specially designed for the job. Hey - it's still your head.
HeadBlade Classic (in yellow) - $10.95
HeadBlade S4 (Signature Series Stainless Steel) - $74.95
DOVO Head Shaver - $19.99

Back Shaving
You may think you're bringing sexy back, but if you're bringing hairy back, you're bringing lonely back. Luckily there's a solution, aside from being mistaken for Azamat from the Borat movie.
MANGROOMER Back Hair Shaver - $39.95

Pubic Shaving
Last, but certainly not least, we have the category of pubic shaving. Men just love that extra optical inch provided by the BodyGroom, and women (and men) just love that smooth, clean... well... you know.
Philips Norelco BG2020 Men's Bodygroom - $34.99
Seiko Cleancut - $53.25

Mega Mega's Review of the Philips Norelco BG2020 BodyGroom

Every so often I like to check in on items we covered in the past, and since the BodyGroom remains a hot seller, we're looking at it again today. Now there are a ton of articles and reviews on the web, but the one that everyone seems to have picked up on is by Amazon reviewer Mega Mega. Everyone is quoting Mega Mega's review of the BodyGroom. Sometimes you've got to follow the crowd.

Lets just say the "Bodygroom" is Shaft, Beanbag, and Starfish safe. No nicks or any worries...that does not mean go in there like a maniac...take your time [...] Here is a word of warning, if you are a hairy man in the posterior / back (buttocks cheeks) region, I would not suggest going bald there...although the bodygroom does yield very smooth results, re-growth maybe a little annoying. [...] All in All the boodygroom is a great product and offers a safe way to prep those sensitive areas. I can not at this time give you a female perspective on this product...I can only assume that it will yeild similar results...I will keep you informed of any new developments.

And if Mega Mega suddenly turns into a female, we'll keep you informed of that development as well. The Philips Norelco Bodygroom is $39.99 at Amazon.
