"Jesus Shaves" T-Shirts

Last week we featured a fully-bearded Jesus on our Celebrity Facial Hair Friday segment. This week we feature a clean shaving Jesus, now in wearable T-Shirt form! Yes, it's the Jesus Shaves T-Shirt, available from BustedTees.com in men's sizes small through gut-busting triple XL, and women's sizes small, medium, and large. That's right folks, for only $17.99 you can display the lord's clean-shaven love proudly on your chest, while eliciting a slight chuckle from your friends.

Lordy.

Dovo - The Very Best In Nose Hair Trimmers

Want the Rolls Royce of nose hair trimmers? Look no further than the Dovo - $29.95 and free shipping from C. Crane (.com). You may recognize the Dovo brand from their stylish and highly praised straight razors, but don't try sticking a long sharp blade up your nose.

Precision and sharpness are essential for nose hair trimmers, and this one always keeps a perfectly fine edge. Great for trimming around the ears, too, and it does the job without batteries.

You've got to admit, the Dovo has got to be the most beautifully designed nose hair trimmer out there. I mean, look at that polished, gleaming metal. Your nose deserves no less. Time to get rid of that $9.99 Sharper Image special and upgrade.

Would You Like Ants With Your Razors?

fusion_razors.jpgA couple weeks ago we posted about Gillette Fusion razors at Amazon - an 8-pack was only $14.99. (If you missed it the price is back up to $24.99.) So I bought two 8-packs, thinking that for less than two bucks a razor it was a good deal. This morning a box from Amazon showed up at my office, filled with ants. Live ants. Oh yeah, I think there were some razors in there too.

After smushing most of the ants that hadn't taken refuge in my keyboard, I surfed on over to Customer Support at Amazon and sent in feedback which went something like:

Shipment of razors arrived. Box included live ants. I didn't order ants. Requesting an RMA so I could return them... (the ants)

Well score one for Amazon's customer service. Later this afternoon I received an email from Neeraj:

I am sorry to hear about the problem you experienced with your shipment. I have placed a new order for the item. There is no charge for this replacement. [...] If you need to contact us again about this return or the replacement order, please visit the following link and select "Returns & Refunds"

So after all is said and done, it appears I will end up with 32 Fusion razors for only $29.98 - less than a buck a razor. And a bunch of ants. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Thanks Amazon! Maybe you could include a bottle of RAID with the next shipment.

Gillette Fusion Razors - 8 for $14.99

fusion_razors.jpgPrices are starting to drop! An 8-pack of Gillette Fusion razor cartridges has fallen to $14.99 at Amazon, for a limited time. That's less than 2 bucks a piece, or about 31 cents a blade if you count that sixth little guy. It's also about half the price of the Fusion Power razors, which we thought shaved as well as the regular blades, and even cheaper than RazorsDirect, which is usually the cheapest place on the net. Any way you look at it it's the lowest price we've seen by far. Snatch these bad boys up before Amazon comes to their senses. Buy two and get free shipping!

The Caldo Razor at Target

caldo_razor.jpgTarget. You know it. You love it. It's the friendly Walmart. It's not as big, and you don't feel as threatened when it moves into your neighborhood. And, they're big on design. With celebs like Isaac Mizrahi developing exclusive home decor and fashion, or Rachel Ashwell doing her shabby chic thing, Target has emerged as the leader in attainable, affordable design. And now the have a razor.

Introducing the Caldo Razor, available now at Target for $29.99. The Caldo takes Gillette Mach3 blades, and makes a great upgrade to your gummy original Mach3 handle which is probably a bit of an embarrassment at this point. The Caldo is unpowered, so don't make the switch unless you're into the power-free shave.

Now, I'd like to link directly to the Caldo so you can find out more for yourself, but it appears that the one thing Target can't design well is their website. Here's the best link I can give you. Once there, mouse over "Featured Products" in the center section, and then use the right arrow to scroll over to the razor. But wait, once you click on the razor you can easily miss it. That's because depending on where your mouse is placed you'll either see a picture of a well-dressed man or the Caldo. Ridiculous. Come on guys. Drop the Flash and let us link directly to your pages. Oh yeah, and make the razor available online. I'm lazy and into ecommerce.

Shave 'n' Cut Gama-Go T-Shirt

Want to be the coolest shaving kid on the block? Then you need the Shave 'n' Cut Gama-Go T-Shirt. Never heard of Gama-Go? Hmm... OK, find a kid, preferably male, slightly nerdy, yet oddly fashionable. Or go to gama-go.com:

In late 2000 Greg Long & Chris Edmundson started screen printing tee shirts and working out of the basement of Greg's house to help showcase some of their friends artwork. It was a great way to help promote the local San Francisco art scene and get their minds off the drudgery of their day jobs.

Might sound mundane but trust me, Gama-Go is ultra hip. The Shave 'n' Cut Gama-Go T-Shirt is only $28 and is available in blue and black. Go on - shave a couple years off your wardrobe.

Grooming-Health.com

groominghealth.gifJust got word of a new website which sells shaving products - Grooming-Health.com. For those of you in the US these products may seem a little unfamiliar - Grooming-Health.com specialized in more of the high-end European brands, (but they'll ship to the US.) Tons of shaving creams from Geo F. Trumper (which you may remember from a recent New York Times article), toners and moisturizers from Bullie, straight-razors from Dovo, and brushes from Kent. And, according to our contact there,

to my knowledge we sell the cheapest cut throat razors and Merkur double edge safety razors in Europe

"Cut throat", for all of you state-side, is British for "straight".

Grooming-Health.com also has a great FAQ with specific sections on shaving, skin care, and more. Here's my favorite entry under the "Why We Shave" section:

Psychological studies have found 'women find male faces most attractive when they are masculine-looking but not ultra-masculine.' Women want dominant males, but ones friendly enough to care for offspring, they tend to see these traits in clean-shaven faces.

Isn't that what we all strive to be? Dominant yet friendly? Click on over to Grooming-Health.com and learn the perfect balance of masculinity.

High-End Shaving Gear from Penhaligons

Laura from sister site ShirtSnob sent in this link to the English company Penhaligons which has some high-end shaving gear for the high-class shaver. Check out the Nickel Shaving Soap Bowl (£30), picture to the right. Or how about the Black Marble Shaving Set (£45) to help store your brush in an upside down position so it dries properly.

Don't miss the rest of their shaving and grooming products on their site. They ship to the UK, the EU, the "the rest of the world." How Euro-centric.

More Hot Lathery Goodness from Conair

OK, I'll admit it. When I wrote about the Conair Chrome Hot Lather Machine last month I couldn't imagine who might buy one of these things. Turns out a lot of ShavingStuff readers have. I was wrong. This just might be the sleeper shaving gift of the year. So, without further ado, let me present the full line of Conair hot lather, lotion, and gel machines:

First, there's the Conair HLD20 Heated Lotion Dispenser - $23.54 at Amazon, for heating up lotion to a comfortable temperature before it hits your face:

2 Minute Heat Up Time. Variable Heat Control. Works with Any Lotion. 16 Oz. Dishwasher Safe Reservoir.

In the lather department, there's the Conair HLM10R Hot Lather Machine - $23.45 at Amazon

Designed for easy one-handed use. Heats up in approximately 1 minute. Works with standard size or large size shaving cream cans. Ready indicator light

Next, there's the Conair HLM11L Chrome Hot Lather Machine - $16.99 at Amazon, which has all the features of the HLM10R plus it's chrome and it's cheaper.

The previous two models are for shaving cream only. No gel allowed. If you're a shaving gel man, you'll want the Conair HGM15 Hot Gel Machine - $20.65 at Amazon.

Finally, if you're a switch-hitter, you're going to want the Conair HGL1 Gel and Lather Heating System (pictured) - which retails for $29.99 and seems to be sold out on Amazon and on Conair's website, so I'd suggest Froogle.

So there you have it. Conair's full range of hot lather, lotion, and gel products. Get 'em while they're hot!

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.
