Fog-Free Shaving Mirrors

InterDesign_power_lock_LG.jpgAre you a shower multitasker? Do you brush your teeth and listen to the radio while you're shampooing and rinsing? If so, and you have a lot of light in your shower, perhaps you'd be interested in a fog-free shaving mirror.

ShavingDirect has a great selection of fog-free shaving mirrors. Some with suction cups. Some which clip on to your shower head. Some with magnification. Some with an iPod hookup. (Not kidding!) Some with a light.

While I haven't tested all these brands with lights, my general reaction has been disappointment. The lights on these mirrors tend to be battery-powered LEDs with underwhelming brightness. That's why I really only recommend shaving in the shower if you've got a lot of light already.

And if you do, get a mirror! Shaving in the shower is great. No need to worry about making a mess with shaving cream. Easy to rinse off after you are done. Just shave toward the end of your shower after your skin and whiskers have had a little time to soften. Then try to figure out what you're going to do with all that free time.

Product Review: Every Man Jack Shaving Cream

everymanjack.jpgI was at our local Target today, checking our their mega expansion into the building next door, and I found some interesting shaving cream - Every Man Jack. Actually there's a whole line of Every Man Jack men's grooming products from shaving cream to body wash to face lotion. And they're all-natural.

Came home. Did a little surfing. Found this article which had a bunch of positive feedback in the comments. Found this review which hated it. Found this article about Ritch Viola, the creator of Every Man Jack, which talks about the brand's creation, ingredients, and marketing.

The final piece of the puzzle came from industrial designer Wai-Loong Lim of Y Studios. Viola wanted a custom design for some of his packaging. Lim designed the containers for the face wash, body wash and hair care products. The design was inspired by the overall identity of the line, and an unexpected source: an old Mexican tequila bottle. It was perfect.

If you look at the products in the picture, you'll see they actually have a block of wood on the top. Oh, old mexican tequila bottle! You're always there to inspire me when I need you most.

Every Man Jack Beginner's Luck Kit is $24.99. Each individual product is $4.99 or less. If you try them out, let us know what you think.

The Great American Bathroom Book from Ritual

ritual_bathroom_book.jpgWhat do you take into the bathroom to help with your morning business? A magazine? A crossword puzzle? A laptop? (C'mon, we've all done it.) Now our friends over at Ritual have come out with the perfect bathroom companion - The Great American Bathroom Book:

Mark Twain said: "A classic is something that everybody wants to have read, and nobody wants to read." Since you'll probably never have time to read every good book cover to cover, THE GREAT AMERICAN BATHROOM BOOK lets you in on the key points of an all-time great in just 10 or 15 minutes of reading. It's the perfect way to pass time on your thrown.

The King declares "genius!"

The Great American Bathroom Book is $20. And for those whose business is an aromatic nightmare, may we also recommend Ritual's Nature Calls, a toilet bowl deodorizer which works surprisingly well. See our review here.

Reader Review of Barbasol Ultra Sensitive Skin Shaving Cream and Balm

barbasol_014.jpgShaving Stuff reader Keith recently wrote in with this review of Barbasol Ultra Sensitive Skin shaving cream and balm.

I switched to the Kiss My Face line of shaving lotions a number of years ago after trying a sample because I felt it did as good a job as my current shaving cream and better prevented razor burn. I chanced across this Barbasol shaving cream by accident and necessity and was impressed with how much nicer the shaving experience was. I felt it was both a smoother and more effective shave and haven't had any razor burn issues. It is now my new shaving cream. Oh - and the moisture balm is nice at conditioning the skin without any sting or discomfort which is a nice added bonus. I'd recommend these products to anyone with sensitive skin trying to avoid razor burn while getting a nice close shave.

Nice! Sounds like we've got a winner. You can find Barbasol Ultra Sensitive Skin at most major supermarkets and drugstores, typically for under $5.

mancan.jpg
Here's another cleverly packaged Fathers Day grooming kit. It's The Man Can, and yes!, it comes with can!

Don't skimp this Father's Day, get him everything he'll need in one great package - get him the One and Only Man Can!! All the bath goodies a man could handle come in this cleverly packaged kit. Can includes Fisherman's Hand Butter, Fisherman's Scrub Soap, Spicy Shave Gel, Bay Rum After Shower Oil, Body Mitt, and Man Can Container.

The Man Can contains products from the Plum Island Soap Company (whose site is hard to link to due to their use of frames). Plum Island - I spent a week there as a kid. Fun place. Awesome beaches. Don't remember using much soap though.

The Man Can is $44.50.

Gifts for Dad: Anthony Logistics

anthonyGiftsForDada.jpg
Next up on our shaving tour of Father's Day gifts is The Dropp Kit Tray from Anthony Logistics for Men. That's not a typo. This isn't a dopp kit. It's a "dropp" kit.

Empty your change, remove that bulging wallet from your back pocket, take off that watch that you check incessantly to keep up with your hectic schedule, and place your keys (with no worries that you won't know where they are tomorrow morning) on your new personal valet tray.

The Dropp Kit is packaged on a thick, black, Italian Leather Valet Tray made exclusively for Anthony Logistics For Men by Arte & Cuoio.

What? You've never heard of Arte & Cuoio? Yeah, well neither had I. But their designs are pretty cool. Check out their website for a little edumacation in modern Italian art.

Anyway, aside from the leather dropp-ings, the kit also comes with Glycolic Facial Cleanser, Pre-Shave Oil, Shave Cream, and After Shave Balm. The Dropp Kit Tray from Anthony Logistics for Men is $175. Your dad's bulging back pocket will thank you.
