This Just In - Urth

UrthPerfectTravelKit.gif
Our friends at Details for Men sent over another shaving kit they recommend - the Urth Perfect Travel Kit, which features:
  • Face Wash, 2 oz
  • Shave Formula, 2 oz
  • Face Balm SPF 15, 2 oz
  • Face Scrub, 2 oz
  • Mesh Travel Bag for easy storage

First of all - face balm with SPF 15. Excellent. Even in the winter. Ever get sunburned from light reflected off snow? Not fun. Plus, your face is drier in the cold. Second - White Tea. Ever smelled it? Heavenly. I swear you could get rid of every other scent in the world besides white tea and I'd be fine. I can't wait to try this product line out.

From the Urth website:

We have perfected our formulations using the best-of-class ancient Asian herbs, pure essential oils, vitamins and phyto-nutrients. At urth, our focus is on efficacy, we infuse key active ingredients in our products that are vital in helping protect a man's skin from damage caused by the environment and the stress of daily life. Our formulations are light and clean in aroma, non-greasy and leave the skin looking fresh and healthy throughout the day.

Score one for yourself or a loved one at Details for Men for only $59. Tack on a free B. Kamins Sea Protein Foaming Cleanser with any order over $50 and you've got yourself a deal. Plus choose your own free sample.

Foreman(.com) - Manage the Mind and Body

Here's another men's grooming and shaving website which is worth a look - Foreman.

Many guys want to look good, but they want to streamline the process of getting there. Instead of sorting through every product available they would rather get right to the best. The Foreman concept was developed by a couple guys and a girl (just to get that female perspective) to achieve that very goal. [...] We do the testing and provide only the highest quality products for a man’s daily regimen.

Hallelujah. Nothing worse than reading tons and tons of opinions, only to be more confused than when you started. (Hmm... maybe I should condense some of the posts on this site.) Anyway, Formen offers quality brands like Jack Black, bullie, Anthony Logistics for Men, and The Art of Shaving. They've also got you covered in areas like face, sun, and tools. If you're still into the Mach3, check out their selection of eShave 3 Blades Razors with cool translucent handles. Are those from the future?

If you're in a pinch this holiday season, check out Foreman's kits and gifts page for some great suggestions at reasonable prices.

Finally, check out the Grooming Tips section of the site too. Clear and concise articles on all topics including shaving, face, hair, and fashion. And when no one else is looking, scroll down to the "Sensitive Subjects" section and read every single entry. If any of these apply to you, remedy the situation immediately. Don't worry, they've got recommended products ready to go.

Sharps Heavy Gear Travel Kit at Target

As you probably have read from my previous posts, I have a love/hate relationship with Target. That extends to Target.com as well, due to their use of Flash (with which I have a hate/hate relationship). So, once again, I'd like to link you directly to a very cool shaving kit from Sharps, available at Target.com, but I can't. Instead I can only give you instructions. Here they are:

1) Click over to Target.com/HolidayCatalog.
2) Move the slider in the center of the page in the red band to pages 34 & 35.
3) The Sharps kit will be on the lower right side of the right page (page 35).

Wasn't that easy? Thanks Target. And thank you Flash.

Anyway, the Sharps Heavy Gear travel kit is actually a pretty sweet deal.

A bag for the office, gym, or traveling filled with travel-size Barber Brigade face wash/scrub, shave gel, toner and after-shave gel.

All for $29.99. Would make a great holiday gift...

Shaving Websites Which Ship Outside the US

logo_skinstore.gifShavingStuff reader Cam recently wrote in and asked that we mention a few shaving sites which ship outside of the US. Shame on us for being so Ameri-centric. Cam recommends SkinStore.com, GroomingLounge.com (which wasn't up when we checked last night), and MenEssentials.com.

SkinStore has a regular mail catalog which you can request here. Get 10% off your next order if you sign up. MenEssentials has gift certificates if you want to let your giftee decide what to get. mensessentials.jpgAll the brands you know and love are represented, plus a bunch you've probably never heard of. Plenty of other gift ideas too.

I was able to confirm that SkinStore will ship all around the world. MenEssentials may only ship to the US and Canada.

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.

Razors
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

Accessories
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

Buzzskin Says It's Time To Start Thinking About Gifts

buzzskinLogo.jpgSure, Christmas isn't for another two months, but just think - Christmas is only two month away! Time to get a jump on your gift buying. Wasn't that your resolution after last holiday season?

Buzzskin's got you covered in the shaving world with their Gift Guide. Neatly categorized into Under $25, $25 - $40, and Over $40, there's something for everyone. Me - I hope I get the Baxter Journey Man - Travel Kit or the Jack Black Shave-In-A-Bag. Santa, I've been good. Honest.
