Anthony Logistics For Men Shave Cream

In true "One hand giveth, the other hand taketh away" form, shortly after buying my husband a tube of Anthony Logistics For Men Shave Cream, I comandeered it to use on myself.  Why not?  This fragrance free formula was designed for the tough beard of a man… so it should easily be able to handle the legs of a woman.

While Anthony refers to this product as a "cream", it’s incredibly dense formula is actually more of a cream-gel hybrid.  I was able to use only a small amount (about a teaspoonful) per leg, to get a perfect thin amount of product evenly coating each leg.

While the shave cream is indeed free of fragrance, I noticed immediately a refreshing peppermint scent (I must assume this delicious scent is from the eucalyptus oil included to heal the skin).  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product is donated to prostate cancer research (Anthony’s philanthropy).

This product retails for $16, and is worth every cent!  I’ll certainly be buying more for hubby (and for me– shhhhh!)

Drugstore Chic: Gillette Fusion Razor

razor review, Gillette Fusion, cosmetics reviewEternally in search of a better shave, The Art of Shaving store at our nearby mall lured my husband in like a siren’s song.  After talking to the baby-faced store manager who likely didn’t need to shave more than once weekly, we learned an interesting fact.  Some of the most fabulous razors offered by The Art of Shaving actually use a Gillette Fusion Razor (with a whopping five blades!)

Well, my husband isn’t one to really need a $250 razor, so rather than invest at The Art of Shaving, he took his business elsewhere, to purchase a Gillette Fusion power razor.  He’s been raving about this product ever since, and his face feels silky soft after each shave.

The results I saw on my husband’s face led me to purchase one for myself (but I chose the manual, non-vibrating version of the razor).

Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Multi-Tasking After Shave Balm

Beauty, Beauty Blog, Beauty Blogger, Makeup, Cosmetics, Product Reviews, Makeup Reviews, Raging Rouge, Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Multi-Tasking After Shave Balm, aftershave stingingPoor Macaulay Culkin.  His most remembered expression is the horrific pain he experienced when using aftershave for the first time in the movie Home Alone.  From what I understand, even most adult males are not fond of the after-shave experience.  They’ve just come to accept that the act of using aftershave will cause a bit of biting pain.

My husband has dutifully reported this is not so with Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Multi-Tasking After Shave.  This soothing formula contains botanical extracts to minimize redness and sensitivity, and to hasten the healing process for any nicks incurred while shaving.  Unlike many after shave formulas that rely on heavy doses of alcohol to close the pores (in many brands, the first ingredient listed is some form of alcohol), Peter Thomas Roth’s product relies most on witch hazel for the same effects… a much gentler ingredient.  The fragrance-free formula ensures that sensitive skin won’t be excluded from using it!

A 3.4 oz tube of Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-Lite Multi-Tasking After Shave Balm retails for $24 at Beauty.com.

The 32 oz pump is adorned with the fight against Prostate Cancer’s Blue Ribbon, further highlighting Anthony Logistics for Men’s support and involvement with Prostate Cancer Research.  The Sea Salt Body Scrub is an Anthony Logistics favorite– sea salt exfoliates, sea kelp extract nourishes, aloe vera gel soothes, nutmeg oil tones, vitamin C nourishes.

Anthony Logistics For Men – Spirit Shave Cream

iconMy poor husband was practically forced at gunpoint to use this product the night I received it, such was my excitement to begin reviewing men’s product.

In an effort to placate me, my husband shaved immediately.  He noted that the cream went on thin (he had just read an article in Details magazine that explains a thinner consistency allows for a much more precise and close shave than extremely foamy options).

Later that night, my husband commented that ordinarily, if he shaves without taking a shower first, he experiences irritation post-shave.  After using this product?  Nada!  He’s been using it religiously, ever since.

Added bonus:  Anthony Logistics Spirit Shave Creamicon smells extremely masculine.  No fragrance is required after using this product!  But, if you’re so inclined, men… this fragranceicon is available for purchase, as is a coordinating shower gelicon.

Anthony Logistics Spirit Shave Cream retails for $15, and is available online at upurea, Anthony Logistics and other fine beauty retailers.
