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).
