Metrosexual Moment

Well I thought it would be a good time to talk about this considering I just had a nice shave with that new Mach Fusion 5 Blade Razor. I must say a big difference over the Mach 3 Power Razor. But when I tend to shave I like to wash with the Gillette Facial Cleansing Scrub. Then rinse the face with hot water. I am told it opens up the pores in your face and raises the hair up for an easier shave. I like the standard razor over those electric ones. So then I stick the shaving gel in hot water and then apply with hands to my face. I have found that shorter strokes with the razor offers a closer shave. I prefer not to shave in the shower because you tend to miss some spots and I always feel rushed I would prefer to take the time and do it correctly. I tend to go against the grain since it offers a close shave. Then with the grain to get the missed spots it seems to work for me.

The problem with most men’s shaving cream is they tend to dry your face out. So the key thing to do is moisturize your face after you shave. May sound totally stupid but many many years down the road you will still have that smooth face. I tend to use the Gillette Complete Skin Care Facial SPF15 Moisturizer. Also never apply cologne to your face since it will dry out your skin also.

But the whole reason I am writing this post is I am in need of an answer. I feel like I should go to a meeting and say “Hello my name is Tristan and I have dry skin” but that would tend to be a foolish thing to do and serve no real purpose. I would probably be beaten to death by an army of people who really do need help with their belts and worn down shoe soles. But I digress.

I have dry skin on my hands mostly. For some reason my left hand is a bit worse then others. I bought this one product at Bath and Body Works called “Look Ma New Hands with paraffin” it had a pleasant Citrus smell and would work for a period of time but would lose the effects and come back. Overall a waste of $20. So I thought well the cheaper stuff might have something. But walking into your local grocery store as a single male to buy a bottle of Jergen’s Ultra Healing you feel a bit awkward walking up to the checker buying a bottle of lotion. Because when you walk into Bath and Body works there is someone to help you to offer you the assitance you need for whatever moisture solution you require. At a grocery store I assume the checker will see me buying this bottle and think I have an alternate reason and having been a checker if I know them it could be a topic of a break room banter later in the day.

But that bottle works but you have to apply it 5 times a day it seems to get any result. I really don’t have time to worry about that and don’t want to be having a purse to hold lotion. Times like that I miss having a girlfriend. They never seem to have pockets but carry a bag around. Also nice for sneaking candy and beverages into movies. You wear a big coat and they know what you are doing. (chuckle)

So after all that typing my question is what lotion can you recommend that actually works for dry hands. My knowledge of this stuff is rather limited and something I could pickup with as little mockery as possible would be nice. Thanks in advanced.

    Yes, and electric razor clearly negates the need to moisturize. I got an electric razor a couple years ago, and it ate my face off.

    I did however get the Fusion Power razor a couple days ago, plan on using it tonight, we’ll see.
