How to not use straight razor

15 Nov

Day 13 of 30 for Movember and it’s time to clean up my face with a lesson on how to use a straight razor.

It actually turned into a tutorial of how NOT to use a straight razor since I cut myself pretty fiercely…all in the name of Movember. This video is not for those that hate blood.

Here is the end product:

The Styptic Pencil is my go-to choice for stopping the bleeding.This is a short, white stick of medicine. Anhydrous aluminium sulfate is the main ingredient and it stops the blood from flowing out of your body. The stick is applied directly to the bleeding site.

Here are some pros:

  • Stops the bleeding of small nicks immediately
  • The pain make me feel alive
  • Seals skin surface to help prevent infection
  • you don’t have to stick tiny pieces of toilet paper on your face
  • it’s cheap at $3, which will last you for years of shaving, even if you’re really bad it and cut yourself daily

And the cons:

  • It hurts for a quick second…flinching might occur (see video)
  • it tastes like if an onion farted, and trust me, it gets in your mouth
  • it leaves a white residue on your face that people will stare at if you don’t wash off

I feel the pros easily outweigh the cons for this product, which is why I’ve been using it for the past 15 years. However, the appeal of pain is not for everyone.

Want to go a more expensive and less painful route? It’s not for me, but some dudes like an aftershave balm like this one. You still spread it on your face the same way, but it won’t make you scream like a little girl.

Best advise: don’t use a straight razor unless you have to carve out silly shit on your face.

The Best Safety Razor Review with a 30 Seconds Shave

1 Nov

I’m on a mission to find the best safety razor on the market. Today I’m reviewing the Schick Hydro 5.

Here’s the deal: I shave VICIOUSLY for 30 seconds in my quest to find the best safety razor a guy can shave with. I have very gruff beard and 2 days worth of stubble. When I used the Schick Hydro 5, had no gushing blood, only 2 minor cuts, and the shave was pretty good. Here are some action shots:

Results were good:

Minimal casualties:

So why shave my face so fast? All in the name of Movember, who is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health…by putting mustaches on faces every November to raise awareness and donations. I got involved with Movember years before my dad past away from cancer, but their message and passage helped me heal. #Movember is addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

Keep her off the pole shirt:
I designed it myself since my main goal in life is to keep my daughter off the pole.

I’ll be doing more reviews of some of the industry’s best safety razors on the market in the upcoming months. Why safety razors? Because if I tried shaving with a disposable single blade, my face would be pure ripped off and I would bleed to death before the video even finished. If you are still shaving with a single blade, get with the times man! PSSSSS it’s 2018, you don’t need to hurt your face every day for no reason. Get The Schick Hydro 5:
17 blades & a handle for $27 dollar is an AWESOME deal.
