Product Review: Schick Hydro 5 Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Holiday Gift Pack

schick-hydro-assassins-creed

If you were an assassin, who’s the first person you would kill? If you said notable pirates in 1715, Schick and “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” have your back.

For its latest product offering, Schick has teamed up with “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” to produce the stealthiest men’s shaving gift pack ever created. It’s so stealthy that if you acquire it while playing Secret Santa, you will have no idea who gave it to you.

The Schick Hydro 5 Holiday Gift Pack contains the following components: one Schick Hydro 5 Razor, one Schick Hydro canister of Sensitive Shave Gel, one Schick Hydro 5 Travel Cap, three Schick Hydro 5 Razor Cartridges, and one code for unlockable content in “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”

There are several little things that make this gift pack completely #Badass. And as we learned from British rock band Bush, it’s the little things that kill, or in this case, get you that close shave you’ve been pining for, yearning for, and in some cases, burning for.

Little Thing #1 – The Travel Cap 

Razor storage is tricky, just like life as a man. Throwing a blade into your favorite shaving bag between uses doesn’t seem optimal, especially if you’re traveling. Or, if you’re living an on-the-go lifestyle and need a quick “Spartan Shave” (a shave sans shaving cream) because you spent the night in a strange place and have a big presentation first thing in the morning with a huge financial investment firm and no time to shave properly. Schick cocked backed its head and said, “Ah, hell nah, son” when it created the Travel Cap that comes standard in the Assassin’s Creed Holiday Gift Pack.

Little Thing# 2 – Hydrating Gel Reservoir

We hear all the time about lubricating strips that function similarly to a post-shave balm to eliminate razor burn or irritation. But how frequently do they live up to the hype? To quote Ice Cube on “When Will They Shoot?,” ”Don’t believe the hype was said in ’88 by the great Chuck D/now they tryin’ tah f*** me.” The hydrating gel from Schick was so abundant that mid-shave I realized I wouldn’t need any post-shave balm. And I didn’t. The end.

Little Thing #3 – FlipTrimmer

Think of the FlipTrimmer as the Optimus Prime component of the new Schick Hydro 5. Or, if you prefer an “Assassin’s Creed” reference, it’s similar to the way mild-mannered bartender Desmond Miles covers his true identity as the latest offspring in a long lineage of assassins who rely on their Animus to kill foes swiftly and efficiently.

The reservoir tip flips back the way Optimus’ head flipped forward when he transformed from semi-truck to the Autobots alpha male to battle the evil Decepticons, which is similar to the way Desmond Miles uses the Animus to access hitherto inaccessible assassin skills. The FlipTrimmer transforms to a straight edge that allows you to precisely trim troublesome areas like sideburns and nostrils with ease.  

Little Thing #4 – Coupons

As I’ve aged, I’ve come to understand why the crux of an elderly person’s life is coupon clipping; it shaves you money. The Schick Hydro 5 Holiday Gift Pack contains $12 in coupons for various grooming items. I love you grandma. And, it also contains one code for unlockable content in “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”

The Schick Hydro 5 Assassin’s Creed Gift pack is available ONLY at Target for just $9.99. Follow this link to order your gift pack.

Product Review: Titan Post Battle Products

Titan-Post-Battle-Products

MRSA – what the hell is that? MRSA is the bacteria that causes Staph infections and is a lot easier to say than its given name of “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.” It may sound like a character off of “Sesame Street,” but it is no joke. Staph infections can mutate into a flesh eating “Necrotizing fasciitis” which can devour human flesh, and sometimes, entire NFL franchises, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

One of many problems the Buccaneers have faced during a brutal 2013 season is an outbreak of MRSA, which has sidelined a total of three players, one as recent as the end of last month.

Some Bucs (and potentially former quarterback Josh Feeeman) fans would argue that head coach Greg Schiano is a form of bacteria that can’t be stopped. But a quick dose of Titan Protective Cleansers would go a long way.

MRSA is a bacteria that is resistant to most antibiotics but can be prevented by simply maintaining good hygiene, and that’s where Titan’s Post Battle products have done all the work for you.

Titan’s bacteria fighting repertoire is two-pronged. First, it cleans your body with a Hair & Body Wash containing a proprietary blend that fights bacteria and fungus on your body. Then, a different blend of antibacterial agents is employed in Titan’s Equipment Spray that will make that dingy Olympic bench press in your basement clean enough to eat off of.

The Hair & Body Wash from Titan is simple and straightforward in its application and ingredients, just like UFC spokesman Dennis “The Menace” Bermudez.

The primary ingredient is a combination of quats, which are specially formulated and active against a wide variety of microorganisms. Quats are commonly used in water dilution and create a highly effective sanitizing solution.

The remaining ingredients are an organic blend of coconut oil, olive oil and tea tree oil. You don’t have to be a scientist to deduce the effect; whatever “clean” is to you is what the body wash from Titan feels like. The hair and body wash have an odorless mix that will leave you feeling clean and refreshed. There is no residue that you can feel on your body after use.

Bermudez is known for his aggressive wrestling style that transitions to some of the best “ground and pound” in MMA. The Hair & Body Wash from Titan is old school and aggressive; it straight up gets the job done and leaves you feeling reinvigorated. While high on effectiveness, it’s low on frills and costs ($7.99 a bottle).

Even if you just have basic workout equipment in your basement, it needs to be cleaned. In the same manner that the Hair & Body Wash protects your flesh from MRSA, Titan’s Equipment Spray is antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibacterial.

To defend yourself against harmful microorganisms, bacteria and fungus, check out the full line of cleaners from Titan at www.toughestbodywash.com.

The all-natural formula will help shield you from potentially dangerous environments and women. Follow Titan on their Facebook page and Twitter.

  

Product Review: 800Razors.com

800RAZORS.COM LIVE BURN FREE

As I stood in Arrowhead Stadium — section 125, row 33 — rocking the #83 jersey of Raiders legend Ted Hendricks, the last thing on my mind was the shave I enjoyed that morning courtesy of a razor from 800razors.com.

There I was, getting my sexuality questioned by endless Chiefs fans, in front of endless Chiefs fans in an assault befitting of Kansas City’s league leading defense. But one thing that wasn’t getting questioned was the closeness of the shave delivered via the five-blade men’s razor from 800razors.com.

Paul-Eide-Raiders-Chiefs

Just like the Raiders, 800razors.com is anti-establishment. If the razor game were the AFC West, 800razors.com would be gunning for opposing pretty boy quarterbacks in Denver and San Diego. Sorry KC, outside of Joe Montana, you’ve never had one. From the company’s site:

“Gillette — the monopoly-like gorilla of the razor industry — burns people with their outrageous prices, while the internet razor guys with the funny video burn people by importing crappy razors from Asia and screwing Americans out of jobs. 800razors.com ensures people get the best razor for the best shave at the best price or it will provide a full refund via its Burn-Free Guarantee — no skin burn, wallet burn, or American job-loss burn.”

The concept is simple. You go to 800razors.com and select the razor of your choice (three blades or five) and the number of cartridges you want. You can place a one-time order, or sign up for a new delivery every two, three or four months.

Every new customer gets a free handle. And it isn’t some plastic, POS handle from God knows where; it’s made of metal, like Motorhead. It’s solid, like the one your dad would use.

And the insane amount of rubber grip on each one could well be from an abandoned tire. A tire that had to grow up rough, hard and on the streets, not knowing where its next meal would come from. A tire that probably grew up like this one:

Not only are the razors from 800razors.com cheap, but they are high quality and delivered directly to that double-wide you call “home,” Chiefs fan.

On that day in Kansas City, Chiefs fans had a lot to say, but I made it through, untouched and unscathed. Probably because of the reputation Raiders fans have earned for being armed with knives. Like this guy:

I wasn’t packing a blade, but if I were, it would’ve been a blade from 800razors.com.

When you look good, you feel good, and what feels better than a crisp black Raiders jersey, capped off with a clean close shave? As the kids say, “Hater gonna hate.”

Now, I have two favorite teams; whoever is playing the Chiefs and the team at 800razors.com.

  

Bullz-Eye tackles Tough Mudder Lake Tahoe Degree DO:MORE Style!

Degree Men DO-MORE CORPS

There is no feeling on earth like sliding into the $125 robe in your room at the Ritz Carlton after spending six hours on the most difficult obstacle course in the world. Wait a minute, did someone say “Carlton”?  I thought they did.

The+Robe

This robe is the kind of robe Carlton would’ve rocked when he was on “Silver Spoons” with Ricky Schroeder. God, how I yearned to ride on that sweet in-house train, even just to go get the mail. Imagine me and the robe and the train. We’d run a train on the train; me, Carlton, the robe, Ricky… good times.

Sure, I thought about stealing the robe. Who wouldn’t? But the minute I stepped foot off the premises, the magic would’ve been gone, like when a young Moonlight Graham steps over the foul line in “Field of Dreams” to be irrevocable transformed into Doc, the kindly doctor who removes a piece of hot dog from Kevin Costner’s daughter’s airway to save her life.

Anyway, I left the robe, and about a pound of ball skin, on the mountain that day, and lived to tell the tale.

Keeping it REAL klassy on the mountain...

Keeping it REAL klassy on the mountain…

But you know what I didn’t leave on the mountain that day, friends? Sweat, or a stench of any kind. That’s because Degree had my back, not unlike the way Chuck Norris had Jonathan Brandis’ back in the movie “Sidekicks.”

Degree allows you to DO: MORE with three levels of protection.
