With the holiday season around the corner, we’ll all be hearing a lot about electric razors. It’s such an obvious and easy gift for men, and the technology seems to get better every year.
We recently tried out one of the new wet/dry shavers from Panasonic. This electric shaver has a ton of features, starting with the Wet/Dry option. You can Enjoy the convenience of a dry shave or you can use it with foam or gel, in or out of the shower as it’s 100% waterproof. This flexibility is great when you’re giving it as a gift.
The Panasonic features a 3-blade cutting system and 30-degree inner blades featuring Nanotech technology to cut the hair at its base. It features a fast, linear motor operating at 14,000 CPM to cut through the thickest of beards. It performed nicely for us. The multi-fit arc foil follows the contours of your face for efficient coverage and maximum comfort.
It also features a popup trimmer for grooming mustaches and sideburns and comes with a charging stand and holder. Maintenance is easy as it features unique water shutters that allow water to flow freely throughout the head for easy maintenance.
The gang at Dollar Shave Club created plenty of buzz with their first video featuring founder Michael Dubin that was titled “Our Blades Are F***ing Great.” Now they’re introducing a new product in their quest to “own the bathroom” and you can see this new and hilarious video above for the product that’s aptly referred to as Product #2.
The new product isn’t very glamorous – it basically helps you clean up your rear end. One Wipe Charlies are flushable wipes, which are apparently growing in popularity, even among men. Who knew? According to their website, “51% percent of US men 18-45 use flushable wipes. Yes, you read that right. Half of men are using wipes to get clean, 16% of them use wipes instead of toilet paper.” Mr. Dubin makes this observation: “89% of wipe users are “very/extremely satisfied” with their cleanliness after using a wipe vs. only 58% of TP-only users. This should sound logical: If you stepped barefoot in a hot pile of dog poo, would you smear it off with a dry paper towel? No, you’d take a shower. Well, this isn’t your foot, it’s your center of gravity. Men who want to live the True Clean – the One Clean – use wipes.” They were kind enough to send us some, we tried them them, and we can safely say the improvement was quite noticeable.
So eliminate those skid marks forever and give One Wipe Charlies are try.
