Product Review: eShave Hair Styler

eshave

In the past, we’ve reviewed eShave products and always came away impressed. The Orange Sandalwood Collection for shaving was hailed as one of the best shaving products ever by Men’s Health magazine in 2011. And eShave After Shave Soother was named the best post-shave lotion by Men’s Health in 2012, so who were we to argue?

After all the awards, it became apparent: Men’s Health was either trying to sleep with eShave, or eShave products are really that good. We decided it was the latter based on personal experience, but we also wouldn’t be surprised if eShave was a complete monster in the sack to boot.

Previously, eShave focused solely on producing luxury shaving products and accessories, but now, eShave wants to take over your entire head! eShave Hair Styler is a part of the “New Generation” of eShave products that actively addresses all of a man’s grooming needs. And frankly, just the thought makes our hair follicles stand on end.

Hair Styler from eShave provides the structure and control of a strong gel with the pliability of the wax. The new styling paste transforms the hair by adding weightless body and texture, definition and flexible hold, made with a naturally derived sugar-based emulsifier that enhances hairs moisture and hydrating Beeswax that softens the hair and adds volume.

Hair Styler is labeled as a “bodified styling paste.” It was the first paste I have ever applied that used a pump to disperse the product, and I really liked it, because as a regular user of styling paste, I find myself using more than I even need, because typically you need just a dab or two to get the desired effect.

When I first had the product in my hand, it had more moisture than I am used to from a paste. So, I judged it on appearance, just like I did the first time I saw Color Me Badd in concert. But just like with Color Me Badd, I was way off and was only screwing myself by judging it in the first place.

The fact that the paste had more moisture actually made it easier to apply. Usually with a paste, you have to commit that dab to a particular area and that’s it. But the eShave product was especially nimble and supple. It held my hair in place (as I would find over the next several hours), but it had similar traits to a gel in terms of feel while applying it.

Also, I really liked the smell of the product. “Orange Mint” was the bomb, and it just made everything feel fresh, like Biz Markie’s cover of “Bennie And The Jets” from the Beastie Boys album The Sounds Of Science. Lube up your hair, crack your window to let that breeze in and crank The Biz — you’ll see “what I mean, Verne.

eShave Hair Styler retails at just $17 per bottle and can be purchased on the eShave website.

Bullz-Eye interviews Buffalo Bills Utility Player Brad Smith

There hasn’t been an NFL player as versatile as Brad Smith since “Slash,” former Pittsburgh Steeler and 11-year NFL veteran Kordell Stewart. Like Stewart, Smith does it all, and even contributes more via special teams.

During his eight-year career, Smith has scored touchdowns via passing, rushing, receiving, on kick returns and a blocked punt. Plus, he is a beast on special teams, recording 60 special teams tackles in 75 games with the New York Jets.

Recently, I spoke with him about his first season in Buffalo, his preferred position, and his recent stint as an intern/backstage interviewer at Men’s Health magazine.

Bullz-Eye: How did the internship at Men’s Health come about?

Brad Smith: It was cool. Eddie my publicist hooked me up with the fashion and style department. I got to meet the fashion editor, get to know him, what he does and kind of how the whole staff works.

BE: Do you have any interest in fashion beyond football?

Brad Smith: I do have an appreciation for fashion, like most guys I prefer to look nice and dress debonair. However, I wanted to go behind the scenes understand the true essence behind fashion, the clothes, the designers, the concepts, the shoes and everything that encompasses it to what is seen during fashion week. Most importantly, I wanted to see how designers and companies put the shows together, how different media companies help shape the image of certain companies to what we see on stage for that brief period of time.

BE: Did you get any tips for your own personal wardrobe?

Brad Smith: Yeah man. Just watching and listening to all the people that eat, sleep and drink fashion and drink style, you pick up some great knowledge to take home. You got some people who are extreme and willing to take huge fashion risks because some people would think that their wearing crazy stuff. But on another extreme there are those who are fashion savvy pushing the boundaries and starting trends. Me personally, I prefer to be right in the middle.

BE: Since you’ve been in the league, we’ve seen an evolution where a QB who can run, like a Russell Wilson type, has become really valuable. Why do you think that’s happened now and what started the shift since you got into the league?

Brad Smith: I think there’s always been this type of player in the league, it’s not new- you’ve always had guys like Fran Tarkenton, Steve Young, Randall Cunningham and other guys like that who have had a lot of success. Players like that are hard to find and I think that’s a big part of it where colleges are going to the zone read- that’s not all that these guys can do. You can be multi-dimensional and people start saying, “hey they have to defend this, and then this.” Then, their running back gets more yards in the hole because they’re worried about this.  It’s all about scheme, man.
