Full credit here – he went one step further and bought a safety razor from ebay. He also heeded the advice of our lovely readers and took his time learning to use short strokes instead of those wide sweeping jaw line passes you see in the Gillette commercials.
The end result was, I must say, quite smooth. And more importantly, it greatly reduced our bathroom clutter and overall shaving guilt.
While we’re on the topic of retro smooth style, I also managed to pick up this little beauty while at my parents’ house (one casual comment about hairy legs, and my Dad unearths a long lost collection of random razors from the basement – who knew?).
It’s called the Sharon Mini Shaver, and I’m going to go ahead and call it one of the most stylish little razors I have ever seen. You just hold it between your thumb and fingers and shave away.
The only inconvenience is that I don’t think it is shower-worthy, so I am stuck shaving my legs in the bathroom sink which isn’t the most convenient location. (If you know otherwise, let me know)
And finally, I wanted to give an update on the baking powder deodorant. Still going strong. In fact, Grant and I now both feel the urge to share our deodorant knowledge with everyone we meet and are constantly smelling our armpits and exclaiming at how amazingly odor-free they are. I guess you could say we’ve been converted . . . let me know if you decide to try it out.
