    Review: Anthony Logistics Astringent After Shave

    Thursday, April 9th, 2009

    It’s not easy to review an after shave, there are hundreds of them! But most of them won’t give you the results of the Anthony Logistics Astringent After Shave. Anthony Logistics  has designed this after shave to be low-alcohol, meaning that it will not heritate you skin when applying it just after shaving, and your skin won’t burn and turn red. Low-alcohol doesn’t mean low efficiency! Indeed, the Astringent After Shave is an effective yet mild, purifying lotion to be used after shaving on an oily or problem skin. The Anthony Logistics Astringent After Shave is a definitive solution to reduce the oil that causes blackheads and blocked pores, it also soothes razor burns, eliminates impurities, tightens pores and controls shine. I personnaly find it being the best aftershave (toner) as it cures my shaving rash & ingrown hairs and it smells great!

    Anthony Logistics Astringent After Shave - Buy it for £17.75 only !

    Metallica fan shaved off personally by James Hetfield

    Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

    Following the release of the band’s ‘St Anger‘ album in 2003, Los Angeles resident Mick Cassidy, a Metallica fan, vowed in 2006 not to shave until his favourite band released another album. Cassidy subsequently became an internet star as fans followed the progression of his beard. It took Metallica another two years to release their next record, ‘Death Magnetic‘. On the album’s release day, Mick was eventually shaved off personally by Metallica’s James Hetfield!

    Kratos also needs a shave (PS3)

    Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

    I am a fan of razors, you all know that, but I’m also very interested by video games. Also, while reading my morning RSS, I’ve found this funny fake advert of Kratos, the hero of God of War on Playstation 3, having a shave! This has been done to illustrate a new deal Sony is trying to put in place to extract some more money from European wallets through a new deal inked with Target Entertainment, who will now be the consumer product licensing agent for all PlayStation software IP. So, you might see one day Kratos doing TV ads for Gillette Razors.
