Tend Skin: In-Growing Hair Solution review

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Tend Skin In-Growing Hair Solution 118mlI believe there’s no product like Tend Skin In-Growing Hair Solution anywhere! Tend Skin Solution is a proven and effective treatment for issues such as razor bumps and ingrown hairs (you can also read my post about Dealing with ingrown hairs). Razor bumps are created when the growing hairs exit the skin, curl over and burrow into the adjacent skin. This creates a foreign body reaction resulting in an unsightly bump. Ingrown hairs form when hairs, growing back after shaving, fail to grow out of the skin. The hairs curl over inside the follicles under the skin. The inflammation in the follicle then creates a red, sore spot on the skin.

  • Prevents ingrown hairs
  • Soothes skin from ingrown hairs
  • Protects
  • Tend Skin In-Growing Hair Solution comes in a 118ml package. At the moment, you can purchase this amazing In-Growing Hair Solution for only £11.65 here!

    Monday, May 25th, 2009

    Wilkinson Sword

    Wilkinson Sword

    Today, I like to write a post about a great razor company: Wilkinson Sword. Wilkinson Sword, founded in London in 1772, was first manufacturing swords, and then started to produce different kind of gardening tools and shaving accessories like razors and razor blades. Wilkinson Sword has also manufactured in the past guns, bayonets, and other objects such as typewriters, garden shears, scissors, and motorcycles. Wilkinson Sword has manufactured all its ranges of products in three UK sites over its history: in Chelsea and Acton next to London, Cramlington in Northumberland and Bridgend in Wales, where they made gardening tools. In 2000, an executive decision was made to close its razor plant in the UK and consolidated its growing production in Germany. (more…)

    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!

    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!
