Making the Switch

by Madison Ruggieri on May 4, 2010.

Do you remember the days when men used soap to shave? Me neither. Well, now it’s high time to cast generic drugstore shave gels into the garbage recycling bin. Using a standard shave gel to get a smooth, bloodless shave that doesn’t dry out your skin creates more contradictions than a Starburst commercial. I recently experimented with Billy Jealousy’s Hydroplane shave cream and for once, my face didn’t look like it just went through one of Jack Bauer’s “enhanced interrogation” sessions. Hydroplane offered premium protection from my 5 blade razor, allowed me to get an ultra-smooth shave, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dehydrated and dull. Clearly, new shave creams that are formulated to do more than the bare minimum are gaining attention.

By the time Bristol Palin is old enough to have a baby these shameful generic shave gels are going to start vanishing faster than Live Journals… oops.

Well what are you waiting for? Bristol didn’t! Try something new this time. No, I didn’t mean a new form of birth control. Hydroplane’s so slick you’ll actually enjoy shaving for once.
