Hello everyone, welcome to another post.
With it being Movember, you know, the month where every man decides not to shave, stating i’m raiseing money for charity. I’m sure some just use it as an excuse to make themselves look as if they’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards. I thought it was the right moment to tell you about my shaving story.
Let me just say, i’m no shaving expert, as you’ll find out as you read this.
I was a bit of a latecomer to shaving. I never really thought I had that much facial hair, but round about the begining of 2013 I noticed the hair on the right side of my face was getting longer and longer. That’s when I decided to do something about it.
For those of you who don’t know, or dont watch my videos, I have quite a few moals on my face, yes I know yuk, welcome to my world. I have two right under the end of my smile on the right side, and one under the left side of my smile, then there’s one at the top of my neck, each for some reason have hairs growing out of them.
I’ve tried many different things to get rid of these hairs. The first, plucking, jesus that hurt. The only trouble is they grow back even longer, coarser, and usually even more hairs.
The next thing I tried was hair removal cream, by this I mean the Veet stuff. Basically you spray a little in your hand, rrub it together and spread it on the area you want. The only trouble with this is even more hairs. The other reason I stopped using the cream is because I once had a little accident with it. You’re only suposed to leave it on for 10 minutes. I forgot about it and left it on for 20. This caused a major red blotchy rash all over my chin. Turns out I basically removed parts of my skin, ouch.
This is when I decided to go the more traditional route. The razer. Now being visually impaired, I was a bit hesitant, you know, blades and my eyes, but I thought I would give it a go.
Luckily I won a competition on Twitter run by L’Oreal Men Expert to win some Love To Shop vouchers. Turns out they sent me £100, fantastic. I decided to buy myself a top of the range electic shaver. I was going into Leeds to do a bit of shopping and thought I would see what they had at Boots. I was in luck and found one I liked. I finally baught a Remmington one, you can check it out here.
I would just like to thank L’Oreal Men Expert for the vouchers.
I got it home and plugged it into charge. To begin with, I wasn’t really sure how it charged, but I figured it out. It turns out the stand was it’s charger. I had to wait about 5 hours, turns out it takes a full 12 hours to fully charge. After a full charge I decided to take it out for a test drive.
When I baught the shaver, I also baught some Gillette shaving gel, not really in love with it, but it does the job. Turns out the shaver can be used either wet or dry. My first time using it, I opted for the wet option.
There I was, stood over the sink, rubbing the shaver all over my chin and my moal areas. I stopped and looked, well felt the results, and I didn’t think I had done that much of a bad job.
I had just one problem, after shaving for a couple of weeks, more hair started growing more on my face. This problem ment more shaving.
As I said at the begining, i’m no expert. This ment that, yes occasionally nick myself every sp pften, more times than I care to admit.
If you watch my videos reguarly, you’ll notice quite a few blemishes around my chin. They aren’t spots, most of them are where i’ve cut myself.
Being visually impaired. yes I mentioned it again, I don’t think I do that bad of a job. I would love to know any of your first shaving experience stories. You can get in touch by the usual means.
