My experienceAsk any man "encouraged" to shave everyday by the traditional convention of his profession and you'll find that we envy the whiskered hipsters who've abandoned the razor. Though excuses why I didn't shave on any given day are plenty, often I just wanted to give my skin a break. Well, I may have just lost my best excuse not to shave. The shaving set from HYD For Men is everything it purports to be, and more. And after 30 plus years of dragging a razor across my face, the razor is now gliding back and forth effortlessly, leaving my skin moisturized and sans stubble. The Shave Cream has a pleasant citrus scent that is not overpowering yet still slightly invigorating.  For those of us that abandoned cologne in college, the mild scent is a plus.  Out of the tube, very little shave cream is needed to achieve coverage. The cream feels more like a post-shower moisturizer than a more traditional slick-feeling shave gel or cream.  The first time I used the shave cream I had not yet applied the razor shield so while the experience was better than average, I had yet to experience a paradigm-shifting shave. The next morning, after my razor had bathed in the Razor Shield, I had an amazing experience. It was as if I had a layer of lubricant on my face that kept the razor off my skin, yet it effortlessly snipped the stubble.  After rinsing the remnants off, my face felt soft and smooth. There were no areas of tightness nor did I experience any of the razor burn I was accustomed to before using this product. The Razor Shield also claims to increase the lifetime of your blade. I use one of the more expensive razors so I am looking forward to not having to continue raiding my 401K as often when I need new blades. Overall, the Shave Cream and Razor Shield have carved out a permanent place in my daily regime. The HYD For Men Buffer Stick is intended to exfoliate the skin, minimize the appearance of dark spots, lines and small scars, and prevent ingrown hairs. Used up to three days a week, it certainly lived up to its billing with respect to exfoliation.  How well it addresses the spots and lines on my chronically sun-kissed face remains to be seen. I used the Buffer Stick after shaving and it definitely made an impact. My skin was fresh looking, albeit a touch pink. I'm informed by others that this means its working! One caveat, if you spend as much time as I do at the beach or in the sun in general, be sure to slather on the sunscreen if you've recently used the Buffer Stick. Overall assessment: In conjunction with the Shave Cream and Razor Shield, the Buffer Stick fills out the trifecta of a new morning routine that gets me out the door with a smile on my face. Available from HYD For Men #HYDForMen 20% off your entire purchase with this special link: Use Promo Code: SAVE20 Expires 9/01/2013Press Samples from iFabbo.
