“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for AVEENO. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
I am not much of a shaver. Well not my face any way, my chest and back are a different story. As you try to get that image out of you mind I will carry on. You’ve seen the pictures I’m sure, me and my beard. The only trimming that happens with this beard is with clippers and big chunks come off at a time but that doesn’t mean I don’t ever shave. While I like a good face beard I am not a fan of the neck beard and keeping a smooth neck makes the manliness of the beard that much more powerful. Usually I use what ever shaving product I have in the cupboard, since I am not going through it too quickly, but when Aveeno sent me some of their Shaving Gel and After Shave lotion I gave those a try.
One of the big things I love about the Aveeno products, apart from how good my neck feels, was that they are scent free. Bearded men already have a pleasing manly musk and don’t need to gussy it up with any smelly shaving products. They tell me the stuff is infused with oatmeal and I am not sure how they do that but it make my neck feel smooth and hydrated and not irritated at all. My neck is sensitive hiding under that manly beard and out of the sun all the time and the After Shave Lotion really felt nice for a couple of days. Fewer nick and cuts and smoother feeling neck is something even beardos appreciate.
Whenever I find good shaving projects I make sure to setup the manliest man I know, my dad. So I got him some Aveeno Shaving Gel and After Shave lotion too and while “Feels OK” is the highest praise he’s ever going to give, man of few words and all, I can tell he likes it. He’s got to try and keep that 87 year old face of his as taken care of as possible. He’s only 63 but we all know that 87 is just funnier number. It’s a scientific fact.
