Proraso Pre-Post Green Tea and Aloe

I saw it @ Jean Coutu today, but not in the regular shaving products section. It's part of a X-mas gift pack (a round red box, "sensitive"); I didn't buy the pack because I already have the White soap and a shaving brush. I'm sure it will be on the shelves soon, but you can buy the bundle @ Jean Cou...

Re: I went hiking in southern France

This week I went hiking with friends in one of the few places in southern France where you can still get lost and flee society. First we went to a place where nature takes back. It may not be obvious, but in some photographs the trees literally grow on rocks. Then we went to a very, very small vill...

I haven't noticed any difference in scrubbing frequency from one vs the other, but I haven't used body wash recently enough to give you a direct comparison.

Aaron, the most gentle and scentless aftershaves I've found are the ones put out by Nivea. Where you are using items so heavy in benzoyl peroxide (which dries your skin), I'd use the Nivea balm. You can apply it a few times if needed, and it seems to have no effect on my acne. +1 I know someone who...
