chris - funny, coincidentially i've just bought myself and have been using a crystal deodorant as i've been reading that all the aluminium etc. in regular ones can be absorbed through your skin and is bad for you. that cumulative build up of chemicals in your system over many years etc. you are a Dr...

Shaveblog

guys, just wondering what your general views on the shaveblog site are? it is mildly entertaining sometimes, and it has always been self-indulgent, which is perfectly all right as it is someone's personal blog. however it has recently been turning into a bit of a rant platform for the author against...

The everlasting tub of Trumpers...
