CAR has a new innovation out.
He said he's been working on it "a couple years" :shock:

Enjoy. . .

I do admire the speed and confidence with which he wields his razor. I wonder if there's really a blade in it.

I had never looked into methode shaving and for the first time viewing I just dont know what to say! Almost seems like he had no blade in the razor, along with pulling the cream off his face with the head of the razor with out letting the blade touch his face and those fast strokes omg, shaving is a pleasure not a fast messy race. Ill take that Polo in the backround though!

He needs a new pro-primer-wet-mix-slag with lithium carbonate in it. Lots of lithium carbonate. Preferably applied with a Shaving Rag impregnated with amylobarbital. Then a cutting balm with valproic acid and carbamazepine. Finally a spray tonic with quetiapine. Electrifying the razor so that he gets unilateral ECT wouldn't do any harm either. No 'dry breech' after a seizure or two.

I wonder how the condition will be described in the DSM-V?

This method clearly works for Charles, to judge from his healthy-looking clean shaven skin. But I wouldn't dream of rubbing down my face with a soapy washcloth after the first, and again after the second, pass. It would irritate my skin. On top of that, he shaves 20 or 30 times over the same areas of beard during a complete shave (see parts 2 and 3 of the video.) That seems an excessive number of strokes to achieve a baby's-bottom shave.

or does it clearly work for his marketing of those products?

Just when I think he can't out-lol himself, he continues to go and prove me wrong.

It sure does seem like a lot of work with that cloth before and during the shave. Maybe he's trying to achieve the same result and "feel" as one would using an actual shaving brush? :wink:

i got it, he looks like a 2 band badger to me! i like how by part three he's feeling spots that he missed! how can you miss anything after a couple of hundred passes?

Sales must be sagging for Charles to unveil a new technique for his faithful horde of shaving zombies. Fold the flannel (washcloth) one more time and rubn it against the grain...duh. :roll:

All I could wonder after watching was.."what would Gillette say about this if it were 1920 when they first got started"?..as well as the French who started the first SE razor as well"?
I wonder if he could do this with a straight razor..then again..too much wet stuff goin everywhere.. :lol:

Too much sugar for a dime...

If I wanted to "rush" my shave, that process would still not work. Seemed like it took quite a while and what a mess.

I would rather "ENJOY MY SHAVE" by slowing down and taking my time.

And what's with the "rag" thing. They invented a wonderful product years ago, it's called a "brush". Works quite well, at least for me.

My two cents worth. :D

How bout twisting the cloth and announcing this great new shape for the cloth like it's never been done before.

Actually, I think he demonstrated that something as simple as the cloth works very well. My skin wouldn't tolerate that kind of razor work, however, regardless of the lather.

The Method Shave isn't my chosen approach, but I don't resent that it works for Charles Roberts and a number of others.
