    Default Manscaping

    I was recently having a lunch with a girl friend and a guy friend and I mentioned to her, a new skin care product that I had tried and liked.

    In talking about skin care, I turned to my guy friend and said "you should try this product, I bet you'd like it"


    Well, he looked at me like I had said "You ought to try sex with men, I bet you'd like it"

    he was appalled at the idea of using a skin care regime


    do any of you guys ever try your wife or girlfriends skin care products on the sly?

    would you ever buy Oil of Olay for yourself?

    just wondering why a guy thinks it's so weird to use an eyecream!

    I think to a point, we care a lot about our appearance, I think it's just that we feel that using eye cream is obsessing, rather than healthy maintenance. But, it's on different levels for different guys. I'm 17 and have no shame in tweezing the unibrow, but I don't try to shape them or anything, for the reasons I said. I do not divide and conquer, just divide.

    women's skin care products aren't always the best option for a man due to the unique aspects of each gender's skin.

    there are tons of products out there for men's needs and as such, it's never really occurred to me to use a woman's products.

    I don't use a ton but I certainly have no problem using one when a need arises.

    Usually I have a good shaving cream, an after shave, a couple different colognes that I rotate, good shampoo and conditioner and a good moisturizer. That's about it. At different times my mother has gotten me a couple things for the bags under my eyes but i don't really care much about that.

    The mosturizer I use as needed, on my neck and elbows.

    I don't think there's anything inherently gay or metrosexual for a guy to practice good hygiene and prefer to not let his skin dry out and get flaky, or have dandruff or whatever. I think too much has been made of the whole Queer Eye for the Straight Guy/metro sexual thing. One thing is a complete fucking douchebag and another is a normal guy that simply uses common sense and personal pride in taking care of his personal health and appearance.

    As for "manscaping," well, first off I think that term is retarded. For some reason it has always struck me as really silly..and not in a funny or witty way. It's a very "maxim" "douchebaggy" word.

    As for whether or not I do it, I'll just say that i practice good personal hygiene. I don't think it's anyone's business, other than The Wife's, as to what I do or don't do with the hair that grows beneath my chin line.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Manscaping, mandate, all those terms do not really appeal to straight guys, me thinks.

    first, sorry about the use of the term "manscaping" in the title...just didn't want to go to the "metrosexual" term and didn't know what else to use


    but as for products being different...you guys do have the advantage that you are exfoliating every day in shaving, but I'm pretty sure that retinol is retinol is retinol ... and just like drycleaning, your products are not different,. just cheaper, cause, well, you guys are cheaper when it comes to this sort of thing.

    I'll bet no straight man outside of the entertainment industry ever gave a minutes consideration to spending $200 on a moisturizer!

    I dunno, I even balk at shaving cream - what for? Soap and water have
    been working fine for me for 25 years or so.

    That said, I do find myself pruning the graying chest garden before a night
    out sometimes. Hey, you asked for it. I'll also trim it down every few months.

    But all those other products strike me as a sham and are wrong on two
    counts. 1, that they are useless, overpriced snake oils, and 2, that most men
    like to keep it simple and can't even be bothered with the thought of thinking
    that way.

    Hell, I know smoking joints and drinking coffee is wreaking havoc on my skin,
    but I can't even be bothered to stop doing either, much less get involved in
    starting some 'regimine'. Consider yourselves lucky we brush our teeth and
    shave once a week. Whether we need to or not.

    I admit I felt remarkably prettier when I tried the Nivea aftershave lotion, I figured I was really doing something special for my face, after years of the pain associated with the ol' Aqua Velva splash. Because after all, Pete Rose taught us that "there's something about an Aqua Velva man".

    But then I stopped using the lotion, and I realized my face feels much better when I simply use cold water to tighten the pores. So in summary, using mancare product taught me that I don't need mancare product. I just hope I look as good as Victor French did post-40, or even Jack Elam. Studs, they.

    All of my personal grooming requirements are taken care of with a 12" hunting knife and a bucket of cold rainwater. A supply of fishing line is kept handy for those little slip ups.

    For those special nights out, I might, might, splash on a bit of bourbon or some petrol.

    Not too much or you will smell like a fag.

    i'm not ashamed to admitt i spend longer in the bathroom than my wife....my problem is that i have really sensetive skin and have been affected by acne since i was 12....and the only thing i have ever found that helps is taking care of my skin....that mean exfoliating, moisturising, the odd face pack, good shampoo. i have found that the products based on womes needs don't tend to work for me personaly though.
    and anything with retinol is a big no no for me, despete all the hype surrounding it, it's actually an acid that removes layers of skin (thats how it makes wrinkles look finer) its also used in some acne treatments and makes my skin red and flakey!

    These days there's dudes gettin' facials, manicured, waxed and botoxed. With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands you
    can't grip a tackle box.

    Yeah, with all of these men linein' up to get neutered it's hip now to be feminized. I don't highlight my hair, I've still
    got a pair.Yeah, honey I'm still a guy.

    Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked there's a gun in my truck. Oh thank god, I'm still a guy.
