I’ve not always been a facial hair kind of guy, but a few years back I decided to just go for it and give stubble a try. My first attempt was to grow a mustache, and well, let’s just say that didn’t go very well. Unfortunately my facial hair doesn’t grow in very thick, at least not in the mustache area. So what ended up happening then is that my upper lip just ended up looking kind of scrubby and not very nice.
That wasn’t going to work. I needed to shave, reassess, and basically go back to the drawing board. I’d seen a lot of other guys with extended goatees, and while it wasn’t my most favorite look by any means, I decided to give it a try as well. The result was a mix of thicker, longer hair on my chin, and almost nothing around my mouth and under my nose. At that point I knew, my best bet would be to grow a simple goatee on my chin and lower face area.
I did and I haven’t looked back ever since.
What I hadn’t realized until then was just how much work it would be to keep my facial hair looking fresh and clean all the time. First of all, I would need more shaving gel and more than a simple razor. As you know, if you’re a guy sporting a full on beard, a mustache, or just a goatee like mine, the commitment is real.
My favorite grooming products now are those that make the shaving process easy and efficient. The The Perfecter: Beard Boss Stubble and Detail Kit by Remington, for example, takes all the fuss out of not being able to reach those stubborn hair follicles that just won’t come out with a regular razor. The premium T-Blade provides ultra close trimming and pinpoint precision and control for perfect stubble and crisp, clean edges. To me, you really can’t beat that. And because my facial hair doesn’t grow in all that thick or rapidly, knowing that one single charge of the Beard Boss’s lithium battery will give me 5 hours of cordless runtime, means I can go months without having to charge it again. You can find the Beard Boss at Walmart and on Walmart.com.
Nothing is worse than going to use something only to realize you have to recharge it all over again before being able to use it. Con esto, nada. One charge and you’re good for almost a year, if your stubble is anything like mine that is.
Now here’s to hoping I can grow that full beard sooner rather than later.
