I’ve been writing enough about depressing lung disease stuff, it’s time to switch gears a bit. For the past couple months I’ve been trying out Dollar Shave Club’s newest product – Dr Carver’s Magnamimous Post Shave. I’m sometimes asked why I like the Dollar Shave Club so much when I have a full beard; I shave my head on a regular basis, not so much my face. Along with it comes dry skin all winter and the need for daily sunscreen the rest of the year to keep the skin cancer away.
Moisturizing your scalp can be difficult because many standard moisturizers have the potential to clog your pores and trust me dude, you do not want ingrown hairs and acne on your chrome dome. I usually buy non comedogenic moisturizer which is generally for your face. The stuff is a bit more expensive, but it works. I had been wishing Dollar Shave Club had something I could just add to my order, similar to their Dr Carver’s Shave Butter. Lo and behold, a month or so after my pining I received notification of their new item for sale.
The post shave comes in a 3.4 oz bottle and can be added to any order for $9. As usual, shipping and handling is included. The moisturizer is a semi-thick, white, paste that is easily absorbed into your skin and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. I haven’t done any scientific experiments, but I feel like it pairs really well with the shave butter.
At first I was a little concerned about the price and bottle size, but it’s going to last me a very long time with the amount I use on a daily basis. At the moment I’m only on my 2nd bottle of shave butter with the first one lasting me about six months. As usual, I am more than satisfied with the Dollar Shave Club and whole-heartedly endorse their shaving products…and if you’re interested in using my referral link I can get a little kickback on my next order.
