Strange things seem to happen to we men in middle age, but much of it is not worthy of fighting back against! One of my irritations recently though has been the increasing toughness of my facial skin and the resultant lack of a close shave. I conducted some research and it was recommended I try a shaving oil pre-shave. I had never heard of shaving oil before, so began a local search. I found some in the store Sephora and put it to the test.

The good news is its works! Finally, a smooth and easy shave this morning. The only downside is having to remove the oil from my hands after applying it to my face - my hands were so oily I could not grip my razor! A quick hand rub on a hot, wet face cloth solved the problem.
Another middle aged crisis averted, and proof that I can adapt the traditional (and for me much loved) ritual of shaving with a contemporary aid without ruining the experience. Now I need to apply this contemporary/traditional approach to my wardrobe.........
