This is the kind of shave I prefer, but not the kind I always have time for

I don’t do a lot of shaving, but when I do, I usually break out the electric shaver. It’s quick, and it gets the job done. Sure, an electric shave isn’t the closest or most comfortable method of pruning your face (for that, I go to the professionals), but sometimes convenience outweighs comfort. The biggest problem I run into when I shave this way is that it tends to dry out my cheeks – leaving them not looking so great. Somebody needs to make a serum you can put on your face before you break out the electric razor.

It turns out, someone already has.

Kyoku Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer

Kyoku Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer

Kyoku, the men’s skincare and grooming company created their Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer for exactly this reason. According to Kyoku, over 95% of men who shave with an electric razor do it dry. Most of us probably didn’t realize there was another way. How does it work, you ask? Here it is, straight from the source:

Kyoku Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer was specially developed for electric razors and beard trimmers to create the optimum surface for a smoother, more comfortable glide. It lubricates and raises each whisker so you get the closest possible shave, while simultaneously disinfecting your skin to prevent razor bumps and breakouts.

You apply this stuff, allow it a few minutes to dry, and then shave as you normally would. The Optimizer contains coated microparticles that raise your facial hair, making it easier to cut. Like many of the products you’d use for a wet shave, Kyoku Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer reduces redness, irritation, and dryness. Pick up a bottle of the stuff from their website for $9.00.

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out Nordstrom.com or Macys.com? Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.

anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!
