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.

Um. So when are y'all gonna launch that chubstr dating site? Hmm? You can't just show us all these men and then whisk them away to handsome land, leaving us to ponder who they are and where they've gone.

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
