I have a confession to make (please don’t rescind my man card!): Until very recently, I’d never shaved “properly” with a manual razor. After hearing about a special offer in a podcast, I decided to change that with a subscription to Harry’s Shaving. Continue reading “Harry’s Shaving subscription: Reviewing my first manual shave”
L’Oreal’s Men Expert Pure Power Charcoal face wash was on offer at my local supermarket this week. I decided to put the usual hyperbole on the packaging to the test and picked up a tube to see what kind of results I’d get. Continue reading “L’Oreal Men Expert Pure Power Charcoal face wash”

Hello, and welcome to Everyman Chronicle. I’m glad you could make it.
