GIFTS 4 YOU

“Yes, this razor shaves like a dream. The multi-flex flexible head glides over your legs wonderfully. I love the larger head on the Dorco Eve 6, it seems to shave more in one stroke as opposed to my husband’s razor!”

The FUSS

“The Dorco EVE 6 is designed with a bendable ‘double 3 blade’ and bendable head – this means that the head can bend and move around, contouring to your body shape. This results in a lot fewer cuts and nicks on those hard to shave places like your ankles and knee caps.”

    1. Start with a full beard to pull off this look
    2. Apply a thick layer of shaving foam to the face, trim down the moustache and shave off all neck hair
    3. Use the trimmer blade at the back of the razor to remove cheek hair, keeping most of the beard along the jawline. Next, shave an inverted triangle into the chin area
    4. Backcomb your hair, and dress with Wolverine claws and a ripped white vest (or shirtless if you’ve got the abs to pull in off!) to complete the look
  2. They’re creepy and they’re kooky,mysterious and spooky… get your moustache in check this Halloween, Gomez Addams style using the nifty trimmer – perfect for all those tricky areas!
    1. You’ll need a ‘tache for this one!
    2. Apply a thick layer of shaving foam to the face
    3. Remove all facial hair, keeping only a moustache above the upper lip
    4. Using the trimmer blade remove hair from the top of the moustache, creating a thin, long line of hair – pencil in with black liner for extra definition!
    5. Finally, slick your hair back and throw on a dark bowtie to really give you the edge

 

  1. Proving you don’t always have to be loud and proud, recreate silent comic actor Charlie Chaplin’s iconic ‘tache. Offering a true one stroke shaving solution, Dorco Pace 6 Plus glides effortlessly across your face to keep the fuzz above your upper lip
    1. A fuzzy upper lip is needed to nail this one
    2. Start by trimming down any stray beard hairs before coating the face in shaving foam
    3. Clean shave the entire face, keeping only hair above the upper lip
    4. Using the trimmer blade, shave the ends of the moustache – your moustache should look thick and short! Fill in with dark eyeshadow to create a fuller look
    5. Whack on some eyeliner, adopt a dopey expression and black bowler hat and voila!

  1. Sail the seven seas as Captain Jack Sparrow and embrace the plaited beard and jewels in abundance. Whilst you’re at it, gain full control with the non-slip rubber handle as you master the rough and ready look.
    1. The more facial hair the better in this case!
    2. Cover the mid to upper cheeks in shaving foam and remove all hair. Keep the majority of the beard across the jawline and on the chin – think thick and fuzzy!
    3. If your beard can go the mile, separate it in half and make two plaits, adding a bead on the end. If your beard can’t, stick two plait extensions onto the chin using eyelash glue – works a treat!
    4. Tie a bandana around the head, add jewellery and pull out any remaining hairs to ensure a rugged look

Do Women Find Men With Beards More Attractive?

Each and every day, women come face to face with all manner of facial hair showcased on their male counterparts. Exhibiting a variety of styles and lengths, the beard can take on many forms, from the subtle goatee to the trendy lumberjack hipster beard, from the classic refined look to something reminiscent of a wizard’s unkempt mane. While some men are happy to grow a beard that they feel best suits themselves, others do so in order to appear more attractive to women. However, although survey results show that most women find bearded men more attractive, this doesn’t necessarily mean men should let their beards go feral.

 

Do Women Find Men With Beards More Attractive?

According to a new study, men and women participants consistently rated faces with facial hair more attractive. “When shown men’s faces, men and women study participants consistently rated the faces with beards or stubble as more attractive than clean-shaven faces. But beards were most alluring when facial hair was rare, whereas clean-shaven faces gained in popularity when hairy faces were the norm,” the researchers wrote in the study, detailed April 16,2014 in the journal Biology Letters.

In the study, participants were assigned to one of three groups. The first group saw only clean-shaven faces, the second group only
fully bearded faces
, and the third group all faces.  Across all groups, the participants rated beards and stubble as more attractive than clean-shaven faces, but the preference for facial hair was greatest in the group who saw only clean-shaven men. The findings suggest that facial hair is most desirable when it is rare and why beards go in and out of fashion over the time.

 

So what type of beard should men grow in order to be more attractive to women?

The answer to the above question is not what you’d expect, because there simply is no single, perfect choice of beard that will have women swooning at your feet. Rather, the answer is: whichever beard makes the best first impression.

Everybody knows that first impressions count, and a woman’s first impression of a man’s facial hair is no exception. A clean-shaven look may look great on some men, because, let’s face it, a beard just doesn’t suit everybody. But for those men who do wear a beard well and proudly, several studies have proven that a light beard on a man appears to be the optimal choice for most women.

Survey results by chataoubtyou.com
show that most women find light stubble to be more attractive than a clean-shaven face. The result is light stubble>clean shaven>less than a beard but more than stubble > the bushier the better.

According to Female First
, another survey by Match.com found out what women really think of a moustache on a man. “73% of ladies find facial hair attractive on a potential date, however only 25% would date someone with a moustache. The findings suggest that if single men want to increase their dating pool they should ditch the larger moustache and go for designer stubble instead.”

So, show up on a first date with some noticeable and obviously well-maintained, stubble, and you’ve already scored a few points. (Hopefully, your personality

 

When is a beard too much beard?

Lengthier beards appear to be all the rage these days, as men are keen to be channeling channelling their inner Viking. While a longer beard makes a man look more mature, most women involved in the studies were a bit turned off by the more aggressive look.

How to keep that beard in perfect shape

The colder weather and the countdown to the beginning of Movember is the perfect time to start growing that beard. Of course, cultivating the perfect beard means utilising the perfect tool. That’s where razors by Dorco come into play. Combining 60 years of expertise with today’s advanced razor technology, these quality products offer users an unparalleled shaving experience, and are ideal for keeping the perfect beard well-maintained on a daily basis.

Experiment with different lengths and styles to see what type of beard suits you, and you’ll soon be on your way to giving the ladies something to talk about. (Or presenting your current girlfriend or spouse with a new masculine look to help keep the embers burning!)

5 Steps for Silky Skin

5 Steps for Silky Skin

We all love the feeling of silky soft skin, but have a hard time replicating it on a daily basis. Ingrown hair often fights a constant war on our legs, leaving them red and irritated. You might head to the spa for waxing or use an epilator, but you’re not a big fan of painful beauty routines. When you’re in the mood to give yourself the luxury shaving treatment without the hassle, follow these five steps.

 

1. Exfoliate

Exfoliation gets rid of the dead cells that hang around on your body, allowing healthy skin to show through. Your legs can stand up to a strong scrub, so break out the products you can’t use on your face. Salt and sugar scrubs give great results, but you can also use exfoliating gloves or chemical-based peels.

2. Take a Warm Shower

There’s nothing better than a steaming hot shower – except when you want silky skin. Turn the temperature down so you have a warm shower. Relax and take your time, as you want to get your pores as open as possible. Use a gentle cleanser to wash off and prepare for shaving.

 

3. Shave

You can’t shave with any old razor and expect great results. Old razors irritate your skin as you go over the same area repeatedly, trying to cut all the hair. Single blade disposables have a problem getting all the hair in a single pass, resulting in a similar problem to dull razors. Multi-blade models require fewer strokes to get your intended end result, which reduces your chances of creating an irritated surface prone to razor bumps.

4. Prevent Ingrown Hair

Ingrown hair can be painful and prevents you from getting the smooth skin that you’re dreaming about. Starting off with exfoliation and giving your pores time to open up during your shower help with this problem, but you should take a few extra steps to avoid this leg hair dilemma.

Do you currently suffer from this issue? The problem may come from your hair removal methods. Waxing takes your leg hair out at an angle, so it’s not growing straight out of the skin. When it grows sideways, you end up with irritated skin that’s uncomfortable and unsightly. Switch to shaving-only if you find yourself full of ingrown hairs post-waxing. The way your hair grows in naturally may be predisposed to ingrown hairs, so shaving lets you manage this more effectively than waxing.

Are you lucky enough to not have a single ingrown hair on your legs? Keep it that way by applying serum designed to prevent ingrown hairs from developing. You should do this before you get out of the shower, right after you shave your legs.

 

5. Moisturise

You lead a busy lifestyle, so you don’t always remember to moisturise before you leave the bathroom. However, putting lotion on when your skin is dry doesn’t have the same effect as when it goes on a damp skin. The primary benefit to doing this right away is to trap the shower’s moisture, as well as softening your skin. You do have to spend some time waiting in the bathroom while the lotion dries, so make sure to schedule a few extra minutes for this process. It’s well worth it in the long run when you head out the door with silky smooth skin.

Many women have to figure out the best way to shave through trial and error and have the ingrown hairs to prove it. Skip the painful part of this experimentation process and get the best shave of your life with this skin-friendly technique.

Best Date Night Ideas for Busy Men

When you don’t have time to plan a fancy date, that doesn’t mean it has to be any less special.

Here are six great ideas you can either throw together last minute or plan way in advance. Make your special evening fantastic, romantic and memorable.

1. Hire a Home Chef

When you are running late at work, no need to cancel on your date! Dial up a home chef to come to your place and give you both the special treatment! If you plan this in advance, you can request the chef to prepare her favourite foods for a full-course meal. If you have kids, just plan a sleepover. Send them to your friends and have a cosy night in. Some catering companies or home chefs come complete with fancy dishes and candles to set the mood.

 

2. Visit a Neighbourhood You’d Both Love to Live in

Whether you’ve been together three months or three years, there’s no harm in making fantasy plans for the future. Go for a drive to a neighbourhood where you could see yourselves living together. Have fun conversations about which types of houses you’d buy, and where. What renovations would you make to which homes? Which gardens inspire? Have fun being creative while getting inspired. If it’s an evening drive, you’ll get specially lit houses for a different effect. Plus, this requires no dressing up so it’s all less hassle.

3. Try to Get Out of An Escape Room Together

If you haven’t tried Escape Rooms yet, you’re missing out! They will test your problem-solving skills as well as teamwork! It’s an adventurous date that’s sure to be fun and exciting. Besides the friendly competition, you get to have lots of conversation and test each other to the limit –literally. Great for both first dates, long-term partners or married couples wanting to up the excitement level.

 

4. Take an Evening Course Together

Nowadays, there are all kinds of offers: DJ-spinning classes, sushi-making, painting, language learning classes… choose one skill you would both like to learn together and mark one night on your calendar to make it happen! Of course, if it’s something like a cooking lesson, then you’ll both benefit from your new skills.

 

5. Stay-In Date Night Ideas

Could be simple board games, puzzles or even something kinkier. Having a night in is a great chance to plan a date where you can both relax, sip wine on your favourite couch and enjoy each other. And, there’s no need to get dressed all fancy to go somewhere. Simple, smart grooming and wearing your favourite chilled-out clothes will do. Set up some mood music or plan a movie marathon.

Just remember: whatever type of date you plan, how much cash you spent or how expensive the evening was isn’t a gauge to go by.

The important thing is to leave the daily anxieties behind, take it easy and enjoy each other’s company. We only live once. Cheers to health, life and happiness with your loved one!
