Here's How You Stop Razor Burn For Good.

Razor burn... Just saying the words make me angry! Why? Because it should never happen to me or anyone else.

5 Ways To Shave A Tough Beard

I’ve been asked to answer two questions… (1) How does someone determine if they have a tough beard? and (2) How do guys with tough beards get a more comfortable shave?
