You Must Try This Soap
Anthony Logistics for Men
By Daryn Guarino
The Citrus Glycerin Cleansing Bar by Anthony Logistics For Men (5.5oz bar for $8 from
Anthony.com) seemed to be
your average glycerin soap at first glance. I found an odd phrase on the
side of the packaging, "Live clean, mostly. Shave clean, always." Shave
clean? Surely they couldn't want me to shave with mere soap, could they?
When I shave my face with a razor, I break-out until the stubble grows back.
Shaving my face with a razor using soap, however, gives me the added benefit
of red, razor-burned skin wherever I don't break out.
A reviewer has to be
thorough and honest (stupid, stupid ethics!), so I replaced the ancient,
rusted blade on my long abandoned razor with a sharp, new one. I used warm
water, not hot, lathered up, and shaved down.
The soap was quite mild and
the citrus candy scent was neutral enough to call it unisexual. It handled
the rigors of shaving well and I finished quickly without bloodshed. The
moisturizing benefits were astounding! My skin felt startlingly soft and

I shaved from a number of different directions and angles. I even bore down

I was shaved as clean as I get and I
knew that I was doomed to a few days of pain, pimples, and general ugliness.
I had another, brief, moment of wow-my-skin-doesn't-itch-at-all after my
shower, but my mood was dragged down by my facial suicide of minutes ago.
checked about a hundred times during the day, but my face stayed clear and
blemish-free. Tomorrow then, I thought fearfully. After a visit to the
mirror the next morning, I celebrated my wonderfully clear skin by doing a
Power Ranger Happy Dance with my two-year old son (he didn't know why I was
happy, but he's always ready for a good dance and the Power Rangers!).
