Stop, No! 10 Ways You're Using Your Clarisonic Totally Wrong

Would You Get Your Swerve On?

I once briefly dated an mall-emo boy who was very particular about the hair on his head — had to be dark and just so as it fell into his eyes — but who was even more particular about his body hair. As in, he couldn't stand having any. Homeboy shaved his legs and his arms, and he was almost always a bit stubbly.

It kind of weirded me out.

So, I thought of him as soon as I saw The Swerve, touted as the "first full-body groomtool." It's a razor meant to help dudes defuzz their hairy backs and chests. The ergonomic design is supposed to be easier to maneuver than a normal razor, which makes me think that it could be useful for my own leg-shaving needs. Then again, my regular razor does the job, so perhaps I'll leave the Swervin' to Mr. No-hair. Would you try this out, or would you foist it upon a man in your life?

Looks kind of like the head of a Schick Intuition. Probably could use that instead of this and maybe be cheaper.

I hate it when men shave their arms. It's creepy. But if a man needs to remove unsightly hair, why doesn't he just use hair removal cream? It's a bit more expensive but you don't need to worry about cutting any delicate parts.
