Compare, contrast, discuss. I believe it to be accurate...at least for guys. Don't know about you ladies.

I believe this video link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qehxjub5lyo) is Safe For Work. No "Naughty Bits" are shown. If not SFW, I will edit this post to state that it is not.

I've placed this in the Women Only sub-forum because I know the men will never see it.

I have more bath products than that! They just skimmed the surface.

I moved this weekend and I thought I had the bathroom all unpacked until I found 4 more boxes of bathroom stuff. I have no idea where it is all going to go! I have now put a ban on buying shower gel, shampoo & conditioner, body scrub, and lotion. I think I could open a small store.

Unfortunately, the vdeo does not answer the question: Why? To me, the funniest part was the mention of the bazillion bath products that ladies use. My wife has trimmed back significantly. But, still, sometimes I'll look at a bottle of something containing a vegetable or fruit additive and wonder: Do I wash with it or drink it?

Note: DallasDiverGirl has fessed-up to having a million products. Foo2? DisneyMom? Other ladies? What's in YOUR bathroom? (please feel free to not list...well, you know...*those* products).

Well, there's soap scum cleaner, and mildew cleaner, and a toilet brush, bowl cleaner, and toilet paper, and some towels, and well, let's see...




OH! you meant that other stuff, didn'tcha? A bunch - there's a bunch. And we use it every day.

I'm a guy an I will admit that I use a bathsponge/loufa. Those things just plain rock. Get yourself some AXE bath gel, put a little bit on the loufa, lather up, and you're good for the entire shower. :smiley20:

I even use one at work (the fire station). One guy started really teasing me about using one after he saw it last year. So I bought like 6 of them, in pink, yellow and lavender. I hung one one the outside of his locker so everyone could see while he was on a four day break. Put another in his regulator mask bag, in his bunk pants and his bunk coat pockets. He was finding them for about a month. :smiley36: Besides, the poor guy has six girls, I'm sure THEY could use them even if he wouldn't.

For your information mister...Fooman2 is the squeegie natzi! We have a glass shower door and we don't want funk on it. Once it's on it, it's virtually impossible to get it off. I learned from my neighbor's mistake, they bought a new door cause they couldn't get the funk off. A sqeegie is much cheaper and...we have a funk free shower.:smiley2:

If you put some Lime-Away on a scrub sponge, it will take ALL that residue and build up away in seconds. I like to give my shower doors (clear glass) a good scrubbing (about once a month) right before I shower, then use the shower head to wash the glass off. And then your glass looks good as new!

Olay Body wash plus creme ribbons, with almond oil
Bikini zone shave gel
Skintimate skin therapy moisturizing shave gel
Pink Gillette Venus razor
Olive oil replenishing pack deep penetrating conditioner
White loofah
Olay Daily facial scrub
Purple Bubble bath
2 foot brushes
Village naturals white tea & jasmine body soak, with epsom salts

There's also some Paul Mitchell tea tree shampoo, and a bar of Irish Spring, but those aren't mine!

Those are just the essentials, the rest of it is in a basket next to the tub, and stuffed into the cabinets.

Those would probably be equal in my book.

and let's not forget that I do have the redundancy down since I do have a fully stocked travel kit with travel sizes of everything listed above.

I have 34 dives left before I can solo. I am perfecting my training in the shower.

Well that video said it all.

Let's see what's in our shower.

Amplify shampoo and Conditioner
White loufa
3 in 1 face wash
Baby shampoo
Soap
Avon body wash
Johnson and Johnson body wash
2 razors' one for me and one for him
Men's shaving cream
My shaving cream
Foot scrub and brush

I think that will sum it all up for the shower. Now the rest of the bathroom, there's way too much stuff there. I could use everything in there and not run out of stuff for at least a few months I would think.

No, I know a few people that do brush in the shower. I have tried it but it's not something that I would do again. But you are right, a lot of men do brush in the shower.

I've seen people do it movies, but never saw the point in real life. If I'm in a hurry, I'm washing the whole time I'm in the shower, and the second I'm done washing and rinsing, I'm out. Brushing your teeth while still under the jets doesn't save you any time there.

And if I'm not in a hurry, I'd rather luxuriate in the hot water and not have one more thing to do on the to-do list in the shower.

while in mexico I had to shower in the sand rinse showers because for some reason the hotels won't let you use there shower after you check out. I was at the beach for the whole day before my bus left at night. can't sit in a bus for 4 hours being dirty

I'll own up to the loufa. Wife got me one for Christmas two years ago, and we bought a bulk pack of Irish Springs shower gel. Gotta admit, when I'm 20 minutes late trying to shower before work, they work wonders over a bar and rag! :smiley20:

As to you ladies and gents with the shave gel, have you tried the old school shaving soap with a badger brush? I purchased a Merkur Vision 2000 because I was tired of paying for Gillette blades that cost more than the razor. Went ahead and got a brush and soap to go with it. Closest shave I have ever gotten, and I don't get any ingrowns from it. She loves how close it gets too. Of course, I've since regressed back further and gotten a Dovo Shavette, a straight razor with training wheels (it uses the same double edge safety blades as the Merkur) which shaves just as close as the Merkur, but allows my luddite side to be humored too.

At least with these two razors, the blades are CHEAP(!) when the wife decides to steal my razor for her use.

Exactly, my gf Carriersanders has more types of shower goo than any person could possibly need. Whenever I shower over their I just pick on and use it for my hair, pits, and any other bits that I feel I need to clean. I only have two things in my shower, a bar of soap, and shampoo. However I choose these very carefully, I go to the store, open and smell each bottle. Read about the ingredients keeping note of which ones sound like they were created in a chemistry lab and which ones come straight from the rain forest. I then buy the cheapest one they have. Their is something wrong with the members of the other sex.

So that we don't take over the thread, I created a new one for this subject over in Man Laws. http://forum.scubatoys.com/man-laws/10367-wetshaving.html#post143476

I have found that the Dovo Shavette is quite easy to master. When I bought it the barber at the shop mentioned that it has a bit of slop to the blade and if you can master it, you're good on most straight razors (Darth Vader's razor excepted). I found it actually easier to use than most disposables and I've only really nicked myself twice with it. Plus it's relaxing to lather up and take a good 20 minutes to shave. Of course, with the Merkur five swipes and I'm done (bearing in mind I have a 'stache and goatee).

Shower Stuff? The one down at the beach works well enough. I got out of the water about 9:00pm last night and there is this big outdoor fauset thing that sprays water on your head about halfway between the sand and the parking lot. It washes all the salt off. I do that about twice a week. What more does a guy need?
