A Refreshing Peppermint Shave

Last month I ran out of shaving cream on a business trip. Interestingly, I had just purchased a new can of shaving cream for the bathroom at home the previous week. The chemical laden ingredient list was still fresh on my mind. So I wasn't terribly motivated to delay the start of my day by making an emergency trip to the drug store for a product I didn't really want.

The other factor in my reluctance was that I have sensitive skin. Very sensitive skin. I routinely shave three hours before going out just to let the shaving cuts heal before I put on a dress shirt. Because blood on the collar is never that attractive. I have tried all sorts of shaving creams, soaps, lotions. I have tried straight razors, barber shaves, three, four, and now five bladed razors to find a clean, blood free shave. All to no avail. Yet I looked wooly, and needed to shave.

Why not? I'd tried just about everything else.

I remembered that I had my travel sized jar of DME™ Pineapple Coconut Oil with me. Why not? I'd tried just about everything else. The coconut oil was solid, since it was a cold day, but it quickly warmed up on my skin and became a nice slick lubricating surface. And it smelled good. Nothing like starting the day with a Piña Colada.

Since I've come home, I've switched to DME™ Peppermint Coconut Oil. Again, I like the aroma. The shaves are the best I've had in my life. After thirty years of shaving, that's saying something. I love the way my skin feels after the shave, as the coconut oil is moisturizing. Best of all, I'm not poisoning my skin with chemical concoctions. Anyone want to buy a nearly new tin of shaving cream?
