For the past... well, it's been a while... I've been rocking the Old Spice "Original Scent" line of products.Unfortunately I ran into a problem yesterday/today: the mother of all rashes. I don't know…Continue
"I've heard from other guys that while Michum is pretty powerful stuff, it has a tendency to bleach your clothes in the armpit area. Because of that, I've never given it a chance. My issue with all the Old Spice stuff is that to…"
"I use dove for men body wash shampoo and deodorant, I'm pretty dead set on the brand really love it.
As for a cologne, I've picked up alot of different brands and scents over the last while it really depends on what Im doing that…"
"I use Tom's deodorant, as the harsh artificial stuff they put in products like Axe or Old Spice(really they sneak bad stuff into everything these days) also gives me rashes- I don't want to think what kind of long-term harm it could be…"
"I'd like to chime in to second this. I didn't believe that a crystal deodorant could possibly work, but I decided to give one a shot a few months ago after becoming tired of my clothes being ruined by antiperspirants.
A crystal is not an…"
"Good point! Tim, do you use deodorant or antiperspirant? Many people have trouble with antiperspirants; has to do with the drying properties of the active ingredients as opposed to the scent. If so, try powdering your pit with a little cornstarch…"
"My father was a tough Sicilian WW2 vet, and he loved Old Spice. I never knew him to use anything else. Personally, I never used any aftershave or cologne during my forced shaving days (military then a security company that only allowed…"
"You know, I've heard a lot of people having bad reactions to original Old Spice. Me personally, it gives me a headache and makes me feel lethargic all day. Anything with that scent does it- aftershave, cologne, or deodorant. I've tried…"
"I personally like Nivea's line of anti-perspirants. They're not very pungent or overly 'manly', like you're trying to compensate for something. They just smell 'clean' and don't irritate.
N.B I don't wear…"
"I'm very much the same story, down to family asking if I'm dating yet, however I also have the balancing fact that me dating right now runs contrary to my goals for the future.
I'm not worried about it. If something happens,…"
"To avoid the rashes, pain, skin damage (etc.), your best bet is to try unscented and/or natural deodorants to see how your body reacts. I used to get that pain when I was younger (at the time, I think it was Right Guard sticks that were causing it)…"
"Hmm, just gonna have to change brands then.
One thing you make me think of is that your body could be going through some changes if it's decided to act all funny with something you've used for a long time with no problems, my skin started…"
"I'd try cleaning them with saddle soap, if basic soap and water isn't doing the trick...it's very harsh though, so once properly dried, add a very generous amount of some good conditioner, then give them a good polish a day later."
"I have three hobbies, two of which are extensions of my everyday life.
1- Continuing Education. Required for a paramedic, but I tend to go above and beyond. Not many paramedics know antidotes for overdoses of chemotherapy agents. I have several…"
"I think you are just having a tough time. It´s winter and december is a very depressing month. So it might not be as black as you think. It is normal to have phases were you are less motivated.
But you also seem to be a bit unhappy with were…"
"The best thing you can do is realise that your not alone with this problem. Lack of motivation isn't something you lack, and everyone else has; motivation isn't a trait, its an act. You have to consciously decide to be motivated; to choose…"
