For me, I don't find being Gillette's brandwhore that bad. They consistently bring new products to the market that work well for me. Their track record is one of consistent quality, and while I hear good things about other men's hygiene products, I just can't find it in me to stray. Sorry, Dial for Men--your stuff is good, but now that Gillette is producing hair care and body wash, I don't really need you anymore. Now, according to their website they've got a soothing after-shave balm and gel I need to try....

If The Joker ever gets hold of the Gillette manufacturing facility, I'm screwed. I count no fewer than seven of their products in my bathroom: Gillette Fusion razor (Power), Gillette Fusion HydraGel (Ultra-Sensitive), Gillette Oil-Control Face Wash + Body Wash, Gillette Gentle Clean Shampoo + Body Wash, Gillette Dry Skin Hydrator + Body Wash, Gillette Hydrating Conditioner and Gillette Clear Gel (Wild Rain). I should point out that I bought the Dry Skin Hydrator + Body Wash because I have almost finished off using the Oil-Control Face Wash + Body Wash and wanted to try each of these new body washes. I have an oily face, but the rest of my skin tends to dry out; I have since begun using the oil control stuff on my face and the hydrating one for the rest of me. Once I kill off the Shampoo + Body Wash, I will likely move on to one of their shampoos proper; there are several, including one to make your hair still look thick and full at the end of a long day and one to combat dandruff. I'm thinning out on top, but I often have flakes; which to choose?
