Product Spotlight: Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener

razorpit

Ask yourself the following questions:

(a) How often do you wet-shave your face/head/legs?

(b) How many shaves on average do you get from each razor?

If your answers are (a) 3-5 times a week and (b) around 4 to 7 times with the same blade and you are male, you fall into the average usage category. As you would expect, the lifetime of a razor blade varies according to the conditions it is subject to. If you are female and you only shave your legs/bikini line, the usage will be less frequent and blades will last longer. However if your hairs are darker and thicker, your blades will need to be changed more frequently. Either way, it would benefit everyone if there were a way to extend the life of the average shaving razor.

Product Spotlight: TENS Pain Relief Machines

tens-pain-relief

Taking drugs for pain-relief is not always a good idea, especially when the pain is a long-term chronic condition or the circumstances don't allow for it. Technology has a solution for this in the form of the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS Machine).  Although its sounds a bit like a robot from the future, a TENS Machine is actually a portable pain-relief device that can be carried around whilst you go about your daily routine.

The TENS Machine consists of a central battery-powered unit and a collection of electrodes connected via wires.  The electrodes are placed onto the skin and the machine attaches to a belt or pocket.   The device works by emitting small electrical pulses that interrupt the pain signal before it reaches the brain. The sensations felt are mild tingling pulses that are non-intrusive.
