Reverence: Baxter Aftershave


Baxter Aftershave is one of the most important cremes I have in my arsenal, aside from the testosterone rub, the alcohol swabs I use before injecting my EPO, and Butt Butter or whatever my chamois creme is called. At $15 a pop, it’s not particularly cheap, but the addition of moisturizers and antiseptic keep irritation at a minimum.

Not only does it have a pleasant smell and refreshing feeling, it opens the pores after a good, close shave to help moisturize and revitalize, leaving  your skin clean and smooth with no bumps or rash.  Just the other day, a neighbor remarked that my shave was magnificently smooth and close.  I couldn’t have done it without Baxter.

Oh, and before you start thinking I’m some kind of sissy, know this: I never use this shit on my face.  No sir, the good stuff is for the legs only.

  1. I shave by scraping a brick down my legs until all the hair is gone or I can’t see any hair for the blood. Rather than use some fancy smelly ointment to sooth the shave I just get my wolf to bite me in the face to take my mind off it. Once I’m done I ride 500km to my work as a lumberjack.

    And to think I was going to comment on the manly smell and the restorative properties of tea tree oil.

  3. I think today’s stage and the reactions to it show a lot about how different racing is compared to the past.  Everyone is shocked that a GC contender would put in such a risky move instead of a largely more defensive riding into the mountains.  The climbs seem to be the only place anything happens, because you can’t really follow numbers but have to think and pace much differently.  All the other teams were saying things along the lines of “We weren’t expecting it.”  Well jeez, something unexpected in a race?  Better just pull out, already planned the whole Tour and that just messes it up.  Apparently this was a spur of the moment decision by Saxo, without having the DS feed them their parts.  Combined with Contador’s solo last year in the Vuelta it shows a really complacent mindset within the peloton.  “How could this succeed? Just let it go.”  Seems like tactics have taken a backseat to numbers in many respects.

  4. I have a question regarding the shaving of the guns. Should this rule not include a note stating that this applies only if you actually have guns to shave? As interest in cycling increases, a lot of people dress up in full gear even though it does not make them look deliberately casual, cool or anything like it. Shaving a set of guns in worse condition than those used in the first world war should not necessarily be mandatory.

  5. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is some thing that not sufficient people today are speaking intelligently about. I am extremely happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
