And you thought instructions were safe from marketing!



  • On the shave gel my wife just got:

    "Wet area to be shaved. Dispense onto fingers, or directly onto area to be shaved. Gently rub over skin to produce a [b]rich, luxurious lather[/b]. Shave. Rinse off skin after shaving."

    I tried it, and the lather wasn't really "luxurious" ... maybe I'm not doing it right?



  • The real WTF is...erm...

     

    Ok, well maybe the problem with what they said was to "Gently rub over skin...", surely you'd want to rub it over the hairy area?!

    The real WTF us that you have to use acid or something equally nice, how else could you rinse of your own skin. That's gonna sting!



  • That can is part of a mislabeled charge. The correct text would be: "Wet area to be shaved. Dispense onto fingers, or directly onto area to be shaved. Gently rub over skin to produce a rich, luxurious lather. [b]If lather is not rich and luxurious, immediately rinse off with plenty of cold water and drive to nearest hospital.[/b] Shave. Rinse off skin after shaving."

    For best results, use with our Icelandic Geyser shaving water.

    What surrounds and supports hair?

    Hair gel. Duh.

    showerdrain?



  • "Wet area to be shaved. Dispense onto fingers, or directly onto area to be shaved. Gently rub over skin to produce a rich, luxurious lather. Shave. Rinse off skin after shaving."

    That's annoyingly redundant. It's already mentioned after the shave step, why the extra explanation?

    Nothing is safe from marketing. Absolutely nothing.
