Dove Men +Care Face Scrub

As a general “manly man” I usually don’t like to use things like face scrubs or face cleansers. I’m more likely just to jump in the shower, stick some gel on a wash-cloth and get it over with. Also I’m prone to oily skin so I’m used to having a wash a couple of times a day to keep things nice.

So I was given this Dove face scrub from their “Men +Care” range,  sceptical as always I decided to give it a fair go.  Like most people I find things that say “moisturising” usually end up with your skin in either of 2 camps,  either too dry or too oily!

So I was pleasantly surprised that over a weekend of using it my skin didn’t feel too dry. I’m not sure how much “scrub” their should be in a product like this (To be honest I was expecting something like the thick rough ‘sugar soap’ mechanics use to get oil of their hands) What I actually found was a pleasant smelling paste that did lather up well, it did feel like it was scraping the skin slightly, and my skin did feel refreshed after using it.

I have noticed one very nice thing using it, after only a couple of days I’m finding that my skin is not as oily as it was (wither that’s due to the product or just the fact I’ve changed product I’m not sure), but family members have noticed that my skin is “less shiny” these past few days.

So this has definitely got a spot in my morning shower ritual.

With the winter weather and the months of parties ahead, I’m sure me and my face, with Dove’s Man +Care help, will look great.



The Lagrange receiver

This is another short story I’m working on called

The Lagrange receiver

It’s more of a Science Factual rather than Science Fiction story. Hopefully everything in the story will have a solid footing in Scientific knowledge, (or as close to one as I can get without getting a restraining order form Prof. Brian Cox).

It starts like most of my ideas, a simple question…

When another civilisation calls? should we answer?

or more accurately

When we snoop in on another civilisation endeavours. Should we expect to be welcomed?

The 38

So here goes.
This is the first idea for a short story (heck a great TV script!!) I’m working on.
The premise is simple:

Could you commit a crime and leave your DNA at the scene on propose and still get away with it?

About my Blog

I’ve been trying to start a Blog one way or another for years, as you can tell, with little success (Mainly due to Procrastination and idea problems).

But 1,432th time’s the charm as they say…
It’s not the lack of ideas that’s my main issue, it’s the lack of skill and patience to get those ideas out of my head onto the screen.
I’m easily distracted, (insert “Squirrel” gag from “UP!” here). So this time I’m going to take it slow and easy. It will just be simple text posts to start with, and later on i’ll get into adding flashy stuff like pictures and even those new fangled hyperlinks you kids are all so hip about! (yup i really did just write that!).
But I think my posts will be split into 3 catagores:
  • McGuyver (Tips and Tricks to survive the modern world!)
  • Reviews (Reviews of any products I can get my hands on, Either sponsored or something I’ve personally bought)
  • Stories (Short stories in preparation got “NaNoWriMo”
I need to get into the mindset of a blogger. I’ve got 1 or 2 posts in the works already! A third forming in my grey mind thingy (ah Brain! that’s the word i was looking for!). At least one of those will be worth posting.
