Week One

So here we are 1/3 of the way through Movember, time for a quick update on my progress.

Thankfully donations have started to come through, which is what this is all about, but there is still time to pitch in here. The purpose is to help raise awareness for men's health by donning a manly moustache (I say manly but mine doesn't quite fit the bill just yet)


My moustache is coming in a bit clearer now, however I do still look like a teenage boy who has decided he want's to emulate his Dad and doesn't quite have the follicle density to pull it off, but thankfully the moustache has started conversations and increased awareness for men's health.

Weapon Of Choice

For my movember challenge I have been using the Braun Series 5  shaver and I am pleasantly surprised. For years I have simply used a traditional razor and shaving foam combination after previous electric shavers not quite getting close enough. The 5030 is the first electric shaver that has really impressed me with it's quality and closeness.

The Series 5-5030 is the perfect razor for movember as it has a very close shave thanks to the contouring head, and even succeeds where others fail in getting the awkward areas (for me it's just the neckline just under the jaw that usually caused trouble)

Next week

Three weeks left in the campaign so hopefully we can raise more money and awareness.

This week I will be changing to the Philips Series 5000 razor to see how that fares.
