There Is Hope!

Neutrogena MEN & I Want Change!

Together, We Will #StopJunkface!

That’s right, the name of the game is to #StopJunkface. “What the heck is ‘JunkFace’?,” you ask much as I did when I first received the email asking me to be a part of this campaign from the good folks over at Neutrogena Canada. The answer is explained very nicely in the video below:

For those of you who didn’t want to watch the video, Junkface is when a guy uses the same bar of soap, shower pouf, loofah, or washcloth for their face as they do for the rest of their body – specifically their man-parts aka their junk. When Neutrogena approached me I got both disgusted and excited by the prospect of being a part of this campaign.

First I got disgusted…because I consider myself a very hygienic person and I realized I was one of the 72% of men afflicted by Junkface. Yup, it’s true. I thought about it and realized that although I have always maintained separate, distinctive razors and towels for upper and lower body use my soap was cross contaminating my face with my junk on a daily basis. YEEEEECH!

Thankfully Neutrogena started a website dedicated to this problem and helping people like me. I have since cleared my Junkface up with the Neutrogena MEN Invigorating Face Wash which I have a coupon for you available right here (PDF) and which you have the chance of wining along with some other great stuff in the contest below.

If you head on over to StopJunkface.com you’ll see that you are not alone if you’re one of the people who until now was using the same soap for their entire body. Neutrogena MEN Canada even hooked me up with a basket of awesome which I posted to my Instagram (@TheDanLevy) and can be found here and is embedded below.

 

 

The package was honestly one of the best a brand has ever sent me for the simple reason that what I at first thought was a t-shirt with my Twitter avatar’s face on it turned out to be a pair of boxers with my face plastered all over it! It also included the tools I need to change my hygiene and end my Junkface affliction:

And I have been using them regularly since the day I received them and no longer have to worry about what a female friend or relative is kissing when they kiss me on the cheek hello.

To encourage the spread of this message and changing the face of men’s hygiene I have teamed up with Neutrogena to give away a prize pack of Neutrogena Men Canada goodies to one lucky reader! Just check out the Rafflecopter Giveaway link below and enter the contest. Just like in 2008 when President Obama was campaigning to become the President of the United States, there is still Hope and I know that together we can reach to the Change which is on the horizon. (Do you think Obama has Junkface? …I don’t think Michelle would let that go down in the White House so probably not.)

Why Aren’t Hotels Supplying Us With Toothbrushes & Toothpaste?

When you go to a hotel they give you all sorts of toiletries from shampoo & conditioner to body lotion to special soap for your body versus your face. In my hotel stay experiences I’ve seen shower caps on the offer as well as sewing kits but never have I ever seen a small tube of toothpaste and/or a toothbrush in a hotel bathroom waiting to be used. Why is this? I have a couple of theories and have done a bit of research into it.

First, the toothbrush. You’d think that it is such a personal thing that no one would ever want to use a random toothbrush but to that I have two answers:

  1. I have discussed travel options for toothbrushes before but even this isn’t the ideal especially if you travel regularly as seems to warp and mash the bristles of the toothbrush over prolonged periods of the brush being forced into the container. Read more…
