It burns!

Everybody knows I'm pretty vain and always try to make myself look good.  I ran out of face scrub and was browsing the men's aisle for some more when I spotted this new stuff from Gillette.  It looked okay and the vial said it softens facial hair for a smoother shave.  Sounds good to me!

I was a little shocked to find that it warms the skin on contact.  Of course if I had bothered to fully read the package I would known that, but it was a surprise.  The warming sensation is immediate, but it fades almost as quickly which is kind of a bummer.

I've tried face washes before that a had a cooling sensation, so if this stuff was too warm for you, you could just put some cooling stuff on your face to counter it.  Then if it's too cool, put some of the thermal scrub on.  Or you could just skip all of that and mix the cooling face wash with the thermal scrub for the perfect temperature.
