Saw this in Wal-Mart today. If I read it right NO SHAVING NEEDED. Razor less. That's just wrong. [Image: 41d9ff2f8d1427adfb1ebb384acc3189.jpg]

When I worked in a drug store, the men's section (shaving, deodorant, etc.), had some old-timey-looking product described as a beard powder that was sold as a shaving alternative. It was sort of a depilatory powder, I guess. I think it was the same brand actually. As much as I didn't care for shaving at the time, I recall thinking that there was no way I'd ever put something on my face that would make the hair fall out.

This must be the updated, "high tech" version. There's still no way I'd put it on my face.

Magic brand is essentially a ethnic product. Its  a depilatory  that's always been used by men in the African American community because of the problem we have  with razor bumps . Razor bumps is seen as so much of an affliction many forgo shaving altogether.

I heard this stuff sucks. Not sure if true or not, as I heard it leads to severe pain from burning, can anyone confirm?

If it's strong enough to make your hair fall out, it's strong enough to damage your skin. I rather wax my face, as unappealing as that sounds...

I'll stick with my razors, I think. Much more fun  Tongue

An African-American guy in my college dorm used a depilatory powder in lieu of shaving. I can still remember the sulfurous smell after he used it.
I think the way it worked was some kind of chemical reaction.

I misspoke a bit.  It doesn't make the hair fall out, it chemically burns it off.  People seem to like this product, and it has been around for a while, so I assume it's safe and works well.

I guess scraping at your face with a blade is kind of damaging, but I personally feel better about using a razor than a chemical that melts hair.  I've got the same problem with ingrowns on my neck due to the texture of the hair.  DE shaving has helped a lot, so I'll stick with it and deal with the few ingrowns I still get.
