LiDL Food Market First Impressions

I was picking up my prescriptions a few months back when I noticed something strange happening, why is the Best Market closing? Then after a few weeks, it was the topic of conversation. It seems like it was only yesterday when they cut the ribbon to the Best Market it’s been open for 5 or so years and now it's gone. Well as it turns out the german based Lidl purchased 27 Best Markets including all 24 on Long Island.

The transformation started soon after the doors closed and didn't stop for months. Slowly we could see progress and then something came in the mail. We received a postcard of sorts explaining what was coming a (new food market) who they were (Lidl) and when to expect the opening December 18, 2019. The grand opening would be an event with gift cards for the first 200 customers, reusable bags, sweepstakes, Free photos with Santa and live music featuring Billy Joel’s greatest hits seems like they did some homework about Long Island.

Your Best Face Unboxing / Shave

Company: Your Best Face
Product: Shaving Cream Skin Care

Sometimes things just get by me but I have no excuse this time. It's all on me and my fault. You see Darrel from Your Best Face sent me an amazing box full of his products with a note explaining to just use them to review them whatever I want and if possible let people know about them. This was a while ago and I just kept putting off the review and now I feel like such a shit. I hope Darrel can forgive me I feel so bad not getting to this sooner because this stuff is amazing!

Trader Joe's Mango Cream Shave

Company: Trader Joe’s
Product: Honey Mango Cream Shave 

Last week during the Thanksgiving frenzy I found myself at Trader Joes’s. If you don’t have one near you then I’ll explain. Trader Joe's is a neighborhood grocery store with amazing food and drink from around the globe and they also bring in the local fair as well. Great quality at great prices (sometimes) you just have to be careful because you can lose the main reason why you are there and start buying so much more than you need. 

While looking for something during my visit I came across a very small section for soaps for men and women and right in front of me was the Trader Joe’s Honey Mango Moisturizing Cream Shave for $6.00. Wow, I thought but wait why is it called cream shave and not shave cream? This is the way they explain it. “This Cream was specifically formulated for us without the use of harsh ingredients and is tested for gentleness. We designed it for sensitive skin—it’s cream-based, non-foaming, free of parabens, and enriched with aloe vera & vitamin E. Many high-end brands advertise their moisturizing shave creams as being gentle and non-irritating. And then they charge you handsomely for the favor. That’s not very gentle. We’ll happily provide the gentle, non-irritating shave cream, along with a gentle price. Trader Joe’s Honey Mango Moisturizing Cream Shave is an excellent everyday skincare product for both men and women, with a refreshing honey mango scent.

Automation Nation

Things sure have changed over the years. Once we had to bring all our groceries to a cashier now we use our phone or supplied device to scan our purchases and checkout without any intervention. They even have a store from Amazon you put things in your bag or backpack and you just walk out no cashier or checkout at all in the next 5 min you get an email with the things you purchased. Well, now my local carwash has been updated in the same way.

I noticed something was going on when I saw the closed for renovation signs and man did they renovate. They took everything out and gutted the inside of the carwash and replaced with the most modern advances I’ve ever seen. During this time as I went by, they started to redo the outside with a whole new look. You can say that this was a complete makeover top to bottom.

Soapy BathMan - Refreshing Mint

Company: Soapy BathMan
Product: Refreshing Mint

There comes a time in every wet shavers life when you must go through his or her den and start weeding out things you just don’t use. I’ve seen a few extreme cases years ago when people are showing their dens and it looks like a wet shaving warehouse. I see no value in hoarding things like this because sooner or later most of this stuff is going to go bad and before that happens its best to let someone else who may not be able to afford a vast collection own something they would normally not be able to afford.

As I was going through the den this year I came across a few things that I just couldn’t part with. I’ve had these soaps since the beginning and still have plenty left in each tub which means I’m not using them as much as I should but with all the Youtube reviews I do I don’t seem to have the ability to use what I want anymore. The soaps I’m talking about are Soapy Bathman these soaps for me are very special. The one I’ll be using today is refreshing mint which they don’t even make anymore which is a shame because it happens to be one of my all-time favorites.
