Lampe Berger is in the Air!

I really like this slogan by Lampe Berger. “Lampe Berger is in the Air”. We’ve been selling the Lampe’s for 4 years now. They have been around for 100 years. People are still learning about them and inquiring about the many benefits of them. These little things destroy bacteria and toxins in the air. So we highly recommend them as we move in to the flu season. Burning the Lampe Berger in your bedroom, living room and bathroom will clean the air you breath! They still use this lamps for disinfecting hospitals in Europe!

Hamlet is visiting Revolucion

For the last time this 2009 trip Hamlet is visiting us and rolling some amazingly crafted cigars.  As an owner of Revolucion and cigar lover, this is one of few times that i have the opportunity to watch the construction of a fine cigar.  It is a reminder of the work, skill and patience that goes into “creating” what is known as a fine cigar.  I am grateful for having Hamlet here to express this art and I am also most grateful for his friendship.  Cheers

Swiss Army Knife of Skin Care Products for Men

I trust Swiss.

Let’s face it, they make great watches and clocks and their chocolate is the best in the world. Oh, and they’re smart. So smart, in fact, that they have come out with a men’s skin care line that lists liquid oxygen as one of the ingredients.

The TASK ESSENTIAL line offers a good deal of various products to make you feel your best — from the usual shower cleanser to the pit grease.

The SHOWER GEL scent is really nice and completely non-offending. A light citrus smell with almost a gentle sweetness to it. The scent lingers for only a short time and then leaves. I like that as I know it won’t interfere with my after shaves.

The FACE WASH is quite agreeable. Like the rest of their products, you only need to use the smallest amount. Non-foamy or overly soapy, it slickly covers the face. After rinsing, you skin feels BBS and glowing.

AGE RESCUE is their anti-age product. Again, only a small amount is needed to lightly cover your kisser. It goes on easily and without the “girly smell” sometimes associated with these products. I felt my skin absorbing it quicky. Either I noticed an improvement immediately, or I was just too tired and ready for the sack, my face looked pretty good!

Lastly, I used the EYE RESCUE for the excess luggage I get after a hard day at the office. Just a very small dab under each eye and I was amazed what was happening — it became very cooling  and I swear I could feel it regenerating instantly. The coolness continued for nearly 25 minutes as it worked its way into my puffy luggage. Can’t say what happened next as I had to crawl into bed. I think it would be just the thing for those who keep late nights out on the town or just don’t get enough sleep. I have tried several under eye creams/gels and have never been impressed and although no product gets rid of them completely, this one does the best job by far.

Got up this morning and my bags looked pretty good and I was off to the shower to try more…

I showered with the WASH OFF HAIR AND BODY WASH. I really liked this! Non-soapy and very little lather. Slick and that really nice clean smell! I only had to use half of what I would with comparable products, and it left me feeling squeaky clean and Summers Eve fresh. Ok, maybe not THAT fresh. I used it as a shampoo and although it did the trick, I don’t think I would be using it as such in less I was in a pinch, like traveling. Don’t expect it to wildly lather on your head like shampoo.

Next came the NEW SKIN FACE SCRUB.I’ll tell you right now that this scrub ain’t for sissies. It’s got what I considerer, the perfect ratio of gel-to-scrubbers and those scrubbers are pretty grainy. Larger in size than found in other face scrubs I have used, you can feel it getting down to business and deep cleaning the pores. Face glows so radiantly that you just might want to have a cigarette afterwards. Finally, a real scrub for a real man and without that acetone smell. If you have sensitive skin, keep looking.

After my shave and oral hygiene, I used the SKIN FEED O2 MOISTURIZER. Light weight and clean. I used it in place of my usual AS blams or gels. As with the rest of the products, just a bit went a long way. Didn’t leave my face greasy or sticky, but you could feel it was being protected and nourished. I ended the regiment by applying the EYE RESCUE  and was ready to take on the word!

With having such a success with Task Essentials, I am looking forward to trying their STOP BURNING AFTER SHAVE and PURE INSTANT WHITE CLAY MASK.

Although the mix of products I have been using have served me well, I feel that Task Essentials is the front runner these days in the men’s skin care arena and is viable challenger to the already crowded market.

Pricewise, it’s about the same as the rest out there, but since you use to little, it could be a good value.

Packaging is very, well, “bright” and will wake you up out of your hungover stupor in the mornings. Red and white are the colors of the Swiss flag, so I suppose it works in that respect. Big, bold and in your face kind of packaging.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel the overwelming need to buy a Swiss Army knife, now…

Jack Black

When you think of Jack Black, skincare isn’t the first thing that jumps to mind. Bulging bellies, unkempt locks, eating a plate of nachos in one bite because if they’re connected it counts as one? Sure, but grooming god? Not.

That’s why Jack Black Skin Care for Men didn’t make sense. Until I found out that he has nothing to do with it. “I’m not happy,” Jack said. “I haven’t pursued legal action, but it’s bull****.”

The companies name doesn’t appear to have been inspired by the funnyman (Jack Black Skin Care for Men was created in 2000 when Jack was just breaking out in films like “High Fidelity”) but its Jack Black Beard Lube does sound unintentionally comical.

Here’s what makes Jack Black different from other brands:

Fuss Free. Jack Black know men don’t want to hassle with an overly complicated routine. Products are simple and easy to use, yet multi-functional, so you get multiple skin benefits in a one easy step.

Man Focused. Every product is designed specifically for a guy’s needs. From a superior shave to complete body maintenance, formula’s are built from the ground up with a distinct focus on what men want from a product. Each product is designed to provide immediate, noticeable results, and an improvement in the overall quality and condition of skin.

NO FRILLS. Jack Black know men want products that look and smell masculine. Jack Black has a rich heritage, based on masculine icons like upscale scotch and cigars. So, packaging is distinctive, but always portable and user-friendly. And, most importantly, their lightweight, high quality formula’s go on easy and absorb fast.

Trustworthy. You can trust that Jack Black products are built with integrity – formula’s are fragrance-free, colorant-free, cruelty-free and dermatologist tested. Many are PureScience™ Formula’s, Paraben-free and packed with certified organic ingredients.

Lampe Berger

Have you ever tried a Lampe Berger?

Lampe Berger is a decorative fragrance lamp that destroys odour and bacteria in the air, while increasing the oxygen levels and perfuming your environment. Lampe Berger uses a catalytic burner that reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit to combust a special alcohol based liquid fuel. The burning fuel releases molecules into the air that capture and destroy odours while dispersing essential oils. These oils perfume the air and provide aroma therapy, as well as having insect repelling properties.

Revolucion carries the largest selection of Berger lamps and fragrances.

We had our customers telling us how the Lampe Berger eliminated smell from smoke, skunk, microwave fire, cooking, pets, and Chinese food from next door!  Folks with allergies also love it!
