5661 Shower gel
I need to find a shower gel that gives me the squeaky clean feeling that soap bars do. It's annoying, but I have tested all these shower gels you find at the supermarket, and they all leave some oily film on my body. While people say that it is good, and "it's moisturising," I don't really care, I just want a cheap shower gel that will dry out my skin and make me feel squeaky clean.

Is that too much to ask?

Help me lads. Please.

I will test the one in the picture tomorrow.

OP, I've been thinking about this over the past few days, and I think the correct answer to your question is that you've misunderstood the problem.

The "oily film" that you feel with a shower gel is not necessarily the result of any oils or moisturisers in the gel.
Ordinary soap (sodium tallowate/sodium stearate etc.), is very very bad at dealing with water hardness. Soap draws the calcium out of the water and forms soap scum. That "squeaky clean" or dry feeling you have after using soap is the film of soap scum left behind on your skin.

Modern shower gels have chealating agents added (commonly some variety of EDTA), this keeps the hardness dissolved in water, which leaves your skin feeling slick after it's cleaned. Even in the "sensitive" gels such as the Sanex which don't have a chelating agent in, the main sufactant (SLS) is much less affected by water hardness than a traditional soap, so it still gives more of an oily feeling than soap.

Try this experiment: Buy a pack of borax substitute. Dissolve a few teaspoons of it in a bowl of water, and then wring your hands in it. You should notice that the water feels weirdly slippery. It's not making your skin oily, it's because it's stopping any of the minerals in the water from sticking to your skin.

You are awesome. I tried your weird experiment and it was great. Never thought sticking my hand in slippery water would be so therapeutic.

I also went and checked the water hardness of the area I live in, and it is really bad. All in all, I guess you are right Chemistlad. I went back from using soaps to my cheap shower gels, since the slippery feel isn't me just being dirty.

>OK, but if you can only find deep social interaction from wearing tattoos that other "likeminded" people deem interesting then you need to work on your own personality and leave the house more often.

You're extrapolating a whole lot from a whole lot ofnothing there. I said they lead to conversations, not that those are the sole kind of conversation I have. And I clearly leave the house loads, or how else would I get invited to all these hedonistic parties all the youths are at? Dear me, you need to work on your mental gymnastics a bit there. 2/10 SEE ME.

Also, I know right, what markets are even open nowadays that haven't run off with everyone's coins or are even slightly trustworthy or coded securely? I've actually gone back to street connections for ketamine, but the quality is hardly consistent so it's lead to me turning down bags from time to time for lack of better sources.

On a serious note, the back of the ear or lobe would be "invisible when naked" only when you're viewed from the front, so I suggest to you my stealthiest tattoo locations, which are (in order of stealth) insides of the toes or insides of the fingers (the sides facing towards your little finger > the sides facing your thumbs, due to the slight angling of the digits as they extend from the palm, especially when viewed from the front.)

I have a very small tattoo in precisely this location on my hand and no one, to date, has ever noticed it unless I have pointed out to them that it's there. I should probably get it touched up though, sadly there's no good padding in the dermis of the hands so ink tends to fade fast and takes more skill to tattoo there in the first place.

I need to buy new shows.

I last bought a pair of shoes when I was 18 so that makes my current lot around 5 years old bar my work boots that I find myself wearing most days now.

I used to favour skating nikes but I've grown to see them as a bit manchildish, my stepbrothers all wear brogues but they're cunts so I don't want to appear to be immitating them. I work with them sometimes and I see them most weeks.

I really have no clue what I like shoe-wise anymore, could you show me what you wear and what decent 'middle of the road' shoes are nowadays?

My feet smell. I guess I need to stop wearing the same pair of socks for a whole week.

Anyway, I've had a pair of Nike Air Force 1s for a year, and I don't think I like them. I wore my older trainers today. They were a pair of those Adidas skater type trainers. Very comfy, light-weight and discreet. The AF1s are heavy and it feels like they suffocate my feet.

Maybe you lads could recommend something discreet, comfy and light.

I hate shopping. All those choices, and the thought of regretting what I buy means I will become frozen and indecisive. A little anxious too. So I usually buy online, but shoes are a cunt to buy online since an Adidas size 8 aren't the same as Nike size 8. Absolute bollocks.

For a casual shoe, I'd personally always go for the type of vaguely trainer-styled shoes that are sufficiently distanced from actual trainers that you'd never do any actual sport in them and probably wouldn't be barred entry to a club for wearing them. Pic related for example, they're similar to what I wear.

Alright /poof/s. I have a lot of clothes I like but I rarely utilise everything, so I'm looking for ideas on how to combine basics in nice ways. Once I put together a few solid outfits I intend to give the rest away.

Preferably pictures, not adventurous fashion, just some inspiration on how to match up colours/materials and pull off decent combinations would be lovely. It's surprisingly hard to find, as a lot of 'menswear'-themed sites on the internet are too twee or over-the-top for every day. Professional photos tend toward advertising particular clothing outlets, and conventional 'style' magazines are up their own arses with long articles and artsy photography.

No tips at all, you're just going to have to go outside and find one.

A little old woman that owns an alterations shop isn't going to bend you over, but might make a mess of something more complicated, whereas a minor job at a tailors will cost far more than it would in an alterations shop. It's a trade-off between how well you want the job doing and how much you want to pay for it, really.

What's the job?

I know that poll we did said we were mostly teenage student trannies or something, but I as wondering if any of you lads walked with a stick?

I have a bog standard one from the NHS, but if I could get one that worked just as well and was a little more stylish that would be the ideal for me. I've had a look about and it's difficult to find one which would suit someone in his late 20s. They are, not surprisingly, mostly aimed at old people and polished oak probably wouldn't go with my Adidas Super Colours.

Any tips? Recommendations for sites, etc? There is a website called Cold Steel which sells plain black ones made of polypropylene which I'm leaning towards, but I don't know how naff that would look in a few years. I'm looking to spend about £50, so I'm hoping for it to last a while and I'll be using it every day potentially, and possibly for a bit of walking further afield on camping holidays, etc.

Possibly the only serious reply: yes, shorter sides will lengthen your face, and there's quite a few different parts/styles you could try with a longer top. Don't be self conscious about your hairline. It's low and right for your (presumably young) age.

A poor example, maybe, but you have a similar hair colour and facial structure to someone like David Beckham. A cut like his might suit you pretty well.

How do celebrities manage to have perfect skin?

I know it sounds like a question you would read in a women's magazine but I'm curious as to what tips you lads would have. My skin is by no means bad and I probably put more care into it than is normal for a heterosexual male but it could be better and today the appearance of a painful zit left me wondering if there existed a solution to those horrible red spots you get occasionally or just general days where your skin looks like shit. Seriously, tell me about your skincare and what things you have picked up over the years.

So far my routine revolves around using Bulldog face-wash and Nivea moisturiser (which I highly recommend) for my dry skin along with ensuring I use plenty of conditioner in my beard bum-fluff to keep the hair soft on my face.

I'm careful to eat reasonably balanced meals and have fruit (apples, bananas, raisins in my muesli) plus orange juice so I don't get scurvy. I drink copious amounts of tea if that counts for hydration but I must confess that chocolate is a problem for me where I will happily snaffle a whole share bag of the stuff if its in the house so I'm wondering if you guys can offer any suggestions for something I can treat myself with that won't turn me into the elephant man (I've tried compromising with dark chocolate but its like having to eat vegetarian food at a barbecue).

Other lifestyle problems involve my smoking as well as the dry air of an office and lack of sunlight caused by my schedule of working nights. I'm not sure I can immediately solve those but maybe there is something out there to soften the impact they have.

I'd love you for it. But you understand it is an incredibly niche product that you wear once a year if you are lucky right? I own a navy blue tuxedo with black trimming, with complementing waist coat and cravat, there is a finite number of events I can wear that to a year (weddings, black tie events where I don't give a shit about being a bit too flamboyant, and the odd special event) but for the most part it is just something pretty in my wardrobe, and that suit would be even more niche. You have to ask yourself the question, when the time comes that you have the chance to wear that suit, would you? or would you lose your bottle because you are afraid of looking like a cock? If the cock element is overpowering, it isn't for you.

I need some underwear. It turns out that it's harder than I anticipated.

I got a pack of Next boxers, working out at £4 each, but it turns out there's a major design flaw in that my knob, which is overwhelmingly average, keeps escaping through the air fold bit in the middle, like a phallic Harry Houdini. All I want is a decent pair of undercrackers at a reasonable price, I didn't realise I was asking for much.

Good quality underwear feels great, but I have had supposedly good quality underwear (pringle & bench) which even after mostly washing at lower temperatures, they haven't shrunk as such but have lost a lot of stretch and become less comfortable very quickly.

Linen boxers are also lovely, but due to the loose fit they're not really a good match for jeans or close-fitting trousers as they tend to bunch up.

In theory, I completely agree with you, in practice I'll wear anything because no one ever sees it. I think those obnoxious logos go hand-in-hand with the trend of jeans getting lower and lower.

I assume that when they pull the flap of skin over, they also bring with it the blood vessels which are supplying it, and if I remember correctly male-pattern baldness is driven by the fact that the forehead and top of head get too little blood to flush out the chemicals which kill follicles.
