Regarding this post ( look above ) - does anyone know what it is called in German or English? and where to get it?
It's available as a little crayon-like thingy, in English called a styptic pencil. In German, it's available as a "Rasierstift" (according to the one I bought in Coop) but also goes under the name "Alaunstift"

handy little thing. but does it sting...

i know.. i dare you to lick it..tastes as bad as it stings !

yet a small piece in hot water for a few minutes, makes a good cleanser for your mouth, if you have mouth ulcers, they are gone in 2 days..but yuk..what a taste..

You don't consider it " un groomed " when an unshaven guy stands in front of you? and i'm not talking about a chippendale now

Nope! Not at all but then maybe I'm weird like that! Some women like a bit of rough as they say .

Talking of the Chippendales. Did see them perform once in London and was thoroughly unimpressed! Was soooooo glad not to have been in the front few rows of that performance although annoyingly they did gyrate up and down the stairs and amongst various rows in the audience, including mine! I remember seeing my mugshot on TV looking thoroughly disgusted at the Chippie who came near me virtually thrusting himself in my face, with my sister almost rolling on the floor with laughter. Dang it!

Great stuff, so if i was to apply for a job with you, meeting you with a bit of a beard ,you wouldn't hold it against me?

I always thought Swiss people liked to be clean shaven and all that?

Definitely nope to the holding it against you, so long as you look like one of those Hollywood film stars who regularly sport stubble or David Beckham, then you got the job man for real.

Dude, I ain't Swiss (not that there's anything wrong with that) but am as far removed from it as anyone can be .

Well aware of you not being Swiss, and likewize, not Swiss also
Not that i look anywhere near David Beckham( thank god !) but good to know

People always told me that Swiss people are always clean shaven, never go out with " one day beard " to work and all that,hence the question.

So..when do i start?

Dude, you start like ... er ... yesterday

A really good male Swiss friend of mine would never be seen out without shaving so you have probably been advised right on that. Come to think of it, in the office, I can't recall ever seeing ANY of my Swiss male colleagues with even one day old stubble. Brits yes, however

What's wrong with Becks!? He's soooooo cool in my view.

Never mind. Will still give you a good reference .

Yeah. Becks aint everyone's cuppa tea I know. The earrings and skirt look on him don't do it for me either but he's sure got style IMHO.

Male and female shaving is different and this thread specifically relates to men so can't see why it was an allegedly "unfriendly thread" for girlies.

No comment on the "Electric or Knife". So there!
