Swerve: Review and Giveaway

Swerve is a girl's best friend. Especially if said girl has to trim the hairy neck of her husband/boyfriend/significant other.

Swerve is a new grooming tool designed to let guys shave their own necks/backs/chests sans help.

To be honest, when I first opened the package, I thought, "Huh, that's it?" Then I passed it on to the DadGuy and told him to trim his own neck. A look or pure horror came across his face, "Me? I can't see back there!"

Thankfully, he did just fine. (Though I will admit to straightening out the neck line.)

So, just what is the Swerve?

The Swerve™ is a unique full body groomtool designed to give you a smooth, clean shave and the sexy look you desire. Its patent-pending, ergonomic design gives you the control and comfort you need to extend your shave to hard to reach areas including the back of your neck and upper body.

The Swerve™ contains a triple-action blade for swift cutting precision and a lubricating strip designed to help the Swerve glide smoothly along the contours of your body. Use the Swerve weekly to keep your swerve appeal. Replace it every four-six weeks or when the blade begins to dull. The Swerve comes in a unique, flexible storage tube making it a great travel companion.

And yes, you'll need to replace it. The Swerve is a disposable razor, and when it's time to get a new on, you replace the whole thing, not just the razor. How often you'll replace it comes down to one thing and one thing only. How much of a hairy beast are you? And how often are you using it?

Thankfully, The Swerve is a pretty sweet deal. You can buy one at a time, or a three pack. And if you email them, they'll let you buy an entire case.
