Yes, yes... I am aware of what cheap shit AXE is. I don't regularly consume their products, but this stupid commercial enticed me to buy the Twist scent bodywash as a joke. :roll2:


After washing with the stuff for a couple of days, my shins and feet are all itchy and it's driving me nuts. Anybody else have such an experience?

The thing that confuses me is I usually use Old Spice bodywash, which is similarly cheap crap, but I don't have this problem. Maybe it's the scents and dyes they use, not the detergent compounds?

EDIT: Also appreciate advice on relieving this irritation, other than discontinuing use, which has ceased as of this morning.

That sucks balls dude.

I use Old Spice bodywashes with no problems. Why do you call it cheap crap though? :lol: Are there super awesome designer bodywashes out there? :lol:

Well I dunno, all of the modern scented, dyed, sodium laureth sulfate-laden washes and shampoos should probably qualify as cheap crap. If I were a rich man I suppose I'd be looking for organic soap stuff. But I'm not, so I don't. I don't mind washing with cheap crap if it doesn't irritate my skin :lol:

Kind of sad that we're willing to pay more for fewer ingredients these days, isn't it? :lol:

I fear this is your body's way of punishing you for being a douchebag. :fawk:

Yeah....I don't know a damn think about bodywash :lol: I just know that when I stopped using bar soap my skin started to look and feel a bit better and I got pimples much less often.

I use Nivea Men body wash.

To help with the itching, take a benadryl, and put some cortisone cream on the reaction.
Product Features
Refreshes skin without drying out
Soothing care for men's dry sensitive skin
Made with soothing bamboo milk
Target customer 25-49
I can't use it, I'm not in the target customer range.

Thanks! I can't afford to fall asleep so I just used the cortisone after some moisturizer stuff.

Drew... :squint:

Leon... :squint:

My fiancee was like "If a robot follows you around and tears your clothes off, it'll be totally hot." So I bought a bottle to make her laugh.

Who's laughing now? I've got my AXE...

I'm with Leon. Dump that shit and move on. Sometimes your body just simply doesn't like some products. It happens.

Many years ago I got a nasty rash in my pits when Mom changed laundry soaps. Since I worked outdoors in construction and moved around a lot there was just no getting around it. Time to switch back Mom. :yesway:
