A very long shave: Men spend 45 days of their lives shaving – study finds

For many men around the world shaving is their biggest daily chore (not Shaving Shack customers) and a new survey released this week has revealed that the average British man will spend a whopping 45 days of his life shaving.

This equates to a total of 65,520 minutes and 1,092 hours. The Bluebeards Revenge survey of 1,504 males, aged between 15 and 78, found that men are now taking an average of 5 mins for each shave, with the vast majority (73%) shaving on average 4 times a week.

Even though 91% of men surveyed said they prefer to be clean-shaven, a staggering 74% say shaving is their biggest daily chore.

To help men shave less, British grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge has today launched a new brushless shaving solution (priced at £9.99 on The Shaving Shack) that contains the miracle ingredient Decelerine – which is scientifically proven to actually slow down the growth of hair as well as reduce the density of hair growth.

Over a 60-day period, tests have shown that Decelerine can reduce the growth of hair by up to 40%, meaning a man can get on with what he does best – manliness – without sporting a 5 o’clock shadow by lunchtime.

Nick Gibbens, spokesperson for The Bluebeards Revenge, said: “Let’s face it, the majority of men find shaving a chore. That’s why we have produced a shaving product that actually helps a man shave less. We estimate that by using our new product on a regular basis a man can save himself up to 18 days of shaving.

“It’s also great at combatting razor rash and fighting those dastardly ingrowing hairs – so perfect for the problem shaver who has suffered for eternity due to his masculine beard growth.”

Nearly 65% of men said they preferred to be clean shaven because their partners preferred it, 15% said a smooth face made them feel younger and 10% said they had to be clean shaven for work.

According to the survey, 38% of men now shave or wax their chest hair on a monthly basis, while 28% shave or wax their legs every month.

The survey also shows that 81% of men shave their face at the sink, and 18% shave in the bath/shower.

On average, a man removes over 27 feet of facial hair in his lifetime through shaving.
