My playoff beard

With the National Hockey League (NHL) playoffs underway, fans from coast to coast are exercising their right to grow beards to support their favorite teams.

The tradition of the playoff beard started in the 1980s by the New York Islanders. Since then, scores of players have participated in the annual ritual.  Players stop shaving when their team enters the playoffs and don’t shave until their team is eliminated or wins the Stanley Cup. The beard is both a reminder of team unity and a way to get you thinking about the playoffs from the moment they look in the mirror in the morning.

I’ve partnered with Philips Norelco to host a “Beard-a-Thon” on Mocha Dad. Show me your beard for your chance to win a Philips Norelco PowerTouch with Aquatec Shaver (AT810).

The NEW range of Philips Norelco PowerTouch with Aquatec electric shavers provides a quick, convenient and skin-friendly shave. These shavers can be used wet with gel or foam for a refreshing shave and extra skin protection, or dry for convenience.

These shavers feature:

  • DualPrecision heads that effectively shave long hairs and short stubble simultaneously
  • Patented Super Lift and Cut system that lifts hairs and cuts comfortably close below skin level
  • Skin Protection System that uses rounded low-friction heads, which adjust to the contours of the face to limit skin irritation
  • Aquatec Wet and Dry Technology that allows you to shave wet with gel or foam for extra skin protection or dry for convenience. Can be used in the shower or in front of the sink.
  • Flexing heads that follow the contour of the face for a more precise shave

Philips Norelco is encouraging guys to toss their blades and go with a real pro when it comes to choosing the right grooming tools to keep their playoff beards in check.

Three (3) winners will be selected.
