BEARD TREATMENT FOR CPAP

BEARD TREATMENT FOR CPAP
Just saw an advertisement and video for minimizing leakage for guys with beards. Does anyone have any experience with this CPAP shampoo and conditioner product or the wax sealant?

My beard treatment for CPAP is a vintage Gillette Fat Boy paired with some ultra-sharp Japanese Feather double-edge blades.

I looked at it early on.  Ended up with Dreamwear nasal pillows instead.

If I recall they called those safety razors. Nothing safe about them.

Not true ... they were safer than the traditional straight edge.

See the little dial on the Fat Boy?

Turn it to 1 and you have a pretty safe razor. Turn it to 9 loaded with something like a Feather blade and one better have a steady hand and a smooth breath.

Lol ... I have a full beard all fall during WI hunting season and doesn’t effect my mask or therapy. Rest of the year I shave.
