At the beginning of February, the folks at Panasonic USA reached out to THE ROCK FATHER to give their new Panasonic Arc 3 Wet/Dry Shaver (available now from my affiliate, Target) a spin. You could call it a bit of a "Scruffy Dude Challenge," and actually, that's exactly what we'll call it! There's one area of my chin that never gets a shave - my ZZ Top portion, if you will (for a price, I may cut it) - but the rest of my baby-like face often needs some attention. While I might go into more detail on my personal Arc 3 (sounds like something IRON MAN would use) experience in a future post, Panasonic has offered up another Arc 3 Wet/Dry Shaver (a $130 value) that one of YOU can win. But we'd like to see your #ScruffyDude...
