I don’t believe in kissing and telling, but I have to say that I’m not a fan of facial hair. Not on Hubby or on anyone. I’m just not a fan of facial hair, period!
My husband prefers to grow a goatee and a moustache, especially in the Winter. He tells me that being a farmer, having facial hair keeps him warm and protects him from the elements when working outdoors in the freezing cold.
Perhaps there is some truth to this, but I’m still not a fan. I have really sensitive skin and really do not like the scratchy, abrasive facial hair. Even Little One displays her displeasure when being scratched by Daddy’s goatee when he kisses her.
Ladies, is it just me or do you also prefer a clean-shaven man? Which is sexier? Smooth, soft skin or a goatee, beard, or moustache?

With signs pointing to the decline of kissing in Canada, the ever- increasing number of men sporting stubble and facial hair styles could be part of cause. Gillette asks, is stubble killing the kiss?
Gillette surveyed Canadian women and had a similar response from east to the west—women (80%) like their man with a smooth or clean shaven face. When Canadian women think of clean shaven men, a vision of a smooth, good looking and kissable gentleman comes to mind. Of course, we can’t deny that 60 per cent of women like the look of light stubble or a five o’clock shadow, describing this man as sexy and rugged above all else. While women may like the look of a sexy, rugged man with stubble, overall, 75 per cent said they prefer to kiss a guy who is smooth or clean shaven.
Not only do women claim to have long, lingering kisses most often when kissing a smooth/clean shaven man, four in ten also claim that they would kiss a clean shaven man more often. Less than 10 per cent who make the same claim about men with facial hair.
KISS & TELL: It’s official, stubble is killing the Canadian kiss! When surveyed, 72 per cent of women reveal that kissing a guy with facial hair has irritated or scraped their face. Overall, half of women claim to have used a facial cream or lotion on irritated skin, tried to cover it up with makeup (23%) and some even added an accessory to hide the irritation (5%). In addition, almost one in four women have actually avoided kissing a guy romantically because he had facial hair.
To help avoid this kissing issue, P&G wants to arm your man with the proper tools to get rid of that scratchy, abrasive facial hair.
