How much grooming and fashion would come under 'trying too much' and would put a girl off?

LOL this question came up in my head the other day. I am not sure if I'm turning metro. I would never wax my eyebrows or shave my chest (it's hairy as hell too), but I want to avoid acne and BO so I try to smell nice and have smooth skin.
Up until maybe 4 months ago, I didn't take care of myself at all. I got tired of acne or oily skin so I decided to change that. I also had a severe problem with BO so I feel like I have to put more effort into my hygiene than other guys.
I now have a thorough regiment. I cleanse, and moisturize daily,exoliate 2-3 times a week, and once a week I do this clay Indian mask. I also take my time shaving, I use a barber's towel to soften the skin and use a pre-shave oil, lather up with a mug and brush and use a straight razor to avoid razor bumps. I like having aftershaves with certain scents, and shower with scented soap to match the aftershave. I also put body lotion on myself to fight stretch marks because I lost a lost of weight quickly and I want my skin to tighten up. Also started using Gold Bond: foot powder in my shoes and Body Powder on my balls to avoid sweating/smelling. My shampoo is just some Clubman Pinaud stuff, maybe the hair tonic too.
Does all this seem excessive?0
