Re: razor vs. electric

Both.
I use a Panasonic wet/dry in the shower for the bulk of my face.
Mach III in front of the sink for finish work.

Re: razor vs. electric

I need a both option cuz most of the week I use my electric Norelco shaver but every week & 1/2 or 2 I use my blade razor. The electric is so much faster and using it allows me to sleep another 5 extra minutes and the straight razor used too much causes really bad razor burn 4 me. anyone have a shave lotion or after shave they recommend to help w/that?

Re: razor vs. electric

All...
Razor burn is caused by two factors:friction and folicle disturbance.
Using a razor in the shower helps both of these by opening your pores like mount Vesuvius. When this happens the razor tends to lift and cut the hairs rather than pulling them out(reducing folicle disturbance) and it makes for a faster cleaner shave meaning less passes(reducing friction). I wholly recomend trying to shave in the shower if you have irritation issues.

Re: razor vs. electric

I tried switching to the electric - gotthe mackdaddy Norelco electric razor, the James Bond edition! I figured if it was good enough for 007, it's good enough for me. That mother chafed and burned like hell though - never could get used to it.

The key is to get a decent hand razor (Mach 3 or whatever) and shave in the SHOWER. Opens the pores up - I get a smooth, irritation-free shave every time.

How many damn blades can we PUT on razors nowadays? I'm waiting for the 300-blade version that a professional crew has to come and install in your bathroom. You then just walk up to it and rub your face up and down across a screen of razor blades.

Actually my Dr. said to avoid the multi-blade razors. He said 1 or two blades at most, anything more is just overkill and a marketing gimmick.

Seriously though, how many blades on a razor do you need? Seems like every year they throw an extra blade on.

Re: razor vs. electric

You ever try Bump Fighter? I have a friend who uses it because he can't use electric OR razors without getting horrible razor burn. It keeps the blades a TINY bit off the skin and gives you a closer shave than electrics.
