razor vs. electric

I've been trying to convert to electric for a while now, but I just can't get a nice clean shave, but I hate the irritation from a regular razor.

So what's up electric guys, how do you do it?

Re: razor vs. electric

I got the braun activator and have used it for a long, long time. I don't remember really using anything else. Its good because you end up getting your money's worth. Now I think they have the braun 360 something. The only difference is the foil on the top so I can change that. Its good and close. Sometimes, especially during the summer, I'll just not shave for a couple weeks and it gets big so it has three modes. One wis like a clipper to take away the big stuff and the other two are for closeness. Now it does a good job every where because one mode is for areas that are curved, like mooby said- the chin. The other is for harder areas like above the lip. All and all its pretty good.

Re: razor vs. electric

Razor all the way. Used to be electric then tried the razor and was sold on the closeness. No electric is gonna beat the closeness. To counteract the irritation I now shave in the shower. The volume of hot water and steam open the pores enough to almost eliminate the irritation totally. Takes some practice to do well but if it concerns you just get a little shower mirror. I now jusr do it blind and never have an issue.

I've been a shower/blade guy since I was 18. No cream, nothing, just hot water.

Re: razor vs. electric

I got that crazy ass five blade thing in the mail a couple of months ago and I love it. When you first start to use a new blade it really glides w/o irriataion. The only problem is that the blades don't last that long and new one's are pretty pricey (no wonder they gave me a free sample, bastards). When I try to be cheap and use one of the blades for too long it starts to pull hairs out of my lower neck, which always really sucks.

I still shave the downstairs area with a huge bowie knife though, I just have to makes sure I don't drink coffee or soda before I do it.

Re: razor vs. electric

Razor is the only way to go. I get the same irritation from an electric that I do from a razor, and an electric of course isn't nearly as close. Blades give you that smoothness when your done too, you know, the kind when the hot women really want to rub your face.

I've been watching too many Gillette commercials.

Re: razor vs. electric

But I do have an electric, it's a Norelco. Know what it's great for? Shaving the back of my neck and shoulders. On those places, you don't care if it misses a few hairs here and there, you just want to clean it up a bit.

Re: razor vs. electric

You can still use a razor without the bumps if you do it right after a shower. The hot water will open the pores up so it's easier for the hair to come out. Also, make sure you don't go against the grain of the hair, that's what causes a lot of irritation. Go with the grain until you're almost done, then you can go against it to get that baby's ass smoothness. I also use that Neutrogena aftershave lotion stuff. I hardly ever get a bump doing it like that.

Re: razor vs. electric

I've been a razor guy most of my life. I've tried a few electrics now, most recently I bought a Norelco smart touch which is probably the best electric I've tried, but even that doesn't get close enough for me, especially on my neck.

Razor. I've had electrics but you always feel like sandpaper.

Re: razor vs. electric

Razor guy. Used to keep up with all the Gillette noise, but it got too expensive, so I found a disposable I like, and use that (Bic Comfort 3).

Definitely shave either in the shower, or immediately after. If you can't, be sure to wash your face with a hot damp wash cloth. And be sure to use some sort of after shave to help cut down the irritation. There are also pre-shave things you can put on your face to help cut down the irritation as well.

Re: razor vs. electric

They say electrics will not work on an oily face. If it is you have to wash your face first. But like matty said, it doesn't work on the neck very well.
