Re: F...Shaving

Electric always left me feeling like I hadn't shaved yet...sandpapery feel. Also dried out the skin.

Re: F...Shaving

My Dad has always shaved with an electric. I don't know how he does it, but it works for him I guess.

Re: F...Shaving

Growing a beard was one of the best decisions I've ever made (I haven't made many important life decisions in my 30 years on this planet).
I do have to shave under my chin/neck a little bit two or three times a week, but it takes me like 2 minutes so it's not bad.

Re: F...Shaving

Back around the holidays I got my wife some Clinique face crap that she likes, and as part of the purchase they gave me a free sample of their men's line stuff, which included a pre-shave face scrub. I tried it and that made a seriously noticeable difference in the comfort of the shave and the end result.

It sloughs off dead skin and flakes and oil deposits before you go to shave, so the blade goes across a smoother base of skin. I get fewer red bumps and infected ingrown spots as a result.

So I bought some. And now I use Clinique. So?? I'll still cut you off in traffic.

Re: F...Shaving

^

The key is going to be what you're using to shave with after the Clinique...

A manly tool like a double-edge blade or straight razor...or a sissified plastic cartridge "razor" advertised by effeminate young men with popped collars and bathe in Axe?

Re: F...Shaving

I'm still using the Merkur 180 with the DE blades, and it works fine for me. Of course, I'm not doing it as the video suggests, because I don't like my shave to take too long, and I'm just using a cheap gel instead of investing in a brush/bowl/cream/aftershave balm, but so far so good. I'm shaving on a once or twice weekly basis now, and I can dump a blade about once a week and it works great. I think I might invest in the brush/bowl/cream/aftershave soon as well, but I'll probably use it for special occasions instead of making it a regular occurence.

Re: F...Shaving

Once or twice a week?


Don't worry, kid...everyone matures at their own pace. Don't let the boys who already have chest hair get to you. You'll catch up in your own time.







Merkurs are GREAT razors. I sold my Slant last year when I trimmed down my shaving arsenal to my 3 favorite razors, but it was a fine piece of equipment.

I've sold about 10 razors...it's fun to restore, test drive and flip them for a profit. I decided to get rid of a lot when the baby was on the way.


Do yourself a favor and pick up some C.O. Bigelow shave cream from Bath and Body Works...best cream you can buy and they have good sales on them. It's mentholated and makes your skin feel like ice after you rinse it off. Wakes you up and will give you a better shave than the goo in a can or cheap gel. Won't take any longer to apply either.

C.O. Bigelow Premium Shave Cream

Re: F...Shaving

LOL the funny thing is, I probably have more chest hair than you. Without saying too much, let's just say I've had no problem growing body hair as opposed to facial hair. Shaving facially once or twice a week works for me because I get a decent 1/8 inch stubble going and it's usually around that point that I decide to shave.

Re: F...Shaving

Just decided to move from my signature goatee to attempting a light beard. Feels strange, but it's filling in nicely and the absence of using a razor every other day has done wonders for my skin.

I'll probably get antsy and lop it off this weekend, but we'll see. As far as electric razors go, I don't how guys do it.

Re: F...Shaving

Apparently, at 29, I just hit puberty. I used to have to shave 1-2 times a week. I'm having to shave about 3x a week now. This is terrible. The worst part? Still can't grow a beard because I have awkward bald spots.

I hear you, I've got a patch on the left side of my face that just doesn't grow hair, so it makes beard growing really awkward. Hence why I just let stubble grow in before I get rid of it.
