Re: F...Shaving

Thanks, I might start out with a beginner kit and razor. Any suggestions for facial hair trimming kit?

read my mind, I prefer the unscented stuff, unless it's something really light

The VDH Soap hardly has any scent.

I've turned to stronger-scented soaps since then, the Col. Conk line.

My advice is to go with it. Just put up with the itching for a little while. After about three weeks or a month it will stop itching and never itch again.

Same here. Anytime I grow a beard I have to keep my neck clean, I get really bad irritation there after about 4 days of not shaving.

Re: F...Shaving

Who here doesn't shave on the reg? I was looking at the 180 online, and I'm probably gonna go with that. As far as blades go, is there anyone here who shaves every 1-5 days like me? I don't shave every day because I don't need to, I usually just shave before an upcoming important event, and by that time I've got a little stubble going, which I don't mind.

As far as soaps and aftershaves go, I've always been as basic as it comes. A can of plain Barbasol, and no aftershave is good for me. I've thought about learning to shave old-timer style though, but I still need to learn how to do that. I'll probably look up a video or tutorial online.

Re: F...Shaving

I shave on Sundays and Wednesdays. I work from home a lot and even when I'm in the office they're not sticklers for that sort of thing. I like to have a little stubble going on. By Sunday night though I'm definitely pretty grubby lol.

Re: F...Shaving

Wow. I feel horrible if I skip a day of shaving, which I sometimes do on the weekends.

I keep a goatee but the neck and cheeks get shaved.

Re: F...Shaving

I have a fairly thick bread and I shave every day or at least 6 days a week. I just use a disposable with regular old shaving cream and then some Aqua Velva at the end. No razor burns or ingrown hairs. I can't imagine all these expensive shaving equipment would make any difference for me.

Disposable? You have no idea what you're missing!


I love the AV though...have a bottle of that in my rotation.
