    Default Most Prefered Shaving Method

    Ok...


    ...I was shaving just now ( after 10 days or so :P ) and in combination with the fact that I am bored I decided to make this post

    Ok what do you use to shave, is it :

    Razor ( Disposable or not...)
    Shaving Machine (The thing that goes Bzzzzz....)
    Blade (The old fashioned choice...if you dont mind missing a nose or an ear )
    You dont shave ( Too young, no facial hair)


    To the ladies: I am sorry but this is a facial hair only topic, no legs... :)

    A machine for ordinary days, a razor when I really want to look good.

    A razor, something about having a machine do it bugs me....

    Been shaving a few years BTW if that makes any difference at all.

    just kidding. Electric, for convenience, most days. Gillette Mach3 razor for good-grooming occasions.

    Wax.

    Oh wait...you meant face right? I agree with Kukrikhan. I like the speed of my old electric, but sometimes it is hard to get everything (under the back of the jaw for example).

    And I was kidding about wax. Ick...shaving my legs. Thank God I'm not a chick.

    Can you explain the difference between a razor, a blade and a razor blade? I take by a blade you mean a straight edge razor like the barbers use unless your speaking of a knife. Getting a shve by the barber with a straight razor cannot be beat. Nothing else even comes close(pun intented)

    I use a razor exclusively these days. I used to use an electric shaver for normal days and a razor when I was going out on a romantic excursion etc.

    Then again, some dates like the way a bit of stubble can be used to ... well ... PG13 and all, so never mind ... hehe.

    I used electric exclusively for years but I`m done with that. Using only razor now and it`s much better.

    I use a razor when I do shave, but I do try to limit my shaving as I get horrible shaving burns and I quite like looking in the mirror at myself when I have a beard - it fascinates me, tis great.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I have a beard, but I also shave my cheeks and moustache with an electric razor. Usually, though, I need to use a beard trimmer first, since I prefer not to shave often - if I don't, the razor will catch the hair and rip it out of my face.

    Electric for most occasions.

    But a razor does give a better shave than an electric. And for some odd reason a razor fels refreshing.
