As any man I've also been experimenting with my facial hair from being fully bearded to wet and dry shaving. Never grew a goatie, though. I've ended up using a cordless electric shaver 3000 series from Philips with Norelco heads and pop-up trimmer for dry shaving only. I don't need any bells and whistles. I've been using the current one for 4 years now and would replace it with the latest basic device of the same kind when this one breaks down. What makes dry shaving a lot easier, though, is that I blow dry my hair after the morning shower which also makes the stubbles perfect for the shave.
I didn't like having to concentrate early in the morning while still being half asleep which razor shaving would force me to do. With my electric shaver I can wander around daydreaming and shaving without risking any cuts. That's what I like in the morning.
I have used the same Norelco triple head razor for near 40 years and just keep replacing carbon brushes when needed. I recently bought 4 pair online in fact, and the razor keeps chugging on. Try that with any Chinese junk.
I try to remember to shave with my Remington at least once a week. Sometimes I forget
That's pretty funny. Every once in a while I'll grow a goatee or maybe a mustache, but my hair is so curly that I get ingrown whiskers, and the hairs poke at the corners of my mouth. I try to trim it back, but then I end up looking like Hitler, so I shave it off.
Regarding electric razors: I had one when I was 18 or 19 but never liked them. Now I'm retired I'll not shave but every 10-14 days, so I have an electric trimmer I use to cut it back so I can get a razor on it.
I try a new electric razor about every four years. Have never found one that is as good as a plastic, multi-blade razor. I have a thick, fast growing beard. These days, I shave my neck and cheeks. That's it.
No, I never found one that gave a close shave. I use the old fashioned double edge safety razor,a brush and cup of soap.
I never tried the Razor/Brush/Soap option. I've always used Electric on my mild, slow-growing whiskers. I always shave on Sunday Mornings, sometimes going 2 Sundays without a shave.
My electric razor I bought at a garage sale in 1982. It came on the market in 1980. I have
Bought three new heads for it over the years. Two years ago I bought a new electric
Shaver. It was the same brand as my old shaver but I didn’t much like it so I gave it to my
Son. I like the electric shavers. I have owned a Brawn and Norelco shavers, one Remington
given me as a gift. Personally speaking I haven't found one I really like.
Growing up I could never shave with thee double edged gillette type razor. I cut myself all
to pieces. The best razor I think I ever shaved with was a shick injector razor and I used one
until they quit making them and I dropped mine and broke it. Anyway as you age shaving
becomes harder. Wrickles and loose skin, I suppose.
I've been shaving since my early 20's, (60 years), but never used a blade razor.
Even in the Army, I used a battery-powered electric shaver.
I'm thinking of buying a safety razor, shaving cream, brush, and other items and give the blade a try.
I have white whiskers and only shave once a week since retiring. (Except for social events.)
Do you have any suggestions or recommendations on shaving items?
After thinking about it for a couple days, I now realize how stupid it would be to begin slopping around with Shaving Cream, a Brush, and a Razor after 60 years of successful shaving with an Electric shaver!
Let's see it!
My beard is too course for an electric. I use a twin blade and soap and change the blade often. I keep my beard trimmed with scissors and only have to shave my throat every three days or so. I mostly keep my beard out of laziness.
Your facial skin tends to acclimate to whatever shaving device you use on it, so those accustomed to a blade shave tend to find their first shaves with an electric unsatisfying. Electric shavers require maintenance cleaning after every use to perform their best, at times just blowing stubble out, and less frequently more extensive head disassembly and cleaning of component parts. Occasional oil and lubricant application can also improve efficiency. Electric razor cutters should be replaced occasionally, once a year if you shave daily and go by manufacturer guidelines. This can be surprisingly expensive, but buy brand name rather than cheaper imported parts or your shave quality will suffer accordingly...
