The hairs never get stuck on the blade because it's not wet so you don't have to worry about cleaning. Also if you try to make a blade last too long, ouch, it's like yanking your hairs out. I just grit my teeth and bare it. I like the slim twin best because you can get under your nose really easy.
Why dont you use gel?

No, just use a new blade and pray.

Some areas weren't meant to be shaven.

Depends on how much attention you want in said areas. Chicks dig smooth. Just saying.

It's a waste of time and you get a closer shave dry.

When you face is dry, the pores remain more closed and tighter and you can get a closer shave. But that's not why I started shaving dry. I actually went to work one day and did not have time to shave at home so I just grabbed a razor and took it with me and figure I would shave in the bathroom at work with some soap. The soap was out and the sink was not working. I couldn't look like a bum so I shaved dry. Thankfully I shaved the day before and the razor was new. I thought it would hurt or burn really bad but I was very surprised at how little it burned. No cuts or anything. I liked how fast I shaved (didn't want anybody to come in and see me shaving so I scraped in 30 seconds) so I did it the next day and then have kept doing it. I no longer buy shaving cream or gel. Try it once. Make sure you get a good shave the day before, then use a new razor (slim twin) and use short strokes and go with the grain and be tough the first time. You might even want to slap yourself in the face a few times first, sorta get you in the mood for it.

I also have shaved dry a time or two out of necessity. But every time it irritates my skin horribly. I don't see how you do it every day, but more power to you if it works for you.

I use a new razor every 2 shaves. It has to be very sharp or it does snag and pull the hairs and hurts like a beotch. Obviously some areas is a little more sensitive then others, I could dry shave my cheeks and chin upwards, downwards, sideways with no problem. I almost feel nothing at all. The upper lip and neck area do get a little sensitive and thus I go with the grain in those areas. Slap on a little aftershave gel and all is good.

GREAT THREAD!


I like my Mach 3 pretty well (although the battery is silly). But you MUST:

RINSE THE BLADES FULLY EVERY 2nd or 3rd STROKE!!

Ever since I started that, I get 3 weeks out of each blade.


I think the bigger-biggest culprit in sub-par standard shaving processes is the crappy gel creams Edge and Gillette sell ... but this new stuff is AWESOME! Three varieties depending on your skin. TRY THESE!!

Geeez ..... Oral-B, Duracell, Braun and Gillette are the same company?

http://www.theessentials.com/jump.js...Type=HOME_PAGE


They must have some powerful sub-liminal product synergy in their marketing, because all 4 of those brands get some heavy business and brand loyalty from me. Toaster, coffee-maker, razors electric and regular, toothbrushes (both electric and analog) and batteries in everything I own, even in the keyboard and mouse I'm using now ...


And I thought Oil company mergers were outta control ....

Bingo.

I tried the orange label one today for the first time and really liked it. I hate the gels and I always had to hunt down on the dusty bottom shelves for my favorite, Joe Namath Noxema. (Take it off, take it all off )

I'm telling you guys, the beaver-hair brush and the mug with a glycerine based soap is the wa to go.

I started shaving in the shower about three months ago. I bought a shower mirror thats anti fog (yeah right). But i take a bar of soap and rub all over my face and head, then apply shave gel. Works perfect, gets closer than ever.

Once you come to realize and accept that this stuff doesn't lather, and you only need a thin coat rubbed in, then you'll realize. Its better than anything I've ever used - gel, foam, lotion, soap, powder, even cup & brush.

Moving from gel to this stuff ^^^ was like moving from Sensor to Mach 3.

And Big Guy, you're right - I always loved menthol, but I don't think you can get it in any gel anymore .... just the old school foam.

I would love to get a straight razor and give that a go, but I know you can slice the hell out of yourself, but it will still give you the best shave. I go simple w/ disposable razors and use them a max of 2 times. Having a razor that bends when you shave really doesn't help.

Aveeno Shaving Cream


Bic simple disposable razor




As for shaving downtown, buy a beard trimmer with a smaller trimming surface and you're good to go.

Here's a great video series put out by a fellow on You Tube. The series really breaks down the art of classic shaving and it has taught me a lot. So, yes, count me in as one who's going 'Back to the Future!'

Actually, 2 series:

1. for people that are new to wet shaving (coming from electric shaving). I found it informative even though I was not new to wet shaving: http://youtube.com/watch?v=xjhIy9rgW...elated&search=

2. for people that are interested in single blade shaving or "classic shaving": http://youtube.com/watch?v=4F5u28Jfn...elated&search=

Both series are done with a pretty funny 1950's monotone. Enjoy.

I started shaving in the shower, bought a shower mirror.

Also started using soap along with gel, so much closer and clean.

Thanks for this killer thread. I'm looking forward to trying a straight edged razor when I get back.

Overseas I prefer the Mach three without the ultra stupid face vibrator. It's a close shave and the blades last forever.
