What shaving products do you use?
How often do you shave?
How many times do you use your razor before throwing it away?
experimenting with the concept of 'beard'. I've not shaven since a day or two before new years, and i look like a young Matthew Kelly.
Normal I use a Gilette Fusion, wonderful things, although I have crap skin on my neck which cuts to fuck regardless of what I use :(
2. Once or twice a week.
3. Dunno, depends on how knackered the greeny/blue strip looks before I use it. 5 or 6 times perhaps.
When that's gone they don't do it any more so I am sad!
I shave once every couple of weeks.
I use the razor until it hurts. I'm fucking cheap.
Once a week
I've had the same razor for about a year now
and trim on the lowest setting, once every 3 days.
'designer stubble' apparently.
2. Funerals (not weddings) and job interviews
generally some form of Gillette shaving foam/gel plus facewash/balm. A razor can do me for about 3 weeks before it goes.
I did get a King of Shaves gift set cheap in Boots just after Christmas. It's very good.
nice abandon reply re-jig.
i've just tried to reply 3 times but it keeps fucking up.
2. depends if I have to go anywhere
3. Way too many.
- Gillette gel, I think it’s the ‘deep cleansing’ one.
- Mach 3 Turbo blades
- Unless I’m slobbing about at the weekend or sporting a beard, I have to shave once, preferably twice, a day, otherwise it looks messy and is bad for my skin.
- Um, one blade per week, usually.
2. once a week - it's an all-over head job
3. i get through 2 razors per shave. i hate you hairless indie kids.
2. Once a week maybe twice if I need to look young and fresh.
3. ages and ages, they dont carode if you clean them after each use and don't use foam on them.
I found that my skin is alot better if I don't use foam or gel stuff. That stuff made my skin all soft while shaving so that it kinda took skin off at the same time and then gave me spots. No foam, just hot water works a treat for me.
now using an electric gillette shaver every day. it's rubbish but i'm slowly getting used to it.
Once every fortnight, maybe a little less if I'm getting really sick of having beardface, but the longer I leave it, the more knackered it leaves my razor, so I tend to only be able to use them once. I tend to throw it away when the "soothing aloe vera balm" or whatever it is on the razor has worn off.
decent razor (gilette something or other I think, replaceable head) and decent shaving foam (again, gillette or something)
at work: cheap disposables and cheapo supermarket foam, keep it in my locker for emergencies.
I shave once every other day if I remember, pointless shaving everyday for me. generally twice a week though, summit like that.
I have no idea how often I use a head - you can feel it be a bit naff, or see the results, so just change then. Not very often though.
the other days I give myself a quick once over with a braun electric, and give my sideburns and neck hair a trim.
Oh and razor blade goes about once every 6 weeks, I guess.
I also like to freshen up after with a bit of cologne, eau de toilette or aftershave. I have three now, cause I'm a pimp daddy.
every day for over a month now, I doubt if I'd even shaved every day for a week prior to this. Must be cause I'll be 40 this year, leaving my teens or something
About once ever 2 weeks.
Hmm, until it starts to hurt like a few above.
i'm not a massively hairy person. I use gillette fusion and just normal foam. I change razors when the green strip turns white!
*Once every week otherwise the harrowing ginger neckbeard encroaches
*Haven't used proper Man Razors since I was 17
Kings of Shave Shave oil
Gilette "Sensitive" Shave gel
One of those 4-blade vibrating razors
Nivea face cream afterwards when my skin dries out
2 or 3 times a week or before going out if I wanna look clean cut.
Much less hassle than shaving properly every day. And it leaves me with a sexy, rugged look that the ladies find frankly irresistible.
gillette sensitive gel
maybe twice a week
Well, the year before last now... whatever. It's brilliant. Takes a little bit longer to get as close a shave as with a razor, but you can SHAVE IN BED! YES! And it doesn't feel like you're doing anything other than stroking your chin. AND you don't need any foam, or gel, or anything.
It's the future.
AFTERSHAVE is what I was thinking of. But it's been so long since I've used it, I forgot what it was called. So now you know.
should be more but dont really care at the moment, mach 3, change the blade after 6 shaves or so
I find the best shaving foam is the ultra cheap gillette sensitive one that doesnt seem to be part of the rest of their range, like a cheap import version or something the one in the green can
i have one of those vibrating gillette razors! they're fun.
i never use gel or cream or anything before i shave, my method is to shave as soon as i get out of the shower, before i even put a towel to my face. i've not been cut once doing it this way so it works for me.
i don't put on aftershave but occasionally i use Lush moisterising products after i shave. Usually if i'm going out and i'm in the mood to take a lady home.
oh and i shave twice to 3 times a week normally.
- got a gillette electric orange razor thingy and I use gillette shaving gel: it's actually as good as they say it is. really close shave.
- I shave about every four days but it's growing back faster each time now which is irritating. Last had one on Thursday and I've already got fur.
- I keep the same blade on for about two week.
