Electric razor preference

For those that hate blades, what is your electric razor or preference and why?

I currently have a Braun 8900 series but am considering a switch to the new norelcos because the new blade replacements for the braun suck.

Norelco Nivea in the shower works great for me. Four times a week. Love the electrics that can be used in the shower.

I'm a straight razor or double edge guy myself, BUT I do have a Norelco and Remington on hand for when I'm in a real hurry. I MUCH prefer the Remington, but I also find that I must use Lectric Shave pre-shave to get the hairs to stand up before I use an electric razor.

For any kind of shaving, preparing your face is the key to getting a good comfortable shave. For electric razors, you want your beard to be stiffer and to stand up so the electric razor can cut them. For blades, you want your beard to be soft and lay down so the blade can do the work (this is MOST especially true when using a straight razor).

Well they discontinued all the parts for this razor so when my blades are done I won't have a choice but to buy a new razor. Great choice on my part. but I can sure buy the RQ12 replacement blades by the razor brokers for $250

Man, all of this just seems absurd.

I'm no stranger to sensitive skin. Mine is CRAZY sensitive. That's why I switched to a safety razor and Feather blades. They're ridiculously sharp, which means less drag on the skin, which means less irritation. And they don't "lift and cut" the beard hairs, which means they don't give you ingrown hairs because those hairs can't breach the surface as easily.

And the best thing is that a $5 razor and $10 in blades will last you a year.

I know you've probably heard it a million times, but there really is no better shave with less irritation than a super, super sharp blade.

eh, who knows, maybe I will give it a try sometime. I've never tried a safety razor. The cartridge razors just tore me up so I assumed a super sharp safety razor would be even worse. Seems I didn't do my homework very well.

Cartridge razors are probably the worst. There are too many blades, and they're not even as CLOSE to as sharp as the worst safety razor blade. More blades means more irritation.

The real key to a good shave with a safety razor is SUPER short strokes, and learning to shave with the grain all over your face, which means you'll have to turn the razor sideways in some instances just to stay with the grain -- I do. I have to turn the razor completely sideways on the right side of my neck to stay with the grain, but the other side is just up and down. It's weird. But once I figured that out, I never had any irritation problems ever again.

You really don't have much to lose. You can get everything you need from Amazon for about $30.

Razor - $3
http://www.amazon.com/Silver-Double-...s=safety+razor

You can always upgrade to something sturdier and more adjustable later, if you figure out you like it.

Feather blades - $4.25
http://www.amazon.com/Feather-Razor-...feather+blades

Probably the best blades out there.

Cheap brush - $11
http://www.amazon.com/SimplyBeautifu...s=badger+brush

These range from this cheap to hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Again, this is an upgrade that can wait until you figure out if you like shaving this way.

Proraso Soap - $10
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A2AL2VIK9NX238

Awesome soap, and you don't need a separate bowl for it.

That will all get you started, and it's not a huge investment if you decide you don't like it. Hell, if you don't like it, I'll buy most of it from you lol

So you can't just use normal shave cream with a safety razor?

You can, but it's not awesome.

For one thing, the brush helps lift the hairs away from your face, and really gets the soap/shave cream in between the hair and the face, both of which decrease irritation. Second, that particular soap is probably better than any can cream you pick out. Third, shave soap will last way longer than any regular can of shaving cream.

You don't need a bowl with that soap I listed. But any mug or bowl will do. Doesn't need to be special.

I forgot how much I hate Amazon and their damn ordering rules. The soap is an add on item and my order isn't enough. Then one item is shipped by amazon while the other are free shipping from the actual seller so I can't get free shipping on that one item. off to ebay I go.
