I either use a single blade bic disposable (for a quick shave)
or gilete fusion power for days that i have meetings with clients (no homo).

use shaving foam rather than gel but i guess that's thru habit... always shave after a shower as it cuts closer... and nivea aftershave balm afterwards.

Gillette Fusion Power ftw with some Gillette shaving cream

Gillette Fusion blade, with Gillette sensitive skin gel, then the aftershave balm afterwards. I get really dry skin, and can't use other products as they make a complete mess of my skin!

Quite simply the best shave you will ever have.

i used to use the cheapie blades, and could guarantee i would make my blood fall out every time.
6 months ago i switched to fusion blades and will NEVER go back. never cut since. now my blood lasts longer so i dont need to make as much of it :roll:

and i use less blades in the long run as each one lasts more than just one shave. i used to use around 2 cheapie blades each time.
#22

I use something similar to this with the double edged razor blades, closest shave you will ever have and I'm saying this after years of switching between electric and all the 2,3,4 and 5 blade razors out now.

I use a natural hand made soap for lather and a non Alchoholic after balm.

Mmmmmmmm..NICE!.

just started using a razor i got in a goodie bag, is called intuition and is the first razor i can use in the shower cos no shaving gel needed. just love it and use it every second day

How does that shave, theres no razor - just looks like a thin piece of metal to massage your face.
#27
yep the gillette fusion razors are the baddest mofos ever
take a warm shower or bath to open your pores and soften hair, to get the closest shave always shave with a clean sharp blade, i change my blades after 4-5 shaves as i find they blunt quickly
firstly shave with the growth of your hair which is downwards, then for a extra close shave i flip the blade and go from south to north vertical direction, i know it works cause i can hear the cutting of the hair when i do this even though i cant see any
rinse face with cold water and moisturise
ps no electric shaver can come as close as a wet shave

Sorry but i gotta disagree, you don't know the meaning of life until you've shaved with one of these.

Nair do a really good wax that you heat up in the microwave. One advice, drink a bottle of wine first.

Theres a Barbers in Bristol that still uses these, my mate loved going to them if he's been away from Bristol for a length of time.

i got my barber to order me one cos i just got fed up with Mach3's, fusions etc etc.
it took a couple of attempts but now i am adept at using a "CUT THROAT" razor and gotta say these are the ultimate in shaving when used with KoS OIL, and the different styles in the old goatee / sideburns dept. that one can achieve is unreal

It uses safety razor blades. Once you get used to the weight of the razor it will give you the best shave ever! You'll also realise that all the multple blades and vibrating razors are nothing but a gimmick.

Shaving is all about the prep, the 1/2 hour after you have a shower (including your normal facial skincare routine ie face wash etc) in the morning is prime for shaving, the pores on your facial skin are open and your skin is suitably hydrated for a shave. I prefer a shave foam for shaving, I use the Real Shaving Company Shaving Cream for sensitive skin (double concentrated), its very good and lasts as you only need a small amount to make a decent lather. A nice sink of hot water for cleaning your razor of hair and foam, again I use a Gillette mach turbo which is fine for the job. Once you have finished, rinse in the hot water and then rinse again with the coldest water from the tap to close the pores up again. A good moisturiser 5/10mins after this will freshen and smooth your skin making nice and clear.

Aldos in clifton?
I go there, his wet shaves feel nice. He uses some kind of mint shaving foam :lol:

At home I use nivea and disposable mach 3's, works good enough for me.
I always shave before a shower even though people always tell me to do it after.

But come on.. it cost £40 and it looks like its worth £10 at most in the picture, do you understand what I mean?

No, its made from brushed stainless steel so it will last a lifetime and the blades work out at 38p each. £40 may seem expensive at first, but it will pay for itself several times over when compaired to most major brands.

Alright after doing some extensive research your definitely right, I can't wait till it comes. Although, I ordered the 38C one which has a grip and is longer than this one, cheaper and rated higher than this one.

Thanks so much for the recommendation.
