I use a Wilkinson Sword 3D FX Diamond Protector, but still manage to get cuts. I have a lot of in growing hairs, and no matter how much I scrub every day with an exfoliator still get them. Any tips anyone?
BTW I shave up AND down, depending on which way my hair grows.

Another Gillette Mach 3 user. Began shaving with the Atra Plus, but finding refills for the cartridges became increasingly difficult. Just couldn't find the namebrand ones in the grocery store anymore... never ever use the generics, nowhere near as good. Now at my local grocery store the Mach 3 Turbos have supplanted the plain old Mach 3s... which were at least 50 cents less per 4 pack.
As for which direction. Always down first. You should never shave up on the first pass... too much skin irritation that way. And if I have the time and actually care how I look I will go another pass shaving up to get that super close shave and reduce the chances of a 5 o'clock shadow.

Been a Gillette user for years now. Started with the old Sensor Excel, been using the Mach 3 for several years now (two blades is so five years ago). I have gone back from time to time using some cheapy disposable razors (I could not afford to spend $8 one Mach 3 refills), but now hame back permanently on the Mach 3.

I use Gillette Track II disposable blades for sensitive skin (with no pivot).
I shave down, then up.
I usually wait 3 or 4 days between shaves (I'm a Truck Driver - so I can), that way my wiskers are much softer & I don't get any razor burn. If I'm forced to shave with 1 or 2 days growth, I end up looking like someone went at my neck with a blow torch!
Once, when I was out of shaving cream, I tried using shampoo, and it worked great!

I have always been using the Gillette sensor excel, I tried the Mach3 once but I didn't like it. Because I couldn't push the razor on my skin "even a soft push" due to the position if the rotating hinges being situated on the lower edge of the razor piece causing it to bend away from my skin instead of right on the back of it as in the sensor excel.

I have only every used a Mach 3 Turbo...now a Turbo G-Force...just beacuse it looks cool. I find it works better going up rather then down....even though I use both...and only need to shave every other day.
