I'm not sure why....but I have a need to know this ultra-important information!

Which is the better way for the male of the species to rid ourselves of the dreaded facial foliage? Straight razor or Electric?

My vote: Remington Electric!!

What age did you start shaving? (Pain in the rump isn't it?)

We're in agreement here! And I , too, had the sideburns (until a few years ago).

Score is......ELECTRIC 2,

I shave with a razor. I am a classic fan. I started shaving when I was 14. I had sideburns and a moustache but I shaved them before they were too obvious.

Uh-oh I can see a new war coming up ... Well, here comes my statement:
I have always used a Wilkinson razor. It is more classic than electric shavers are. It is also cleaner, closer and less expensive. But first and foremost I feel much better: the skin is smooth and refreshed, and I just couldn't stand all the noise an electric shaver makes. It reminds me of a big bug flying around my head.
When did I start saving? Don't know, sorry.

At least you don't have to shave your legs. When I was in college sitting in class one day, a guy took out an electric razor and started shaving right there in his desk. Wish it was that easy for us girls!

I use Edge gel and a razor. Any electric makes my neck break out. I also wish I didn't have to shave - it's such a pain in the ass! But I don't want facial hair.

I have been using a Gilette Sensor Excel razor with Edge shaving gel since I started shaving at age 14. I find that anything other than that combination leaves my skin irritated and red with bumps...including electric razors.

I prefer dry shaving just out of the shower, usually with a Bic disposable. Electric shavers hurt. I tried one and it pulled the hairs out. It sucked. Maybe a bad one, but never tried since.

When I am compelled by forces to shave I choose a Mach 3 and whatever foam/gel I have handy at the time. I often don't shave tho. I've had a beard for several weeks now. Started shaving at 13. Sideburns and Mushtache. The mustache became a source of mocking from my less testosterone laden classmates so I shaved.

Its gotta be the razor. It cuts so much closer, less painful... although not as convenient as an electric model or as fast.

I think I started at 13 when I got that little mustache and sideburns. Like Jessman, I was a bit ahead of my peers, but not as far ahead as this other guy who already had a hairy chest (lol), so I escaped the teasing.

Schicks are by far the closest razors in existance IMO. I replaced my Mach 3 with that a day ago. I use Gillete gel w/ aloe, however I want to switch to Edge due to my war against acne. Actually, the Schick helps with that. Electrics are just too damn expensive, and my Schick costs $3.79 @ the local Jewel store.

DELL_dude: I will have to try that.  Big thumbs up

I started shaving when I was 15.

I have only just started shaving everyday (I didn't really have that much facial hair) and had to switch to an electric shaver (Philishave by Philips) to stop my skin from drying out too much.

The Philishave is the best electric razor I have ever used. Remingtons? Nasty.

Cheers,

I use a Mach 3. It works very well. I started shaving when I was 12. I had facial hair much earlier than anyone else. I get dissed a lot about it, but I don't really care.
