What Razor Do You Use?

Fri Sep 26, 2003 4:44 pm

I started with a Gilette Sensor, but nowadays I use a Wilkinson protector. No cuts with that one.

Oh, and do you shave up or down ?

Shave up! It's the only way!

Day-to-day: Bic disposable. It does the job perfectly well; why pay double for a different brand?  Smile

Sensor Mach 3 / Turbo.

However, the key to a good shave is getting a shower mirror and shaving in the shower.

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.

Gillette Mach III Turbo. Refill blades are pricey, but it gives me the best shave and leave most of the skin on my grill afterwards.

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.

Still using my Gillette sensor excel, lol. Ah well, it works and it's cheaper than Mach 3. I'll probably go Mach 3 one of these days.

Oh and on my face I shave down, on my neck I shave up.

I use Mach III. I never shave up, I did once and got the worst razor burn ever. It gives me a good shave.

Use Nivea after shave balm. It works great, especially if you have sensitive skin like me.

Also a Mach III user.
I shave down and try not to go against the hair. I do it every two mornings and like how it feels and looks the day after.

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.  Big thumbs up 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!  Angry

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 use the Mach 3 Turbo. I just switched over from the standard Mach 3 about a month ago, and I have been very impressed with the results so far.

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.

Mach 3 all the way. The blades are significantly cheaper in India, so I stock up when I am there for my travels.

I am partial to a sideways stroke. It makes sure that you dont miss any spots, especially when in a rush and the bathroom mirror is fogging up from the hot water!

I alternate between the Mach 3 and this other disposable version of the Mach 3 by Gillette (I forget the name, but it’s not the Mach 3 – I think it’s called the Triple Sensor Excel, but it has the same head as the Mach 3). Both are very pricey, but the disposable version is a bit cheaper and gives about the same shave.

I’ve tried just about everything – electric and regular blade. The worst were those cheap blue ones. I have also tried that Schick Xtreme 3, which is good, but not quite as clean as the Mach 3.

As for shaving technique, I shave up; down is just not close enough for me and I’m very obsessive about closeness. I also almost always shave in the shower to ensure that the hairs are as soft as possible. Generally, I used to shave every few days as I’m lazy, but now that I am working in an office again, I have to shave pretty much every day. Though I have a beard right now. We’ll see how long I can get away with that. LOL.

I’m looking into electric razors right now and need some advice. I’ve narrowed it down to the Braun Syncro System (the self-cleaning one) and the Panasonic ES8092NC (the wet/dry one). I hear both give as close a shave as the Mach 3. Which one should I get? If anyone has either one, would you recommend it? And if there are any other electric razors out there that you’d recommend, by all means, mention it.
