Electric Shavers
Do any of you guys use them?

Just curious, do any of you chaps use an electric shaver on a regular basis?

I used one about 10 years ago (a remington) and got fed up with it rather quickly because it was uncomfortable to use. The fast moving cutting blades made the protective foil hot and this caused an unpleasant sensation on the face, causing irritation.

Have shavers progressed since then? are they really a viable alternative to wet shaving?

Be glad to get your opinions.

Well, I use a straight razor (yes, the dangerous one...) since ages, and I feel that you could never find a better way to shave (I didn't know it was so sexy, by the way...). Of course it takes more time than the regular safety razor, so, when I have to run, I use the old twist-and-drop-in-the-blade (made in China, very cheap but working great after more than 5 years: so much for marketing, major companies and so on...). I tried all the others (Mach3 and all those electric traps included), and I am sure the straight razor will stay at the top of my preferences (Disclaimer: this may very well happen because I am a plastic surgeon in my real life...).

well, I used to go to a nearby public steambath and shave there using a razor of the blade variety. At present, I've no problems shaving as I've happily developed alopecia totalis and am on my way to alopecia universalis - both conditions which have certain advantages regarding the time and money spent etc on shaving and haircut.

Just got a Philishave 4609. Thought I'd see what all the 'rotary' fuss is about. Plugged it in for its 16 hour charge at 16:30 PST last night, so that makes 8:30 PST go time.

On my old Braun the light went out when the charging was done. Does anyne know if that's the case with a Philishave 4609 too? It hasn't gone out yet and it's 5 minutes past deadline. ;)

Thanks to this thread I got myself a Mach III for Christmas. I LOVE it. THANKS! to all the guys who posted their comments. It's way more comfortable than the old double-bladed razor I had, and I think it shaves closer too.

As to electrics: I have never had the $ to spend on a top-of-the-line electric, so I can't comment. The cheap ones I have briefly tried seemed like they pulled the hairs of my beard out of my face as much as shaving them off.

I happen to think that when you kiss a girl and have her cringe in pain because of your unshaved skin..

I know it. I have never kissed a man, however . . . One of my earliest memories: when I was very young the old guy next door used to toss me in the air and catch me, which I loved. But sometimes my face would slide against his five-o-clock shadow and ouch! -- my tender cheek would actually be red from the abrasion.

Can anyone recommend an electric shaver for around £50 / $75?
