Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
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.
Wet shave is such a nice luxury thing to carry with you when traveling as well. No bulky electric and looking for a power point, just a reflective surface and some water and your cooking :-)
Going for a nice bath and a shave soon...
europeforvisitors - heh. If I were betting, I would bet that most people who read this forum probably use Google- but that many computer users who just got their computers are using MSN (due to it being bundled with IE/etc)- and that eventually everyone turns to Google.
One would only use other search engines in case Google didn't seem to turn up what you were looking for in the results, aka they haven't indexed the site and hopefully another engine has. Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck finding things when they weren't in Google SERPs. heh.
when the mach 3 came out i switched to that and had no real problems. other then a terible skin infection.
i seriously hate shaving. currently i will clip my beard using some cheapo hair clippers about once a week. and i will shave part of my neck and face with the mach 3 about once a week as well.
there is some new electric out there where you can dial your sensitivity level. so it could be set to 5 o'clock shadow mode. this would kind of be nice. i just cant justify spending 100 dollars on one. perhaps if there was a money back guarantee i would try it.
Then your girlfriend or wife goes out and buys you one. She thinks, 'wow, that must be nice, my boyfriend still uses a wet razor!'
You know, even though -- as I mentioned before -- I usually use a Panasonic Sonic 3 wet/dry electric, with regular shaving gel, I use a Sensor Excel sometimes. And among the days I always use that regular blade are the mornings when my girlfriend is over... because that's what she wants to watch. So I'd probably never get an electric as a gift.
Weekends I use an electric which has a closeness dial. Philips, works well.
Shakil, whats this sissy talk, an electric shaver is kinda like a power tool, hehe.
(BTW: No body watchs, that is weird, might be fun though.)
On a similar note, I just purchased a new product for acne and ingrown hair from Neutrogena. They have a face wash, shave gel (not a foam), and an aftershave. The results so far are good. I am alergic to some fragrances, but this one I am not. It has a tingling feeling to it. I guess it is the salycitic acid for the acne.
(Not recommended for anyone used to the "safety razor" generation, or electrics. Not to worry, though, I bet most of you guys have never even SEEN one of those things.)
To get back on topic, I shudder when I think of my first several experiences with electric shavers. I realize they've come a long way, but until I get one as a gift, blades will be in my medicine cabinet. (Add to that the annoying habit of a former boss shaving in the car on the way to meetings.)
<kidding>My original thought was.... WOW.. guys discussing "beauty secrets" --this must be the new millenium! Does anyone have any preferences for hair coloring? Nail polish? Does this monitor make me look fat?</kidding>
