Got myself a Chinese rip of a famous German razor, Merker Futur for $10. 100 blades another $10, I use about 5 blades a year, shave around 3x a week. Foam is too expensive, soap and a brush

Shaving?    1977 in Thailand:   Wedding day 1978:   19xx when my wife went back for 2 years:     2020:    Shaving is overrated.      

I keep my Gillette blade in a cup of vege oil as it is the oxidisation which causes it to go blunt.

Always wearing a mask when I'm out has changed my shaving habits. I no longer see the point of shaving just to go to the supermarket like I did in the days before Covid. Being at home a lot more is another excuse for shaving less regularly. 

 

I currently own a job lot of Watson's 5 bladed razors which I bought  when they were selling them off for less than half price. Not the best but they work.

I used to buy Gillette foam but discovered another brand in Tesco that I tried as it was on offer and I find it much thicker creamier and therefore lasts twice as long. Cost 99bt lasts me a couple of months.

funny that I am reading this.

I have just finished shaving my head with my wireless shaver and my top lip with a very good Japanese disposable.

 

I also shaved my nether regions this morning as the wife has been complaining for weeks.

My wife always just use a very lathery hand soap 😉

Yeah...I just normally use whatever soap I have on hand. I buy really good natural soaps from the local night market...coconut/mango/etc and they work up a great lather.

Works a treat and costs almost nothing.

 

Electric always burned my skin.

I use the original and an other slightly more agressive razor. I like them both but i do cut myself at times especially as im an inpatient guy.

 

But i saved tons of money compared to Gillette and often shaves better too.

Good for you but for that lower part prefer a chemical depilatory cream as it stops hair growth for much longer.

Well can't remember what I first used years ago, begins with a Y I think but I still see it on the shelves, absolute <deleted> as removes next to nothing. I have tried many over the years but the only one I find works well is FEM ( Rose) an Indian product and have used it ever since. Can be a bit discomforting for a while after but gets the job done.

Nothing to do with a modern craze in my case. Already said in another post my dislike to see beard growth. I also find under arm and pubic hair unsightly and have done for decades, not to mention a bacterial breeding ground irrespective of how many times a day your shower. But each to his own. Some Romanian women have so much under arm hair they sell it off for wigs
