Yeah, abut 6 years ago I had a question about shaving and found a solution for me, my hair do not grow anymore. How, you may ask, well, I stopped shaving and stopped trimming hair completely, after my bird reached certain stage it just stopped growing.

Hey Z, why don't you just grow a beard? I keep nagging Ken to let his grow back, but he won't. (Spoilsport!)

Seriously, some women really go for that fuzzy look.

Alix, that is what I say too, the fuzzy look!

Hi Z,
I've been using an electric shaver for about15 years now.
Technology has improved but no, it doesn't shave as close as a blade.
That being said, I've only purchased two different brands, Braun and Remington. For me, the Braun shaved better.
Good luck.

Two things.

1. In spite of my age, I would not be able to grow a decent beard. The best I believe I could hope for would be a rather scruffy-looking goatee... and I've known very, very few people who can make that work.

2. I'm not trying to impress any woman other than the one I am with... and she does not go for that fuzzy look.

Thanks for your suggestion, though.

Darn. I was hoping for a cheap solution for you Z. Oh well, good luck in your search!

That WOULD have been the easiest and cheapest way around it...

Hey Gb

I tried the stuff you recommended... a couple of times now (both times with a blade that was not quite new). I love it! Really interesting sensation. I'm used to using gel/lather. This is quite different. I love the cooling sensation you get when you shave with it. It IS 'almost fun' to shave.

I think it does/will make the blade last longer. It might wear out at the same rate, but I think you can use it comfortably a little longer.

Thank you!

I am so glad it worked out for you. I was actually just thinking about you this morning as I was shaving. I was a couple of hours away from asking you how it went
