Well a foam is good, and my Huney and son swear by their mock 3 razors! The electric just don't seem to give such a close shave.

The choice of shiving products depends on your skin actually. What is your skin type? If you have dry skin, then you should use a shaving cream whereas if you have oily skin you should stick to gels.

Absolutly. Be careful about the type of shaving cream you use. For oily skin using a glycerine based shaving gel will prevent skin irritation. As far as "best" goes I equate that with "closest" and you'll never beat a razor... as far as how many blades... don't go too crazy I personally use 3
Also, make sure to complete your shaving job with a proper moisturizer for your skin type or aftershave balm, but do not use alcohol based aftershaves!

Coochie cream (laugh it up
) works wonders for body as well as face. It does wonders for me and I've never turned back. I used to get horrible bumps afterwards and when i switched that problem was greatly reduced.

Oh also use tendskin as an aftershave and you can't go wrong

I get ingrown hairs from time to time so I recently started using extra virgin olive oil to shave with. I have a Gillette Fusion razor. It's the smoothest shave next to a straight razor. My skin feels exceptionally smooth afterwards and it's the best feeling. I'm a fan of home remedies too because I've seen much better results.

It really depends on your skin type.

Does the EVO make your razor dull quicker? Sounds like a great thing if your razor holds up ok. Seems like the oil would dull it.

I honestly haven't noticed any dulling. If it did my skin would know because it doesn't react well to a dull razor. I wouldn't think anyones skin would react favorably.

......"Coochie Cream"????? Please 'splain! =O

I think Freddy (The Smooth One) swears by this brand:
The Art of Shaving

Any silicone product can also make the razor glide!

Yep I hate a dull razor myself!!

Being I am female and don't shave my face, I will definately share this with the boys in the house-


Great idea! thanks
