    Electric Razor

    I've been thinking about getting an electric razor to save myself some time. Does anyone here have any recommendations for me?

    Whatever you can afford from Braun. I've had mine for about 7 years now.

    Re: Electric Razor

    if you find one that doesn't pull and hurt like hell, I'd be happy to hear about it.

    Agree here. I was able to score one on clearance about 3 years ago. Haven't regretted it at all

    Same here. I haven't found an electric razor that doesn't burn the hell out of my skin.

    Re: Electric Razor

    I've used a Remington for about 15 years. Saved me a ton of money on shaving cream and razors. I found that I get a much closer shave, and less razor burns if I don't press very hard. But, if I let my beard grow for three or more days, I have to go old-fashioned again.

    Re: Electric Razor

    I opened this thread thinking there'd be a discussion on altering footballs with a razor to change how they act during a game...

    As far as using an electric razor on your face, I avoid them at all costs. Makes my face hurt!

    Re: Electric Razor

    I've used an electric one for years and get along fine with it. Once in a while, I'll get a little bit of burn on my neck. I think it just depends on the person and if their skin can handle it.

    Re: Electric Razor

    It's easier on my skin compared to a traditional razor. Probably cause it doesn't cut as close to the skin. That's not an issue for me because I don't have black/dark hair.

    Re: Electric Razor

    I used to use one (a Braun). When I first switched to it there was an adjustment period (full of the pulling/burning, etc.) but after a couple weeks I got used to it. I never was able to get it as close as with a safety razor though. Eventually it crapped out and I reverted because I didn't want to spend the money on another one. I don't plan on switching back. I guess having tried both methods I'll spend a few extra minutes with the safety razor because I like the closer shave.

    Re: Electric Razor

    My skin always gets irritated when I use a razor vs my electric. Too close with a blade.

    You need to buy a good razor (I guess Braun is getting props here) or you will regret it.

    This goes both ways..if you buy the cheap 2 blade disposable razors you likely will get a lot of razor burn. But if u spend the extra and get a gillete fusion with the 5 blades its much better.

    Re: Electric Razor

    I avoid razor burn by shaving in the shower. I also use a Gillette Mach III or anything from Gillette. I tried a Schick and it has issues getting cleaned out. Just gets clogged with hair really quick
