    I personally don't like electric razors. For some reason they really bug my skin.

    I use Gillette Sensor Excel products.

    Same here. I use the Gillette Mach 3. Shaving sucks.

    i have the mach 3 turbo also, but i am sometimes late for school and don't want to look like a freak, so i want an electric to speed things up a little.

    Instead of spending a chunk of dough on a razor, maybe you could set your alarm 10 minutes earlier...... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    i use a remington 3shield and i love it.Does the same job as a razor with no burn and no bumps.AND it came with a trimmer for the goatee that i like to grow everyonce in a while.

    I'll try and help you. I got a Norelco for Christmas last year. I like it cause its easy, but i don't think any electric will ever cut as well as a normal one. If I shave with a Mach 3, by face is nice and smooth, but the electri can't go in as close, so it always leaves a little stubble, which i kinda like, just so I don't look like a baby, just not too much

    went electric 15 years ago and on my third one(wahl) like it the best so far, cost about 40 buck's, figure what you will pay for razor blades in 5 or 6 years /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
