Expensive Electric Shavers

Postby Firebird on Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:00 pm

Has anyone ever bought an expensive shaver?

IE:
http://www.amazon.com/Braun-Series-Puls ... 38089011_1
or
http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-ES8243A ... 38089011_3

These vs. maybe a $40 one?

My facial hair grows ridiculously fast and I have weak skin - cut myself easy......meaning I can't use razors everyday - twice a week at most.

I've exclusively used Braun shavers for 15+ years. They're very gentle and they angle exceptionally well around the contours of your face. I usually buy a new high priced model every few years or when I think a newer model is worth it. I can guarantee you will love one of theirs.

BTW, I can't stand any shaver that's got like 3 heads such as this. Maybe it's my face, but I can never reach the right places and it keeps pulling on things and feels totally uncomfortable.

Shaving is silly.

Wax your pubes while you're at it.

Not a bad idea. It can make you look longer.

I just bought one of the old school single blade safety razors, shaving soap and shaving brush. Electric razors give me horrible razor bumps and so do all these multi blade razors.

The double edged razor blades were less than 20 dollars for 100 of them so it is a lot cheaper. With the soap and the razor I get a lot less cuts and razor bumps. My hair grows pretty quick but I have to shave every day I work unfortunately.

Appearance is more important than reality to some guys, I suppose.

I have that Panasonic - bought it about 3 months ago. It shaves as close or almost as close as a razor - by far the closest shave I've had with an electric.

But I also get the same irritation on my neck that I did with a razor, so maybe you'd get cuts with it? For me, it's a minor trade-off for a close shave. I don't shave every day, so maybe that makes it worse, I'm not sure.

As for the price, compare the replacement costs of the foil/blades, and how often you'll need to replace them. The 40 buck one might be more expensive in the long run

How's the weather at your cabin in the woods? Or are you George R. R. Martin? :)

Appearance is a part of reality sometimes. I have a beard but I still have to trim the edges so I don't look like a neckbeard Linux programmer or a Middle Eastern terrorist stereotype. I think I have a Norelco I found at Target; cost me about $40 and gets the job done.
