    Shaving

    Just out of intrest and assuming you shave with a razor, which razor do you use?

    Im using a Wilkinson sword quattro at the moment which i find gives a nice shave.

    And what shaving foam/gel do you use if any?

    I use this clearasil stuff in the hope it will reduce the spots on my teenage mug

    I used to shave with a razon, Gilette Mach 3 Turbo thingy, but then I got a new Braun Electric thingy for xmas, think its a 8850 with a docking cleaning station, was reduced in Boots that made it affordable, now its just so much easier, but im lucky, I don't suffer from irritation after using it that quite a few people can do.

    Gel wise I found that Gillette was the best, I suppose its cos Im just too lasy to look eslewhewre for other products....thanks m@

    I use a Mach3 Turbo, and that Clearasil foam. The Clearasil foam does naff all... bit of a gimmick to be honest.

    I've heard the best razors to shave with are them Bic disposable razors, chuck them after 3 shaves, as every time you shave you'll have a clean blade.

    I use a Gilette Mach3 Turbo and Gilette Gel

    Only shave every 2 days during the week and not at all at weekends for two reasons.
    First off its cheaper and second I'm lazy

    Wilkinson Sword, Quattro
    Charles Worthington Shaving Gel (Absolutley fantastic stuff!)
    Nivea Sensitive Skin After shave balm

    That charles worthington shaving gel is the best. Smells excellent and softens the skin

    Tesco 3-blade razor - It's ACE, better than Gilette Mach 3! The blades stay sharper longer and the blades are closer to the edge, so it's easier to shave under your nose etc.

    The best thing though: It's half the price of the Mach 3.

    atm I'm using a mach 3 turbo deluxe streetfighter alpha edition ( the vibrating one ) with the gel that came with it in the boxset I got for xmas ( well... 1 of the 2 I got )

    They do get blunt pretty quick though compared to other razors

    Mach3 Turbo & Gilette Gel. Does the job nicely

    But I only get 3 shaves out of a blade before it's too blunt to use 'kin expensive.

    Mach3 turbo and wilkinson sword gel, although the best shave ever was a proper cuthroat razor, Beats any razor hands down.
