    Blade vs. Electric Razor

    Which do you prefer?

    I used to be a switch hitter, now I'm leaning more towards an electric most of the time. It can't be those circular razors though. I actually like the buzzer style and sometimes mix in the foils one.

    Does Lectric Shave actually work?

    Discuss :cool:

    Blade.

    Electric would irratate my skin, especially under my neck. I havent used one in years and I think the designs are much improved, so If someone has a good recomendation I would be willing to try again.

    Because I'm Irish, it takes me a couple of days to work up a good stubble. So I use a blade (Sensor) on M-W-F and a Remington electric on T-Th. Works for me.

    the blade has the closest babyface shave, but the electric is quick with no mess. I've been electric the past 2 years.
    Lectric Shave does help imho, I always make sure its handy.

    I use blades. Last time I used an electric, it felt like it was ripping the hair off my face even with new blades. Can anyone recommend a great electric razor? I'd be willing to give it another shot.

    This will give you a close shave without the blade!

    A buddy of mine tried it, left it on too long, and almost burned his face off! :D

    Total razor guy, I'd never use an electric.

    Blade vs. Electric Razor

    Razor, because the electric pulls on my hair and it irritates my skin

    Was a blade guy all the way until about 6 years ago. Always hated electric b/c they never shaved as close, were irritating, etc. But the only one I had used was the rotary Norelco. Then I received a panasonic as a gift and it was night and day. Love my panasonic. Still use blades every now and then.

    Razor. I tried an electric years ago and didn't like it. It pulled and didn't give me a smooth enough shave, especially for activities which had my face intimately close to delicate feminine tissues.

    Blade. I use a Shick Quattro and it's flawless everytime. I have an electric but rarely use it.
    Although, I'd use my electric over a Gillette. Fuk Gillette

    Blades are for men. Everything else is for women.

    Gotta go with the blade. Especially for the scrotum and pubic area.

    What does being Irish have to do with how long it takes to grow a bit of stubble?

    I use a razor, electric is too irritating.

    Braun electric: quicker and cheaper than buying blades.

    Blades. They just seem to do a better job. Nothing like a real honest to goodness straight razor shave though. (As long as your barber's 1st name is not Sweeney.)
