hey i had a quick question about a razor. ive always used cheap disposable razors but today for one reason or another i got a gillette fusion. is there anything that i will need to do differently? is it much sharper or anything? probably a stupid question but i would rather ask a stupid question and not cut the **** out of myself haha thanks

I damn lazy at shaving, and I have fairly blonde facial hair so I usually get by with shaving every 3 days only....so hooray for the cheapo things

(though that gillette gel stuff is awesome)

more blades actually means your less likely to cut yourself. but yea, stick with the disposables, those gillette blades go dull so fast, it's ridiculous.

A bit off topic, but its still related so... Has anyone here seen the Gilette fusion commercial with the chick with the glasses and the guy? Is it just me, or did that girl look like a porn star?
Be cool.

Works a hell of a lot better than a disposable thats for sure. I use some crazy razor along with some other gillette shaving cream and it works bitchin.
#11
Just make sure you don't cut yourself with the extra blade on the back of the thing lol. Also, if you didn't already, get the Power one, the one that vibrates. You honestly can't even feel the blades and it's definitely the closest shave I've ever gotten with a razor.
#14
Yeah, when you turn 18 gillette seems to send everyone a free razor, I find it does work a lot better than the cheap one blade ones.

Yes and you discover it is the best shave of your life. Then you go to get new blades, and they cost like 40 dollars for a 5 pack. I Give them credit for this ingenious scam.

Either wa, you've probably had a shave, studies have shown you get the same treatment with 1 blade compared to how many you have on yours, and they remain as sharp too.

Waste of money really.
Are you reelin' in the years?

theyre about the same. just your gillette will be sturdier.

does anyone have any advice on how to get a tighter shave ? im not getting the smooth from my mach 3 that you see advertised. would an old fashioned shaving blade be any tighter ?

I find that cheap disposable razors are always the sharpest and give the closest shave.

Get a cut throat razor, I have one, it's the smoothest, scariest shave you'll ever have.

Thats coz the guy in the advert didn't actually have any hair to shave. They shave properly before hand, cover it up with shaving foam, and then pretend to shave with the advertised razor.

First shave following the direction of your hair. Then shave the other way around. Should be smooth like a baby's buns.

theres still a fine layer left. i have really hard stubble which i dont think helps. and ive always wanted to try using a proper cut throat razor, so I think I'll give that a go. should probs make sure i have some paper towels to before i start.

I like the Braun electric shavers, (360 Degree Complete FTS).
..but the only difference is the number of blades and design on those toss away things..........

more blades are supposed to give a closer shave but are higher in price to buy and will cut you easier IMO.
Less blades, not so close of a shave, cheaper, safer for the face
