Do I shave wrong

or is it impossible to shave like they do on adverts, one uninterrupted clean stroke down the face and it obliterates all hairs in its path. If I do that it does more or less fuck all.


Shaving is really annoying; hate that I have to do it more than once a week. Last time I posted in the selfie thread it was having very recently shaved and I looked less terrible than normal.

i was very bad at shaving and my life has been immeasurably improved since i stopped doing it

Yeah the way it is on adverts is bollocks. Takes me about three goes of each bit up and down to even make a difference.

I’ve not shaved with a razor for about 15 years. I do not miss it.


Edited. Needlessly aggressive-sounding.

I only learned how to shave about a year ago, used to think I kept using blunt razors but it turned out I was holding the razor at the wrong angle. I’m 31.

Anyone else get bare lazy and hop out of the shower when they’ve shaved their face the day before and just dry shave that foolish face?

  • Without a thought
  • Hmmm, not sure I trust that idea, having watched adverts on the topic
  • Maybe if i ate more mackerel, eggs and peas, but no
  • Not even on razerbook
  • Electric shave wanker.

I do my shaving at night before bed a few times per week, and my face always feels so good on the pillow afterwards that I sleep in the following morning. Happens every time.


Sort of? The main cheek bits and neck, yes. Chin and around the jaw, no, but that’s more about the lines than anything, I think.

Getting a beard trimmer and setting it to a certain length and shaving so all my hairs are the same length has been the highlight of my year.


i miss bits and they annoy me but it’s much less annoying and obvious than when i missed bits shaving

I have been clean shaven once in the last two decades. My kids both FREAKED OUT* and I’ve never been back to shaving. Which is a relief because a) I have moles that I nick and then bleed everywhere, b) my skin is sensitive as and gets rashy and c) CBA with that every day.

I’m really bad at shaving

Should probably get a proper beard trimmer

I live in a flat share and every three weeks it’s my turn to clean the bathroom.
I use an electric razor which just throw the hairs all round the room. This requires a bathroom clean everytime I shave.

  • It’s very clever that you now only shave once every three weeks
  • Stop being lazy and growing a half beard

I really can’t stand the feeling of having a ‘beard’. I put it in inverted commas because I can’t actually grow anything decent, I just look like a guy who’s given up on hygiene.

I’ve been using an electric razor for a while now. Our sink at home got blocked and I was convinced it was my beard hairs. The electric takes AGES so now I keep leaving it too long and it’s not exactly pleasant. And because I am a cheap bastard I still need to whip out the old Mach III (or whatever the 5 blade version is) and tidy up after.

Yeah I’ve had a beard for many years and kinda fancy the feel of being clean shaven again. But I really don’t want to see my face sans beard again. Maybe I’ll get a fake beard.
