    so... yum. beards. i recommend just growing that beard out, it would be OMFGhot. thigh-rubbing smooth is overrated... a little scruff applied the right way can be very nice...

    i'll stop. this could get bad. all i meant to say was that i think beards are hot. :D

    We request bearded men because those men who are not yet of beard-growing age would obviously have little to add. Pre-beardy men are often too proud of their peach fuzz.

    hahahaha. Buddy J said pre-beardy.

    And Snark said beards it up.

    I love this thread so much.

    So I think I figured out my problem. When I shave two days in a row or more,each subsequent day is just murder. If I wait a day and get extra-beardy then I typically have a much cleaner shave with very little if no bleeding. It would be fine and dandy to just shave every other day and not deal with it, but I grow the facial hair back so quickly that I look like a bum by the second day.

    I think my skin is becoming too dry when shaving regularly. I think I may need to try out a post-shave lotion or something.

    Is this idea preposterous? Any suggestions on such a lotion if it would help?

    We have a Turkish Barber in town and they lather the soap in a bowl with boiling water from the kettle. The extra heat helps to open the pores and makes the hair stand on end. They use a cut Throat flick razer and use cold water afterward to cool the skin. This is then followed by a facial massage with some form of moisterizer.

    I have never had it done personally as I only need to shave twice a week. I start with hot water on the skin then the gell gunk discribed earlier. My weapon of choice is a supermarket own brand disposible razer (23p for 10). Afterward use a lot of cold water then Nivia moisterising balm. Works really well for me. Only thing I do find is that if I leave it too long and the hair has grown too much the razers tend to clog and pull rather than cut but at 23p for ten I dont mind using two blades per shave!

    For those that keep some facial hair... make sure you use products on that hair. too many of us just use the same bar soap on the facial hair... NO, NO, NO. Shampoo and conditioner... Not only does it clean the facial hair but it makes it feel softer and the skin below is cared for as well.

    Many women have commented that my beard is nice and soft making it better when getting close... This turned into a comparison between several of the men judges by several women. I was the only one that used shampoo and conditioner. I won the "soft" test... ;)

    I'm in a similar situation Lynx, but I haven't tried anything yet to combat it so I'm not sure what works and what doesn't, aside from building a really hot thick slick lather and using a very sharp blade on the second day.

    I had a 4-day 'stash but was ordered to get rid of it before I could take a pic. It was ridiculous.

    I'm sporting some several day old growth at the moment. Problem is that my several days and a 14-year old's several days are about the same. Sad that at 36 I still can't grow a full beard. My cousin has the same problem. We've got patchy growth, so we have to shave. I'd rather have nothing than this half-ass excuse for facial hair. FML.

    Hmm... really wondering if the blade makes a difference. I changed from a cream to a soap and it didn't help the second day shave. The only two things I can think of trying are new blades and/or a post-shave moisturizer.

    Prime, you mentioned using Nivea's "for men" moisturizing aftershave lotion. Do you still use it with your saftey razor, and do you think it would help?

    This may be a question for the B&B forums

    All this info might have already been posted, so forgive any redundancy..


    I've been shaving my head for almost 10 years now (not much up top, looks better gone.) Here's my daily routine (no irritation, no bumps). This is no small feat, since I sometimes think I'm part Bigfoot when it comes to hair (other than my head).

    I shave in the shower - use the hottest water you can stand on your face.

    Use a good facial scrub - I use Nivea Deep Cleaning or Exfoliating Facial Scrub - I work it in good with my fingers, and then use a wash cloth to scrub my head and facial hair areas. This cleans out the junk, and it helps the hair "stand up".

    I then lather up with Head Slick. Head Slick is by far the best shaving lotion I've ever used. My wife has taken to using it, or something like it for all her shaving needs. You can pick it up at Walgreens or Rite Aid for around $8. Incidently, an 8oz bottle lasts me almost 4 months. A little goes a long way with Head Slick.

    I use a Mach III or Fusion razor. The blades usually last me a week to a week and a half.

    After I'm finished, I soap up the washcloth, and scrub my face again. This helps clean out the pores again, and helps reduce the bumps later.

    After all this, rinse with cold water - this will tighten up your pores/skin, and reduce the bumps later.

    When you get out of the shower/finish shaving run a clean towel over your face - again, your trying to bring the remaining hair to the surface. Then use a good aftershave/mosturizer.

    Wow an interesting thread, My shaving issues have lead me to living with scruff, Waxing my face (I don't recommend it... it was more pain then it was worth and had other issues but after 5 days I had a good 3 weeks without needing to shave) getting by with a electric, and thinking about laser hair removal.
    My facial hair is so course that a single pass of a mach4 razer is dulled, and no mater what I do I end up with razer bumps and follicle infections, even the electric causes my skin sensitivity issues.

    I'll have to consider this old school shaving

    There was a guy that I went to high school with that had similar issues, and he ended up trying to Nair his face. He got some pretty chemical burns that looked like he had gotten into a fight with a road, heh. Eventually he recovered. :)

    Honestly, I have been shaving every day for 20 years with Dove soap for sensitive skin. Wet soap, hands and rub on face, shave and rinse. I use a Gillette Fusion shaver. I had no idea that some people have such a hard time shaving.

    People who have manly scruff - yes.

    People with peach fuzz - not so much.

    I would have tried nair on my face (the face version) but it still is a large risk for chemical burns according to the packaging.

    I tried Waxing my face instead....It was a VERY painful experience. I had to stop at 99% done, and it bleed a fair amount too....was nice for a few weeks, just not worth the pain. I took pictures during the experience too, if any one wants to see sadistic torture.

    @Annes, @poofie, I tried Growing it out once but it caused me other issues and pimples under the beard. it was not pleasant. I'll see if i have any pics from that dark period of my life. It never really got that good, I think Prime had a much better one based on the pic he posted.

    Personally, I use blades from old lawnmowers.

    Just a few of the different styles I've had the past couple of months, just experimenting on the requests of other people. I've had other funnier/better styles, but I can't seem to find the photos..

    I've never shaved using a blade, I use a pretty cheap trimmer and a pretty cheap electric shaver for blank patches. I do however shampoo my facial hair, and always put on some moisturizing cream after shaving.
