    Shaving is fun again.

    Although looking around the internet for tips on shaving cream, I've decided that most "Wet Shaving" enthusiasts are insufferable.

    Ned Braden, I moved this thread to what I feel is the appropriate section. If you feel I've made an error in judgement then feel free to move it back.

    Not even sure what forum it landed on. I'm still trying to figure out gay cat land.

    All i can recommend right now is this razor:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000NL0T1G/ref=aw_cr_item_title?qid=1351297985&sr=1-1
    And some of these blades:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/cr/B0022R947O/f=4/ref=aw_cr_f_hpc?qid=1356655197&sr=8-2
    Although you should start with fewer than 50 and see how they work for you.

    I'm also about to try some Proraso soap, because I figure if it works for real italian beards it should work for mine too.

    I bet you can find some great shaving cream in the uk though.

    What have you been shaving with?

    Neutrogena shave gel and a 5 blade gillette razor that I don't change out often enough. It is just way too harsh, and I'm always cutting myself up. Although, in actuality I haven't been shaving with anything lately, since the holidays are prime beard time. Wanted a fresh start and something to look forward to, ya know?

    It must be such a fun hobby, watching your beard grow. I thought I could probably get a decent one going but after 5 days of attractive stubble my face is just a mass of red pubes.

    I don't know how you can maintain a moustach with a gilette fusion. It's much easier to shave around my nose with the 180.

    I use a Gillette Sensor that I've had since 1994 and Barbasol original. I only shave when I take a shower, very convenient for washing up before and after. Also softens up the beard nicely and a pack of 10 blades lasts well over a year.

    I can't stand the feeling of any growth past stubble, so I never go more than 3 days without a shave, and never experimented with any sort of facial hair.

    Even two days of stubble has gotten uncomfortable for me.

    If you use any kind of disposable blades, I recommend getting a razor sharpener. I have one that has already paid for itself.

    an accountant at work yesterday told me she really liked my beard to which I responded "I don't" and laughed.

    i've been exploring the beard for the past couple months though. don't feel compelled to shave for work and now that i'm graduated i don't feel the need in social situations either. plus women love beards. i hate that they love beards because when i have one it is itchy, feels dirty, and the fact that it's always growing means i am never quite comfortable with it.

    i put this picture on the internet last night because i love David Lee

    There's an outside chance that I could possibly grow a Jasper beard, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    In my experience women do not love beards. Perhaps it is generational.

    I mean, moot point since I can't really grow one.

    In my experience the "George Michael" on a fully beard capable face works wonders with the ladies, but going too much beyond what I have in the above picture is a turnoff. The ideal for me would be shaving once a week, enjoying the benefits of both smooth and scruffy.

    At first interpreted that as "George Michael Bluth" and thought, "Well that's what I'm rockin all the time."

    Ned's facial hair is something of an inspiration. I gotten a few compliments since I've lessened the frequency of my shaving and I owe all that to Ned.
