  1. Sep 6, 2008 #1
    I just bought a pack of replacement blades for my Mach 3 razor. It cost me $18.00....

    I got myself an electric last month. I'm pretty happy about it. Before, I could not shave everyday because it was irritating my skin. I know most women find a 2-3 days beard quite sexy on me, but a soft skin is more comfortable for kissing. :tongue2:

    I put this to the test. First, I shaved every other day with a razor, then I shaved every day with an electric. The results are: Out of 47 women, 32 said my skin was significantly more comfortable for kissing with the electric, 10 said I looked more sexy with a 2 day growth, 4 said either way is good, One told me to go sleep on the couch. My wife is not a big fan of the scientific method.

    I would like to ask Astro's opinion about kissing with a beard. Did we hack this thread already ?

    Adding insult to financial injury, I have noticed over the years that when Gillette comes out with a new blade the old ones aren't as sharp and don't last as long.

    What are they up to now ? 5 blades in a single cartridge I think. The Mach 3 when it first came out was the best blade they ever made.

    Even electrics get dull over time. Replacing the cutters costs a lot.

    It's a toss up. I bought mach 3's in a pack of 24 at Costco for $28, but I am really noticing that they are much duller.

    I'M an old geezer I guess I will just quit shaving except on holidays.:devil:

    :rofl: Come to think of it just when did that 2 to 3 day scruffy look become popular?

    I kiss fine with a beard, but you'd have to get Ms. Astro's opinion. :biggrin:

    She's seen me shaven 27+ years ago (for about 1 week). My kids have never seen me without a beard.

    I never liked shaving - never saw the point, and I never liked wearing cologne.

    No Fair. I just asked my wife what she thinks of the scruffy look. She said she thinks it is sexy but wouldn't want to kiss me. PEE on you Don Johnson.:tongue:

    My electric is cheap. (Hey, I'm a student.) The razor is a Philips Norelco Reflex Plus. The razor costs $26.98, which come with replacement heads. The replacement heads (same store, same shelf) separately cost $28.99. I won't bother trying to figure that one out.

    I've got a Norelco 7140XL, and it works just fine. Rechargeable, and you can rinse it under running water for fast clean-up. Like all manufacturers of electric razors, they lie about initial performance, saying that it takes at least a few days before your skin and beard get used to the new razor. The truth is that it takes a few days of use before the cutters wear into the guides and start cutting cleanly without pulling. It's the razor, not you.

    Can you cut yourself using an electric razor? I've never used one before. How close does it cut compared to a regular mach 3?

    I'm not going to switch to electric because I enjoy the process of using a razor. But Im just curious to know.

    I have electric but it irritates my skin.

    So, I just use dollar store. 5 disposable razors for 1$ :approve: (good for 1 month)

    My only guess is the 90s with grunge being high style, cause you see lots of pictures of Kurt (Cobain) with that kind of facial hair.

    If I use one of those electrics with 3 circles I always cut the thin membrane at the corners of my mouth. I use the mach 3 that vibrates, but the blades are so expensive I push it and get more shaves out of them than they have in them

    My wife of 20 years has never seen me shaven, except in old pictures. I think I started with a goatee in college, then went to a full beard in graduate school. While in grad school, I shaved it off for a while, then regrew it and have kept it ever since.

    I keep clean shaven, clipped fingernails and fresh breath.

    Are you implying that those with facial hair also have long fingernails and bad breath? ; )
