I'd say that my skin is tough man-skin, but that would be a lie. I usually bleed somewhere by the time I'm done shaving WITH cream. The dry shaving really isn't as bad as it sounds. Just don't expect to get a close shave or anything.

I also have extremely sensitive skin.. sensitive to the point that it dries till it looks white/chalky. I have found that GEL type shaving lotions work best not to dry out my skin and cause issues. the shaving cream does not work anywhere near as well as the Gels IMHO. I do shave before i shower just because I don't like to take the chance of missing some shaving gel after i'm done. After showering I use a moisturizing exfoliating stuff and some actually "facial" lotion. For me, none of these steps can be skipped. They're basically a necessesity unless I want to have my skin so dry that it bleeds.

Oh yeah, I also generally shave before showering, for the same reason of rinsing the stuff off. I don't even rinse before the shower. Just shave and jump in.

They can be occasionally cute, but don't get used to it. :P

I've found the best trick yet, Don't. I've got a trimmer with these little spacer things so you can pick how long you want the hair. 1/4" for the whole shebang. Saves a lot of time too.

Yeah, but most women don't like to be exfoliated whenever you kiss them. When I first quit my retail job, I let it go for a while. On me, it just looked nasty, but I would have ended up shaving it off anyway for the reason stated above.

I do have a goatee though. Now people only think that I'm a couple of years younger than I am, instead of like five...

I'm sure that might be a problem for some, But I tend to make very few choices based on what I think prospective mates may like. If they don't tell me they obviously didn't care very much. Plus this one likes it and I'm pretty lazy so eh.

To avoid razor burn, you must make sure the skin is wet, and it is best if you use very warm to hot water (don't burn yourself...dumbass) You can use soap, but shaving cream is the best. DO NOT go over the area more than two times....that is what causes razor burn. Then pat dry the area...face for men, legs (and other areas) for women, then apply body lotion while the area is still a bit damp. I know that some people do not like that feeling, but trust me, the body lotion will work better if you are still damp.

Men, face lotion for men is now available...I SUGGEST you use it!!! A good razor is a must, ladies I like the Venus for women, and men, I think the Mac 3? is the best. Oh and it is okay for women to use men'* razors (we knew this already) and men, it is okay for you to use women'* razors, now you can get back at us for dulling up your razors :P

Yeah, the mach 3 is the best. Works fine for the wife too, but she got her own.
