Question Electric Razors

OK, who out there uses an Electric Razor? I used to, but haven't in about 3 years. I was wanting to get a new one, and wondered if anyone had any recommendations. I have a very tough beard, hell, I put a Mach 3 razor through a real workout. So, I need one that will handle tough beards. Any suggestions?

Same as you. Used to have electric but went to blade. I haven't come across a good razor yet.

Luckily I got me a lightish medium beard so I can use most razors. As for electric you got me stumped.. Never used 'em myself.

I tried electrics years ago and they couldn't do the job. Don't see how they can as there has to be a thickness of metal between the cutter and the beard. Might be better now, but I've found Shick II disposable blades the best for a fairly strong beard. The quality of the shaving cream has a big effect on the shave. The light foams like Gillette are mostly air or something and don't work as well as the denser ones. Gels are usually pretty good. Also the wetter the beard the better the shave. Try shaving after a shower and it works better. My 2c worth anyway.

For sure. There's a new thingy made from tea tree oil that's on the market now. I took it away with me and it works a treat. Cloggs up the razors big time though. Nice smooth shave was the result so you canny complain about that!

I have a electric razor my Remington that works great. I usually only shave after about 4 days because I'm lazy. I use something called "Afta Electric Shave Gel" by Mennen before hand so I don't get razor burn. It works great! I love it. I have never used a standard blade for more than a day. I have been using electric ever since I started shaving.

I am using the Norelco, and I love it alot. I like the trimmer on it if I let me beard go for too long. Also, it has little buttons on it to push to give you a squirt of shaving cream from within the shaver, so it's also convenient... When you use the button you get smoother, better results. Once your face gets used to it you can basically dry shave with it which is nice.

Thumbs up

Well, I ended up getting a Braun Flex Integral 5416. And I really like it. Even my wife made a comment the first day I used it, about how she didn't think that electrics were supposed to be able to shave that close. I am hoping after a few weeks it will get even better.
