I've forced myself to become a morning person during my last semester (the first of my PhD) for the same reasons you mentioned. I made small changes that didn't make it easy, but made it tolerable.

For one, I got a light alarm clock. This one goes on sale regularly, wait and you can get it for $40. It starts filling the room with light for 30 minutes before the back-up sound alarm goes off (which you cannot adjust on this model, but it starts quietly and gets louder). Light usually does not wake me up or keep me awake, but this thing makes your room brighter than the goddamn sun. I find that I wake up easier, probably because something something circadian rhythms sunrise something something.

Once I drag my ass out of bed, I also turn on a light therapy lamp on my desk while I eat breakfast and browse Reddit. This also makes it easier to move around in the morning, and helps with seasonal depression as well.

I'll be honest here, some of these things might be the placebo effect (which of course is still an effect, so I don't really care). My advice is to try various forms of light therapy, but to get things with a money-back guarantee and give it a few weeks to see how things are going. :)

A few weeks into doing this stuff and waking up early, I even started going to the gym in the morning (even though I hate gyms, and mornings) and I've found that it a) wakes me up, and b) makes me feel like one of those obnoxiously productive people who go to the gym in the mornings.

Edit: Still have to figure out how to drag my butt out of bed on a good time on weekends though. It seems like I either wake up at 5am or 11am. Still working on this :)

u/Gomazing · 16 pointsr/funny

I got one of these last year for 100 dollars as a gift pack that came with a 'body' trimmer and an edge razor thing or whatever. Body trimmer works miracles on my delicates.

Edit: The body trimmer is very similar to this.

u/lsof- · 15 pointsr/minimalism

I do want to point out r/onebag (even if you don't do just one bag) has a lot of good information. I've found Eagle Creek compressible packing cubes help keep bulk down on most items, namely clothing. I use a down puffy that packs to nothing and a few underlayers designed for snowboarding for colder weather. Both take up little space and accomplish climate versatility.

Eagle Creek also makes a garment sleeve but I've not used it, instead I just use wrinkle free button ups from Rohan and roll them. One great tip I use is to wear your dressier clothes while flying so you can avoid packing them all together. This takes the complication out of keeping business attire wrinkle free during the flight there and back. Be sure not to overpack things that can be picked up there for cheap, most of these fall into the toiletry department.

(I'm male so this may not be directly actionable for everyone, but materials may be useful*) I have 5 undershirts - the ones in heather gray are a poly blend, two wrinkle free button ups, one pair of outlier slim dungarees, one pair of western rise evolution pant, 7 pairs of synthetic reebok boxer briefs, 3 pairs of darn tough merino racer socks (which get washed by hand), 2x long sleeve base layer for both bottom and top (no link, off brand), down puffy (no link, discontinued), one heather gray uniqlo airism hoodie, and a cheap pair of synthetic shorts for the gym. Most of the stuff gets put into compression cubes or more rarely ranger rolled. It all packs down extremely well.

I also pack a laptop (Asus C302) and some of that dongle life (USB-C). I'm sure I'm missing more than a few things but my goal really isn't to provide a complete packout breakdown, just get some ideas out there for minimal packing/living. It's been a few months since I've packed my belongings into my 30l backpack and took a plane so my memory is a bit hazy but I could do it now if I wanted because I haven't increased/changed my belongings much since.

As a general rule I try to avoid bulky cotton stuff as much as possible and just go with synthetic or merino wool, stuff that will pack down easy. Freezer/gallon ziplock bags can make great compressible organizers if you're looking to save some money. The corners can be reinforced by clear packing tape, with the air pushed out for clothing as well. This is my razor of choice, as it's super light and you can pick up the batteries anywhere in the world.

u/Crying_Reaper · 8 pointsr/AskMen

This thing is fucking wonderful at cleaning up body hair pretty much anywhere you can reach. Also you have to try to cut yourself with it to do it. Works great and won't cut your nut sack. What more could you want? It won't make you feel like a prepubescent boy that completely lacks body hair like a razor can. It will leave stubble but I'll take that over the potential for razor burn.

u/Omw_to_Pound_Town · 8 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Hey all here's the Amazon link for anyone curious. I have not tried it on legs. It works best after a trimmer, with shorter hairs so I've been doing legs the old fashioned way. I just wanna know why I never heard of women using these! It's God's work.

u/NoAngel815 · 7 pointsr/DontFundMe

For "on the go" touch ups I would suggest a travel razor like this one. It has good reviews and I checked FakeSpot which gave the reviews an A. The one I use is an older model but this one is very similar and it's from the same brand. Honestly you can't go wrong with Philips Norelco for electric shavers in my opinion.

u/PsyrusTheGreat · 7 pointsr/amiugly

Nice, I'm liking that look on you. Some advice from a fellow head shaver

Look into getting a Wahl five star foil shaver. Use the close or comfort close head

And an Andis t-liner and you will never have to worry about razor bumps.

u/a_shrewdness_of_apes · 6 pointsr/malegrooming

He's asking about electric razors, he's not asking you to tell him how to shave.

I've used a DE and a regular cartridge razor -- but when I'm in a hurry, I use the Braun Series 5-550cc. It's decent.

Obviously it's not as clean a shave as a DE, but it's workable.

u/Luna_DeCeiver · 6 pointsr/asktransgender

I'm not trans but I use this on my upper lip every couple of days and my partner uses it every day. It helps to gently exfoliate in the shower without irritating the skin (i.e. don't scrub until your skin hurts) and don't immediately put makeup on after shaving and use the least amount of products for cleansing the skin/removing makeup at night (I use bamboo washcloths and micellar water.) I have sensitive skin and haven't had any issues outside of the occasional zit/bump.

Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body hybrid electric trimmer and shaver, QP2630/70

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns

Get a cordless foil razor and keep it with you, takes 30 seconds to do a quick touch-up and no cleanup necessary unlike bladed razors.

u/jeffro422 · 5 pointsr/malegrooming
u/CancerX · 5 pointsr/wicked_edge

I'd disagree. I know this isn't a popular opinion here and i like to use a DE and an Electric razor. I switched to a DE to get close shave and get away from irritation from cartridge razors. Electric razors produce zero irritation on my face.

However, due to time constraints and the fact that I love to sleep in, I don't always have time to go through a DE routine before work in the morning. I find that a good electric razor gives me a relatively close shave without any irritation. I like this model. (I can get a close shave in 3 minutes with an electric, but my DE routine takes about 15 minutes)

u/SuperConfused · 5 pointsr/malegrooming

That really depends on what type of shaver you are looking for. If you are looking for a beard/mustache trimmer, Braun Cruzer 6 Beard & Head Trimmer. If you are looking for a set of hair clippers, I would go with a Wahl Professional 8290.
If you are looking for a foil shaver, I would go with a Panasonic ES7035SC Triple Blade Pro-Curve Wet/Dry, or the Panasonic ES-SA40-K Pro Curve Wet/Dry Shaver If you are looking for a portable shaver for the gym or car, I like the Braun M90 Mobile Shaver. If you are looking for a rotary shaver, I would try either the Philips Norelco PT730 PowerTouch if you need a built in flip up trimmer, and a Philips Norelco PT720 PowerTouch if you do not.
Someone suggested the iStubble from Conair. I would not get this, unless you want to replace the unit after 18 months or so. I have never had luck with Conair products, and I know no cosmetologists who recommend them either. I have actually asked them when I was looking for a set of clippers. The all said Wahl Professional, unless I wanted to spend some serious money.

u/BaconIsJustOK · 4 pointsr/onebag

I have sensitive skin so I've been shaving electric as long as I can remember. I've gone through several electric razors and this one is BY FAR the best I've ever used. Waterproof, easy to clean, perfect shave, doesn't irritate, has a secondary trimmer, etc etc I could go on.

u/under-armour · 4 pointsr/CanadianForces

Alright, I'm getting everything in order for when I leave for basic next month.

On the annex kit list it says I will need a backpack. Can I use my sportsbag/dufflebag? (one with a strap and handle). I'll be using this to hold all my items while traveling.

For seasonal jacket, what qualifies? Rain jacket? For casual dress shoes I'm assuming sports shoes are ok.

Regarding the "other articles" portion:

Do you need to bring a razor with blades? Can you purchase this at the Canex? Would I be able to bring one of these? I haven't shaved without a electric razor in a while I'm assuming you can't bring one of those.
"Soap dish and toothbrush case (white)" where would I be able to purchase this?

In the wiki it says to bring your own Iron. Now that I'm looking at all the items were required to bring I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to fit all of this into my sportsbag/dufflebag. Should I be looking to purchase a bigger sports-bag so i'm able to bring all the required items?

Is there anything not on the list that you guys would recommend bringing? I asked my recruiting officer this and he said to bring a laptop so I don't get bored on the weekends. He also told me to bring snacks.

Also, will I be able to bring my fitbit (fitbit blaze) It's more like a smartwatch with a touch face and is water resistant. Will I be able to charge it for use daily?

Sorry for the long post I'm just trying to be prepared and not look like an idiot.

u/ihatethishit · 4 pointsr/minimalism

I like to keep stubble, I use an electric shaver

u/horacio08 · 4 pointsr/Blackfellas

I use this every 2 days.

that and an Andis t-liner, my brother says his bevel is good as well.

Make sure your facial skin is prepped. Steam/hot water will soften your skin and the follicles. I don't pull my skin while shaving. Shower right after. Tea tree oil to heal my face after, then a good facial moisturizer.

u/CarryOnRTW · 3 pointsr/onebag
u/GadflyShrugs · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I've been trimming for a long time, my man. I've gone through a bunch, some better than others. This one changed the game for me: It makes trimming/shaving quicker and easier for me. The way it flexes with your face gets a more even trim, but the neck is where it really has been revolutionary for me. My neck hairs go every which direction. I've always had trouble with them. Taking off the trimmer options and using the bare razor, it handles my neck better than anything I've ever used. You can also use it on its side to give you a nice edge. I don't go to bat for products much, but I love this thing!

u/TarryStool · 3 pointsr/amazon

That seems legit. Since OP asked for the "best money can buy," I'd take that make, but the super-ultra-deluxe version, which includes a cleaning system. Plus, it's $200 off.

u/WanksterPrankster · 3 pointsr/shaving

A "foil" shaver is probably the closest cutting electric shaver. Like this or this.

u/shoangore · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I use this one. You can find them used on ebay extremely cheap (I picked up two for $10/ea with free shipping) and then go to a grocery store, mine had generous coupons on both the units and the blades. I keep one in the drawer and another for travel.

I have extremely sensitive skin, and this works much better compared to several other trimmers I used in the past. Just go slow, use very gentle pressure (think of the tomato example) and use the brush to clean the blade after every use to keep everything sharp.

u/maksa · 3 pointsr/serbia

Kupio pre neku nedelju jedno ovo:

i tako konačno našao idealnu spravu za brijanje, barem onako kako ga ja zamišljam (nikad izbrijan, uvek na oko 1mm, mada sprava može i kraće). Takođe idealno za ljude sa onim hipsterskim drvosječa-da-sam-ja-a-ti-da-si-dama bradama (nemam, samo kažem).

u/Meestermills · 3 pointsr/bald
u/dinomeji · 3 pointsr/askgaybros

I use a philips oneblade for close shaving (for my neck, edges) but it does have combs you can slap on it, but that can be a hassle.

So I use a philips trimmer with a knob that lets me change trim lengths on the fly (but you'd have to take a couple seconds to diassemble it to get a semi-close clean shave) because I use different lengths for the the moustache part the cheek part and the under the jaw part.

u/crankypants15 · 3 pointsr/Frugal

Oops. I was going to give you a link to my $10 electric razor, but you wanted grooming attachments, which it does not have.

u/outpath · 3 pointsr/onebag

Try the Philips Norelco PQ208/40 Travel Electric Razor.

  • Only $15
  • Takes 2AA batteries, so no adapters.
  • Weights 3.24 oz without the batteries
  • 4.5 stars with 1,050 reviews on Amazon

And this to maintain:

If you're light skinned with black hair, I HIGHLY recommend laser hair removal. It has changed my life. I have had both professional and at home. The professional is far superior, but I've had some luck with this:

u/Atty_Clouds · 2 pointsr/shaving

> this.

Yup if you're going to use a foil shaver this is the one, when you go to a barbershop or salon this is what they will use for the bald portion of the bald fade/neck cleanup. Wife is a hairdresser at a unisex salon, and most of her coworkers have this shaver in their kit. As a side note though it wont cut if its more than stubble/short whiskers, so dont wait too long between shaves or you'll have to buzz it first then clean up with the Andis.

u/Risen_Warrior · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Philips Norelco OneBlade hybrid electric trimmer and shaver, FFP, QP2520/90

I have both this and the one already posted. This gets a much closer shave than the one posted earlier and is much smaller and easier to manuver down below.

Just make sure to use the guard or it'll cut you.

u/cdegallo · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

>That's interesting. What model of electric razor did you get? Sometimes people come around here asking for recommendations, so it would be good to know. Do you use lather with it or does it just need water?

>EDIT - Also, if you want to get rid of your old shaving gear, you can try listing it for sale on /r/shave_bazaar.

I ended up with the Panasonic ES-LA63-S Arc 4.

For 'wet' electric shaves (a misnomer really-- most need a lubricant like soap or gel), I love the Gillette Fusion ProGlide gel: Because it's fairly transparent, so you can easily see the skin. I found for even razor blade shaves, it provided better lubrication than a soap lather, but it tends to dry faster (so going in zones worked the best, or wetting a bit).

I have pretty coarse hair, but also sensitive skin on my face and neck. I think the electric just ended up irritating less than the blade. I can't even count how many different iterations of shaving materials and technique I've gone through to finally figure out what worked for me! Only took 15 years! :D

But I did enjoy the 'process' of the blade shaves for sure! I still do it from time to time.

u/skasse_ · 2 pointsr/Velo

An electric could also be a solution for you. I use mine all the time and have had it for over a year at this point with no problems. I still default to a razor if I dont use the electric for a week or so (just like you would for your face).

I use this electric razor.

Just an option

u/babygorilla90 · 2 pointsr/bald

Panasonic make good ones. The foil shavers like this you can use in the shower with shave cream. Sometimes just using them dry can cause some irritation (sometimes not) because they do provide a very close shave.

u/Acct_24 · 2 pointsr/amazon

I own this one and will never sway from this brand. I have used the most popular brands for 15 or so years, but the Panasonic beats them all.

u/numlok · 2 pointsr/GoodValue

After doing quite a bit of research, I picked up this Panasonic 5 years ago, and have been using it happily ever since. No issues, and it still gives a very smooth shave.

That said, it looks as though they've updated this model since I purchased mine, so I can't vouch specifically for the new one... If they're still making them "like they used to", I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

u/GuinessDraft · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

I got the Panasonic ES-LA93-K about 8 months ago. I love it, easily the best shaver I have ever used. Only real complaint is that the cleaning mode is DAMN loud. Amazon appears to have the best price on it.

u/camopdude · 2 pointsr/AskReddit
u/TotallyNotanOfficer · 2 pointsr/ProtectAndServe

> Panasonic Arc 4 shaver

I've got the link to the Panasonic Page for the Shaver.

Around $90-130, 4 blade cutting system, head of razor appears to pivot significantly, wet/dry applicable, is 100% washable, appears to have some form of vibrating cleaning mechanism, something about nanotechnology or some other bullshit, 30 degree inner blades to help cut hair at its source. 2 or 3 year protection plans at $9.99, and $14.99 respectively.

Going on Amazon and coming in at $90-102, with a star rating of 4.5 stars out of 5, with 69% being 5 star rated, 17% at 4 star rating, 6% at 3 star, and 4% for both 2/1 stars.

So the chance of it being very good, if we go by Amazon's ratings is an 86%, and a decent/mediocre shaver is a 14% chance. (This is out of a current 1982 reviews.)

So statistically speaking, it appears good...Might actually look at getting it myself, since I can barely handle 3 inch hair at 75 degrees without feeling hot. (I was shooting for hair down to my shoulders, Note to self: fuck that.)

u/simmiedude · 2 pointsr/army

I used this guy a lot. The blades last 24 months and cost about $40 to replace. The battery in thing lasts about 7-10 days if you leave it off the charger (assuming a 3 minute shave everyday). It doesn't cut as close as a regular razor, but it still cuts pretty damn close. It also does very well for those 4 day weekends when you don't shave. You can clean it yourself pretty easily or buy the cleaning cartridges every few months. Really no complaints.

It also has a trimmer for the underparts.

You could try this Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Men's Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Nanotech Blades, 3-Blade Cordless with Flexible Pivoting Head

u/zombeye · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

I have fairly thick, wiry facial hair. If I don't shave I can have a full-coverage beard within 5 days I'd say.

When the triple-razors came out I used them for years; they worked great but are pricey. Higher-count blades (or single-blade disposables) get clogged with my hair.

I've been using an older version of this Panasonic electric razor for over 7 years now; I highly recommend it. Oh and I use it dry exclusively (I tried wet but it was more of a hassle for me).

Of course it doesn't shave as close as a blade. But it has worked consistently for 7+ years without costing me a dime beyond the initial cost (and electricity). I did buy a replacement foil/blades a few years back.

After reading favorable comments about the old-style safety razors, I bought one of those, tried different recommended blades, etc...that thing shredded my face, every single time. It did give me a shave almost comparable to a Mach III, but took longer and made me bleed everywhere every single time.

I'll just stick with my Panasonic, get a newer model someday when the batteries give out. I can't believe they've held up this long. Nice inductive charger too.

u/F32T8 · 2 pointsr/feminineboys

My skin really dosen't like shaving either, and once I got to the point of shaving every day or looking like a bum I had to figure something out. I was always slicing myself or leaving skin irritation. I've been using this panasonic shaver for a couple years now and I think as good as it gets for me. The foils are very thin and it makes for a decent shave without all the abuse to your skin of dragging a blade over it. I usually shave dry after using a face wash to get all the oil and stuff off, but wet works too. I know it is expensive, but I am very happy I spent the money on it. I usually replace the foils about once a year, cost wise I think its cheaper than buying blades all the time anyway.

u/brunchhard · 2 pointsr/barstoolsports

You're probably not gonna get tight enough with it. If you're gonna do electric, best to bring it down, throw some electric smooth (alcohol rub) on there and then finish it with this

Otherwise, a manual razor is gonna be the way to go.

u/totalhomo · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

A trimmer using moving blades that are smaller. Razor burn (typically) isn’t an issue. Also it’s MUCH harder to cut yourself of smooth skin. It also doesn’t require shaving cream.

I’ve been using a trimmer for about a year now and haven’t cut myself.

u/wannabelaced · 2 pointsr/Gifts

My husband has been researching for a while and just asked me to order this one yesterday

u/ApparentlyAtticus · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

You look SO young without it!! (but totally cute). I'd keep it! It looks really good on you and TBH my beard didn't really start filling out until I was almost 30 lol. I picked up one of these too: Philips one blade. It made upkeep/trimming SO much easier..

p.s. Is there a sub for posters to show beard vs no beard? If not it needs to be made ASAP.

u/JDburner · 2 pointsr/sexover30

I use this:

It's impossible to nick your skin with it, works great down under, no itching from it either and it works fast because u don't need to be careful, like with a real blade.

u/gar187er · 2 pointsr/AskMen

get a pre shave scrub.....and good shaving cream (not foam or gel).....and post shave lotion.

take a shower, do your hair, whatever, let the steam open your pores,

Hopefully you own a wet shaver, and a good one at that.....

i own the Panny LA93. ITS AWESOME.

Anyway, tehn you use the scrub, rinse off, then light lather of shave cream, and shave. When done, finish up in the shower. Once you get out, pat dry your face, and apply lotion immediately!

Also you look like you have a few breakouts on your face. could be related to your shaving irritation...

I started with Neutrogena Shave stuff, cause it was cheap, but then I switched to Every Man Jack, and love it....not too pricey either. Get it online or at Target




u/spudlywhudly · 2 pointsr/shaving

u/statikuz · 2 pointsr/AskReddit
u/naval_person · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

Perhaps the most sensible thing to do is to stop using the term "wetshaving" since it's too all-inclusive. All of the following are wetshaving:

  • Straight razor shaving with canned Foamy shave cream

  • Bic disposable single-blade plastic razor shaving with canned Edge gel

  • Gillette Fusion Power (electric vibrator) razor shaving with Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood, bowl lathered with a badger brush

  • Merkur Slant razor with Feather DE blade, shaving with water and Shave Secret shave oil from Walmart

  • Panasonic wet-dry electric razor shaving (example) in the shower (under the water spray) using hair shampoo as lather

    IMHO too many people incorrectly equate "wetshaving" with "DE or Straight shaving using brush-and-bowl lather from specialty shave soaps". If there's water and there's shaving, it's wetshaving.

I used to have a lot of issues with bumps/in grown hairs and was cutting my face daily. I'm a 30 year old grown ass man and nothing I did seemed to help. To make it worse I've always worked for SNCOs who cry about me not shaving twice a day.

Then I purchased a one blade. It has been an amazing switch. I 100% have to worry about it twice a day now as this is not actually a razor but it gets me close enough that no one complains.

Look into that.

u/JohnnyNintendo · 2 pointsr/malegrooming

lemme check.

99.5% Sure its this one

Panasonic Arc5 Electric Razor, Men's 5-Blade Cordless with Shave Sensor Technology and Wet/Dry Convenience, ES-LV65-S


Slightly pricey.. little over 120. But razors can go for 300+

u/bangbangthreehunna · 2 pointsr/FDNY

I'm in the same boat, but for a PD academy. I've never been a daily shaver and get marks. I used this buzzer when I shaved like every other day and enjoyed it. Also started to use after shave to reduce irritation. Waking up early, shaving and making sure its clean is going to be tough for me.

u/ImStillJordan · 2 pointsr/MtF

Instead of outright shaving, use a trimmer and go gradually. Start with legs and arms or chest and just start with a barrier on the trimmer to a level 5 or whatever you feel comfortable with. This will help get some of the body hair gone, but also gives you a path to clear more off your body over time by shifting that trim barrier level shorter and shorter.

I really like the Norelco OneBlade for this. If you get their body + face package, the lowest barrier can really get it pretty close to the skin. Norelco OneBlade on Amazon


Another option entirely, again that I would recommend with a trimmer first that people won't notice is hair around your pubic area.

u/InfiniteZr0 · 2 pointsr/malegrooming

I got this 3 years ago. Never shave, just trim with the sensitive clipon. It ends up getting a close cut but not as close as you would shaving, so I've never had a problem with things like ingrown hairs or pimples.
E: Oh wow. It's $67. Don't get it for that price. I got it for like $40 back then. Probably be a good idea to shop around.

u/mikkylock · 2 pointsr/ADHD

Light therapy helps me alot. Otherwise I'll sleep 10-12 hours a day, heh. Do it every morning at the same time, for 15-20 mins.

u/kazo0 · 2 pointsr/shaving

The OneBlade. Fantastic

u/mrkoshka710 · 2 pointsr/beauty

I have had the same reaction to having bikini waxes. I expected less irritation than shaving and got more. I used to work at a spa that had a tea tree post wax oil that helped. I was also taught to "pre oil" to protect the skin, but that seemed to help more with pain than irritation. I would definitely use hard wax on coarse hair in a sensitive area.

If you're still not satisfied with waxing, I've found the least amount of irritation ever by using trimmers over coarse hair before a balding shaver. It gets the hair razor smooth and if you go back over it everyday you can keep it that way for a while.

u/daeatenone · 1 pointr/onebag

I picked one of these almost 5 years ago @ a drug store and damn thing won't die (I have the older model, this one looks better). It's a foil-style saver that's waterproof and takes 2 AAA batteries. It's best if you shave every day since it's awful for longer facial hair. That said, it's relatively compact, really durable, doesn't require oil/cream and gets the job done well enough while traveling. I have not had to do anything but replace the batteries and rinse it out every now and then since 2012.

u/elosaur · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

This, Andis Profoil, the barbers use this. This gets a close enough shave for me that's much quicker than using a razor.

u/buck0128 · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

Don’t listen to these other comments!!!
I used to have AWFUL skin from using shaving gel / Gillette razors. I now have flawlessly smooth skin.

I use this electric trimmer on my neck/ face :

And sometimes I use this trimmer on my face (as long as I don’t go too aggressive I don’t get bumps):

That is IT. Don’t shave when your skin is wet / don’t use shaving cream. That gives you too close of a shave, thus leading to bumps. Always shave DRY.

I was a very severe case of bumps and the combo above has worked perfectly

Edit: with the second electric shaver, you can even shave over existing bumps and they won’t bleed. It gives you as close of a shave as a manual razor but it will not leave a rash. Don’t use it on your neck if that’s a problem area

For $10usd this works fine. I can easily replace the batteries, and I use rechargeable batteries. And if I lose it or drop it and break it, I just get another one.

All the shaver types and brands I have tried break just as easily as the next. And the straight foils work best for me as my hair on my faces faces many directions.

u/thaidavid · 1 pointr/funny

Use a electric shaver.. trust me if you haven't try it.. It is amazing. The easiest minute ever.. I can't believe it took me this long to try it... You can find these cheaper but I use this and it is amazing. I find myself shaving more often than before.. When I didn't have one I'd grow one out or shave once a month or so. Now I'd shave at least every other day.

u/ssnakeggirl · 1 pointr/sex

This is the one I use. I feel awkward because it is so loud - I keep thinking it sounds like a loud vibrator, and since I'm a woman everyone expects me to have a vibrator and no one expects me to have an electric shaver. All things considered though it is a good model and I wouldn't be willing to pay significantly more money for something quieter.

u/goddamnsam · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

should have posted that earlier, here it is. I admittedly cheaped out on it a little, but the hairs it gets it gets really well, it's just the few it cant.

u/Unibrow · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Life happens, alarms fail, and schedules are cut short.
I use one of these when I'm forced to shave at stop lights.
I do everything in my power to make sure this never happens though.

/ I like the fact that it runs on AA batteries since I always have a fresh set nearby.

u/WhenTheBeatKICK · 1 pointr/malegrooming

looks like a re-branded version of the micro touch solo i got at walmart:

spoiler alert, it's a piece of shit and i wouldnt recommend it

u/dark_delight · 1 pointr/Blackfellas

The Panasonic Arc 4 is my go to. I've had great smooth shaves with no irritation when I was using it. Now I'm on month 2 of growing my beard out.

Very well made piece of kit.

u/redaftrp · 1 pointr/AirForce

I keep one of these in my glove box and one in my desk drawer, just in case I forget to shave before PT in the morning, or if my face feels rough halfway through the day.

theres a phillips one I call the nugget and leave it in my foul weather jacket to shave when master chief complains my face looks rough, runs off AA which can always be found in the RIMR
lasted 3+ years at sea

u/SmallFut · 1 pointr/Mohawks

It only cuts the stubble so if you use it every 5 days it'll never cut the actual mohawk

u/neoookami · 1 pointr/bald

A foil shaver can get you pretty close. I use a Panasonic Arc4 and it does the job pretty well, and much harder to accidentally nick myself. It's water proof so I just use it in the shower every other day and keep myself fairly smooth.

u/natalienaught · 1 pointr/girlschool

I am full time, and have more hair than I want to talk about (thankfully, the electrolysis fairies are helping with that long term 😊). In the meantime, I've tried a lot of stuff, and this razor is a godsend for routine use on big areas. It works great dry, and is ridiculously gentle and forgiving, even when you're moving fast, (I shave everything with it). Also the battery lasts a long time, and it charges fully in a few minutes. Hope that helps!

u/iowahawkeyes95 · 1 pointr/Gifts

This is an incredible deal on a really good electric razor. Same price at Best Buy right now too:

u/dwaynebank · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I want to get a nice electric razer. I've been looking at the ES-LV65-S but saw it's gone on sale for the past for around $100. Any idea when it'll go on sale again? Should I just pull the trigger?

u/cute_polarbear · 1 pointr/AskMen

electric. once in the morning before work and once at night before bed. 30 seconds each time. cheap, quick, easy to get replacement blade. if it breaks (haven't so far, 3 years+), just get another one. Used to shave with standard razor, much more time consuming and i tend to get ingrown hair or irritated hair follicle, occasionally). mentioned by OP, electric razor tend to be harsher on skin. So I spend money on good facial moisturizer (need to do that anyway to maintain good skin).

u/pokerdot · 1 pointr/bald

Any opinion on this?

I didnt mention it in the original post, I'm looking for a razor to pretty much get rid of stubble every couple days.

u/BreezyOG · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

same price for students. Too bad I already bought a shitty gillete electric razor for 20 bucks. Definitely would've preferred this one

u/liz_teria · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Have you tried the Philips/Norelco One Blade? There’s a face & body model that may work for you. They don’t really scrape the skin, so it may work well considering your sensitivity. Philips/Norelco One Blade

u/Horace__Wimp · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Braun MobileShave M-90 gets a lot of love on this group. Outperforms my $150 Panasonic.

u/truth_hertz · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

This one is like my husband's -

There are "recipes" online to make your own solution so you won't have to buy their cleaning tab things.

u/outfromtheashes · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

When I was a Mormon missionary, I had to shave daily. I kept this in the car in case I forgot in the morning or didn't have time.

u/Ownhouse · 1 pointr/bald

I've used an Andis Profoil Lithium shaver for the past year and I like it a lot. Easy maintenance and gets me smooth.

u/UseKnowledge · 1 pointr/pics


I'm really tempted to try this

as it's on sale right now and I heard it works for people who have really strange facial hair like me.

Just don't know if it's worth the risk.

u/resiroth · 1 pointr/pics is pretty good value at $65, there are also the braun shavers but I don't know much about them.

u/anonthinker · 1 pointr/AskRedditAfterDark

The Phillips One Blade system does an amazing job mowing off body hair without cutting hair below the surface of the skin, which leads to rashes.

u/sheepshizzle · 1 pointr/malegrooming

It is definitely the Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body. The attachments work like a charm. It's really fast and safe. There is basically no way to cut yourself unless you are extremely careless while shaving.

u/AlanTheGent · 1 pointr/Barber

I use the Andis shaver personally. They have two independent heads on them vs the Whal which has two as well but they move together and not independently.

u/recordman94 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Holy moly, are you (and /u/PastelWard and /u/dylandblue ) talking about about this thing? It's only $35 Canadian. I'm guessing you aren't referring to the face + body one?

I did have two quick questions for you guys:

  1. How long did a blade last? The replacement heads say 3 blades last up to 12 moths, does that sound right?

  2. Did you guys have a shaving cream + after shave you would recommend especially for someone on a skincare routine? Will any sensitive shaving cream/after shave combo work?

u/ultraviolenc · 1 pointr/gardening

Thanks--ended up buying a small S.A.D. lamp to help with the effects of working in a dark room. What does this open me up to--will I be able to grow any herbs?

u/stagehog81 · 1 pointr/asktransgender

I use a Philips Norelco OneBlade and just make sure that I run it several times across all areas of my back as best I can.

u/scottyloots · 1 pointr/bald

i just bought this and i LOVE it. gets suuper close and holds a great charge:
Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Electric Razor for Men, 4-Blade Cordless Shaver, Wet-Dry with Linear Motor and Flexible Pivoting Shaver Head

u/jumpingcorgi · 1 pointr/gaybros

I've found the Norelco OneBlade to be amazing for body hair trimming. It gets very close and I don't have to deal with the annoyances of traditional razors.

u/Exomianne · 1 pointr/medicalschool

I ended up getting the Sun Touch Plus, and my friend got the more portable Circadian Optics, and I visited a school that has a Northern Lights one that looks like a lamp, but that brand also sells a bunch of (relatively large) ones.

3 guesses for what state I'm in x.x

u/aagee · 1 pointr/AskReddit

This here Panasonic ES8103S Pro Curve is quite good at $69.99. Use it wet or dry. Great reviews. I got one myself.

u/melanthius · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

I used the "expensive refill" type of razor for at least 12 years... when I finally got a serious job I wanted to save some time in the mornings, so I bought one of these

It's been great to me. It takes some experience and trial and error to get it to work perfectly with your beard (probably give it 3 weeks). Now that I've been using it for 3 years, I get an extremely close shave in about 2 minutes with zero pain and zero cuts.

The blades that come with the thing are supposed to last 1 year. I finally switched the blades after 3 years and I don't think it was even really necessary. I would *never* go back to a blade type razor.

What I found to work the best for me, although it sounds counter intuitive, was to put nothing on my face while shaving with this shaver. Just the oil from my face is actually the perfect lubricant. Other soaps, lathers, water, etc. all produced a worse shave. Then I wash my face after shaving and good to go. Smooth as an expensive razor and I stopped getting ingrown hairs in my face as well.

u/R_FN_S1R1US · 1 pointr/army

Anyone know if battery operated shavers are allowed at BCT ? I can’t shave with a manual razor for shit and would prefer to not fuck over my platoon with my stubble

This is the one I was thinking about getting

u/neoluke6 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I really enjoy the Philips OneBlade ($35). It's a relatively inexpensive rechargeable electric shaver that has given me the closest shave than any other electric shaver I've tried. It's not a skin close shave like you might get from a razor mind you, but it does the job well enough to keep up a professional appearance for me.

While normally razors leave my skin irritated, I recently tried Gillette SkinGuard ($10) and it surprisingly doesn't leaves me with almost zero irritation. I don't know if this applies or will help but the tip that has really cut down irritation for me when using a razor was to put less pressure on the skin, essentially having it just lightly glide across the skin.

u/dagbrown · 1 pointr/OneY

I admire your abuse of the English language.

If you don't like being a hairy monster, I don't have any issue with you doing something about it. This is a perfectly reasonable tool to use.

u/FatHatCatBatSat · 1 pointr/bald

I clean it thoroughly each time, otherwise no special tricks to it. If you are really itching for an electric, I hear good things about the Wahl shaver a lot of barbershops use, but I have never tried it myself.

u/Its_A_Nice_Day · 1 pointr/shaving

I got the oneblade and found it to be a huge waste of money. Wish I got a refund but I wasn't able to send it back at the time.

There must be a ton of marketing and astroturfing behind it because those blades only lasted me a shave or 2 and the shaves themselves were of very poor quality.

The device is extremely cheaply made. The tip of mine where the blade attaches broke after only a few weeks.

After doing some real serious searching and ignoring the gimmicks, I got an Andi's Profoil trimmer, Wahl also makes a similar product. I use it for when I dont have time to wet shave, or if I'm not looking for a close shave.

They also make a T-bar trimmer which some people prefer for an almost-skin close trim.

Also, if you are looking for something to trim your privates with, get a norelco bodygroomer which was specifically made for that purpose. They also have ones you can double as bear trimmers with detachable lengths.

u/VirtualLife76 · 1 pointr/onebagging

I bought this:
It's not perfect, but at least I don't have to buy a new one at each location. Prefer a rechargeable one, but this was the best weight ratio I could find. Close enough shave that I can't complain too much, plus it seems to be the standard reddit answer.

u/Aqua-Tech · 1 pointr/backpacking

Good question! I prefer electric as well. I don't have a travel one but I'd like to get one. I'll look around and am looking forward to other replies.


Edit2: Strongly considering this guy.

u/Impendingconfetti · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Seconding the Panasonic below me, I have to be clean shaven for work every day and this is a game changer.

u/ImAGrizzlyBear · 1 pointr/bicycletouring

I would advise letting it go, but if you must use something this is the one I've used for years.

u/avensvvvvv · 1 pointr/malegrooming

I don't know about Parkinson in particular, but the ES-LV65-S is the best electric shaver in the market, hands down.

u/Anon_GA · 1 pointr/malegrooming

The black soap is probably making it worse. It's very drying.

You can have oily skin or you can have dehydrated skin. Dehydrated skin is caused by the disruption of your natural moisture barrier (giggity) by using harsh products that strip the natural oils from your skin. This causes your skin to freak out and overproduce more oil to compensate and you get stuck in this endless loop of face suckage. Oily skin is just oily.

You most definitely need to moisturize (everyone does no matter their skin type) and you most definitely need the sunscreen every day sun, rain, snow, earthquake, etc. It's the best thing you can do to prevent Melanoma and aging. There are so many out there that you should do some research and find out what your skin type is and then explore recommended products. Not everything works for everyone. It's some trial and error.

As for the shaving, I've always gotten really bad razor bumps and ingrown hairs no matter what I try. Most people around here hate them (/r/wicked_edge doesn't like them) but it has made a 110% improvement for me. I use this one because it's got an alcohol solution in the tank and sanitizes it after each use which also helps prevent bacteria transfer on a clean face.

Edit: An underscore

u/dacoinminster · 1 pointr/Frugal

Norelco-style (with the round foils) never worked well for me, due to some of the absurdly-thick hairs on my chin.

I can't let this thread pass without plugging the Panasonic electric shaver I've been using for a few years now which can chew through those logs without pinching me:

If you always thought your beard was too thick to use electric, I suggest you give that one a try.

u/harsesus · 0 pointsr/WTF

Suggestion - keep this in your bag.

u/Pool_Guy · 0 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I use this, I shave once a week roughly, I have a thick beard and it can deal with it no problem. Can't speak to the longevity of it thus far as it's new on the market, but it works great on any length hair and gets pretty damn close, I've had to charge it once so far and I shave once/week since Christmas.

u/kindall · 0 pointsr/malelifestyle

I've always been most pleased by Panasonic shavers. Amazon has this one for about $115 after applying their $20 coupon (retail is $300).
