Whilst I know they make the baby jesus cry; wet shaving have been banned from my work place due to lazy arse’s being unable to clean up after themselves. Looks like I’ll need an electric shaver I can use in the shower.Posted 5 years ago
Now my distant memory of electric shavers is they are toss, but whilst in Boot’s yesterday, there seemed to be quite a lot of technical looking things with 50% off.
So has anyone got an recommendations? Do the one where you use shaving foam/ gel make any difference? Any advice on electric shavers gratefully recieved.toys19Member
I have a waterproof rechargeable phillips jobby, I find in the shower or if my beard is wet it is crap, works best dry. So use it not in the bathroom or at another time other than showering. Still shit though compared to a wet shave even with a blunt and rusty lawnmower blade. It takes a month or two for your face to get used to it, then its better, I just use it to keep the weeds down until I need to have a proper shave for wedding/church/courtappearance/encounterwithsexualpartner.Posted 5 years agoandylMember
just get something like this and take it in the shower with you?
Other than that Braun electric shavers are often shower proof. But you will still want a mirror tbh to save any mess ups.Posted 5 years agobrakesMember
Expensive Braun one here but without the gimmicks.Posted 5 years ago
I have a beard like the bastard offspring of Captain Haddock and a Wookie and it does very well, but then I’ve been shaving with an electric since I was a teenager (20 years) so my face is used to it.
Electric shaving with a wet face or after a shower just doesn’t work.algarvebairnMember
Slightly O/T: Has anybody used a leccy razor for shaving their bonce?I’m a baldy and clipper it down with no gauge. So a number zero if you like. I’d still like it a bit shorter but not quite ready for the full Yul Brinner. I though maybe a leccy razor might be a good middle ground. Any experiences?Posted 5 years agodave_rudabarMember
I use two – a Braun Series 5 which can more comfortably shave closer and a rotary phillishave (blue, can be used in shower) which I used if my stubble’s long as the braun isn’t great on that.
The Phillishave is rough & scrubs my neck/causes bumps, so I only use it for a quick go-over.
The Braun isn’t great TBH, my old Remington sensitive one was better.
The Clean & Renew cleaner/charger thingy does seem to keep it working at its best though.
Unfortunately you may have to try a couple before you find the best one for you.Posted 5 years agotoys19Member

Okay here is the next question then. Electric shaver after shower- should I be using somesort of shave oil or similar electric shave potion to help things along or just all dry?
Just don’t do it after the shower, do it before or at some other time, wet or damp skin does not work with my electric..Posted 5 years agoigrfMember
I’ve chased the Holy Grail all my adult life, back from the days when I’d electric shave in the car late on the way to work.
The Best I found sadly is no more, funnily enough I was eyeing it this very morning as my most expensive razor money could buy at the time, a Phillips all singing dancing rotary thing was busy boring the hair from my face.
It was a Panasonic, a veritable brute of an electric razor so powerful it eventually shaved itself to pieces and then began to draw blood, which it still does on the odd occasion I fire it back up just to feel the sensation of a chain saw against weekend three day growth.
I shall upon my return home look up the relevant model numbers, but in the meanwhile look forward with eager interest to other recommendations (purlease not Braun next doors pussy has more lick) 😉Posted 5 years ago
