    My 13 year old son has a bit of top lip fuzz going on which he would like to remove. My first razor was an electric one but I don’t think he needs acproper one yet as he’ll probably only ‘shave’ once a month. I’m thinking a good quality razor with disposable blades would be good, gilette fusion type thing which does give a very smooth and safe shave Any thoughts.

    Don’t you have a/several razors?

    King of Shaves Azor is very good, IMO.

    this is going to start another double edge razor topic!

    Think I got rid of the fuzz with a Gillette Sensor. I bought my nephew [same age] a Wilkinson Sword Hydro for the same reason – got rid of the caterpillar fine but the fusion is a ‘good’ razor too

    Gilette Mach 3 and King of Shaves menthol oil for me.

    Not get carried away with all the marketing rubbish, ive tried some of the more recent 3 x more expensive razors and they tend to be worse!

    Dont you use a shavor yourself ??

    Even though I am a DE shaver I would not recommend a DE razor for a 13 year old.

    That could end up very messy.

    given the state of my face after my first time I wouldn’t either!

    Yes I do have a razor but ii really think he’d rather have his own. They don’t cost much and I think that’s the right thing to do.

    And I have intention of letting him anywhere near an open blade.

    mach3 did me fine for years… now i’m so manly i use a hedge trimmer 4 times a day

    What next for pointless forum topics?

    What tissue should I wipe my arse on?

    As someone who only needs to shave about once a week, I’d recommend disposables. Gillette etc. all do their decent multi blade models in disposable form and work out as cheap as replacement heads. I probably buy one pack a year.

    Boots have a few good deals on Mach3 type disposables or a sensor excel which comes with 3 blades. Asda were doing a deal on Fusion and I think as a box set too if he needs that many blades

    As GW said does he need a proper razor – my blades were more likely to go rusty than blunt

    disposables – i like gilette ones. small packet as the blades seem to blunt if left too long.

    Why did you click on it then ya fanny?

    Let’s have a look at your threads shall we, oh yeh much better. Not.

    I was curious as to the content of the thread – I expected it to be something more amusing than actually asking what razor someone should use.

    Point taken re. my topics but, in my defence, I was actually trying to find out information on subjects where a specialist knowledge is required. Surely any razor is pretty much the same as the next.

    oh, that’ll have the niche razor-ists in a tizzy!

    Probably.

    The only difference I really find of one razor over the next is how comfortable it feels in my hand over the next. I think mine is a Mach 2

    +1 King of Shaves Azor.

    my mach3 blades would last a year easily if i remembered to rinse them and shake them dry after use! and always worked out cheaper to buy a new razor and blade set then a new pack of blades as mach3’s were pretty much always on offer somewhere 😀

    -1 KoS Azor – I tried one and found that while it certainly didn’t irritate my skin, that was largely because it didn’t actually shave remotely closely. Back to my Mach 3 which with KoS shaving oil (no foam or any other stuff) has stopped my shaving rash dead.

    Are you really stupid or just pretending?

    You decide

    As someone who only needs to shave about once a week, I’d recommend disposables

    As someone who is fond of his skin being attached to his face rather than floating round in a bloody puddle in front of me, I’d not recommend disposables.

    Get him a Sensor, he’ll feel all growed up.

    You can get some pretty decent disposables. If you can’t use a disposable safely you probably shouldn’t be allowed sharp cutlery either. 😆

    To be fair, you may be right. My First Razor was a Bic Orange (for sensitive skin!) and I cut myself to ribbons. Perhaps the Gillette / WS ones are better?

    I wouldn’t even consider disposables, any I’ve tried have been crap compared to non-disposables.

    tesco do a decent own brand disposable with a button for clearing the fluff hair out from between the blades. also has a grippy handle.
    +1 on the sensor excel as well.

    I wouldnt buy disposable even the good ones are not half as good as a proper one.

    Your crap when you start shaving and cut yourself enough, get a reasonable shaver and least you wont cut yourself quite as much.

    I think all these razor threads are amazing proof of the success of the razor advertising industry.

    It seems the prevailing thought is ‘better’ razor the more manly and awesome you must be. Especially if you add a little danger by using a ancient design with no safety features.

    And all this overpowering the fact that you are removing your beard so as to look more like a young boy…

    So where are all these adverts for the ancient razor designs then glenh?

    So the adverts are so successful that the prevailing thought is you’re better not using the advertised product? how does that work then?

    I tried the King of Shaves one and thought it was terrible.
    Went back to the Mach3 that I’ve been using for years. I think Gillete hit the sweetspot with the Mach3 and what has come since is really gimmicky – vibrator razor anyone?

    vibrator razor anyone?

    well, like bruneep said – shaving and …
