I like those shaving brushes - does he have website where I can order one?

My tip for wet shaving is to get a REALLY good quality shaving creme and a good badger hair brush - whip that lather up and put it onto your face AFTER hot-towel or washing your face with as hot a water as you can stand - soften up your beard basically - then shave TWICE - once left-to-right - the other right-to-left ...

i only use those 4 and 5 blade razors with the replaceable cartridges. i tried the disposable 4 blades and those were awful on my face and only lasts for a few shaves. i only use those remaining disposables in the shower for my pits now. being asian, one of those blade cartridges lasts for 6 months even with daily use and never a nick.

Oscar, with the hair/dust from razor dropping everywhere do you think that applies to all electric shavers or yours in particular?
IMO, it is better to get a cheaper one and change the head (cutter & grill) 2-3x / year. It is expensive on my Braun 8995 but shaving quality improves dramatically each time. I have being using it for 4-5 years,

best electric razor

From my experience you can't go wrong with braun products, especially shaving products. I've got a braun series 5 and I've had it for about a year and it still works like it's brand new. I found this site http://www.*******.com/best-men-s-el...shaver-for-men that gives some reviews and ideas for different brands. I think some people can get away with the cheap $20 or $30 electric razors but my facial hair is thick and my face is sensitive so I needed something that was high quality. Braun all the way.
