My lady friend remarked as I was shaving after a shower, "You're not using lather"!! Why should I?? Well, I use Bic razor for sensitive skin and lather is not a must if your beard is soft. Haven't used lather in years! Waste of money! Sometimes a hint of soap but that's it. Lather is for "girly men"!! Wuses! And electric razors SUC-probably what Jeff Gordon uses!!

Well "pal", I have a VERY togh beard and I DO use lather. MAN stuff as in Foamy by Gillette. My beard is the consistancy of 80 grit DA discs after about 14-15 hours.
Just ask Beth, she has the rug burn to prove it.

I used to hate electric razors since they never get close until my girlfriend bought me one for Christmas. It's so much easier, and I'm lazy. And anyone that can grow some REAL facial hair NEEDS shaving cream. Even with a brand new razor, I'd get instant razor burn without it when I actually use a razor.

Hmmmmm. "Girly man?" I'll have you know, all I need is a sharp rusty buck knife and a little cold creek water.

Jim Bowie? No! Nothing like that. Just thought a little levity was in order. Sorry!

Jim no I'm not Bowie

Just for the record I use Edge and Gillette. It narrows down the rash where I can't say here.

I wonder if Jim Bowie shaved with his knife? Would he have used shaving cream?

Jim Bowie probably used a straight razor and some soap applied from a cup, with a brush. Though if his razor wasn't handy on occasion, he probably could have used his knife.

I've been shaving since 15 and that is 20 years now. Whiskers as tough as wire and so dense that some of them grow together to form ones that are 3 times as tough!

I use the disposable Bic razors and don't get many shaves out of them, because it doesn't take long to get them dull as a hoe.

I buy whatever shaving cream is least expensive. Usually Colgate. Because I have not found that any cream or gel makes much difference for me.

And the whiskers are so dark that I have PERPETUAL five o'clock shadow, even if I have just shaved!

Electric razors? Forget it! For me, that is like trying to run a lawnmower over astroturf!

Me too on the electric razor. 5 minutes later and I have stubble.
Barbasol shaving cream is almost always on sale for about $.99 a can.
