Just for curiousity, how often do you shave?

09-16-2009, 09:35 AM
Every other day.

09-16-2009, 09:36 AM
7 days a week, no matter what I'm doing.
Unless I'm on my back sick, which is uncommonly rare.

09-16-2009, 09:36 AM
At least once a day. I don't feel awake and clean if I don't shave.

09-16-2009, 09:38 AM

09-16-2009, 09:39 AM
Every other day.

09-16-2009, 09:43 AM
Once a day and I take friday and saturday off, I shave the night before work. Work is just way to anal to not shave.

09-16-2009, 09:53 AM
5-7 days a week, sometimes I will take a saturday or/and sunday off

Lately, every night. There is something about the solace and luxuriant feel of a quiet house and a hot lather.

But, when I am growing in facial hair (mostache etc), I let the beard sit for a full week before styling.

09-16-2009, 10:44 AM
Mon-saturday and i take sunday off unless i am told to shave if we are off any where.

09-16-2009, 10:56 AM
Daily. If there's an event on Friday or Saturday night where I need to look presentable I'll do a 1-2 pass shave in the AM and another 1-2 passes in the PM to ensure that I'm well groomed. That's the only exception to my routine.

09-16-2009, 10:59 AM
Daily with an occasional Sat off for good behavior.:w00t:

09-16-2009, 10:59 AM
Every morning.

Hey Mr. Question Guy. You've got to start some of these with your answers. :smile:

Now I shave daily. When I first started and there were a couple of rough shaves, I'd take a day or two off to let my face recover. But now that this is no longer an issue, I shave every day.

09-16-2009, 11:02 AM
every day, skipping on Saturday to give the face a rest.

09-16-2009, 11:02 AM
Usually every 2nd or 3rd day. I'm retired. :biggrin: :tongue: :rolleyes: :001_rolle :thumbup1::001_tt2::quickdraw:shaving:

09-16-2009, 11:03 AM
Every weekday, for sure ... I usually end up skipping a day on the weekends.

09-16-2009, 11:06 AM

Occasionally I'll skip a Sunday but then I feel kind of anxious and unhappy all day.

(I won't ever skip my Monday morning shave, so if I haven't shaved by 11 a.m. or so on a Sunday I'll skip the day rather than mess with Monday. It's all very complicated.)

09-16-2009, 11:08 AM
Monday thru Friday, take weekends off to give the face a break.

09-16-2009, 11:17 AM
Everyday, skip maybe one day a month.

09-16-2009, 11:29 AM
Mostly daily. Every once in a while it'll be a day & a half, then skip a day. Or possibly Morning quick, then evening well, then skip the next day.

Almost every weekday (unless I oversleep), most Saturdays. I will usually take Sunday off.

09-16-2009, 11:35 AM
I don't shave every other day :laugh:

09-16-2009, 11:41 AM
Since I have started wet shaving w/a DE, everyday, regardless. Previously, only every other day even though I have a heavy beard. I just hated it so much. In just a few weeks it has become a habit. This past Saturday, I didn't shave until the evening, and felt weird and irritable.

09-16-2009, 11:49 AM
Daily with an occasional day or two off but 99% 7 days a week!


09-16-2009, 11:51 AM
I'm up to once a week.

5-7 days a week, sometimes I will take a saturday or/and sunday off

What he said.

09-16-2009, 12:59 PM
I shave nearly everyday but when I get a BBS shave I have to skip a day or two because I destroy those little hairs and they need time to fight back - plus I dont shave until i can feel a even rough sensation by touch all over my face/where hair grows, and like many on here I feel my face often throughout the day - after hand washing.

:biggrin1: Hmmm...alright...fair enough.

Every Sunday morning, I wake up and tell myself (and my wife) "Starting today, I'm going to make sure to shave every single morning. Every...single...morning". My wife usually says "Yeah...right...we'll see about that!". Unfortunately, she's usually right. I shave on Sunday morning before church, then I shave on Monday morning, and then I usually give up come Tuesday and then start all over again the following Sunday. I really do want to try to commit to every single day though. I know I can...it's just a matter of getting off my butt and doing it.

09-16-2009, 01:07 PM
Every S,M,T (those are the days I work) the other 4 days it's hit or miss, depends on if we are going out or not.

09-16-2009, 01:11 PM
On Monday through Friday I shave in the morning after showering. On Saturday I generally shave in the afternoon so I am well groomed when the wife and I go out. On Sunday I do not shave if I can help it, but if we are going out I will shave.

09-16-2009, 01:19 PM
6 morning shaves a week, and I don't like the feeling of the 7th day, but my skin requires the break.

Every Day. Look forward to it.


09-16-2009, 01:44 PM
My beard happens to be sparse and slow-growing, which used to be a blessing in the days that I used cartridge razors.

Nowadays, though, I'm eager to shave as often as possible.

I've figured out that if I don't wait three days between shaves, the shave I get is very rough and irritating. So I've basically restricted myself to shaving once every three days.

Next shave is scheduled for tomorrow night!

09-16-2009, 02:03 PM
I only shave on days that end in the letter Y.

09-16-2009, 02:06 PM
Every single day. Even on my birthday I still shave. I like looking sharp.

If I shave in the morning, and am about to go on a date, dinner, or just out to have some fun in the evening I have to shave once more. My beard DOES grow that fast.

Man, I couldn't imagine having to shave twice on a Saturday...once when I wake up and once before I get ready to go clubbin' with my wife or something. That's why if I'm going out on a Saturday night, I shave at, like, 4 p.m., because if I shaved on Saturday morning at 7 a.m., then, yeah, I would be having 5 o'clock shadow by the time I arrived at the club at 10.

09-16-2009, 02:53 PM
The wife is with her family for a while and I'm on holiday, so I haven't shaved for six days and won't for another ten or so. Feels interesting so far, in half a decade I've never had more than the usual three-day stubble.

In work times I shave every day.

09-16-2009, 03:03 PM
Every day leaving one day off a week for rest usually Sunday. Prior to DE shaves using a Fusion I shaved every other day

09-16-2009, 03:10 PM
Daily for me. Every morning during the week. Usually before I go out at night on weekends.

09-16-2009, 03:28 PM
I only shave on days that end in the letter Y.
ROTFLOL! Thanks, I needed that. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

09-16-2009, 04:27 PM
I usually shave every other day.

09-16-2009, 04:31 PM
Every day without fail

09-16-2009, 04:35 PM
Under most circumstances, every other day. Due to the fact I get a haircut every two weeks, I do not shave that week (mostly to fix my beard being I sport a chinstrap.)

09-16-2009, 04:40 PM
In about 15 minutes...

09-16-2009, 05:30 PM
I shave every day , otherwise i feel dirty.

09-16-2009, 06:21 PM
every other day, mainly to give my face time to heal before the next shave. but, if I don't shave after the 2nd day I start to feel like a bum. had a damn good shave tonight with my gillette tech and newly acquired Tabac

09-16-2009, 06:23 PM
At least once a day. I don't feel awake and clean if I don't shave.


09-16-2009, 06:26 PM
I shave daily, but occasionally skip a day. In a month, I would say I shave 27 out of 30 days, or 90% of the time.

09-16-2009, 06:28 PM
Everyday. I love weekend shaves because I there is no time pressure to get to work. It just relax, savor the scents and the warm lather and enjoy the shave time.

09-16-2009, 06:37 PM
Every day. It just isn't done to leave the house unshaven.

09-16-2009, 06:43 PM
Every other day.

09-16-2009, 10:36 PM
Mon-Fri, most of the time, Sat/Sun only for a good reason!

09-17-2009, 04:19 AM

Unless I'm out camping for the weekend, or on vacation.

09-17-2009, 05:17 AM
I'd say probably 28 out of 30 days.

I've only been DE shaving for a week, but I've shaved everyday. I could definitely get away with every other day, but it just feels so damn good. I usually follow the shaves with an hour or two of face stroking.

09-17-2009, 07:11 AM
every other day, can live with the 1 day of stubble (my beard is blondish brown) unless there is something that I need to be clean shaven for.

Every day to day-and-a-half. I've switched to shaving in the evenings when possible. As stated above, a quiet house in the evening adds to the relaxation and luxury of it all.
Sometimes I'll wait until the morning, but I usually end up regretting it.

09-17-2009, 08:59 AM
Every weekday and most Saturdays unless my wife remembers to ask me not to shave. :wink:
I skip every Sunday.

09-17-2009, 09:45 AM
Uhhhh maybe every week or ten days, but maybe my new DE will change all that. I do tune up my eyes, ears, nose, lower neck, and cheeks between my eyes and beard line on a daily basis. The horseshoe with an unconnected goatee gets clipper trimmed every few weeks.

09-17-2009, 01:32 PM
Every day, in the morning.... and if I go out in the evening, again a full shave...:em2300:


09-17-2009, 03:03 PM
Three times a week in the evening usually; on tuesday (extended version because the kids are asleep and the wife is out), thursday or friday and saturday or sunday.

09-17-2009, 03:32 PM
Every morning preparing for work. I let my face recover on my days off.

Mr. Beaver
09-18-2009, 12:31 AM
Average: 2-3 times a week

Max: every other day, but I usually reduce down to only 2 passes (my normal shave is 3 passes)

I might be able to handle every day, but then I'd definitely have to only do 2 passes.

09-18-2009, 05:43 AM
I shave 3 times a week. I am a choir director at church so I shave on Sunday and Wednesday to look good for church and then I shave on Friday just keep things looking neat.

09-18-2009, 05:48 AM
Im not even working at the moment and yet I shave every morning cos I enjoy it so much.

09-18-2009, 06:40 AM
Every day, at least 6 days a week. Sometimes on Sundays as well, if I either want to practice / try a new razor or because of my work.

09-18-2009, 11:00 AM
I was told early in my military career, "You can shave at night for the ladies, but you'll shave every morning for your Men."

09-18-2009, 11:04 AM
Daily, sometimes twice.

09-18-2009, 01:09 PM
I can only shave twice a week... I wish I could shave everyday though! :001_rolle

09-18-2009, 06:08 PM
Before DE: Once every couple months.

After DE: Every weekday in the morning (skip Sat&Sun). It is part of my morning routine now and I like it. Takes about 10-15min and makes me feel good.

09-18-2009, 06:26 PM
Six to seven days a week. If I'm not going out, I sometimes try to give my face a rest one day on the weekend.

09-18-2009, 06:45 PM
Daily! I didn't skipped a day since I started.

09-18-2009, 06:50 PM
Daily....and twice a day if I get a new razor to try...:blushing:

09-19-2009, 02:54 AM
6 days a week. Skip Friday.

09-19-2009, 04:08 AM

09-19-2009, 08:20 AM
I shave six times, most weeks. I usually skip Saturdays. Then, my Sunday shave is almost always my best shave of the week. I think the skipped day lets my skin rest.
