Electric Razor - HELP???
Okay guys, Iam going to take quite a bit of stick here but I have purchased an electric razor.
I am still wet shaving regularly but I reckon an electric will be very handy for me under my current circumstances.
I have bought a Philips Coolskin (Nivea for Men) Shaver.
Got a great deal on it on Ebay. Very cheap price.
Anyway its waterproof, meaning that you can shave in the shower and it also dispenses Nivea gel as you shave.
Now we all know that hot water and steam is very beneficial when wet shaving (softens hair and makes it easier to cut) but is that still the case with electric shaving?
The reason I am asking is because you can buy pre-electric shave lotions that is alcohol based. These lotions dry and take out all the oil out of your skin. This would indicate that you should only electric shave when you face is totally dry?
However a lot of electric shavers are now water proof and recommend that you shave in the shower or bath with them?
I know this site spe......es in wet shaving but any tips really would be appreciated.
