Hi new to the forum here.
I have been using my Phillips Norelco Electric shaver for about 9 months. Before that I rarely used it unless I was in rush. Instead I used a generic disposable cartridge razor.
The problem with the cartridge razor is every few shaves I will get ingrown hairs. Either on my cheeks, near the ear area, or on the jawline. They are ugly and painful. One of them seems to have scarred and it left a faded, but noticeable dark brown spot on my face. That was 9 months ago and it hasn't gone away. So I stopped using cartridge razors.
The electric isn't very good at all. 1.5 days after a shave the shadow and hair is already visible. I don't even have a thick beard. The razor doesn't cut the hairs very well either. I have to press quite firmly and then I get razor burn which lasts a couple of hours.
I usually keep a goatee or go clean shaven. The hair on my cheeks and neck grows in curly like my head. It also grows in patchy like opposed to my mustache and goatee.
I want to know if it's worth getting a Double blade Saftey Razor. I have watched videos and a few guys said you won't or rarely get ingrown hairs. That's the only thing I really care about, I don't want a marked up face.
