I have used Braun for years... never got on with wet shaves the more blades they gave me the less I wanted to hack myself to bits..

was just buying pre electric and balm to try and the assistant said take another for free thought I had lifted another pre electric but got home and found out it was aftershave.

noticed a difference using pre electric tho and the balm calms the heat down

after a while it does get better don't really need to use it as much just depends how heavy growth gets

definately took me a few weeks to get used to it. And some face cream from the mrs was helpful after shaving as well.

Also try shaving morning and evening to begin with, I heard that can help.

Yes m8 pre shave is the best way but make sure you don't press on to hard and go in all directions to ensure a smooth shave. it's best to shave first thing in the morning before you have a wash get a better shave.

Not all expensive aftershaves are the best depends on people metabolism and skin, some of the cheaper ones smell nicer on some people.

When i first started using electric, it used to set my face on fire, I never used pre shave and carried on once a day. After a couple of weeks of heat your skin gets used to it.

I use 'Clinique' face scrub before i shave and 'Clinique' M lotion straight after, skin is in great nick now, and I can shave as often as I want now.

I bought a Phillips CoolShave but I've given up on it,no matter on much Nivea anti irritation cream I put on my neck I always ended up with a nasty rash which lasted a few days.
Gone back to wet shaving now
