No one I guess? Luckily I got a job where I still do not need to shave. I do so once a year so I do not get my beard stuck in my fly.

No one mentioned the supplies/routine that i use to shave so here is my addition.

BIC Disposable Shaver
Aloe Vera Gel

My routine
1. Partially fill the sink with COLD water.
2. Toss the razor in the water to chill (Metal contracts when cold).
3. Apply Aloe Gel as you would shave cream.
4. Shave rinsing in the water still in the sink. If razor gets clogged wipe off with thumb by running your thumb away from the blade.
5. Clean up, leaving the cap off of the razor to keep it from rusting.

The benefits of using Aloe.
1. Moisturizing/ lubricating
2. Can see the hair and skin through the gel
3. Natural (some have extra stuff added)
4. Its soothing and helps heal cuts if you nick yourself.
5. If you miss wiping the extra off you can rub it in.
6. You probably have some sitting in a cabinet at home.

Note: If the aloe has added ingredients to sooth/numb burn it might tingle on sensitive skin like the ICE part of ICE HOT.
I move at the speed of awesome.

My dad has been using disposable shavers more frequently, but he still may have a Phillipshave from the 80s that he bought when he was still single. I have used disposable shavers a few times (didn't shave so frequently), and last time I had a shave it was at a barber shop and just with an electric trimmer.

My razor and super secret shaving cream

I use a triple blade disposable razor as the Price of my quad blade refills surpassed my income.
Also I have been using a Aloe-Vera liquid hand soap as shaving cream for the last 15 years , not only does it provide good lubrication it gives the face a good wash for clear skin - with the anti aging of Aloe I now look 16
(really 48 and just about look it)

Save gas
