manscaper.


I just use the old standard razor stuff.  Using hibiclens as aftershave helps to avoid the red bumpies.

My review of the above manscaper:  IT SUCKS  :wha:
 
I know that comes as no surprise.
 
My wife bought it for me on sale because I was slacking with my shaving.  As a hirsute guy, I need to shave daily if I don't want sharp stubble and have only been shaving twice a week.  She made herself clear by buying that piece of junk (which will hurt your junk if you let it near). 
 
It does not give a close shave and takes much longer than a razor to finish the job.  I'll stick with my Sensor Excell.

Was wondering what's better, more or less blades?

Considering the facts that more blades is supposed to do a closer shave, maybe if I get a 3/2 bladed razor instead of the 5 blades fusion to shave my legs it might help with the evil red bumps... and save some cash. 

Challenge it because it is unreachable.

More blades are supposed to result in closer spacing, more even pressure, and less irritation, not a closer shave. Short version, fewer blades won't get rid of bumps.
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

the body trimmer pictured above is good at just that, trimming. when spring approaches i start with it on the legs then go to the blades. the trimmer is good for all the chest fur too. so i have heard.

I'm easy when it comes to shaving but even I have some preferences.


 - multi blade disposable razor (I use a Schick 4 blader because the company's global marketing director is a cyclist) is good for super smooth shaves but will shave the outer layer of skin off. In the summer not a problem. In cooler weather, when dealing with heat rub, it burns.


 - double blade disposable razor (I use a Schick... dunno, it's white with green trim and labeled "for sensitive skin") is better for winter shaving. Not as much skin shaved off so I can put on Atomic Balm in less than 24 hours. Also easier to use if I'm without my regular shaving soaps or whatever.


I had an electric razor but it was never as smooth. I guess because it didn't slough off some of the dead skin or something. I forgot it at a training camp and never got it back (motel in FL).

I wax, and for a quick maintenance I use an epilady. I hate shaving to me it's a waste of time, because you have to do it all over again the next day.
 
I'm going to start laser hair removal soon, the only sucky part about that is I will have to stop waxing and shave. :(

Completely untrue, you can continue to shave and if not, they will shave you when you go in.

You can shave following the treatments as well, but you shouldn't need to. They encourage you to shave about 3-5 days after to tug out all the dead hairs.

Waxing is off limits for 3 weeks prior to treatment.

I think she meant she would have to stop waxing and start shaving instead. I want umd to get some laser hair removal. But that's on a long list of things to spend money on. Before any laser hair removal, I'd set aside money for Fraxel laser treatment.

Yes, I meant that.

Why do men have trouble with razor bumps? Are they not using good razors, or product to shave with? Or, is their skin different?

I think our skin is different.  I use a Sensory Excell titanium whatever.  It is the same blades (but not the same blade) that I shave my face and head with.  I have never had a problem with my face.  My inner thighs are horrible for red meanies.  I'm gonna suck it up and get waxed if I can find a place that will do men.  Many waxing places in Tulsa will only wax men's chest back and leg, but not "down there".  I'm gonna look real retarded if I don't do my ass.

You could try this, if you are prone to bumps you might still get them with waxing.... Ingrown hairs  :/  This helps with that as well. I pick it up at Sally's Beauty Supply. You could also try exfoliating with a salycic acid soap in the waxed areas that are prone to bumps. There is also a numbing spray, ask for them to use it prior to the hair removal.
