Over the past few weeks, I have been thinking about changing up my daily shave routine either with a new razor or shaving cream/gel; maybe even using a new technique.

I wanted to get everyone's take on what makes a really good shave.

Combination of everything. Razor mainly but the cream and technique are important too.

I agree. It's a combination, but IMO it goes in a hierarchy of:

1. Razor
2. Technique
3. Cream/Gel

But a great shave is only going to be as strong as your weakest link.

When I used to shave (not since October), I always got a better shave going against the grain. But sometimes it would irritate my neck and under my chin. I suppose better cream or razors would have helped prevent that.

I've been using Edge shave gel since I was 9.

I dont use cream or gel and the razors i use are pretty cheap, so I'd have to say technique i guess Laughing

I think the most important thing is having a good sharp razor blade.

A sharp razor blade is by far the most crucial piece.

Second is technique, you don't want to push too hard. Which is why I prefer a safety blade, they are built heavy so you don't have to apply much pressure.

Lastly, leave some facial hair. There have been studies that show being clean shaved may be seen as less favorable with women. Hell, there was even a study done that showed that men with mustaches earn more on average. But I'm sure you can devise a study for anything that you want to prove. I've been sporting a nice mustache for almost a year now. In that time, I've been given two raises and a large bonus. Case closed.

None of the the ones with like ten razors with all these fancy titles to try and convince you it's cutting edge like the hyper fusion turbo duo blades for a close shave.

Sharp razor is what makes it.

Doesn't matter if you're using 1, 5, or 50 blades, if it's not sharp, you're not getting a good shave.

After that, it's technique IMO. First swipe with the grain, second swipe against. I can't stand feeling like my hair is growing back hours after I shave so I go against the grain, though I know some don't like to.

What does it mean by "technique"? Is everyone not going top to bottom from the left or right?
