Until recently I always just used an electric shaver. It had a sideburn trimmer on it as well. I generally used the sideburn trimmer to do all the shaving because it left some stubble, which I prefer. Sadly, I don't think it was meant for shaving facial hair like that, so it stopped working. Then when I switched to using the actual shaver, it packed in too.
Now I'm using some really nasty disposable razors that came in some kind of gift set along with some (what I imagine is) decent quality shaving gel. I never shaved with razors before because I was always under the impression that it was easy to cut yourself and that I'd be left with skin irritation. Neither of the two have occurred.
I'll probably stick with razors from now on. Just need to get myself a better quality one.
