    nothing at all to do with willies, but how much is a male razor?
    just asking because my boyfriend has lost his electric one, and his face is slowly being taken over by hair, so i thought i would treat him to a shiny new razor.. as long, of course, that it is not too expensive.

    also, come to think of it, how much is the shaving cream?

    It ranges a whole lot. Basically, any of those are decent enough, can't really go wrong with a Philishave, the more you're willing to pay, the better quality it will be, but even the cheapest one will be (mostly) bearable, just may not last as long.
    Or the Mach 3 vibrating wet shave one would make for a nice, not too expensive gift.

    EDIT: Ignore all of that then!

    Mach 3 do a Turbo (is that the name of the vibrating one?) gift set, I think it's about £13 or so although I don't remember exactly.

    If you're talking about a non-electric razor, the razor itself if not usually expensive (maybe £7 for a Gilette Mach3, not sure), they just sting you for the goddamn blades!! :mad:

    That is the reason why I have stopped shaving in favour of the designer stubble look... that and the fact that it is less time consuming than shaving every day and looks better IMO

    Ouch.

    I use the Mach 3 Turbo with King of Shaves gel. It's all rather expensive though - incidentally, razor blades are the most shoplifted item in Boots.

    Make sure that you get one with free blades on the back of the pack!

    Dont bother with the normal crap. Get a merkur vision 2000 with butterfly design! SO much better.
    Its a LOT ..about..£70 BUT its perfect, as you get older or you are shaving different parts of your face, you adjust exposure to the blade for the best effect.
    Basically, you spend £70 on the razor, a really high quality one so that you wont ever replace if you take care of it. Sure its expensive but a box of 10 razors, which you can probbly buy every 2 months is £3....so in about a year, you would save about £40-50 on the actual razors, so you make your money back and get a better shave.

    Id be chuffed, it was just hard taking the plunge to buy it...but i never regretted it. It does take some getting used to, so you do have to be VERY careful..but that means you improve your technique and get better results not like those machs and gillettes were you can basically paint your face with it and it gives the same effect but makes the face more tender....a word of warning though...i left the razor to the max setting near my window, reached for a toothbrush without looking, and it sliced through a chunk of thumb, i didnt even feel it until i looked and went crazy...its all good now though

    Make sure its a decent one like the Gilette M3 (about £10), and not those crappy ones that last for like a day.

    i actually plumped for some disposable ones just for now.. they didn't have any of the ones you had mentioned, so i will have a look around again tomorrow.

    anyway, the pack of 5 were £2, and i paid with a £10 note.. but the stupid cashier gave me back a £5 note, 4 £1 coins, a 50p, 2 x 20p, and a penny, so they only cost 9p. bargain that was in boots.

    tomorrow i will go somewhere else and see if i can find one of those nice ones you mentioned.. i am not, however, spending £70 on him.. idiot didn't even get me a christmas present. bah.

    If that had been me serving you, I'd have given you them for free. I wouldn't bother changing it.
