you can shave upwards on your cheeks, but its a bit dangerous for places around the mouth

Try shaving in the direction parallel to the blade rather than perpendicular - Always fun

Anyone else think all those blokes in shaving ads must have a jaw line unknown to physical beings? I find shaving around my jaw line the hardest simply because the angles are all wrong, same goes for above my adams apple. I agree with the shaving cheeks both way thing, often the only way to actually get them shaved like rest of face.

it takes away the never ending debate of which way to shave is better .... and my beard comes out normally .. not at angles as certain centuries old rumours suggest ... .

and oh yes .. most important .. .get a good razor .... i use a Mach3 ... the first one .... i dont think the turbo one is much different ... though i did see one in ferrari red ... looked nice .... not as modern looking though

Got a Mach 3 Turbo and an electric razor, only prob with the electric is the fact that it leads to skin irritation if i use it too often.
