    Invest in a shaver, and do it your way.
    Your Mother shouldn't have a say in manly things like that!

    The hair on my face is so ****** up! Can someone recommend a good shaving product which I can use, meaning for a 15-year-old who doesn't want any facial hair; or hardly any facial hair.
    Thanks.

    lol, I presume you're desi... desi mums can be a bit weird.

    Just go out, buy some shiney new shaving gear and get on with it. Waxing sounds like a stupid idea. If you're scared or messing up your face, shave only with the grain and use the same blade once... if you're not too good at it and cut yourself, go electric.

    Ok guys, I have a budget of around £50; is there a quality shaving product that I can buy for that price?
    Please link me! I can probably get up to £60 if it's excellent.

    That might buy you a decent Braun shaver.

    Jesus Christ, you wax your face?? What on earth was your mum thinking when she told you to do that!?

    Go into Boots, buy a razor and some shaving cream, and tell your mum where to go :/

    I can't believe I have to write a tutorial on how to shave properly.

    1. Get yourself a decent razer, none of those throw aways.
    2. Put a face towel under hot water.
    3. Put the towel on your face for about 30 seconds.
    4. Wash your face with whatever anti-spot stuff you want to use.
    5. Wash your face with hot water.
    6. Apply shaving cream/foam going in small circles.
    7. Shave downwards, cleaning the blades with water every two or three goes. This is important. You must follow the way the hair grows or you will get ingrowing hair. I don't care if your mates tell you it makes for a deeper shave, they'll be the ones with red bumps all over their face.
    8. Wash with warm water.
    9. Close the purs with cold water.
    10. Pat dry and apply moisturiser.

    At 15 you probably won't be shaving every day and waxing every day when you get a bit older will be a pain the arse. I've never ever heard of anyone waxing their face lol.



    So what do you do with all the neck hair? Everyone shaves their neck.

    what happens if:

    get razor, keep for 3+months (only meant to be used for what, a week, a month?)

    shave in shower, without foam, or anti spot things, just hot running water.
    When finished, wash with the hot water.

    Or if I feel I do need foam, just use the shampoo bubbles from my hair?

    it's cheap, it's never caused me problems, what problems could that cause?

    (it also sounds a lot quicker, it takes me what, 2 minutes?)

    Basically my mum wouldn't let me shave because it brings 'nasty ugly hairs' and 'spots'.
    However, the paradox of this is, when I wax, I get the 'nasty ugly hairs' and 'spots'; it hurts and it ******* pisses me of. I have just looked in the mirror and both sides are covered with around 60 mumps of soon-to-be pimples. :cry:
    Can any of you guys tell me; do you really get, or have ever experienced, anything as profound as my mum has described; if you have, what was it like. If you haven't, are there any real disadvantages; and what are the advantages.

    Please help. Thanks!
    well, does she accompany you to the bathroom?
