    As in... a razor? Get any Gillette or Wilkinson's and you'll be fine, plus some shaving cream or gel. If you do that you shouldn't have skin problems, tho get some aftershave to make sure your pores finish up fine :rolleyes:
    Total cost: £10 maybe?

    You'll be looking at electric shavers then i guess. Is sensitive skin the reason you're not going for blades?

    Electric shavers cause more of a problem if you have sensitive skin.

    :ditto:

    I'd advocate the use of a good quality cartridge-type razor used with some shaving cream applied with a brush and/or shaving oil. It's really good for sensitive skin and both of them will go a long way.

    Yes, sensitive skin. Electric shaver would be good, since I'm new to all this shaving jazz. :p:

    In which case I'm guessing you don't need to shave too often or too large and area? This is the best time to get used to using a razor. Save the electrics form when you lead a much busier lifestyle and err, have to shave more.

    It's easy to spend that money on wet shaving if you want a really comfortable shave. I fear your hairs won't be very tough yet though. Just get a Mach3.

    Or start growing a beard.

    at 15 i doubt you will have much more than a tash :P razor will do fine. just remember, razors goes in straight line down, not side to side...that would be bad....

    Its actually quite hard to cut yourself shaving unless you aren't paying attention to what you're doing.

    Well, I wax my face as my mum told me to. I now do it more than once a week and it hurts like hell; hence why I'm converting to shaving.

    I'm quite busy and I would spend quite a lot of money to have an easy life.

    To be honest you'll find that as you get older and your hair gets thicker you need a blade opposed to an electric shaver. it seems like a waste of money.

    No, I have a lot of side hairs all over the place, also a 'tash' which grows back every 2 days or so... :shifty:
