Can I link in here? Is that legal?
This thing is the best!!! Yes, it says "for men" but that's because they want to keep us oppressed. I use it once a week on my lady patch and I swear to goodness NO INGROWNS. It's magic. It also trims realllllly low so you don't see any hair bristles or anything. Clean, smooth, bikini area.
You're gonna like the way you look, I guarantee it. Charismatic smile and wink towards camera
Seriously it's like magic, I've never even nicked myself once.
My favorite review on Amazon goes "I shave my balls with one side and my face with the other. Its probably gross, and I don't care. It works well."

I use one of these, bought at target for about 25$. It’s masc enough of a look that. No one questions, and the battery lasts for almost a week’s worth of shaving before needing a recharge! Blades last almost a month depending on how much you use it for area wise. Mine I use for chest/back/legs/arms, and I’m naturally hairy like Bigfoot, so I put mine through a lot of work. I typically change the blades every 3.5 weeks.
Honestly for an electric it gets a surprisingly close shave on its own! For my legs and back I don’t even need a second razor most of the time if it’s blade was fresh!
Just throwing out this ad for one of the best investments I’ve made in my personal grooming in years!

Buy this anyone can shave with this. And move on from it.
It's not going to grow back thicker, even after the first time. It should grow back, I don't see why it wouldn't. If you're really worried about that though you could use something like this. It doesn't completely get rid of the hair. It just shortens it

this isn't exactly what you asked, but dont go to the shaver shop, they are the markup specialists. i have the wahl lithium ion clippers, got em from amazon for approx $75 delivered.
or shaver shop price: http://www.shavershop.com.au/online-store/beard-trimmers/beard-trimmers/wahl-lithium-ion-stainless-steel.html
recommend them, carves through my dirty big face rig like a hot knife through butter.
also, they have a quick charge feature which gives you like 20 mins runtime from 5 mins charge.
if you shop locally you can probably find them at a good price.
>https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Bodygroom-7100-BG2040/dp/B0037HP9OA/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 - Here's one razor I've been looking at. It seems good, but it apparently has a crummy battery.
I actually have this exact razor. The battery is fine, assuming you don't try to cover too large an area in a single session. However, if you have thick hairs like I do, you may find the cartridges getting dull much quicker than they should. I've been having trouble finding replacements lately, too, so I'll probably need to order them from Amazon or something.
I just bought the "Amazon Choice" seemed to have decent reviews. I've had it for about a month now and it's been good.
This baby is where it's at
So when doing something like your face you lay it flat.
When trimming a spot you do not want it to catch, lay it 90 degrees and just drag it. It has at most minorly caught my skin (not cut it) only a handful of times. You can get a close cut with it too. Same as no hair? no. But almost none.
I like this one.
I use it with the black guard. Gets close. No nicks or pulled skin.
Secret is to move it back and forth slowly.
Shave my head, and wear a goatee. I use a Phillips Oneblade with a USB charger for trimming the goatee. Usually use a DE razor for shaving my head at home, but when I'm traveling I just carry a few cheap double-blade disposables.
The Oneblade doesn't look that much smaller than the Wahl, but it is waterproof, pretty durable, and the battery life on mine is still fine after more than 4 years.
Not as sustainable as safety razors but I've been using Phillips One Blade for a few years now. It gives a close enough shave and the blades last for a few months
It’s better than most but I have my own favourite: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01K1HPA60/
I don’t trim down to the bare skin though. I leave 1-2mm of stubble to prevent chafing. In areas where I don’t want any hair at all, not even stubble like near the leg bend, I finish the job with this: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0896TKVF9/
I use a Philips Norelco OneBlade; it's about $35 on Amazon, the blades can be replaced (and tell you when they need to be replaced), it's waterproof, and it cuts pretty well.
Not a electric shaver, but this...
This looks really good and only has a few guards. It's what I was looking at when mine seemed like it might have been dying.
The ones that seem to have a huge range of adjustment seem suspect honestly.
Get a trimmer with a guard designed for the job. It won’t shave down to the skin, but you may be content enough with those results and if you’re not, it’s a lot easier to shave the rest.
This is what I use: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01K1HPA60
I use a Phillips OneBlade. Best razor I’ve ever owned. Mine came with three beard guards (I just keep a chin-only goatee) and you can even get the newer ones with a pubic hair guard. (No shit you actually can).
The blades last about 3 or 4 months depending on how often you shave and the replacements are $10-15.
Get this guy. $18 solves all your beard trimming needs. Once you've grown your beard in a little, the long hairs will serve as a sort of "wall" that you can shave your neck right up to with your regular razor.
I love this Philips one-blade hybrid shaver. I just did some "maintenance" today and it was a breeze. No razor bumps or in-grows for me!
I use a specific beard trimmer, the philips one blade. Its a nice compromise between a close shave and risking knifing my genitals with a razor sharp blade.
amazon philps one blade
I've been cutting my own hair at home, my girlfriend helps me cut the back.
All done with this and this.
We use the novel on one blade hybrid. It trims just about as close as a razor and shaving cream without the need for cream or the chance of Knicks.

Philips Norelco Bodygroom
MAKE SURE to FOLLOW the charging-cycles correctly. I've seen a number of complaints about dud batteries after months to a year. Mine's 2-3y/o and holds a charge for like a month+ of every 2-3 day usage. It's showerproof, too, I love the damn thing.
I've had this one for about 18 months. That seems like the average lifespan whether I use it in the shower or not.
Here is what I use Phillips norelco $19.97 on Amazon works great. Beard, pubes, chest
This is the one I share with my man! It works so good! I can even trim my butthole area with no concern for cuts. I usually use it after I shower, then I rinse to wash away the hair. You could also use it before the shower, just shave your labia first then your butthole area, then disinfect the blade.
Beard trimmer! I have this one. It works so, so much better than the purpose-built "personal bikini trimmer" I had before. That one for sure gave me the yanking issue, but I haven't had it once with the Philips.
I did nick myself with it once, but that was because I was a dumbass and didn't hold the skin taut enough in the super delicate thigh crease zone while cleaning up the edges with no guard on.
i’m a woman and enjoy having a slight bush. i use the philips norleco trimmer for my lady bits and love it!

Ayyy bro good on you for the minox, stick on it - It helped me out a ton with some patchiness. If it hurts when you shave tho, you could always look into getting a better electric trimmer to bring you closer to the skin. A cheap one (or one that isn't specifically for facial hair) won't get you any good results. Personally I like the one blade a lot: https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-OneBlade-QP2520-90/dp/B01D328BG6
Yeah, you could always just practice the muscle movements that your eyes naturally do when you laugh! Once you notice what your face does, you can start to control it manually to a posture you like / find attractive. Practice making that face and you'll be golden.
Sorry to hear about your teeth though homie. I know a lot of people still like seeing smiles though - Depending on the setting though, your best bet might be to learn to love your mouth anyway. I promise you self-love will be more rewarding in the long run.
Assuming that can't happen for you bc I know how stubborn those feelings of insecurity can be, just try your best to find a nice facial posture for yourself. You can always smile with your mouth closed. The first pic you posted has a very nice half smile :)
For this purpose I (and my wife) use a Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 1100, Showerproof Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer. 20$, single battery, cuts short, but not too short. Amazon Smile link.
I use this trimmer for my beard and pubes. It's awesome, it holds a charge forever, the blade is powerful, precise, and crafted in a way that makes it "soft" on the skin. I shave my neck raw with the blade, and it barely reddens the skin, and if I clip my dick with it, it doesn't hurt (as much).
>Venus Sensitive Razors
If you are shaving, be sure to condition the area before hand. Try a shave oil. You will also want to use a very gentle exfoliant. I would also suggest using a thick, sensitive skin cream like CeraVe afterward. You will also want to make sure you keep the area dry - it is hot as hell during the summer and there is inevitably going to be a lot of sweating going on.
TBB, this is exactly why I stopped shaving. I trim. This is what I use. Ingrowns are now very rare for me. I might get one or two, tops, in a year. And boy howdy, does it save time!
Check out the Philips one blade. It has a very small head that makes it easy to shave close to your stoma. It has a replaceable head when it wears out.
Same issue, take a trimmer first with a more gentle razor attachment and get the hair down to the skin as much as possible. After that, it becomes a piece of cake. Highly recommend doing the trimming outside since it’s going to be a ton of hair. This is what I use. It has a slightly large and more gently head for body stuff: Philips Norelco MG7750/49... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07145GM4B?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
It all depends on your skin. If you have really sensitive skin, you're not even gonna want to shave, just get a beard trimmer and run that over your face without attachments. Next step up from that is an electric shaver, something that looks similar to this, and use it accordingly. If you're an individual gifted enough to be born with tough skin on your face, you can learn to use a strait razor. I wouldn't be able to help you with that because my skin can't handle it, so I never learned how to do it well.
Obviously, don't use any of this stuff on your - ah - intimate areas unless you know exactly what you're doing. You don't want cuts down where the sun don't shine.
I deadass just use the same one I use with my facial hair. I mean, of course I use different toppers, and of course I sanitize it before and after, but...
It's cheap lol.
Here's the link.
Hey! Thanks for responding. When you say the Phillips Trimmer, what do you mean? Do you mean this? Or are you talking about one in particular?
I'm a guy who has a short beard and hair (sometimes shaved head often very short) and I have used this baby for years. It's an amazing product and with near daily use I only charge it every 2-3 months

I used to shave with a razor, had similar issues. Switched over to the Philips Norelco OneBlade and shaving is a breeze now and it's a pretty close shave, not quite as close as a razor though. Not a paid actor and I highly recommend it.
I wouldn't shave with a razor... It causes razor bumps.
You should use this tool and just use it all over your body.
How long? 1 hour maybe. Hopefully you're flexible enough to reach your back. I can.
As for your balls and arse hole, use a guard on it so you don't cut
It’s a common myth that shaving increases hair growth, it will just blunt the edges of the hair giving an illusion of thickness. For shaving, my best advice would be to trim any excess hair first. I use the Philips 7000, which can also be used for body hair maintenance.
When I shave, I’ll use either Dollar Shave Club or Harry’s razors and Duke Cannon or Harry’s shaving cream. I shave against the grain and wet the razor with warm water prior to each stroke. I highly recommend Duke Cannon Aftershave for reducing bumps and irritation after your shave. Shaving cream and aftershave will help a ton with reducing irritation and maintaining a smooth face.
I use a beard trimmer on my armpits. You can't really see the hair unless you look closely and no razor burn: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D328BG6/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_A6V1088K5K6HZ0D5QE0V?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I use something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01K1HPA60/
I use before showering, sitting on the toilet, so totally dry.
I wouldn't recommend scissors. I've used them, and nicked myself way more often than when using an electric trimmer. They work, just dangerous.
Phillips Oneblade is ridiculously useful. Emergency shaving, trimming, body hair... I heard it was all things, was very skeptical but bought one. I'm blown away.
Something like this would be sufficient for a long stubble look

For my snip, I just got in there with the clippers on my normal electric razor. You don't have to do it perfectly bald, they just need to be able to get to the skin without hair in the way.

Interesting, I use this bad boy. It’s super cheap and can be found in any Walmart/Target/Drug store.
Maybe it has something to do with how long you let your hair grow before trimming?
I got a Philip norelco electric razor. Body groomer series 1100. Link below.
Seriously this thing WILL NOT KNICK YOUR KNICKERS. It won't bite your balls. And it won't shave your thick hairy bush.
So only use it on your thin, dainty, delicate, skin sack.

I would consider an electric body hair trimmer! I use the Philips 7000 at the 5mm body hair setting to trim and from there I’ll use a handheld razor if I need to shave entirely

I'll straight shill a product: Philips Norelco OneBlade
Just shave it all. This razor is the tits.
First, why would you use someone else’s stuff especially if you know they sleep around. Please don’t do that ever again. I never use razor on my pubic area or dick. If i do i break out like you. That was before i started having sex so i know its not stds. You could also be sensitive it. I only trim. I will include the link for my personal favorite. I use it for trimming my pubic area, dick, balls, and hole. I don’t know anything about that dark spot so I cannot help you there. I would get tested if you are concerned about it.

Phillips makes some really great electric razors, The nifty thing about them is that they come with interchangeable heads so you can use the razor for more then just your groin area, this one is pretty cheap:
I had a bad experience with the lawnmower ( it still nicked me with it's anti nick technology).
I use one similar to this one:
Mines a bit cheaper, but gets all my grooming needs taken care of.
Bro, I have a similar, but not terrible, issue.
This is the best clipper I've ever owned. I use it for everything, face, head, and butt (yes, I clean both the butt and clippers before and after).
$44 and I've only charged it once since June.
Shave the head once every few weeks, face occasionally and asshole.....2-3 months.
Try this one: https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Trimmers-Rechargeable-Professionals-9818/dp/B0058SY1XQ
I've had this one for about 2 years now, and the entire trimmer head simply snaps on and off. No screws, no bolts. Battery life is fantastic as well. Comes with the standard set of blade/guards, along with an ear/nose hair trimmer head, a shave head and a precision trimmer head (about 1/2" wide).
If you want a suggestion for a good electric shaver I suggest the OneBlade, I have two, one for my face/neck and one for everything else.
Don’t shave any off but use one of these beard trimmers set to a long length to get it all even. Then keep growing or our. So you might cut off like a tiny bit so it’s all even now. Then in 2-4 weeks, do a small trim to even up again

For nails I use normal pet clippers, then an electric nail file to smooth them out.
No, unless your hair grows ridiculously fast and just perpetually looks like a 5:00 shadow.
Invest in a good body trimmer. I use the Norelco one blade. It was only $30 and one tip has lasted me over a year.

I recommend this trimmer I’ve had it for like 3 years so far and have only replaced the blades once keep in mind you have to put oil on blades so it runs smoother every so often. The battery life is good sometimes I forget to charge and still has enough juice to trim
me for another sesh or 2. The guard helps with trimming your bush and tree too. Easy to take part and clean too. It’s gone up in price since I bought it but I’d definitely get another one of these if it ever broke on me
I have this one, bought it on Amazon. I had to buy a new one because my nephew jacked my original one because he liked it so much. Been using it for years though. I have a trimmed beard and it's also easy to get straight lines with. No razor burn or bumps.
For the pubic hair above the penis and scrotum an electric adjustable beard or hair trimmer, similar to this.
And a four to 6 blade razor similar to this. It’s not a perfect system, either. I still occasionally knick the sack. The electric razor helps to avoid razor burn because I could never shave it all off because of the guaranteed razor burn, but the adjustable allows precision to the height of pubic hair north of your penis. There is still an issue of razor burn when I clean up the thighs next to the main bit. Hope it helps.
I dont use a razor, i have two clippers, one for my face, one for armpits/pubes. This is the second one: https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Multigroom-attachment-MG3750/dp/B01K1HPA60

I had the exact same problem. This might not work for you but it did me. I started using an electric shaver. I use Barbasol for sensitive skin. Most won’t agree with me on this step but for my aftershave I use Stetson which is alcohol based. I do this because the alcohol kills off bacteria and helps with any cuts. It soothes the face and prevents razor burn for me. Make sure to moisturize your neck at night before bed. Hope this helps bro.
I won't go near my armpits with a razer to easy to get ingrown hair and razor burn ia no fun. I use this shaver on dry armpits and shower / exfoliate after. Then follow up with an unscented lotion for skin repair. I haven't had any issues since going this route.
The only shaver/trimmer I use for both home and travel is a
Philips Norelco OneBlade - it was purchased for me as a gift by someone who raved over it, and I've since recommended it to a few friends.
I keep stubbly/scruffy facial hair as well, and before the OneBlade found that I needed to clean up my neckline and shape edges still with a standard razor since the trimmer couldn't get close enough - this would give me razor burn, especially in the dry winter months.
I haven't touched a razor since - charge it up, add the guards for trimming, remove them for getting a close shave. Battery seems to last forever, definitely enough for a 2-3 week trip. I've replaced the "blade" once since I got it, and probably didn't even need to. Also, it's waterproof so you can rinse it off or use in the shower.
If you try it for shaving, I recommend using it on dry skin and going against the grain. I tried my old shave soap, and while it glided nicely the shave wasn't as close as when dry.
> When I try to even trim my hair with scissors, my pubic area gets very irritated.
From personal experience, I suggest getting a beard trimmer and experiment with the different guard sizes until you find one that doesn't cause irritation.
I use Philips Norelco MG3750 Trimmer.
norelco one blade.. cheap and works great. https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-OneBlade-QP2520-90/dp/B01D328BG6
use a fine comb first, then go WITH the grain.. start with the biggest guard and work your way down to the length you want.. I go with 3.. but most people will probably like 4. after all that.. take the guard off.. shave that neck, yo.. then use the edge of the razor to trim around your lips and your side burns and the outline of your beard. don't worry if you mess anything up.. it's hair.. it grows back..
to get more a custom.. do it EVERY day.. or at least every two days.. it will make you more comfortable. also use a beard oil afterwards and CONDITION your beard when you shower.. you want that beard to be soft. Don't use a 2 in 1 conditioner and shampoo.. get like a scentless conditioner.
Their actual trimmers. Definitely don’t use it on your balls all Willy nilly though. Just stretch out the skin and get to work
I bought a $55 electric trimmer and have used it for years.
It's not as close as a blade, but it's fucking close enough and it's a 100 times more convenient.
I probably haven't bought a blade in decades. Once I discovered that electric worked almost as well but was a fuckload cheaper, faster, and easier, there was no going back to shitty, expensive blades.
i just got a wahl body trimmer with a bunch of attachments. i tried without the guard on my thigh (thick dark hair like u/fire_thorns husband) and seems to do the trick.
next tip i've read is exfoliating, so will try that next.

To add on to the other comment, I would suggest purchasing some clippers like this
What you want is the thin chrome head one (not sure what it's called), but it's the one right next to the clippers in the first photo, between the nose hair clipper head. That thin head is what's going to let you fade your beard in.
To help you could use a marker to line where you want your beard to start, then shave at the line. When you have a clean line, use the thin clipper head to blend it in. I found it easier to control the blending if I turn the clipper upside down instead of using normally.

Use it with the 0.5 mm comb on the balls.
I imagine squatting over a mirror, and using one of those electric trimmer/groomer things that don't have exposed blades might be the way to go. These shave on the push or the pull, and they're a lot safer than any bladed razor.
I (transwoman 44) use this. Using the 1mm guard keeps ingrown hairs from developing, and is a very close shave for body hair.
I feel great. My walk is even different. Not cocky, just enough confidence to make me feel good again. If you can spare the money do it. After two years living in a tent, I'm in a room now. It's just one of the many things I've been able to do. I'm starting to develop a rhythm again.
Here is a link to a great pair of hair clippers for only $20. I've had them before and they work for the beard and head. You'll be able to give yourself a full haircut. From head to toe. I have them in my wishlist.
I use this guy: Philips Norelco Bodygroomer BG1026/60 - showerproof, easy to use, bidirectional trimmer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010XIGBUQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_2IPVlL5i6NICR
It’s great and gets the job without using razors.
Philips norelco one blade. Theres 3 versions you can buy but the base is more than enough. check it out here on amazon
I use an electric trimmer with a 5mm comb attachment. It's pretty easy to trim everything down to the 5mm length. Might have to approach from a few angles to get the curly woorlys that try to avoid your cut but the comb keeps things comfortably far from the blade.
The longer hairs are less likely to cause itching. But it is a good idea to shower right after a trim and scrub the fresh cut hairs good with a cloth or natural sponge to help soften the fresh cut ends a bit.
You do you, but coming from a gorilla man...trimming with something like a oneblade
Will lead to a lot less grief and itchiness later on.
I've had this one for just over a year now and I like it. Comes with every attachment you need, can be rinsed with water though I just brush mine off and it's cordless with a lithium ion battery that lasts a long time. There's also a decent selection of cases made for it that offer better organization than the little pouch they provide.
Not sure if this trimmer is available in Europe but this is the one I use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01K1HPA60/
It's a beard trimmer but I had no problems using it to trim my pubic hair. It's also rechargeable.
This is what I have, its pretty damn quiet, not silent though. In the shower, you cant hear it over the water. Good too, but not for close shaving down there, just trimming then do a face razor.
Oster Model 76 or Model 10 for clippers. For a trimmer, I'm using a panasonic wet/dry and they work pretty well.
