Shaving without foam

Recommended Posts

If you don't like saving with a foam like I do. You can buy an electric. I suggest not going cheap. Remington's are really bad deal, and Philip norelco makes most of their money after you have had some success using their shavers so their the best. You can buy them the cheapest on Amazon. Again, you get what you pay for.

 

Oh sure, there is some upfront cost, but it's cheaper than buying razors and cream in the long run. A good one won't cost you more than a years worth of razors, but don't think you're going to save money by buying direct.

Still buying in the stores will cost you more in the end. Convince isn't cheap. Buy online and wait is my advice. Again, I got mine from Amazon, and people msay I look like I have received treatment.

I have an electric that I've owned for years that I will use for a clean up, using a circular motion works best.  But mostly I do use a razor.  I don't care for foam so I use skin lotion applied after I moisten my skin so its a fairly thin application.  This works well for me.

I always felt you get a much closer shave with a manual than an electric. Plus you can buy the girl shave gel and smell like baby powder, or something tropical, or lavender! :D

I suspect you are right there Lizzie, especially in these days of multi blade razors, but personally, except for a session when I was about two or three when I tried to imitate dad (parents really shaken but I escaped unscathed :) ), I have always used electric so I think I am unlikely to change.

Even when using an electric shaver, at least for my face, I moisten (or even moisturise slightly) my face, then dab dry before shaving. I follow up shaving by moisturising.

It can also be a tell if you're using mens shaving cream and deoderants as they have scents no girl would wear.

I use an expensive foil electric for my face, until I can get the bloody hair removed, and just a bladed razor on the body. Using blades on my face causes a terrible rash/burn. Always use women's shaving Gels and disposable for the body.

The shaving bumps in the more sensitive areas I control with Bikini Zone, works great!

Hey now...my wife uses men's deodorant.  LOL  Honestly, I've never smelled it on her where one would say, "HEY!  She's wearing men's deodorant."  It's all kind of stinky really.

I use a woman’s shaving gel for my face and a sweetly scented body wash for the rest of my body. I turn the warm water off, lather up and then shave.  This technique works well for me.  I use a sweetly scented body lotion after my shower.

 

I feel feminine, fresh and stubble free when I’m done.

      An interesting read!   One of the sayings I often use, Jani, is that the difference between a man and a women is that they each inherit a different set of problems.   Tracy

      I personally started by being very vocal about my support of LGBT issues. This was during the presidential election and I've been Dem my whole adult life so it wasn't very surprising. I also worked my butt off (literally) losing weight. I prepped my friends by showing them my favorite band, Steam Powered Giraffe, who has a trans female singer. They all reacted with a kind of "that's nice, good for her" attitude so I felt safe telling them. By putting subtle hints into every day life it lets you know how people feel about the topic before you out yourself.

      Hi Arianna!!! I'm glad you introduced yourself! I know what you are going through.....I was such a sullen and broody individual before I finally THREW the curtains OPEN and faced my issues directly. I was a very moody person, and suffered some depression here and there but it turns out it was because I was not living for myself, and I was repressing who I really was. Anyway, fast forward to 38, and this year when I finally looked at myself in the mirror and started making changes. It can be a hard and scary journey though. I have never felt better, happier or more at ease with life than I do now....but the first steps were really scary. I hope only the best for you, Arianna......your doing the right thing! Go GIRL!  Kisses and Hugs,   Sunny Kay

      Hello Amy.  Things certainly sound like they are heading in the right direction for you.  Your GP sounds great too.   Jani

      A very good essay.   Interestingly the comments were not incendiary.  I liked this (partial) reply to one, though it didn't speak to the scouting aspect of the essay.  "While the specifics of moving from male to female and female to male differ, the motivations are essentially the same: they are all about identity, and really have nothing to do with "the grass is greener on the other side." We transsexuals think about this long and hard (because all we hold dear is at-risk), and we realize that when we change, we are gaining the problems of one side whilst losing the problems of the other (and having transgender problems besides!), BUT most of find the new problems worth the joy of being true to ourselves - very very few of us go back."  Hopefully the prior commenter who seemed supporting learned something.     Changing my problems for new ones; thats an action I can understand!   Jani

      Line up someone to assist you with daily activities like shopping, cleaning and the such for the first week or so afterwards.  You'll be tired and busy with "homework".   Jani
