Shaving: removing the shadow?
I’m a 28 year old Italian guy. I have to shave my face everyday and sometimes twice a day if I am going out at nights and want to have a smooth face. I use an electric for convenience and I have the latest Braun Pulsonic. I’ve fiddled with razors before but I get annoyed very easily when compared to the quickness of an electric. The problem I have is that I constantly have a shadow going on. When I use the electric, I get a really close shave but you can definitely tell I have dense facial hair going on. And if I use a blade and go with the grain, I never get a close shave. I always have to go with the grain and then against it. And then comes the redness, ingrown hairs and cuts. Is there any way to get a really close shave that even the shadow goes away for a few hours too? I pretty much assume I need the best razor blade on the market but am I restricted to razor shaving for the ultimate in looks and feel?
