I also had problems with acne when shaving. I used a regular razor. Not gilette or anything, just the most simple one blade razor. The problem was that I cut too low to the skin. The cut was smooth, but there was some blood and afterwards a lot of small white acne. Now I only use an electric razor. It doesn't cut perfectly to the skin, but since it doesn't damage the upper layer of skin, I do not get any acne whatsoever.

On a note, a three blade razor seems to be more suitable for my skin than a 2-blade razor(gilette sensor excel).

 

Weird...

The Phillips 3D rotary head is the best shaver; make sure you buy the top of the line model with metal (partly) body. Wash the machine every few day with anitseptic soap, and let dry. Then apply the Phillips blue solution to lubricate. You will never have a better, effortless shave untill they introduce its successor.

I don't use a razor because it irritates my skin. I use this Remington trimmer and it works pretty nice. The shaving is not as close, but I don't have that redness and itchiness.

Hey, so im looking for a permanent razor to use now, but im having some problems. Ive looked into the Gillette Trac II Plus and Gillette Sensor Excel Razor, but they are not in stores around me. I really want to be able to buy the razor in a store like Target, instead of having to wait like at least a week for it to arrive if i buy one online. Any recommendations for a good manual razor i can get in stores in SoCal? Thanks!
