Electric or Razor?razor

My acne was at its worse about two years ago. I got dozens of tiny, painful zits whenever I shaved. I thought about growing a beard, which would look horried. I tried various razors, and finally made the switch to a foil one (NOT the spinny three head ones). One of the best decisions I have ever made. The shaving acne went away within a few days, and it was probably the biggest single thing that I've done to improve my complexion aside from just starting acc a month ago.
what razor are you using?

I switched to electric from Conair I bought it at CVS for $40(estimate). And I havnt gotten a pimple shaving. Make sure not to use shaving cream or anything. I know its tuff and might hurt but do it. I get pimples if I use a razor.
THE ACNE CHALLENGE!!!

I had stopped shaving completely 2 months back but then my beard started making me look weird with my thin body. Got myself a philips trimmer and its a dream come true. No irritation at all and I don't have to carry all that hair on my face. An electric trimmer any day over a razor... makes me cringe even thinking about regular shaving.

Merkur 34C safety razor with bluebird razors, only feminists use electric garbage that cut about as good or clean as a butter knife.

For me, it's electric shavers all the way.
Razors pull at my skin a lot and strip away a layer causing redness and irritation. My electric shaver doesn't do this at all.
I use a Phillips electric shaver. It takes getting used to, but once you do there is zero irritation.
