I just use Gillette "Good News", without the
slime strip. I would prefer not to buy disposable, but
the Gillette GN are the only ones I've tried that
don't cut my face. And they're actually very cheap.
All the specialty razors seem like overpriced
gimmicks to me.
I haven't tried an old-fashioned type for decades.
Last time I did I found it tricky not to cut myself.
With the GN razor the blades are set and don't seem
to extend out far enough to cut.
On the other hand, it's been awhile since I had to
do a GQ shoot. (Well, never, actually, truth be told. :)
So I'm not all that picky about getting a perfect shave.
