Changed my mind: I bought a double edge (Merkur #38C "Barber Pole") and I used Feather blades. Cheaper than carts and with some practice I can shave just as quickly as with disposable razors.

For every day its electric shave. If its a special occasion its Mach 3.

On a day to day basic, electric for convenience. When I need to look smarter (formal events) I will wet shave with cartridge.

Well, even if this is a ridiculously old thread, I just switched to electric myself. I've always used disposables or cartridge type razors before, but I find that if I'm clean shaven, I look very young. But I can't grow a full beard because of my Indian blood, so I like just a little stubble instead.

There is no point making a whole new thread when one already exists.
"There is already a thread about this. Use the search function in the future!" - Sound familiar?

I've used all sorts of razors, power ones, normal ones, ones with one, two, three, four and five blades, etc.
The best ones I've found are actually from Asda, and they're really cheap compared to some of the main players.
Each razor lasts me about 2 months and they're quite a close shave too.

mach 3. shave every single day as my skin gets irritated easily by hair. looks like random hairs grow on an angle,and poke my skin. gets a little expensive
Ingrown hairs can be cause by multi-blade razors. I think it is called hysteresis. The first blade pulls and extends the hairs while the subsequent blades cut it. It gives a close shave but the remainder of the hair follicle is under the skin and as it grows can become ingrown.

I shave once or twice a week. Cartridge.. don't have a specific brand.. usually Gillette mach series though.
