    Just wondering if anybody has any recommendations for electrical trimmers that are good for keeping facial hair trim. I got tired of wet shaving a few months ago and have since kept a regular face of tidy stubble so that I don't have to rip my face to shreds or shave every morning.

    I've been using a body hair trimmer that's designed for all over basically and going for a number 1 every other morning, but obviously it's not specifically designed for contours on the face. So does anybody have any recommendations? I don't want to go for a completely clean shave but then I don't want a beard trimmer either (do I?). Cheers fellas! (Or ladies so inclined :-S)

    I just use a hair trimmer like you get at the barbers with adjustable height teeth.

    I shaved my beard of and had a wet shave for the first time in 6 years. I look like a big baby.>:(
    Although I was amazed at how nice my skin is under there, I was expecting some horrible rash or something but it is so nice it makes the rest of my skin start to look bad. Now I just have to wait for it to grow back while hiding in my flat.

    I have this. The vacuum thing is good, but otherwise I'm not massively impressed with it. The design makes shaving under the nose difficult.

    Yeh the one I'm currently using is a bit like that, but it just doesn't go round my jaw line at all and I have to push the fucker quite hard against my skin to get it to reach anything as it has a clip on replaceable cover.

    Can't go wrong with a Remington.

    I've had one for years with no problems. You can find varying levels of what types of attachments they come with. Mine also came with a smaller trimmer for those hard-to-reach places and a travel case. Very nice.

    I was starting to think paying more might get me a better one, but it could be more that my current one is a jack of all trades rather than one specifically for the face.

    I have this too, only I never use it because I've lost the fucking charger.

    It was alright, though.

    The lacerations on my face say different.

    Hmm, I never got sliced up that much, though I kept it at about 1mm.

    Best way to do it, I've found.
    Bit of trial and error, then you're sorted!

    I guess Remington shavers aren't as popular as I thought?

    My philips has gives you a nivea jizz facial while you shave but it doesnt have a stubble length setting.

    /Shave
    /Wait 24 hours

    Perfect!

    I also have this; it's alright. It seems to catch most of the hairs in the little plastic container. The length setting resizer thing is a bit useless to me though, all the settings are far too long for my liking so I just use it with attachment pulled off.

    Ceramic trimmer from Babyliss. Does the job and has plenty of different length attachments (of not the best quality - they dig in too much).

    EDIT - Its similar to this one:

    So erm, from what I can gather, all of your shavers are a tad crappy?

    Get bent.

    I normally shave in the evening, so by the morning there is some grow back, nothing really, but it gets back to fashionable stubble length sooner than a morning shave, obviously.

    I don't know if you can get a shaver/trimmer which will leave you with a bit of stubble but also work nicely around the shape of your face. Personally I prefer the leccy shavers with the 3 circles at the top rather than the ones with the single bar (an awful description but I'm sure you can understand) and I've never seen one of that variety specifically for long hairs, they usually just have a long hair trimmer chucked on the side which isn't very versatile.

    Hehe, I've got that as well. Got quite a shock when I got it and realised it was about 4 times bigger than I thought it would be from the adverts :D the fucker's huge!
