Shaving with Tyler

September 18, 2008 Posted by Tyler Cruz

Sit down, young lad, and let me tell you a story. There comes a time in every young man’s life when he begins to grow up and become a man. Let me talk to you about shaving.

I could easily write several pages about how much I hate shaving and how fast new stubble always seems to grow in, but I won’t. Instead, I thought I’d show you guys my new electronic shaver.

Now, I’ve been wetshaving with a standard Mach3 razor for several years now, once I discovered just how much closer and smooth they cut. The only thing I don’t like about wetshaving is how time consuming it is. I usually do 3 complete passes – sometimes 4, and it takes so long that I usually let some stubble grow back and only shave a couple times per week.

My birthday was a couple weeks ago (hey, you forgot!) and Lisa bought me a new electric shaver. Here’s a video showing the shaver, how it cleans itself, and yes – you even get to see me shave!

    I have that same Flip Mino (Market Leverage).

    What the HELL is this post about!

  6. Chris says:

    Hmm, yes, very random post…

    I really do hate shaving… I barely shave once a week (much to the dismay of Mrs. Chris).

    I had a Philips wetshave electric razer and I found I could not use it. The hair on my face seems to grow everywhichway and I had to go over it with a Mach razer after anyway.

    The nice thing about the Philips wetshave razer was I could take it into the shower with me. I hate shaving, it rips up my skin no matter what!

  8. I can’t believe I watched that. I want my 10 minutes back. lol

    You need to try REAL wet shaving. I’m talking shaving with a badger brush, high-end soaps or creams…and NOTHING beats the shave of a double edge razor or correctly honed straight razor. Just try it.

  10. John says:

    uh, yeah I agree shaving sucks, waste of time etc etc. But, you do NOT have a thick beard or fast growing facial hair. In fact, from what I can tell you have relatively little facial hair. If you had that kind of stubble at the end of the day after shaving in the morning then maybe you could say it grows fast. But 2 days later you would expect anyone’s stubble to look that like (or worse).

  11. What a good topic to blog about 🙂

  12. Flipper says:

    Why is there a big M on your Flip Mino?

  13. why would you think we care about this? i have a great shaver but im not about to blog about…are you fishing for content?

    though i do rather a blade….

  14. Dave says:

    Tyler, you need to get your mojo back cause your Alexa ranking is sinking after all your ML pimping and now they canceled some ads apparently, and now you post this??

  15. Why do you people care what the hell Tyler Blogs about? This is – don’t read it if you don’t like it.

    A year ago I blogged about how a Schick Quattro razor I tried sucked, and no one left comments complaining that it wasn’t relevant.

    If you don’t like today’s topic, don’t read it. Damn…

  16. Will says:

    Has this blog become another john chow blog, mostly about food, dinner parties and shaving?

  17. I’m with David on this one. The man is proud of his new razor and wants to share it with his friends. You don’t have to comment about how its a stupid post.

    I’m picking up what you’re throwing down here Tyler. Awesome razor. I will consider it next time I purchase one.

    I pull 2 hairs out of my upper lip wid a tweezer every 6 months. Thats how fast my beard grows and Im already 22. Har.

  19. Laura says:

    I am wondering why??? I have no need for one… hmmm… but I like yours and think of maybe getting my Dad a new one. 🙂 this was a post that makes you go Humm??

  20. ShaverGuy says:

    I want 10 minutes of my life back.

  21. “shaving with tyler cause you have nothing better to do’

    haha…so true 😀

  22. Now i want one like that lol ill have to check out amazon

  23. Tyler,

    How about a friendly challenge.

    I’ll shave with my disposable BIC razor and you use your new electric shaver….first person to finish a complete shave wins.

    Only rule is you have to have a weeks worth of growth.

    Both shaves will have to be captured and posted on both blogs.

    No prizes just bragging rights…

  24. That looks like a sweet razor man. Hope it works better then the other one for ya.

    I know I’m late but um, Happy belated birthday?
