    I Have a Picky Face

    I guess my face is just really sensitive.  But I basically have to use MY razor and SHAVING CREAM to shave without cutting myself.  If I use a crappy two-bladed disposable razor, I always cut myself.  Usually it's right below the bottom of my jawbone where I ...

    Ugh...

    You know when you're in a hurry, and trying to quickly shave in the shower...yeah, that's never a good idea. I always end up cutting around my ankle area, and of course, being in the shower, it looks as if you are bleeding to death and about to die any minute from blood loss -_...

    Cut Me

    I'm not as good as I once was when it comes to shaving.  Not only when I shave, there's plenty of hair still on my body and I also unitentionally cut myself.  When the water runs on it, it burns.
