    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.

    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 ...

    Don't Try This

    Never drink orange juice after you cut yourself in your upper lip!!! Trust me, it's not worth it.
