It is becoming very trendy for guys to shave or trim off more than just thier facial hair. In fact many men have decided to shave off all of thier body hair completley. What do you shave or trim and why?

I have a full beard now, so I just clean it up every few days with my electric trimmer. I still do my neck with my Schick Hydro 5.

I have slow growing hair so I don't have to shave often. Usually once every other day on the face and about every three days every where else. With the Shick Hydro, 3 days on the face and 5 everywhere else. Loving it!

The Schick Hydro 5 is incredible!! I was using the Gillette Body razor and there is no comparison! Baby butt smooth wherever you use it! This was just my first shave with it but very impressed. We will see how long the smooth lasts.

panj ... Same here. If my face skin is dry I just use a little vaseline intensive care hand lotion and it works great. Much cheaper than buying specific shave gel or cream.

Haven't shaved totally since 1985. Do a little trim now and then, when the beard gets down below my shoulders, but imagine all the time and money I save whilst you dudes are scraping away and allowing some barber to clip both your locks and yor wallet.

Supposed to be seeing highs around 100 for the next few days and of course with that the humidity. Shaving alone down south is not enough when your out doing yardwork or other outdoor activities. I also use lubriderm cooling lotion. It contains mint extract and really does keep you cool.

The new Gillette body shavers do a fantastic job! No stubble and easy to maneuver!! So far no little red spots so I'd say I may have found a new razor! LOL!

Good to hear your weather is summertime warm now, RenGas.

It's been warm to very hot here for the last few weeks already. Another blistering summer in SoCal, we're so spoiled, lol.

Shaving frequency at max setting! :)

Im finding that with these new Gillette Body Razors, you keep the hair off much longer and no skin irritation whatsoever. I am even more impressed than I was before.
