Shaving in the shower is the only way to go. Get one of those fogless mirrors with the suction cups and your there.
 I have recruited almost all of my friends to shaving their face in the shower.

Marz, Where can you get one of those fogless mirrors? I'm currently a sink shaver, but it looks like you've got another recruit, if I can find one of those mirrors.

With the new litle guy in our lives I've had to adopt the 'braille shower shaving route"...I dig it..

but i think I waste too much water :(..

Nice smooth shave though...and no one under foot ;)!

Darn it, using the shave in the shower/put the headslick on a wet head technique, I just got the smoothest shave to date.  One of those shaves where it just sort of gives you the tingles how smooth it is.  Now I know I have to trust advice on this forum :)  I wonder if it is wasting water though... any Al Gore-esque statistics out there about how many dolphins I killed by taking a 15 minute shower?

I was a shower shaver as well and used the braille method. I to felt like I was waisting water, however I have a shower head that allows you to turn off the flow, so that's what I do.

Now, I have switched over to a DE for my face, so I've reverted back to the sink shaver.

The more you do it, the faster you get.  I don't have  a headblade, I use a Quattro and I can get a baby's bottom shave in about 3-4 minutes.  Practice makes perfect.

Pretty much everything Al Gore has ever said is a lie.

great to hear you got a great shave there zuckermania. You will find that your techniques and tools of the trade will change depending on your mood or time.

See GAS has it down....he can get a smooth shave in 3-4 minutes.

GAS...i have read post where guys are taking up to 20 minutes to get a shave??????  I dunno what they are doing but they must be razin off one hair at a time.  GAS is right though....the more practice...the quicker it goes.  Come on BRO'S....we arent old me yet......cant you move faster than that???

When I first started a couple of years ago, it took a few minutes sure.  Didn't want to bleed out or anything.  But now, it's  no problem.  3-4 Minutes max.  It actually takes me longer to shave in the sink (which I rarely do).
As many of you know, we in Georgia are in a SERIOUS drought.  I have thought about not being sly to save water, but fortunately where I live specfically we are in better shape than the rest of the state.

You will never look back.

Bed Bath and Beyond, Target had them to at one point, I have not looked for awhile.

here are some on the web http://www.shavingdirect.com/Departments/Fog-free-Mirror.aspx?gclid=CKiU4-Ot0I8CFRsFagodWiA_-A

I had the one that pipes into the shower head... not to good, I much prefer the suction cup one I have now.

Awesome, Marz!

I'd like most the mirror with wireless iPod-Connection! Should I send a letter to Santa Claus?

You would probobly be better off sending a check to shavingdirect, but whatever floats your boat.  :D

As I wrote elsewhere, if the Headslick "disappears"  you just wet your hands with a little hot water and rework the scalp, beautiful lather comes back up--and you get to rub your head again to boot!
