hell, I'd buy that additive even if it was once a week.
not being able to grow a full beard = most annoying thing ever.

it's so easy to irritate the skin when it's a half beard.

AEO, I have that same issue of not having enough beard to grow a decent one. I end up looking like an America's Most Wanted poster. Plus, in the last year what I have has turned mostly gray.

stomach hair getting caught in the belt buckle is also no fun

I'm not *that* hairy. But my GF likes me body shaved... and I like the way it feels so the fact she likes it is a bonus.

only problem with a product that works on hair... it'll work on nails too.

for the OP:
from the eyebrows down it all gets clean cut (usually), or at times some parts will get trimmed... 'armpits and a few other areas work better for me with a little left there, but in general I take it all down.

Clearcut is my preference, but when I have an SO their preferences almost always take precedence in this area... not having had one for some time now, I currently do what I like.

I use a #2 trimmer guard from the neck down, and shave my face and legs every morning.

the trimmer is used weekly, but the legs and face are shaved daily.

  1. requires you to not be lazy and let the hair grow too much before using it.
  2. doesn't work any better than a shaver.
  3. takes more time than shaver.
  4. it hurts, but if you're sadomasochistic, you'll enjoy those endorphins.
  5. can cause redness right after you used it on a spot.

on the brighter side, it leaves almost no leftovers so your skin is very smooth, like after waxing

I think this is a generational thing. Frankly it never occurred to me or the Mrs. to shave that area.
