I don't shave. I will trim my beard every week or 2 so I keep it looking nice but I haven't shaved in over a year.

If I'm going for the clean shaven look, usually every 2-3 days. If I'm growing out my Commander Riker beard I usually trim that every 2 weeks.

I shave the sides of my face and my neck once per week. I trim my mustache and chin-beard once per week.

I don't shave, but I maintain with Raid spray every now and again.

Haven't shaved since February, have a decent goatee but I can't seem to grow anything on my cheeks which really makes me mad.

When I don't have a beard, I shave once a week. By the end of the week I have a nice stubbly look going. Then I shave it off and start the cycle over again. When I have a beard, I just shave my neck and neaten up my neck line once a week or so.

Once every two to three weeks. I have very sensitive skin and don't shave unless I really need to.

@the_bi99man: That's so fucking creepy, made the hair on my body stand on end...

On topic, twice a week I guess.

I have sensitive skin so shaving everyday is really painful. Mostly every 2-3 days but after 2 days I already look like I haven't shaved in a week =P At least it looks nice and even, not all patchy...

Every three to five days. I'd do it more often but it's not comfortable.

This. I look best with a beard shadow look going on but its not something you can really maintain.

I don't shave I use clippers, razors give me horrible skin, i usually grow a full beard and moustache it gets quite thick, then I trim it all down to a grade 1 so it's not totally clean shaven. It takes 10 years off me.

Sometimes once a week but sometimes I let it grow for a few weeks while keeping it trimmed.

I shave with a Fusion Sunday night and from Tuesday to Friday I use an electric razor. When I was 18 I could go three days without shaving before it would show.

Every other day. And this good too, because with the cost of replacement razors these days (I use the Gillette Mach 4 Turbo), I'd be broke a helluva lot more quickly.

How do they figure that $18 for 8 replacement cartridges is a fair price? Thieving bastards.

Every three days. Sometimes I'll wait longer to get a closer shave.

And sometimes I'll just be lazy and not shave (like now).

Every 2 - 3 weeks with an electric trimmer to keep the beard shortened down.

I trim whenever I look in the mirror and notice my facial hair is growing out of control or on special occasions. I could go a month without trimming to trimming once a week...

I shaved for the first time in like 4 months yesterday. I had a pretty nice beard going, but my boss finally asked me to shave it. Said it was starting to look unprofessional and too wild. So I trimmed it. Still a pretty full and healthy beard, but just much shorter and neater.

For the ones who do clean shave, what do you use? Electric razor, cartridge, etc...I've used a Mach 3 since I started shaving and recently switched to a Fusion but my skin gets so irritated afterwards that if I need to shave 2 days in a row I'm screwed...I've been thinking of buying an electric razor but those are never good for the clean shave look.

A few days ago I started reading about DE's and pretty much everyone who uses them swears by them. Does any of you uses them, and if so, what are your thoughts?

Same here. Shaving is the worst and I grow a ton of facial hair. But I hate facial hair on my face more, so I have to shave.
