Men's or Women's Shavers/Razors?

I am female and prefer the razors designed for men. I think they work better adn are less likely to nick and cut me when shaving. My boyfriend prefers the female shavers sometimes, but usually uses the male shavers. He said the female ones seem to shave better for him. What do you prefer, as a man or a woman?

I prefer an epilator. It hurts at first but then after a few weeks, you don't even notice if you have a good epilator. I haven't shaved in awhile but when I was shaving, I used womens razors. The mens were just too harsh for me and I always seemed to cut myself with them.

Even the word "epilator" sounds scary! LOL -- you must be brave!

I shave with an electric razor so I don't worry about nicks and cuts.

I never really cared for electric razors. I don't think my skin feels as smooth or silky after using them.

what is the difference betwen men and women razors? some women prefer men razor , why is that? is there any difference? both razors - for men , and women seem to have similar blades . they ofcourse differ in design and color. mens are usually blue and womens' pink ... :) .. thats the only difference i have noticed.

I have noticed a difference in the thickness of blades as well as how the head holding the blades pivots during movement. Color has nothing to do with efficacy.

as a female, there's no question that male razors are better. the more blades the better and i think they are designed for thicker hair than women's razors. i prefer them cause they give me a closer shave and i barely ever cut myself with them..women's aren't so good.

I use the intuition plus, it's a female razor. It's a 3-in-1 razor that lathers, shaves and moisturises in one easy step.

I like the men's razors.I am a old man with years of shaving so, my face hair is hard to cut.
