my inner Shrek

Having had a beard for almost 40 years now, today I decided a midlife crisis experiment: shaving. I bought 5 disposable razors at AH, some shaving foam and had a go at it. Here's the result:

As you can see, I got in touch with my inner Shrek. It took the combined effort of an industrial strength hair trimmer, 2 of the 5 disposable razors and 45 minutes to get this result. And my chin is still not as smooth as a baby's bottom... Besides, after shave lotion stings like hell. It smells nice, though. Conclusion: too much effort for too little gain. I think I won't shave for another 40 years.

Midlife crisis for real man! First you put yerself on Hyves and now this, bloody hell hehe. Personally I liked the beard on you. I will have to get used to this for a bit.

I never use aftershave coz of the stinging.

I think you look younger, but the beard gives you a look of more authority and wisdom. I'm just so used to the beard that it looks odd like this. I vote for a trimmed beard, though a few weeks of this and I'd easily get used to it. However, you'd have to shave all the time and that's quite time consuming, you could be reading books in that time and acquiring more knowledge.

P.S. About the aftershave and stinging, my best tip is to use a few dabs of Nivea Cream instead. It moisturises and doesn't sting.

You do look a lot younger but you look less like a sea captain ;)
