Who likes shaving? Hands are not being raised. With the exception of a 15-year-old teenage boy, not anyone with any sanity enjoys the ritual of dragging a sharp piece of metal across our skin to get rid of hair. Plus, it’s so Groundhog Day-esque. You shave, wax, pluck, or use nasty depilatory creams to get rid […]
