I use straight razors so shaving in the shower would be unwise. One clip was quite enough.I'm sure this has been covered before but I did a search and came up empty.
I'm curious about how many others shave in the shower? Do you use a mirror? I'm just wondering how unique I am. I see very few mentions of shower shaving and none about using a mirror or not.
I really enjoy shaving in the shower. Yeah, it's a waste of water but I keep it nice and low while I'm shaving. I've got a full-length shower door so the shower gets super steamy and a nice marble bench so it's my "spa" time. I love to sit there in the steam and take my own sweet time shaving.
I have used mirrors off and on over the years, but I like not having one. I do it by feel. I don't cultivate much in the way of facial hair, but can maintain sideburns by using fingers of my free hand as a guide. By doing it by feel I maintain a hyper-accurate map of my whisker growth. I don't really do full passes - I guess the initial one is, but after that I move around my face almost at random getting all the little patches exactly against the grain. I just can't get a BBS without going against the grain and irritation isn't a big problem for me.
