    Shaving chest foil or rotary?

    Hi I shave my chest and when I use a manual razor like mach3 it really irritates my chest and it shaves very close so I get ingrowns. I still get ingrowns and irritation with a electric shaver but it seems like its alot less. I have had my rotary electric shaver since august and it seems like the blades are getting dull because I am getting more irritation and cant cut close like it used to or at all. Im thinking about trying a foil razor for my chest. Any opinions about this? Ive never used a foil shaver before. I shave my chest everyday or every other day.

    One more thing. Does a 40 dollar electric shaver shave as close as the 150 dollar ones?

    Thanks

    If I wax it I have to wait for it to grow out long before I can wax it.

    I guess ill have it grow out to 1/4 of an inch and hopefully it will work but my hairs on my chest are chest as thick and prickly as the hairs on my face.

    i might shave mine once a month and even then its not close to .25". i use a fusion and have never got more than 1 or 2 ingrown hairs. i would get one or two bad ones on my arms when i had to shave for wrestling (hurts to get them pulled out by dragging on the mats)

    I use hair trimmers with no guard. Too much work to use a razor or wax it all the time. Plus, I don't really give a shat if it's not silky smooth.
