I wanted it right in to the skin but it's too complicated with all this having to use a special razor and get special foam and do all this prep like that guy in the video. The whole idea of me shaving it right in was so i can forget about it and it was easy to do. Also i think you need to use a new blade/razor every shave otherwise you end up doing what i did and leaving big red blotches and cuts all over the place.
Not complicated you just need to obtain the equipment. The safety razor is a one-time cost. The shaving cream you can buy in bulk and so with the razors.
Wahl's aren't that good for close cuts. But in the end do what you want.
Assuming I am right and you live in England here is some examples of how simple this is for you. Meaning you can get all this from Amazon from their UK website.
Kiss My Face Shaving Lotion - See about buying this in bulk

100-count of Feather Blades - look at how affordable that is for 100 blades. You will never buy plastic crap again.

Perfect Razor for beginners: - I personally own this and should have started with this one but didn't.

If you want a long handle version of it: - might be a better choice due to the longer handle

While I own the Merkur 34C this is my first and preferred safety razor and costs a bit more but IMHO it's worth it. Note it's a one-time cost. The razor will probably out live you.

Or just get a GOOD SET OF CLIPPERS! Not Wahl!

Expensive but also will outlive you. I own them myself and they are da bomb!
