58. UPDATE. I tried the damn thing out today...

...and lived to post about it.

Okay, so I shaved one side (legs and pits) with the vibrator turned "on" and the other side with it turned "off," to see if the fact that it is a vibrating razor made any difference. Drum roll, please......

The vibrating made NO difference! At least, none that I could tell. I will say however that I got a significantly closer shave with this shaver than with the regular old cheap disposable, twelve to a dollar pack I usually buy. Although one could probably attribute that outcome to the fact that this razor has three blades as opposed to the one blade that my regular razor has, moreso than crediting the vibrating thing. I would also note that the triple aloe strips made my legs feel kinda slimy (eew).

For the record and in the interest of fairness, I noticed that several people both here and in the Amazon reviews state that the vibrations alone DID give them a smoother, closer shave, but they also noted that they have thick and/or coarse hair, which I do not have. Therefore, it may be simply that my sparse and scrawny hairs are no match for any razor and I'm not a good person to evaluate the relative merits of razors, much less vibrating razors. So there may be something to be said for the vibrating thing after all. Kind of like the electric knife that my Dad used to use at Thanksgiving, I guess. Same principle.

But anyway, thanks to all you guys who checked in and gave me the courage to try out this new gizmo. Though the vibrator thing struck out for me, I MAY be willing to plunk down a little extra coin for a razor with three blades the next time I'm in the market.
