What it costs: razors

Everybody's beard and skin is different and one man's perfect shave is another's stubble. In an unscientific comparison, Alan Bonini puts his facial hair forward.

It may be one of the least enjoyable tasks men face most days ... shaving. But, unless you choose to grow a beard or go rough for a couple of days, it is inescapable. And while there are a multitude of choices out there - whether wet or dry - most men simply stay with the same routine they've used all of their lives. It is generally accepted that wet-shave razors give you a closer shave, although the choice - one, two, three, four, and even five blades - is bewildering and replacement cartridges can be expensive. The search for a quick-and-easy shave is what turns most towards the convenience of an electric shaver. While they can easily cost hundreds of dirhams, there is no guarantee you will get the shave of your dreams.
