I hate shaving. I loathe it. It may be the worst part of being an adult male (which is, you know, not such a bad thing but still...) and I am fortunate that I really only have to shave a couple of times a week for work and such.
After reading the reviews here about a year ago, I went for it and bought the CoolSkin.
I decided that I would follow the instructions to the letter for the first couple of weeks. I shaved every day (horrible!!!) and then after about 10 days, something 'clicked' and it became an actual pleasure to shave.
It takes longer than using a conventional razor, but when you're finished, your face is smooth from the moisturizer and you have no more whiskers. Yay!
If you "let yourself go" for a bit and have longer whiskers, don't worry, it will still work. Don't hold the razor at the ends of the whiskers or it will simply PULL THE BEARD OUT OF YOUR FACE and no one except for a small yet vocal type of person wants that sort of pain in their life. Instead, begin shaving at the edge of the "beardline" and use slow, deliberate circles and you will achieve a nice, smooth, comfy shave.
Make sure you rinse the blades
Do it. You know you want it. Do it...
