This is pissing me off so much. Every time I shave, specifically my mustache area, it never looks like I have actually shaved. I don't have this problem with my beard/cheeks/neck/etc. It's only with my mustache. The problem is magnified if I tilt my head back (or if someone is looking at me from below because it presents that same angle). It's like the hair follicles are right there staring out and making it look like I have a little 15 year old boy's fakey-mustache. I have tried shaving gel, foam, soap, etc. I have used double blade razors, mach 3s, shick quattros, and that 5 bladed one, and the single blade on the back of that 5 bladed one. I have gone against the grain, with the grain, and perpendicular to the grain. The thing that annoys me the most is that after I finish shaving, it's perfectly smooth to the touch, even if I rub my finger UP against the grain. Yet when I look in the mirror I have like a fucking shadow right there, and it also shows up in pictures which pisses me the fuck off. It's like it's not possible for me to shave any closer because you can't get closer than perfectly smooth to the touch. So am I doing something wrong or do I just have shitty mustache genes? I've even considered plucking it all. At least that would remove the hair completely so it wouldn't still be visible after I shave, but then I'd get the red bumps and possible ingrown hairs and such. Help OT style crew!!! Oh I'm of northern European descent and I have dirty blonde hair (head) and brown facial hair.
