    I shave every day. If I wait longer than a day, then it’s just not enjoyable, due to my heavy and fast growing facial hair.

    Every day for me. I like shaving, why skip it?

    I used to shave 6 days a week taking Sunday off. And sometimes Saturday as well. Now that I don't go into an office every day I shave when I want. Sometimes I have to shave back to back because of meetings. But, for instance, I just went the longest time between shaves that I have in a long long time. My last shave was last Thursday, Thanksgiving. So it was an entire week before I shaved this morning. The first wtg pass was somewhat uncomfortable as there was significant pulling on my longish beard. But the 2nd and 3rd passes and touchup was typical of my other shaves. End result was BBS with no weepers. And only a couple stings on my neck from the alum. Nice to be clean shaven again and spent the day faceturbating.

    I haven't shaved in a week, I have a bunch of family stuff going on right now, I tend to put others needs first.
    Normally every other day.

    Like MntnMan62, I recently went a full week without shaving. I haven't gone that long since I started with DE back in the spring of 2013. It's Sunday night now, and I haven't shaved since Friday morning and it's already bugging me. Tomorrow for sure. I find every other day shaving is perfect for me, usually Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the late afternoon around 4-6pm. Then Sunday morning to split the difference before starting over on the next Monday.

    I have to say that I don't like how my face feels with a beard. It gets pretty itchy, something I'm not a big fan of. Why I let it go for a full week has me puzzled. I guess I was just feeling lazy for a bit. But that won't happen again for a very very long time.

    Shave every day for the last 25yrs+ because of my job, I did grow a beard when I went into early retirement for a couple of months(rebel) and have not looked back. I will miss the odd day some times in a year over some situation that I can not get to a shave comfortably location (traveling).

    I guess you could call me a day to day person. Depends on how I feel, or need to shave. Mostly every other day.

    Occasionally i will skip a day or 2 but usually due to letting skin settle down after a bad shave.

    Shave daily for the most part as there are WAY too many great soaps and so little time. Sometimes wish i could shave 5x a day, its one of the few hobbies/passions i have left.

    I like to shave every day, but life is a little hectic at the moment so I’m only shaving 2 or 3 times a week.

    Being an Every Other Day shaver last couple years has worked OK. I'm going to try an experiment - drop back from 3 to 4 passes & clean up DFS/BBS to a 2 pass SAS/CCS. I enjoy my shave time and would like to every day but "chasing the baby" and slower growth doesn't require.

    I shave every day. But I gave up on chasing BBS every shave. I would rather shave more frequently with less passes than less frequently with more passes. So I shave every day (plus my job requires it, and collar shirts are irritating with facial/neck hair). Two passes, one WTG and one XTG with some touch ups. Done.

    Facial hair has historically been considered repulsive in my Tribal culture, so I shave daily--and sometimes twice a day.

    Very occasionally will take a weekend day off if my face is roughed up from a bad shave during the preceding week.

    3 passes every day. I was on travel abroad last week and shaved with a cartridge-- hated it. My face felt raw and I had a rough beard by early evening. It reminded me of just how much better shaving is with a DE.

    The hubby usually shaves every day, though he’ll sometimes skip it on the weekend, For me, it’s 1-2x/week, which works well for legs.

    I was always tuned into a shaving frequency of 1 SHz (1 Shaving Hertz / once per day).
