I actually just shaved not too long ago.. got a family polyana/christmas party to go to. I started shaving in the 8th grade (now in the 11th).. first my mustache area then a month later my entire face. I have a really high amount of testosterone in my body, so my hair grows back really quickly (and I am hairy else where, it's a curse really). I have to shave every day.

TheMirageI woudn't post here, I really wouldn't. But the fact that you're 15 and only just started caught my attention. I was shaving at 13. I thought thats when most people began...
My friend didn't shave until he was 14 and had a pretty thick mustache but nothing else... First time he shaved started making his facial hair grow everywhere and withing 2-3 months he was shaving everyday and getting 5 O clock shadows.

That would suck for me. I get inspected around 3:00 PM PST for uniform, and a 5:00 shadow might already start to grow, messing with my grade...
electric shavers are not for everyone. i tried using one and all it would do is irritate my skin. this is due to electric shavers pulling hair instead of cuting it. go for a razor first but dont go for the fancy mach 3 types just yet as it would be like using the electric razor. use single or dual blade disposables and make sure to clean out the cut hairs constantly as you shave. leaving the hairs on the razor clogs it up and dulls the blade.
If shaving is hurting you with the razer you maybe gettint too close. Or if you have curly hair...(as I do) the hair can dip below the skin level once cut and cause razor burn the next time you shave (big puss filled welps)
The cure for both no mater what kind of razor except electric is to shave with the grain (down your face)
It leaves enough of the hair above the skin so as not to take a layer of skin off the surface.
