I have been "around the world" when it comes to shaving. My first was about 60 years ago.
My dad always used a Gillette double side razor with blades what could be "flipped" to gain a day or too.
I started with similar razor with the ultimate at the time (stainless steel) double edged Gillette blades. After that I tried all the "new" and "better" systems available. I did use a Braun foil razor from Germany the was heads above any other electric razor, but the floating multi-head Norelco razors were not too too bad. I always had a wet shave razor available for a good shave.
Since then, I have every possible blade system "gimmick" that Gillette comes up with and almost free razor that is incompatible with all of the systems with planned obsolescence.
I now am back to a basic Gillette Atra that is small, light and also trim and I can still get the blades and they are a dollar or two cheaper the the fancy models with pivoting, swivel blades powered by battery that shakes/vibrates them and does not allow any trimming to speak of. I use Nivea Shaving Gel after a good face wash and then do not need an after shave conditioner.
Somehow, there is something about a good shave that leaves yo fresh after being forced to look at yourself "eye to eye" in the mirror for a couple of minutes.
I use a electric beard trimmer. Either rock the stubble look or shave with a blade. I just buy a pack of name brand disposable's. One 12 pack will last a year or more. One small can of barbasol from the dollar store has lasted for over year maybe two.
