My facial hair is really annoying. Whenever I shave it, like within half a day I already have stubble. Are there any kind of products I could use to keep smooth? :<
These products (http://www.hbees.com/hairnomore.html) sound almost too good to be true but for $19.95, it may be worth a shot.
Other than that, I'd recommend you start a men's skincare regimen that allows you to have a closer shave. Neutrogena makes a great men's line of products that is comparable to Clinique for Men or Aramis Lab Series. My boyfriend uses them whenever he's too lazy to go to Clinique counter or Sephora and I love the quality of Neutrogena products.
Start out with the Skin Clearing Face Wash (http://www.neutrogena.com/men/MenDetails.asp?ID=143) (salicylic acid to prevent breakouts and ingrown hairs; also helps resurface skin texture) and follow it up with Daily Face Scrub (http://www.neutrogena.com/men/MenDetails.asp?ID=139) (softens hair for closer shave). Apply the Razor Defense Shave Gel (http://www.neutrogena.com/men/MenDetails.asp?ID=141) and use the Mach3 razor! :) Follow it up with Razor Defense Daily Face Lotion (http://www.neutrogena.com/men/MenDetails.asp?ID=140) to soothe any razor irritation and moisturize the skin. If you keep this up, not only will you be stubble-free (for a day or two anyway) but you will also have nice clear skin too. :D

i suggest you pick up a copy of "The Fab 5's Guide" (by the guys of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy). There's a good chapter on grooming, and at least 10 pages on shaving. :p
If you don't want to buy it, just flip through it the next time you're in a book store. I promise you'll learn something :)

I wouldn't use any of those hair removal products on my face as the skin there is more sensative than other places (like arms and legs) and the hair on your face is a different kind of hair than your arms and legs.
I should try out all the Neutrogena products for a while and see how that affects my face... so next time I go shopping... I'll look for them.
Still... words of wisdom... Do *NOT* wax your face... you'll be red for at least a day or two, and you might have some inflamation as well... I'm still trying to make my face strokeably smooth as well, so I'm looking for the best possible way too.
