Three. Religiously.  Even the most aggressive razors I've ever tried, i.e. slants, don't give me a BBS after two, and after three there's no diff.

2 passes and touch-ups. XTG, followed by ATG.

3 full passes with WTG, XTG & ATG will give me red skin on the neck.

Any of you use the pre shave oils ???
Do you think they really help on softening the beard or may be that they actually interfere with the work of the Brush ?
Curious to know what is your opinion about it..

I do 2 passes wtg. The reason for this is i use a shavette and have been getting great results with just wtg. If I try for 3 passes and/or atg. I always regret it and end up with irritation.

With the right prep and razor I can get perfect BBS in two passes.  On the weekends I like a little more leisure time and do a three-pass shave.

I do 3 passes on my cheeks, chin, jawline and neck from the larynx to the chin. The rest of my neck gets 2 passes, as does under the nose and around the lips.

I do two passes, with the grain (WTG) each time.  Then, I do a "buffing" or "clean-up" pass in order to get any spots I may have missed.  Then, twice-a-week, typically on Sunday, and, Thursday, I do a path with the trimming razor.  The moustache/eyebrow razor, as I think it is marketed in North America, by Merkur.

Three for me.  WTG, XTG, and ATG.  If I'm going for a particularly close shave, I'll add a touch up on the upper lip.   Sometimes, for a quick shave, I'll just do two WTG passes.

Always 3 passes with some touch-up.  Since I am retired, each shave is a slow, easy, and pleasurable experience.

Three pass, on the last buff I do some buffing... so 3.5? I probably can skip WTG and straight go into XTG and ATG, but I like shaving so much that I decide to go with it  Biggrin

I usually only do 2 full passes with the grain and a clean up where needed. I stopped going ATG because it causes me too many issues afterward.

Three passes for me: north to south, south to north, nose to ear. Guaranteed BBS with a Feather AC Pro Super blade, or DFS when I'm rushed and stop after the second pass.
