I shaved after not doing so for 33 or so days. http://www.barryschwartz.org/2016/05/gif-i-shaved-after-5-weeks.html
I didn’t shave for about five weeks and then I did. Enough said. Google Photos rocks at making these GIFs quickly.

+Barry Schwartz Thanks for the share. Just a few corrections:

- I don't work for Google (I assume that's what you meant by 'Ivan Yudhi from Google')
