You can’t beat the wet shave with the grain in my opinion Magpie. You still get a stubble feel when you rub your fingers against the grain and a slight shadow to blend into the SMP nicely. You can go two days easily (three if your lazy or not going out) before it needs doing again I find.
I use the Wahl Aquablade clippers or foil attachment if I want a quick going over before going out. A bit more expensive at £99 but worth it.
