I have two ideas to help you get a closer shave, but I will mention only one in this post. The next will be posted separately.
This idea is for a shaving razor with a magnifying lens attached to it, so you can see all the small hairs that you may have missed and go back over the spot as needed to
I do realize that this may not seem necessary to some people, who will undoubtedly point out that you should be able to feel any unwanted hairs with your hands. I have two things to say to that:
1) The moisturing strip on most razors leaves a slick, almost slimy coating on your skin which covers a lot of the smaller hairs until it dries.
2) Not everybody's fingers are as sensitive as yours, and some people genuinely cannot feel small, unwanted hairs that may not be visible until later.

This allows you to look through the magnifying glass via the mirror, so you don't have to magnify the whole mirror. As far as shaving *in* the shower... I dunno, I just don't like doing it.
