do gentlemen exfoliate?

Are the exfoliating facial creams really necessary, or would a gentleman's routine consist of a good wash followed by a good shave?

ha ha...thanks Glenn! Actually I don't have any blades...excuse my ignorance, I thought a box of blades was a box of blades! Is there a difference? Where would I get the ones best suited for shaving?
