Allright what is up with the price of Razor Blades
This is for both us Guys & the 2 members of the Female persuasion, cause they (you ladies
) usually shave too.
I don't shave very often, maybe every 3 or 4 days & it may have been a while but...........
Give me a break!! Are they seriously charging $20- for 8 cartridges?? I'm pretty sure last time I payed for a pack of 25 blades it wasn't $49.99!!
So gang, when did this happen & does anyone know why? Are they using Palladium or something now??
One thing for sure is, I know why guys aren't shaving as often, unless you can use an electric razor, it costs way too much! Well, I'm betting the cost of the electric replacments are pretty high too. Right??
Nar, there aint much you're gonna need with an electrical shaver.
If you get yourself a Braun (twin foils) or Phillips (tri-head) you'd be golden other than needed some pre-shave and aftershave balm to reduce irritation.
They come with a little cleaning brush, you just pop the head off and empty the cuttings everytime you use it, and brush away any around the cutters to prevent clogs.
Most come with a trimmer that flips up from the back, I definitely suggest one of these, I only shave every few days also and the normal shaver will only get to your hair once it's trimmed (if it's anything like mine).
I actually just use a trimmer as I'm pretty rugged.
I will use a foil at least once a month to get a clean shave and get my missus swooning though.
As far as blades are concerned, I used to use a Gillette Fusion Stealth and the blades were Â£8-9 for 4 (14-15-ish Dollars?).
Started out electrical as a kid, went on to wet shave throughout, went back to electrical.
I don't cut around my adam's apple when the blade's start to blunt anymore, plus side.
