I am a fast shaver, I am always on limited time in the shower because I'm rushing to shower, hair, make-up, dress, eat, clean, Facebook, email, all during one nap period. Normally, I get about an hour and a half to get all of that done. I need to be quick and efficient!
Part of my pre-baby life was that I wouldn't blink an eye about spending a little extra on little things. I'd splurge on whatever it was I wanted, because really, it didn't matter. Now, it matters. I have to try and save every which way I can.
For the past few months, I've been in search of a razor that could compete with my $14 refills razor. It was a good razor, never cut me, never had any issues at all. But I can't
I've tried about four different brands. From the pink ones, to the orange ones (I even tried my husband's razors) and I was constantly getting those little cuts on my ankle that burn like fire and fill your tub with bloody water so that it looks like you're auditioning for the next Freddy movie. Gross.
Finally, I found the answer. *Ahhhhhh, the angels sing* It's another pink razor but this one, is different. The handle is what I initially noticed. It's kind of got a high arch so that it's super easy to hold, doesn't slip out of your hand, and also gives the perfect angle for a fast shave.
Secondly, I haven't cut myself yet! I'm half way through my package of them and not one cut. That is a miracle in itself. Every brand that I tried post $14 refills, cut me.
Finally, they last! and last and last. I shave daily, pretty much. So I shave a lot. I can get a good two weeks from one razor. Maybe even longer. Now that's nice.
Oh, and finally again, they are
So, what slice of heaven did I find?
