One of the many things that stinks about being a girl is having to shave our legs. Yes, I realize that I don’t have to because it’s a personal choice, but I just find the task time-consuming, annoying and sometimes frustrating. Not to mention that quality razors can be pretty expensive if you add up how many you use a year.
I love trying any new product, especially a new beauty product, so when I received these razors from 800razors.com, I was excited to try them out. Well, just about as excited as one could possibly get about shaving. 800razors.com sells American-made razors that compare to Fusion, Mach III and Venus- for about half the price.
After using the razors 3 times, I feel they are just as good as the more expensive brands. I didn’t have any razor burn, I was able to get 3 uses (and probably more) out of the one refill, and the shape of the handle was really comfortable to hold. Not to mention the fun packaging that the razors came in- which is a major thing for a visual person like myself.
So if you’re looking for a new razor to try, I suggest sticking to your budget and trying out one of the 3 models they offer. With that being said, I figured I’d share 3 of my personal tips for the best shave.
Shaving Tips for Women
- Take your time. I always want to rush the process because I find it annoying, but going too quickly leads to cuts or razor burn- both of which hurt and aren’t attractive. I’ve found that listening to the radio (or my iPhone) in the shower helps the time go by faster.
- Don’t shave everyday. In my opinion, it’s just not necessary. Taking a day (or 4) off in-between shaving prevents your skin turning raw from constantly shaving/exfoliating. I find that this also helps give me a closer shave.
- Never dry-shave. This one is a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at how many women try to pull it off. Your skin needs to be wet and warm for an adequate shave, so stand in the shower for a few minutes before even shaving.
