Gents, do you have a strong beard growth? Are you fed up with the cost of disposable razors - as I am? They don't seem to do a good job for long.

 

Well try going back to the good old Gillette 3 piece Safety Razor and razor blades.

I found it a remarkably clean shave in comparison (its what I started with). I got 20x5 packs blade for a fiver Ebay. A blade can last a week, so thats 2 years worth. I bought a 2nd hand original Gillette blade holder for £3 Ebay. IMHO don't be tempted by the cheap charlie new ones, made of alloy with a steel screw, already rusting.

 

Tip, get in the habit of turning over the blade before starting. The blade gets "stropped" by your skin. This way your blade last 2,3 times longer

 

This isn't just about saving money for me, it is about getting a decent shave.:smile:

My local chemist sells the all plastic 'grandad' version this can then be sanitised. The cost is cheap too. Or if you want to go one step further you can buy a cut throat type one and make the blades ho even further. You split the blade in two so they go twice as far. This razor gives an even closer shave. Give that a try lol...

OH had to buy his Gillette supplies off ebay - I don't understand, why other suppliers don't stock them, there is obviously a market for them.

OBTW

Another money saver in the same vein

 

Shaving cream, expensive innit?

 

Well I got a tip to use cheap generic supermarket hair conditioner cream. It works surprisingly well, smoothes the skin and 1 bottle probably last 6 months - year?

 

Ordinary soap dries out my skin.

 

Now I ask my OH to close her eyes, while I give her a XXX and she says its like the young man she married
