I have always wondered why men are still shaving using bladed razors. You know…those razors that cost a ton of money in the stores that are used with shaving cream. I use to be one of those men. I used to shave every day with a blade against my throat. It cost me a fortune. I had to shell out weekly sums for the most premium blades on the market, because nothing else worked well for me. I had to also pay for shaving cream. Then I needed aftershave or my face would sting all day long. When I factored the costs I was stomaching to shave myself daily, it really did add up in the end to some pretty pennies. Now there are even some triple-bladed razors that are on the market, which cost even more money. If you were to factor the annual costs of using these, the numbers can be quite large at the end of the day.
About two years ago I started using an electric razor—this teeny tiny one that my mother gave to me for Xmas, which I will refrain from using the name brand of it as I am not trying to plug this product. What I am trying to plug, however, is the fact that electric razors are seemingly the way for me to go. No more cutting myself when shaving. No more tidbits of toilet paper helping razor cuts clot. No more aftershave. No more atrocious monthly shaving costs. In fact, I just replaced my electric razor with a new one, as it finally got dull after TWO YEARS. For about $100 for two years, I notice almost no difference. It shaves my face as smooth as can be. Just like those costly blades did. Does this mean that eventually the bladed razor as we know it will meet its demise?
I have a good mind to think that it does.
