    Default Best razor?

    What kind of razor do you ladies use?
    I cant afford laser hair removal now and I find waxing impractical as you have the growth time between each waxing.

    I use a mens razor that has 5 blades. I bought a groupon for laser hair removal years ago and I wound up stopping the treatments after a period of time. It was because they told me I could not tan or spray tan while doing the treatments and I was not a fan of walking around looking pale.

    Don’t know if it’s the best, but the most economically feasible has been Dollar shave club. $9/month for their ‘fancy’ razors in a four pack. I wished they offered womens’ razors, but we’re able to do with what they offer.

    Electric razors… maybe I’ve tried the wrong ones. To me, they never seem to get close enough. I’ve gotten waxed before, but after one episode where the woman doing it cackled hysterically at my discomfort… it maybe put me off from it just a little.
    My hair seems to be seized by the wind
    But I must continue this trip, never looking back.
    Never looking back...

    Exfoliation before+ Gilette Mach 3 or Gilette fusion + Nivea Sensitive shaving Gel+ Avene Cicalfate cream after, for about 3 days, after each shower = no razor burn!

    I use safety razors. They aren’t marketed to women, most women don’t even know they exist. Hell, they’re old fashioned so most men these days probably don’t even know they exist unless they’re part of the “shave geek” crowd. But they’re the type of razor that you need to use the double sided razor thin piece of metal razor blade with. WAY more affordable and a WAY better shave. I use Feather brand razor blades. They are these super sharp blades made in Japan (but can be bought world wide). Your best bet with finding the blade that works for you is to go online and order a razor blade sample pack from Amazon. Feather blades are considered expensive and they still come in at like $0.50/blade, compare that to a frickin $5 disposable razor, which, if you’re like me, you only get a single shave out of.

    Schick Extreme3! 14.99 for 8 razors at Walgreens. There are better, more expensive razors, but this is a very good price/quality option! Until I had my laser hair removal done, I consumed razors at a high rate and landed on this for its good value! This razor can do a full body shave and still be OK. Thats pretty good I think for this price level! In my experience, razors for men are in general longer lasting.
    Even though I don't shave nearly as much as I did before, I still use the razor to take off the tiny fuzz etc.

    Just as important as the razor, is your shaving technique. Best is in the shower, or immediately after, when your hair are soft from water and soap. Don't mind expensive shaving gels, just use normal soap, rubbing with a regular soap bar before shaving works wonders! Easy, simple and non expensive! Some think they have to use shaving gels for moisturizing purposes, forget it. You moisturize after with a good moisturizer cream. Preferably a carbide based cream!

    Being on a strict budget, I use Bic razors, I buy the cheapest ones for my legs and arms etc and the three blade "comfort" razor for my more delicate parts. They’re so cheap I can afford using them only once and I find them to be OK 👍
    I wonder what they think when I buy like 5-6 packages of each LoL 😂
    I would love to have laser though

    I used to like those 'mini razors' they seem to be hard to find.
    I have 2 pink lady shavers, when I get home I'll look for the name
