Ladies, let’s be honest: shaving is not fun. In the short term, it is less expensive than waxing or laser hair removal. Of course, once the hair is gone, most of us feel better. For whatever reason, smooth legs give us the confidence to rock a gorgeous skirt at the office or on a first date. That doesn’t change the fact that every step leading up to the finished product is often a chore.
I have always believed that shopping for razors is a lot like buying hair dye in a box. The women on the packaging look so happy and beautiful that you convince yourself the experience will be nothing but pleasant. Then you get home, and after attempting to use it, you discover you are allergic to the chemicals in the hair dye. Your scalp is itchy, and your hair is more orange carrot than blonde bombshell.
I have never been good at buying razors, and I am often surprised at how many times you can succeed in accidentally wounding yourself with one. Additionally, like many women, I have very sensitive skin. So, my pretty little bare legs are often subject to razor burn—which is not pleasant, nor is it pretty. All of these factors make that moment of buying a razor incredibly stressful. I wander through the aisle with other bewildered women reminding myself, “This is a necessary evil.”
Recently, I stumbled upon 800razors.com, and I’m going to be completely honest with you—I was skeptical. They advertise a razor and 12 replacement cartridges for $19.95, with free shipping no less! The description claimed the razor was comparable to a Venus razor. That was the hook for me. If it was that cheap and could compare in any way to the only razor that had ever made the act of shaving remotely bearable, then I had to give it a try.
It only took a few days for my first order to arrive. I typically put off shaving for as long as I can. However, I had to try it out as soon as I got home. I was excited to discover that my initial skepticism was incorrect. The razor is phenomenal. There is a little strip around the razor that has aloe in it, so your shave does not even require soap! Seriously, even for people like me with sensitive skin. After my shower, I had nice pretty bare legs without razor burn.
Needless to say, I am done going to the store for my razors. So, if any of you bewildered women in the razor aisle wish to escape with me, go to www.800razors.com and sign up for your first delivery today. Let me know if you like them as much as I did, or if you have any go to beauty products that have changed the way you get ready in the morning!
