As some of you may be aware (hopefully), I let my facial hair grow. I don’t know if you’d really call it a beard since I trim it back with hair clippers on the zero setting each Saturday. By the end of the week it’s long-ish, so I guess you would call it a beard after all.
I often don’t bother using razors to shave, since I can just keep all the growth even and maintained easily enough with my weekly routine. Occasionally I’ll have to actually shave and shape my beard. Like all men, I hate shaving.
Two years ago I bought myself some quasi-fancy Gilette blade. I think it’s a Mach 3. That razor and the three included spare razors have lasted me until now. No, I don’t shave that often.
Deciding to be cheap (and not wanting to fork out $10-20 for more razor heads) I went with a small $5 pack of disposable Gilette razors. The quality differentiation is painfully obvious, as I found this morning. I completely forgot how bad disposable razors actually are.
I’ll be saving up some money then getting my new Mach 3 blades. I suppose $10 for 2 years worth of shaving isn’t so bad.
