Bic Disposable Razors
Disadvantages: They are rubbish
Bic, more well known for making pens than razors and for good reason really. Their pens are value for money, and they work really well. Their razors are value for money and don't work as razors very well at all! I think the reason they chose bright orange as their company colour is as a massive warning, it was as close as they could get to red and we all know that red means DANGER!!
We have all seen the adverts for shaving rashes, how some razors give you a really bad painful rash and you must use this brand cooling lotion to calm your painful face. You would need more than a bottle of lotion to help the burn of a Bic. I have only just thought of this but you might actually be better to try and shave with a Bic pen than you would be with one of their razors. Or you could use a cheese grater, might be a bit gentler on your skin.
I bought a pack of these razors once, no it wasn't for a laugh or a bet or a drunken prank, I just thought they are cheap, lets give it a go. Oh what a way to prove to me how silly and naive I can be. While laying in my bath, I had applied shaving cream to my legs; I produced one bright orange stick of doom out of the packet, I am still sure I could hear the other razors sniggering as I removed the clear plastic guard! Amazingly the razors come in a pack of five, once you have used one, no-one is ever going to use more than one, so the other four are thrown away, they should sell them separately in lonely cruel packs of one that will teach them. I slid the razor up my leg, leaving a cream free strip up the middle of my leg, to my shock; the hairs were still attached to my leg, standing on end now after their nice bath in shaving foam. I gave it another chance and moved the razor again up the strip on my leg, nothing changed. Not being defeated, I tried a different section of my leg, and applied a little more pressure, still no change, it is very good at removing cream but fails somewhat at actually removing hair.
Beginning to get a little frustrated now, I reapplied the cream and pressing quite firmly, went over my legs a few times; just to get my point across. Unfortunately Bic are either stubborn or what's probably more likely a bit rubbish , (that is quite polite for what I wanted to say) Basically, to put it simply, I hacked away at my cream covered legs for what seemed like an eternity, only to have pretty much the same amount of hair as when I started, a few bleeding nicks out of my knees and a horrible painful rash up my legs where I had been applying a bit too much pressure, in the vain hope it might actually cut some hair.
I am sure you might be able to work out I am a little less than impressed at Bics ability to make a good razor, they cant, either use one of their pens or just buy a decent one.
Summary: Try to shave with a hammer then give up and buy a decent razor
