Bic Disposable Razors
Advantages: Cheap, handy, close shave
Disadvantages: Not very advanced
Shaving my legs is something I have to do, I like them when they are smooth and I think my husband would object if I ended up looking like a hairy old woman. However, its not something I really take too much time about and prefer to just shave them quickly in the shower. If I'm actually paying attention and having a nice bath I may shave them better and use my nicer proper razor but for everyday most often than not I just shave them with a cheap razor.
I first used these razors many years ago when I was young. They were the razors my dad used and I remember being a little girl and stealing one out of the cupboard and shaving my legs with them when I was told by my parents that I couldn't. I ended up taking a big chunk of skin out of my leg which took forever to hear but that didn't put me off these razors.
These razors are very cheap and very basic. There is nothing luxurious about them. The handle is made of cheap white plastic and doesn't have a grip on it like a lot of the fancier razors on the market today have. You do need to grip it tightly in order for you to hold on to it. I think the thing about these razors though is that the blade is very sharp, as a plain razor it is very effective and I find I can get a really good close shave with these razors even if it is not the most luxurious shave. There is a razor protector that clips onto the top of the blade, its orange and to unclip it you just pull it off but it does take a bit of pulling so if a small child got ahold of one of these I think it would be quite safe although I do not leave my lying around for that reason.
I'm quite lucky in that I don't really get rashes when I shave, the skin on my legs and underarms is not that sensitive but I do make sure that when using these razors I always do my legs in the shower and put lots of shower gel and water on them first in order to soften them up and get them a bit moisturised first. There is no moisture strip on these razors like you find with other disposable razors aimed at women so I would not advise doing your legs dry and bare as this could potentially hurt and cause some rashes. I do find I can do my underarm hair dry with out using any cream as the razor is sharp enough to just take off the short hairs and not irritate my skin.
I actually find these razors are great too when you go away for the weekend. I never like to take my good razor with the expensive blades with me as I have in the past left it on the side of the bath in the hotel and forgot about it so its handy just to have some in an overnight bag, that way you don't forget to take one or leave it in the hotel.
The razors only last a couple of shaves as if you leave them with a bit of water on in the shower or bath they do go rusty quite quickly and loose their sharpness but they are so cheap, about 20 pence per razor that you can afford to throw them away after a few uses.
