Disposable razors. They are quick, convenient and perfect for those emergency shave situations. But, some women find themselves with questions about these simple, but effective, shavers. How long should you use one? Can you get as good of a shave as you get when using a reusable one? What’s the purpose of a disposable razor anyway? We’ve pulled together tips and useful info about disposable razors to help sharpen your shaving skills.
There are a lot of options.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort or shave quality when using a disposable razor. You just have to make sure you choose the right one. For example, some come with two blades (which is not ideal), while others come with five blades and share the same benefits as refillable razors. Venus® has a range of disposable razors, so you can find your best match! Want three blades and built-in body butter? How about a five-blade razor for sensitive skin? At Venus, we believe the best razors for women are ones designed for women. All of our razors feature contouring blades for your curves and a soft handle that fits your grip – even our disposable razors!
Disposable razors are for short term use.
It’s smart to have a few disposable razors around the house or in your bag just in case. They are designed for one-time or short-term use, so they are perfect for traveling, guests and when you need some backup blades. There’s no hard and fast rule for when you should ditch your blades, but there are some guidelines to follow. Most razor blades will last between five and 10 shaves. Keep an eye on the condition of your razor and replace it at the first sign of dullness or wear.
Old razors can cause irritation.
It’s common try to squeeze out as much life from your disposable razors as possible. But, using old blades can open your skin up to a lot of irritation and increase your chances of getting nicks, cuts and ingrown hairs. Instead, replace your blades at the first sign of dullness or wear to help keep your skin safe and soft.
Apply shaving cream for women.
To help your ladies’ razor glide smooth for an effortless shave, make sure to use shaving cream as part of your process. Simply lather it on the desired area and get ready to roll. Make sure to rinse your razor between short, steady strokes to help keep the blades fresh, clean, and free of any shave gel, dead skin and cut hairs as you shave. Remember: You don’t have to apply a lot of pressure to get a good shave. Venus razors will do most of the work for you!
Reusable razors do the trick.
Disposable razors are less expensive and good for limited uses, but are not necessarily a great choice for long-term shaving care. For a more lasting approach, try a reusable razor. These razors come with a handle and detachable (and replaceable) blade cartridges. The best part is that your Venus handle is compatible with all Venus blades, so you can mix and match!
