Metal Safety Razor - this one has a butterfly opening - twist the bottom and put in the blade then twist shut. The thought of safety razors are a bit scary but the reality is they work very well and aren't scary at all, of course you will take it slow for a start until you get the hang of it then you will be away, a cleaner, closer shave!
With this one just make sure that before use it's nice and tight (if it's loose more of the blade will come out). The razor comes with 5 Blades (Astra, please specify if you would rather Shark brand). Extras can be purchased separately. Add a shaving soap for a discounted cost of $7.
A tip from the trenches: Use an elastic band to wrap around the handle again and again to make a grip. These can get slippery in the shower and get dropped!
So - I still take my time and am careful but I’m delighted at how well this plastic-free razor works. Thank you!
It's taken me decades to get round to trying a safety razor, but now I have, there's no going back! Takes a couple of goes to get the hang of it (I was far too cautious at first) but now it's just as easy as using the multi-bladed plastic horrors. And no plastic bits to throw out all the time, it's definitely a win all round. Comes in recyclable packaging too. 100% recommended.
I love this product, good price for what its worth, never get razor bumps or ngrown hairs. Would 100% recommend
So easy to use, gives a great close shave & last forever. Love it. The butterfly opening makes it so simple to change blades.
