So you have your new Safety Razor ready to go, or are considering making the swap from disposables? We have put together some lesser known tips and benefits to help get you up to speed. Read on!
1. Getting that close, smooth shave
Unlike disposable razors that often cause irritation, ingrown hairs, and razor burn, Safety Razors offer a close and smooth shave with minimal effort. The design of your Safety Razor allows for a single, sharp blade to glide effortlessly across your skin, reducing skin irritation and results in that smooth feeling. The main difference you need to get used to is shaving with gentle pressure. Let the weight of the Safety Razor shave for you.
2. Shave & Save
While the upfront cost of a reusable Safety Razor may be higher than a disposable razor, it is a worthwhile investment in the long run. Our Safety Razors are built to last, with only the need to replace the cost efficient Safety Razor Blades every 5-15 shaves. This eliminates the recurring costs associated with disposable razors or those pricey cartridge refills, saving you a significant amount of money over time.
There are a few Safety Razor accessories that we live by. The Razor Stand gives you a safe place to store your Razor and helps the water to drip off rather than pooling. The Razor Travel Bag is an essential when taking your Safety Razor out of the house - pop it into the bag with the blade fitted and it goes right into your toiletry bag, keeping everything organised and keeping hands safe. The Shaving Bar gets nice and foamy and is a great natural alternative to shaving cream, and make sure you have plenty of spare Razor Blades on hand. You can get these items in the Low Waste Shave Kit together or they are available separately.
4. Sustainability Cred
Disposable plastic razors create a bunch of unnecessary plastic waste that ends up in landfills and oceans. By using a Safety Razor, the only waste that you are creating are the blades. These are made from hyper recyclable stainless steel and we even take those back through our Razor Blade Take-Back Program.
5. Improved Skin Health:
Disposable razors can strip away the skin's natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. In contrast, Safety Razors provide a gentler shave, allowing your skin to retain its natural moisture. The single, sharp blade minimizes the chances of clogged pores and ingrown hairs, resulting in smoother and healthier skin. Many individuals with sensitive skin prefer shaving with Safety Razors.
6. Minimal Maintenance:
Maintaining a reusable Safety Razor is straightforward and hassle-free. After each use, simply rinse the Razor under running water to remove any residue. Regularly disassemble the Safety Razor to clean it more thoroughly, which takes a minute or two. Replacing the Razor Blades is quick and easy (check the video out here) and make sure you are storing your Safety Razor somewhere safe where it won’t fall on the floor! With proper care, your Safety Razor will remain in excellent shape for years to come
