Like most women, or adults I suppose, I use a razor with replaceable blade cartridges that cost a small fortune. I’ve tried downgrading to various disposable brands and haven’t found any that feel as nice so I just suck it up. But when I saw this pin claiming to make these beauties last longer I was all over it.
So I poured a whole lot of baby oil on my razor when I started with a new blade. I tried shaving one leg with my regular shaving gel and the other with just the baby oil. I’m sorry to say that I will not be able to tell you whether or not this actually makes the blade last longer because I hated it so much. It felt like I was using a old razor, or at least a cheap one both ways. I was so pissed about it for 3 reasons. First, can’t follow through on the true busting of the pin since it felt so crappy. Second, It felt so crappy. and third, I wasted the brand new razor feeling!! The next time I used my razor, sans baby oil, it felt way older than it is and now I’m stuck with it for a bit because it was my last one in the pack and I’m just not ready to shell out my coveted dollars for new ones just yet.
Bottom line – waste of my time and a new razor :(
Maybe you won’t notice the difference. Or if you do notice maybe you won’t care and will find out if it actually lasts longer contrary to how it feels. I wish you luck either way and will say a little prayer you don’t end up with in grown hairs or razor burn :) But definitely come back to let us know if you’re tougher than me!
My apologies for not coming through on this one but I guess when it comes down to it I’m a bit of a wuss here…
‘til next time
