Learning the use of a Double Edge Safety Razor can aid both yourself and the environment greatly. For about 20.00 or less you can purchase 100 blades which is enough to last you an entire year even if you only use them 3 or 4 shaves. Compare this to the typical cartridge systems of 15.00 per month and you can see the savings immediately not to mention the harmful plastics which will remain in landfills forever. These razors are what worked for generations in the past and were only replaced by the marketing of major companies like Gillette to the current systems which force you to make this monthly purchase and put money in their pockets.
There are several great video tutorials on You Tube that show how to use these razors and shave properly without the pain you currently are experiencing.
