How to you feel about using women's razors? crazy.gif The real differences are the "moisturizing" bars around the razors and the colors.

I have no problem with them. In fact, i might even prefer them because of the moisturizing bar lessening irritation or something? Actually, ive been using those cheap BIC disposable, plastic, 2 blade razors that my mom buys in a pack of like 10. They get the job done, but i feel there might be something better out there, something that shaves easier like making it so i only have to shave over an area once.

 

These are actually the disposable BIC razors i use that i mentioned above

With "moisturizing" razors, you don't need to use as much shaving cream, if any.

 

BiC is probably the cheapest you can get. Store bands/generics would be on par.

Do those moisturizing bars on these cheap razors even do anything? It feels like its just a piece of plastic lol, but then it feels kinda softer sometimes which means its not just a piece of solid plastic, but still seems like a gimmick.

 

Are there any other better cartridge razors out there for acne prone skin though?

The bars are more designed for in-shower use. They melt from the heat in a shower, which provides the emollient feel.

 

Venus Embrace is really nice, particularly for legs. The blades aren't that wide, and it'd take a little longer to shave your face that way.
