Razor Blades are a big expense and there are some misleading information out there.
The company tells you it is time to change your blade when the top part of the blade (the gel pad) is gone!
That is not exactly true.
My husband shaves his head every two days and his "beard" on a daily basis! So we went through a lot of Razor Blades. After every use he started to gently dry of the blade with his towel and now one Razor Blade lasts for about two weeks even when the gel pad is gone!
I also like to use men shaving blades because they do a better job and they are less expensive. The Razors are not as cute but cute does not save me money in this case.
