So, I'm a waxing kinda gal. Waxing leaves you smoother and the results last longer. But sometimes I don't have time to wax. Well, almost all of the time I don't have time to wax. It can also be painful, messy, and expensive. So when I want to be hair-free, I almost always do the lazy cop-out by turning to the razor. (except when it comes to the nether regions, of course...but that's a whole 'nother topic)
I've tried every version of the Venus, I've stolen my husband's Mach 5 (both by Gilette), and I've given Schick's Intuition a go once or twice. I mean, they've all been fine, I guess. I've never actually had a bleeding cut from a razor, but I've had minor skin irritations from too-close shaves.
Well, my general opinion of razors has improved since getting one of these in the mail:
I ordered some clothes from either Alloy or Delia's over a year ago and they gave me a Quattro disposable razor as a sample. It had been collecting dust in a corner of my apartment until about a month ago when I was in a rush and needed a quick hair removal option. I haven't even looked at another razor since. I was very impressed. I mean, they're nothing fancy to look at. Aside from the pastel colors, there are really no gimmicks, in fact, they almost look kinda generic. However, I pretty much get the smoothest, most comfortable shave I've ever experienced with the Quattro. Whodathunkit?
Love it! Now that I've got these babies, I'm even more lazy to wax. Oh well, whatever works.
