All women…at least American women…want to have well-shaven, silky-smooth skin on their legs, armpits, and bikini area. And the best results almost always result from using the best razor for the job.
Benefits of using a quality razor, as opposed to a cheaper razor, include saving you money in the long run, reducing the risk of skin irritation and razor burn, and giving you better results for your efforts.
Electric razors, such as this Panasonic ES2207P Ladies Electric Shaver, are another option for shaving. These razors reduce the risk of getting cuts, burns, and nicks. They are especially great for women with sensitive skin.
Factors to consider when choosing the “perfect” razor include whether or not the razor comes into contact with your skin too much, if the razor creates a close enough shave, how much control you have over the razor so that you can avoid accidentally cutting yourself, and if there are conditioning and smoothing strips.
These moistening and conditioning strips will moisten the area before the actual razor blades pass over the skin and help avoid any skin irritation that might result from shaving.
There is much debate as to whether disposable or refillable razors are best. While disposable razors are a lot cheaper, they aren’t always a good value over refillable versions.
Even though refillable razors are typically going to be more expensive than disposable ones, they have a longer useful lifespan than disposable ones and cost less to replace. Refillable razors are also typically made with higher quality blades and handles.
Personally I have found the best razors to buy are the Gillette Swirl HydroSilk, Gillette Venus Embrace, Schick Hydro Silk Trim Style Moisturizing Razor, and Gillette Fusion ProGlide.
