• Razors

    I think that I may have mentioned somewhere else that the company I've been buying my 'semi-disposable' (i.e. you only replace the head) razors from 'King Of Shaves' has committed to eliminating single-use plastic by 2023.

    This got me thinking about how they are returning to the 'old-fashioned' Double-Edged' razor.

    Personally, until I bought one to experiment with last week, I'd never used one before.

    Any Pure Planet members using Double Edged razors, or even the 'cut-throat' style?

    If so, have you any advice you wish to share?

    Is the return to the 'good old-days' really going to help that much or will all this extra shaving cream outweigh the benefits?

  • Hi @Gwyndy
    Nice post!
    I haven't made the move to cut-throat razors yet (not sure I could be trusted to not slit my own throat, tbh) but I have started using old-fashioned shaving soap with a badger hair brush.
    The shaving foams have plastic lining and plastic lids, and they don't last long! My shaving soap (called 'Trumper' or something similar) has a nicer sandalwood smell and lasts forever! (Well, for about six months).

However, for a gorge razor with built in soap and wonderfully smooth shave for pits, legs and Hollywood, look no further 👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • When you said Hollywood was that a euphemism for a South American country, famous for nuts and inflation....
    I hope Badgers are protected in Bath. I have visions of Marc chasing one up the road, scissors in hand.

  • Don't laugh I've got several hair pieces all in the same style so that when people see me they think that the hair piece has grown.
    Its all secured by a chin strap and the Harmony hairspray keeps things neat on a windy day.
