"After several weeks of putting it off, I was finally brave enough to try out my new safety razor after reading an inspiring blog post from Jane & Simple. And it really wasn't that bad! I use mine in the shower with no shaving soap / foam / gel."
A good safety razor will last years and years
Waste from a safety razor is just the metal blade which can be recycled
Blades need to be replaced more often, every 1-2 weeks depending on frequency of use
Safety razors require more delicacy than disposable razors so take a bit more time
A safety razor will cost around £10-£30, although it is possible to spend more.
