Not only can double-edged (DE) safety razor blades give you a great shave, but they can also save you money too and are more environmentally friendly than other shaving options. The fact you’re using just a single blade, means that it’s less harsh on your skin compared to disposable and electric razors with multiple blades. You’re less likely to get shaving bumps, irritation and in-growing hairs as a result of shaving with a single, DE blade.
You can pick up a pack of Tesco 10 DE safety razor blades for around €2.85, which means one razor is around 29c and you get four to six shaves out of one DE blade. You get a nice, clean shave from these blades and I’d recommend them. I discovered that you can be paying up to €35 for an eight pack of cartridge blades in the same supermarket for an electric razor by a well-known shaving brand. That’s €4.38 per blade cartridges!
Trends change over time. It’s kind of the whole point of them. However, some trends can carry over from season to season. We do like to get our money’s worth from our purchases, and fashion is no exception. So, it makes sense to go for trends that aren’t too over the top, that won’t look out of place six months later. If a certain trend catches your eye that you think may be a fad than either don’t invest in it at all (duh) or take a visit to a trendy high street retailer that won’t break the bank like, Zara, H&M, H.E. Mango, Uniqlo or Penney’s and see if you can pick up something there.
Here is a list of five trends for autumn/winter 2018 that are worth investing in, that will last the test of time.
