My apologies if this has already been discussed–I searched and did not see it.
We seem to be getting inundated with commercials for razors that claim to last longer than Chinese civilization, with the implication being that normal razors won’t go half a shave before they’re useless. Being a chick I can state that, at least in my case, drugstore razors last almost indefinitely due to my (fortunate!) lack of dark or coarse body hair. Mr. Lee uses an electric shaving system–it’s a Braun so it’s verboten in our household to call it anything less–so he can’t speak to the matter.
So I ask you: are drugstore razors really that bad? How long do they actually last? I will obviously take into account that there will be a difference if you shave your scalp as well as your face.
