That whole "women's razors are built to handle shaving larger surface areas..." is a bunch of bullshit. Exactly how do you suppose they do that? No, they put cheap razors in pretty packaging for women and charge a premium price. They put quality razors in normal packaging for men and charge a premium price. For the record; both sexes have shitty razor options for cheap if that's the route you want. If a chick wants a good razor, get a men's quality brand and fork over the dough, rinse and clean the blades often, store them properly, and shave more than once a goddam month (once a week at least for you girls, more often if you are a hairy she-beast) if you want the razor to perform at its peak level... and for fuck sake, quit with the long, slow strokes like you see in the commercials for women's razors - that's for selling shitty razors and has no actual real-life application for successfully shaving your legs. Short, quick strokes, rinse often to get the hair and soap out of the blades. Got it? Former competitive swimmer (high school, nothing big) here and I have enough experience as a man shaving my legs to know that the bullshit they feed you chicks in the commercials will dull a razor and give you a shitty shave so fast it will make your head spin.

There are differences between shaving creams, but that has little impact on the razor if the razor is cared for properly and is more of a personal preference thing.

Shaving cream is an avoidable extra expense. When taking a shower, use soap or shampoo in lieu of shaving cream. As long as the water is hot enough. You won't notice any difference. Check the mirror after your shower to make sure you got didn't miss anything.

I've tried this and the soap didn't do as good of a job as the shaving cream.

I think you're right, but I use soap anyway because it works good enough for me, and now I have one less overpriced product that I need to lose money on . . .

Every girlfriend I have had that borrowed my razor stopped buying women's razors immediately after. They were all shocked at how much better mine was compared to theirs.

Whiskers are harder than hair. Mens razors are better.

I don't get any better life either. I've read that the blades' cutting edge gets rusty after a few uses and that is the main cause of dullness. I had a friend who put his razors in a covered container filled with alcohol (no evaporation) that kept them from rusting and he claimed he could use one for around 6 months. I use a safety razor, so it's a lot cheaper and then I don't worry so much changing blades when they need it. Just be careful with a safety razor lol. I get 100 blades for $25 and its a good close shave . . .

Women buy the packaging. It looks better on the bathroom shelf and subtly reminds their men that they are feminine.

The complainers strike me as absurd. I buy whatever will do the job and I toss it into a jumble in the cabinet. There are cheap cars and expensive cars. The companies can charge what they want.
