Women's Razors

BlackOrchid BlackOrchid
I feel that the cost is going up and the quality is going down. I swear I try all different brands and I try disposable ones as well as ones with cartridges, and I have yet to find something that I love. I hate all the gimmicks they use too, like really what good is a scented handle?
Does anyone have an actual good razor that they could reccommend to me? Or should I try men's razors? My bf had one that I actually really liked at one point.

I use a Venus Embrace myself. Works just fine for me, though then again I don't really shop around for razors.

I actually like some of the Venus disposable razors. Never tried the Embrace.

Womens razors are a joke. I use Schick Quattro razors for men and have for years. No razor bumps or rash amd they last longer. They are also designed for precision shaving so doing things like landing strips and whatnot are easier to do.

Good to know. I've been trying to find a way to avoid getting shaving bumps in Ladyland, with only mild success so far.

I tried a variety of women's razors, only to end up using hubby's! He gets the Gillette Fusion and they're amazing! Women's razors are junk because they can be. They're FOR women, so of course we would buy them! Well, I won't ever go back. Men's razors work so much better!

Yep, yep! A man's razor (some even have a blade on the top for edging) and straight up perfume/dye-free hair conditioner. I have NEVER had razor burn since switching to this method and I shave every other day.

Go for it, they're about $3 cheaper per pack, last twice as long and come with coupons in the box. (The Schick blades, that is.)


There is one downside to a men's razor, if you buy the actual handle and blade together, you'll most likely not like the handle as it's metal and heavier (and colder) than a women's razor handle. BUT, the blades fit on every handle NOT made by Venus.

Exactly. I was going to be flippant and say that womens products are specifically designed to be crap to appeal to the "screamin' laydowns" out there. You know the ones, "oh it's purple!! I GOT TO HAVE IT"...marketing banks on it day in and day out. It's pathetic and annoying.

I totally agree. The "Womans" items tend to be the exact same thing as the mens, but in a "fru fru" color and with the price marked up!

The worst one I've ever seen was the vibrating razor. 'Cause you know, let's put a vibrator on things that can cut you. *shakin my head* It's dumb, dumb, dumb! Oh and the three inch moisturizer strip that will become oversaturated with water and creams and fall off after two uses leaving a skin scraper behind. Men design this crap and it's insane how far off base they really are.

I bought a Schick Quattro for Women Razor, tossed the blade and put one of the Schick Quattro for men razors on it and it's been my system ever since. Plus, we get to share the box so that cuts costs down as well.

We shave daily in the shower and stay "silky smooth" with the Schick Hydro Select Power 5 shavers and gel.

This combo is the best shave we have ever had. Total comfort and smooth, clear skin. Zero irritation. I have one I use for my legs and underarms and another just for more "private" areas, since they have different texture hair. However, for the moment this is the only brand we have at home...and we love them.

I tried the Hydros, they were too slippery for my liking. But, I shave wickedly fast so I probably caused all of the extra sliding that happened.

I have used the same Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle. I'm very picky with the blades that I purchase for it, but I'm otherwise satisfied. I've tried using men's razors before and find myself cutting myself too much. It is also nice to have a trimmer! However, I really really hate the coloration of it. : /

That's amazing. The Venus Embrace has always done a great job on my legs, but I get lots of bumps and ingrown hairs a day or two after shaving my privates. I always figured that that area was just prone to it, since it happened with the cheap disposable razors, too. Never occurred to me to try a decent men's razor.

Yeah, that's unfortunately true. Pink and purple and sparkles and unicorns! Okay, I may have gone a little far there...but I totally understand what you're saying.

I use Schick Intuition and have almost since they came out. I have ultra sensitive skin and these work really well as I don't have to worry about the added ingredients in the shave gel, just the soap on the blade.

I always end up in pain if I use a men's razor. I got the Schick Quattro for women back when it came out in 2006 or so, and just replaced the handle in 2013, because it was finally falling apart from all the water exposure. The blades are crazy expensive, but I'm lazy and almost never change them, so by the time I actually need to buy new ones, I've forgotten how much they cost and have a moment of shock in the store.

What helps me is to use a specialized shave creme (like Coochy), exfoliate, and lotion afterwards. Then my skin is amazingly soft and smooth. I love it.

I hate spending money on razors, so I follow a coupon/discount site and have gotten two free Venus razors, a free Schick razor, and a free Schick disposable. I tend to just find the best deal when deciding what to buy.

Of all the different ones I have tried, I loved Schick intuition. I've tried the comparable Venus + Olay razor but didn't like it as well.

Excellent advice - the conditioner works great - and will save you a ton of $$s.

Indeed. A bottle of conditioner costs $1.50 and lasts for three months. PLus, it softens and moisturizers the skin, too.

I use the Schick Hydro Silk and it works pretty good. The hair on my legs is very thin and doesn't grow very fast plus I don't throw the blade out when the moisturizer strip is gone. I also have heard using olive oil on it helps.

I might have to try this. I always get razor bumps when I shave unless I only shave like once a week.
