I assume you are talking your daily razor like for shaving legs and armpits? I use the same disposable razor for about 3 weeks then get a new one. I only have found one disposable that lasts this long and works just as good as day one to the last day, Shick for women Quattro.

I love mowing the lawn. Of course I get paid for every one I mow. Maybe that's why live for my phone to ring and someone is on the other end requesting that I mow their lawn today if possible.

How often do you change your razor blades?

When they start to feel dull.

Yay! Glad I don't need to use razor blades now. I just leave it to my trusted waxing salon. Learned a lot from before, when I used to shave my upper lips and got a big cut. Instead of heading to work, I end up not working cause it's so grose to look at.

It can also prevent you from getting as close a shave as possible. So, if you think it might be time to toss your blades, toss them. Depending on your hair texture and how often you shave, your razor should last for five to 10 shaves before it's time to say goodbye.

That's a lot of trips to Egypt or Mexico. Or, are you using the Luxor in Las Vegas??

Same here... I use a badger brush and shaving soap and shave only after a shower, and my blades can go 4 months or so. If I try using shaving cream with a dry face before a shower, this method would not work and I'd have to change blades every 4-5 days. No I don't use a safety razor.. I use a schick hydro 5. Not worth all the extra cuts, effort, and time to use a safety razor.

I buy dollar-store razors, get about one use out of each razor.
