“To shave or not to shave…..that was my question”
As I bloomed into womanhood in my late teens (yeah I was a late bloomer!) I started to develop thick coarse “excessive” body hair. No one else in my family faced this because they didn’t have it. So I attributed this gift to be from my European ancestry, on my dad’s side of my family :)….thanks!
It wasn’t until college that I decided to remove it, for hygienic as well as for cosmetic reasons. I was met with little to no support! And my mother, was downright offended!
So, it was through the process of trial and error that I discovered that shaving with a razor, yielded the best results, for me.
Which brings me to whole reason that I am posting this review today. I think that I have found the love of my life!!!! You see, I prefer razors that are made for men, because they provide a cleaner and closer shave, they are sturdier and of an all around higher quality.
Over the weekend, I bought the Gillette Fusion Proglide Power Flexball razor. (Wow! That’s a mouth-full!) It normally retails for about $14, however, my “frugalness” would not allow me to pay that price. I found it on sale at CVS for $8.99. When I went to the Extracare card kiosk, it printed a $2 off coupon for the razor and I had earned $5 in extra bucks from my prescription program through CVS. So my final price………was $1.99 plus tax!!!!!!
Okay, so on to the meat and potatoes. The performance of this razor has given me the best shaving experience yet. Have you ever had a razor where you could start shaving from your ankle and shave clean to the top of your leg?…..With one stroke? Well with this one, I could. This razor allowed me to remove the hair over broader areas of my legs with longer strokes, cleanly. I wasn’t limited to short multiple strokes over smaller areas. There were no nicks, no skin irritation and when I rinsed the razor, it rinsed completely clean after each stroke! Amazing!!!
I know this is not the most intriguing topic, and not my usual topic of choice. But, I am about helping people get on the frugal road to a better quality of life! Besides, I couldn’t keep this to myself:)
HAPPY FRRRREEEEE HUNTING!
