We only use cartridge razors. Actually most of the people I know use them too. We buy new cartridges in the largest packs available to save packaging and money. They work well and use up less space in the bathroom than a pile of disposable razors. It’s an easy decision to make.
I recently started using shaving soap when shaving. It takes shaving to a whole ‘nother level! Once the initial investment in the brush is made it becomes quite economical. The brush came in a recyclable plastic box. The soap comes in a cardboard box that is recyclable. I never felt quite right about all those shaving gels and rarely used them.
Mostly when I am looking for a better alternative I think of what people used to use. My grandfather had a mug full of soap in the bathroom way back when. I chose this soap below and put it in a mug my friend Adele gave me (hi Adele).
For now I am happy with the few changes I have made to my shaving routine.
What kind of shaving systems do you use?
