Recently I went to Walgreens to purchase my shaving supplies. I went with the house brand disposables and am now regretting it. I was trying to spend less but I had bought the disposable Schick brand in the past and like them. I have not had the Walgreens disposables for long now but they have cut my chin and neck and I have thrown two out already. When I used the Schick brand I could go well over a month, maybe longer than two months, before tossing it. They have a solid feel to them that I felt said "quality".
Clark Howard has mentioned more than once that he can go a year on a disposable razor. That is pretty amazing. Maybe he uses Schick but he can not be using Walgreens.
I use a shaving brush and soap to foam up my face. I find this to be the most economical set up. It is also suppose to get the hairs on my face to stand straight for shaving. I haven't used a Barbasol can in years. I've heard there are some bad chemicals in there.
It would be my preference to shave every other day as it is nice to have a little more beard to cut off. Now that I am back into an office routine, I feel compelled to shave each morning. I do this right after taking a shower.
In a past work experience I had a full beard for at least two years. It surprised me that facial hair was allowed in that office. I would have expected them to have required no facial hair. Where I am now, I don't think anyone is wearing a beard.
I am pretty happy with shaving each morning. I actually like the experience. It makes me feel put together.
