No, this isn’t yesterday’s post being recycled (although that would be somewhat appropriate). I’ve just decided to do a little hair-removal sequel of sorts because I not only invested in new shaving cream but had to get a new razor, too. The one under my sink was — to quote the B-52′s — tin-roof rusted.
So after much success with the Preserve toothbrush — I had a dentist appointment on Monday, by the way, and he didn’t seem to notice any difference, nor did he detect my love affair with natural, fluoride-free toothpaste (I made sure to drink coffee beforehand so as to cover up the smell of tea tree oil and baking soda) — I decided to go for the same brand of razors, which are 100% recycled and recyclable.
I appreciate the bright colours, and it gets the job done, but I miss the swivelling head and triple-blade power of Gilette’s Venus; once I even tried their battery-operated razor, which vibrates (I have no idea how vibrating helps remove hair but it was kinda fun, and horrifying, at the same time). Also, I think something like the razor saver is good in theory, but the idea of spending $12 on such a specific eco-gadget makes me irritable.
