Don’t Waste Money On Shaving Foam Gel And Lady Razors

Updated on July 8, 2009

If you are looking for ways to save money on stuff you use in the bathroom, there are a few simple things that you can incorporate into your everyday routine that will have very little effect on how you look and feel but will definitely have a positive effect on your purse.

Today everyone is trying to cut down on their spending and to live with a budget conscious attitude. Those who are really trying to reduce their spending have found it easy to spend less on frivolous non essentials while others have struggled to give up on the daily cappuccino.

Here are two things that you could do to save money on bathroom stuff.

Don’t Buy Lady Razors

There are some beautiful disposable razors on the market that have been specifically designed for the female market. In other words, they are pink and blue in colour. If you watch the commercials you are promised beautiful moisturized skin if you use a particular brand.

Have you noticed that lady razors are 2 – 4 times more expensive than the mens ones and they are made by the same company? We are being exploited people. Stop paying for the extra packaging, the extra colours and the extra advertising. You can pick up a bag of 10 cheap disposable razors that do the job just as well for a fraction of the price.

A Short History Lesson

The disposable razor was invented by an American called King Camp Gillettte (wow what a name) in 1901.He invented the safety razor, realised that a good profit could be garnered and went on to mass produce cheap razors for all to buy.

Naturally other people followed suit and there are now a whole host to choose from. Companies include Wilkinson Sword and the ever popular Bic Razor with its distinctive orange and white colours.

Don’t Buy Shaving Foam Gel

Another way that you can save money is to dispense with the purchasing of shaving gels and foams.

There are a plethora of products available on the market that you can buy to shave your legs, underarms and bikini area. You can go along to any local drugstore or supermarket and find whole aisles stacked to the roof with shaving gels, shaving foams and shaving creams. They all seem to promise to moisturise the skin and provide healing qualities but since you don’t keep it on the skin that long, how much healing powers can they really have?

If you are looking to save money, you could actually forgo this expense and just use your shower gel. All you need is a soapy consistency and you are good to go. People usually moisturize their skin after they have toweled themselves dry so any benefits gained from shaving creams would have been lost anyway.

Short and sweet – if you want to save some money lose the expensive lady razor and shaving foam.
