Van Der Hagen Safety Razor

"Be a Lady, Shave like a Man!" 

I shave every single night! I know a lot of my lady friends that think I am insane for this, but I simply cannot stand the feel of prickles while I am trying to go to sleep! As you can imagine, because of this, I go through tons of disposable razors through the year! At $8-$9 a pack, that really adds up! Recently, Van Der Hagen reached out and asked me to review their Traditional Safety Razor.

This razor is VERY heavy duty, just like in the old days. In fact, as I was shaving I imagined what it would be back in the 1950s shaving me legs (ha!) The short handle allows me to have better control over the razor, and adding the blades was really simple! I was a little intimidated by the razor at first and very gently took my first stroke because I did not know if it would nick me, but it didn't! Needless to say, I began to shave like I normally would and had no issues at all! It left my legs feeling smooth! Even without the "moisture strip" that comes on my razors. Here is a little description about the razor:

  • Chrome plate brass construction
  • Short handle for better control
  • Butterfly opening for quick blade change
  • 5-Ice-tempered stainless steel blades
  • Teflon coated blades made in Solingen, Germany

The razor itself is available on Amazon for $24.97 so it is a fraction of the price of other traditional razors and I love that you can get replacement blades at Target for $3.99! It is convenient and MUCH MORE affordable that the disposable option I have been using!
