Razor Blades and Cartridges at Walgreens

Shaving is one of the easiest and most popular methods of home hair removal. Using just two basic products-a razor and some sort of lubricant-men can easily remove facial hair while women are able to target the unwanted hair on their legs, underarms, and bikini region. Walgreens has a wide range of products that can be perfectly tailored to fit your shaving needs.

Types of Razors

Disposable razors are typically the least expensive shaving products available. They are designed to be used only a few times before they start to get dull and need to be replaced, which is why they are sold in multipacks. Perfect for traveling, many consumers tend to avoid using them all the time because they don't offer as close of a shave. Many people also don't like having to throw them away after each shave.

A step up from the disposable razor is the cartridge razor. When you shave with one of these products, you can reuse the handle and simply replace the blades whenever they start to get dull. Most cartridge razors are built with multiple blades to give you a smooth, close shave, and this style is easily the most popular among consumers.

Another common product among shavers is the electric razor. Environmentally and financially sound, electric shavers require a bigger investment up front to purchase the unit, but you only need to replace the razor head about once a year. These razors can often be used dry, so you may not need to purchase a lubricant. As long as you maintain your product, electric razors also tend to eliminate the risk of injury while still guaranteeing a close shave. Electric razors are available for both men and women.

Men's vs. Women's Razors

You may think the only obvious difference between men's and women's razors is the colors of their handles. Beneath what is visible to the naked eye, however, there are actually several variations in the designs of the blades that make the shaving products unique. Men's razors have the blades positioned at a much sharper angle because facial hair is very coarse. Women's razors, on the other hand, are designed with finer leg and underarm hair in mind. Their blades are positioned at less of an angle, which helps protect your delicate skin from cuts and abrasions. Manufacturers also tend to change the angle of the razor head when designing products for women so that you can more easily see what you are doing while shaving your legs.

Replacement Blades

As many shavers can attest to, the aftereffects of using a bad razor can be both embarrassing and uncomfortable. Razor burn, cuts, and other irritation can all be caused by shaving with a blade that needs to be replaced. Using a quality product can reduce irritation and razor bumps. Luckily, Walgreens has a wide array of excellent shaving and grooming tools at low costs that will allow you to keep your blades fresh and your skin healthy.
