Look at this thing of beauty! It's the ultimate and perfect combination of form and function. It is gorgeous, well made, feels amazing in my hand, and will last me the rest of my life. Switching to a safety razor lingered on my to-do list for almost a year for a few reasons. Even though the word safety is part of its description, it looked intimidating. It's a pricier item so I wanted to make sure I really wanted it before buying it. I wanted to make sure I would use it and I wanted to be certain I was buying exactly what I wanted. I had plenty of time to think, because I had a few disposable razors and replacement blades for my Mach 3 that I wanted to use up before making the switch. Once all the single use plastic razors were gone, I placed my order through Tiny Yellow Bungalow. I had been following Jessie on Instagram for a while and knew I wanted to support her shop. When it was time to buy it was an easy decision for me. I ordered the razor and a 10 pack of replacement blades. I'm still using the first blade.
I knew I had made an excellent purchase as soon as I opened the package and held the razor in my hand. It was so shiny and bright and it had some weight to it which I have found adds a level of control while shaving. It's simple to open and insert the blade and it didn't take long to figure out the right amount of pressure needed for a close shave. This was by far my favorite purchase and switch of 2017.
PS. I'm in full on winter no shave mode so I feel badly that my razor is being ignored, but I'm enjoying winter no shave mode immensely.
