Have you ever wondered if using a disposable razor was the right choice for you? You are not alone; more and more women are transitioning from disposable shaving methods to trimmers and we think we have figured out why. Keep reading to find out five reasons why you should consider ditching your disposable.
First, the environment.
Every year, over 2 billion razors end up in the landfill. This does not even account for the number of containers of shaving gels, lotions and creams. As we look to the future and leaving Mother Earth better than we found it, trimmers are a more environmentally conscious choice for ourselves and the generations that will come after us.
Everyone wants to save. The average woman will spend over $10,000 in her lifetime on shaving with disposable products. When we want to focus on cutting costs in our lives, choosing a trimmer will save a woman thousands of dollars over her lifetime. Even replaced once every few years, the cost of a new trimmer will only add up to a fraction of what a woman would spend if she chose to use disposable shaving methods.
While trips to local convenience store may seem simple enough, those trips add up and add on to your time out and about. Not to mention the times you forget to pick up that needed replacement blade or forgotten shaving cream. While clubs and subscriptions are popping up, they too are costly, and sometimes you just do not need your next subscription when it arrives. Using trimmers directly delivered to your doorstep saves you valuable time you could be spending on things you truly enjoy.
Outside of razor burn and ingrown hairs, choosing to utilize disposable razors may actually cause your hair to become more coarse. While this may not be a big deal in the beginning, in the long run this can actually cause individuals to have more nicks, cuts and itching skin. Trimming, while the hair may not be as close as a disposable razor shave, will not cause your hair to become harder to get rid of as you get older. Razor burn and ingrown hairs are nearly non-existent with a trimmer and once you see how smooth you can feel using one, you may never reach for your disposable again.
No need to hop in the shower or lather up when using your trimmer. This trimmer is best used on clean, dry skin. A phone call from a friend for an impromptu night on the town, you will be ready to sport your tank top in no time without having to start in the shower first.
While disposable shaving has always been at our fingertips, times are changing, and we see the importance of a transition from disposable to sustainable world as being more important to today’s woman. We think that our trimmer, the Ivy will have you feeling good not just about yourself but the environment too.
