Getting advice on how to shave is a rite of passage for men: Don’t shave against the grain. Try to use hot water. Never use a dull blade. Avoid going too long between shaves. Oh, and if you managed to forget any of the previous tips - always keep a styptic pencil handy.
Five blades seems to be the new norm when it comes to disposable razors. This Schick model also includes seven "gel pods" along the top of the razor to lubricate the skin and prevent irritation.
Remember when twin blades were revolutionary? There's a reason they're still popular - they do a great job, especially in tight places. Plan to get up to five shaves from these razors, which come in this convenient 52-pack.
Three seems like the magic number for razor blades - Gillette still touts their Mach3 as their best disposable razor. It combines the best features of all its razors - strong blades, lubricating strip, great grip on the handle - all in one.
Single-blade razors? Wow, that’s really old school. Good luck finding these in any retail store. Those with facial hair still love the single-blade razors for ease of use trimming around beards, sideburns and mustaches.
