Question re razors-is this the right department?

Just wondering on the merits of disposable vs nondisposable razors....the latter are sooo expensive and so are the blades you use so there must be some benefit. Do you use the blades more than once or are they just super effective and thus worth it??

Well I used to as well, but have had probs with my skin and read in a magazine that you should only use them once (for best results).

Don't know if it's helped much though! My skin seems very sensitive after having the kids.

Is there any reason why you don't use hair removing cream / waxing if razors cause problems?

'Department' made me feel like mnet is a very nice shop! Re razors - mine go on for months, but then I'm not great at remembering to do it.

Have tried the cream but had mixed results-patches of hair left plus stressing over getting it all off in the maximum time allowed!
