Good Old Fashioned Razor Review & Giveaway



In thinking of ways I can lessen my burden on the environment, I have been mentally reviewing everything we use here in our daily lives & trying where I can, to make better choices. I don't think my family will ever be completely green, but I realize that most things better for the environment, are also better for you - healthfulness is a very important factor in how I raise my children & how my life runs.

So, when I got to "shaving" on that mental list, I realized that my razor with it's disposable head, leaves more junk in the landfill than I'd like to admit comes from me.

I was instantly taken back to my pawpaw's razor, he had the same razor since I can remember, always on the same spot on the bottom shelf in the bathroom. It was silver and he always had it. He never threw it away or got a new one - he changed the blade, that's all. The blade was a blade, that's all, no plastic housing with triple blades and comfort strip. I knew this would be a much better choice.

I contacted ClassicShaving.com. They confirmed that yes,the double edge razors, like what my Grandfather used, are far better for the environment and for your pocket. They graciously sent me a Deluxe Vintage Safety Razor to sample. Instructing me to press very lightly when using it.

I have to tell you how much I love it. The first thing I noticed was how good it felt in my hand. The weight of it - like good silverware. Second , and most importantly was the nice shave. I used very little pressure - came out with legs like silk. The best part is knowing that it is a minimalistic product that I will have forever and it will lessen the amount of waste I contribute to this Earth :))

I love finding products that I feel really good about using. I like passing the info on to you, so that maybe at sometime, you will find the occasion to need a product that I have suggested, and remember my suggestion when purchasing. That is how I did a lot of my Christmas shopping this past year, based on what other real people had to say about a product. I would much rather be guided by another real Mom than a marketing sales pitch. This form of advertisement is important and I'm glad that I'm becoming a part of it :)


Aren't Grandpas great by the way??

WIN IT!!


I have the opportunity, thanks to ClassicShaving.com to offer one reader the same wonderful razor that I am so happy to be using. You will also receive a 10 pack of blades. You won't be disappointed.

Remember that Father's Day is June 21st. Although awhile away, this would be a great gift that you can feel good about giving. Remember ClassicShaving.com. Shoot give one for Mother's Day too! I love mine and I'm a Momma :))

If Canadians may enter:

I think the Blue Anodized Merkur "Barber Pole" Hefty Long Handled Classic and Silvertip 4 Piece Shave Set would make a great gift for my dad.

If I won, it would probably be for me - not ever having to buy another razor is really appealing, and my dad already has a razor of this type (it's the other things in the set that I think he'd like).

Stainless Steel Manicure Set in Buffalo Case has all the tools I use regularly all in a nice case and not spread out in the bathroom, vanity drawers, etc.
I remember these razors when I was a little girl. I have a nice scar on the bottom of my foot from stepping on moms when I got out of the tub when I was in the 2nd grade. sharp lil' things! But, she still has this razor today! Lets say, 30+ years later...lol.

The DOVO Stainless Steel Re-Usable Toothpick would be a much better choice than wooden disposable toothpicks that contribute to deforestation.
