A Safety Razor Can Prevent Razor Burn
Ouch! That Is What He Gets For Using That Cartridge Razor
The Safety Razor vs Cartridge Razor question could boil down to this point alone.
Razor Burn Sucks!
How does a safety razor prevent razor burn?
Let us answer that question with a couple of questions for you.
Let’s say you are using one of those five bladed cartridge razors. With one pass of the skin, how many blades are in contact with your face? FIVE!
Next question. How many blades does it take to cut hair off your face?
As you can see. It only takes one blade! So why do the cheap one bladed plastic razors suck and the five bladed cartridge razors work better? It is all about the angles!
If you have five blades, one of them is bound to be at an angle that gives you a close shave. Unfortunately the other four might not be, which is one of the things that causes skin irritation.
A safety razor is designed so that you control the angle of the shave. This allows you to shave those hairs the first time with only one blade! Leaving your skin less irritated and therefore less likely to get that nasty razor burn.
If you couple your safety razor with the complete wet shave experience which includes Shave Oil, Shave Soap, and a Shave Brush…. Well your razor burn will be a thing of the past. Furthermore, you will actually look forward to shaving!

Are Safety Razors More Sanitary Than Cartridge Razors? YES!
As the saying goes. A picture tells a thousand words. The picture above depicts the issue with the multi-bladed cartridge razors perfectly. They are very hard to keep clean.
If you shave, then I do not need to elaborate further. You have seen it. You have tried to deal with it.
A safety razor is different. You have one blade, that blade has plenty of spacing allowing the clean-out to be almost effortless. If you are wet shaving, then you just swirl it around in the sink water and your done!
By the way, what does a sanitary razor mean? It means less skin irritation! See above.
