I just noticed today on a pack of new blade cartridges that it says to replace every 3 shaves. To me that seems excessive. Then again I use mine about 10 times, and knowing me thats probably excessive on the other end of the scale. So how long do you use yours for.

Until I think it's not gonna be very good at shaving effectively."Those of you in the cheaper seats clap your hands, those of you in the more expensive ones rattle your jewellery."

Until it doesn't shave clean enough. If I changed it every three times I would spend a fortune on blades.

Yep, I use them until they become too blunt to do anything.Another quality post brought to you by Mr Mist, god of Moo.

every 2 shaves or so. mind you, i dont shave very often, and when i do ive got a lot of fairly coarse hair on my face, so its just the best way really .
Although, used a disposable razor last week, and I liked it a lot. Perfectly sharp every time? Yes please.Be happy, accept those you care for, and live your life in a manner true to yourself, those you care for, and the values you hold dear to your heart.

ill use razors on my legs and underarms for longer than ill use ones on my bikini area. I often have 2 razors on the go for that reason.
for bikini area probably 4 shaves. For legs, until it starts grazing me and doesnt shave smoothly. Sometimes Ill just use the razor thats been bikini`d out as a leg razor for a while afterwards

I tend to use the same razor about 3 times. Any less, it would be really expensive.

The razor I use for my bikini area gets used once and once only. For my legs and underarms I use it until it it does not shave clean.

I use my razor till its blunt and starts to pull..........bit stupid really but I hate shaving and only do it every 2 weeks if I can be bothered.....
Disposable razors are evil and should be culled though....

Well when everybody says, I use it till it doesn't shave well anymore, how long is that generally?Of all the mistakes you've made, the best are yet to come.
