If you shave where do you buy your razor blades? Living in a house with 4 razor users it's very costly! We use Mach 3 and Wilkinson Hydro 5s.

Tesco sometimes do a massive pack of blades MACH3 for £20

That's what I need something like that but Asda don't do anything and it's £10 a pop in Boots for 8 blades. Kills me!

£10 is quite good for Mach 3.
I bought 8 in Boots for almost £14 the other day and H was moaning about them saying they were hurting him. I spoke to customer services and then sent them off & they came back counterfeit - from a blimming BOOTS store!

It can't have been 8 then, maybe 4s either way it kills be doing a tenner a week on blades! That's shocking Boots were selling counterfit.

Amazon really do sell everything!

This really isn't going to help you but a few years ago there was a clearance on some venus blades at my local Tesco store. I am sure I paid about 55p for a box of 4. Let's just say I bought LOTS of boxes. After about 3 years I am getting to the end of them......it is going to kill me when I have to pay out full price again!

How many boxes did you buy to last you 3 years?!
03/07/2013 at 17:07
I can't remember but pretty much the cupboard /sink unit in our ensuite was packed. I did get a look from the lady at the checkout when I was buying them. But they were around £5 a box then so 55p was a bargain!

I tend to buy them in bulk at Costco. H bought a razor pit which was recommended to him by a friend and nearly all his friends have them too. It sharpens the blades and prolongs the life of the blade. I've used it quite a few times.

How often do you change the blades belle?? Costco might be worth a look but can be hit and miss in there

PB - How does that Razorpit work and is that the only place that sells them?
03/07/2013 at 21:47
We arent costco anymore. Probably change blade every other day.

You rub some shaving foam on it and pull the blade up the length of the pit, it somehow sharpens them. I can't actually remember the last time h bought razor blades he has has the pit around 2 years now, I think that site it the only place you can buy it from. We only found the site because someone recommended the razor pit. I've bought presents for h in the past from there too, they have good offers.

Omg I only change mine once every couple of months, but then I only really do my underarms as I get legs waxed. Tbh that's maybe a cheaper way to do it?
04/07/2013 at 08:32
Bloody hell! My H probably changes the blade once every 2-3 weeks!! Same for me!
Surely you don't need to change them that often?
