Everyone has their own idea of what is good value and what is overpriced when it comes to shopping. Given that there are no set prices in life for anything, price perception is a very subjective matter. Where I might think that it is fine to spend £5 on a good quality shampoo (I don’t by the way… I shave my head) you may think that is ridiculous and will grudge spending even £1 on the cheapest possible brand. You might think that spending £40 on a haircut is perfectly acceptable, whereas I might think that that is a rip-off and will cut my own hair.
We each value different things in different ways. The word ‘expensive’ is actually based on opinions that we have formed from our experiences in life.
While I think that we all have different price perceptions on most things, I am certain that most people will agree on one thing:
Razorblades are freaking expensive!!
Here in the UK you end up paying about £2.50 for a single good quality blade.. and that is with a frugal mindset in action, shopping in bulk. I die a little bit inside every time I shed out £10 for four replacement blades. I usually include this purchase amongst a big shop to reduce the impact that a single item has on the total cost! I accept that there are cheaper alternatives (disposables etc.) but the benefits of decent blades justify the increased cost: I have quite sensitive skin and I want to look good for work with a close shave. The problem is that blades can start to feel dull after only a few shaves! The price of razorblades has been grinding my gears for far too long… £2.50 for a few pieces of metal… I mean come on, seriously… how much do they cost to manufacture? Surely this is a massive money maker for everyone involved in the process. I think I proved this point to myself when I noticed recently that it is often cheaper to buy a new razor with a ‘free’ replacement blade than by the blade cartridges on their own! Madness!
There is an Alternative!
Imagine then, my excitement when a company called Razorpit contacted me, asking me to test their new product. Such a simple concept, Razorpit is a device that cleans and sharpens your razor with the use of a special friction pad. This removes unwanted residue, skincells and keratin from the blades following your shave and leaves them looking and feeling new!
When I first heard about the product, I have to admit that I was slightly skeptical – I questioned why nobody had come up with this idea before (perhaps I was a little jealous that it wasn’t my idea)! After using the product for the last week, I can honestly recommend it to anybody – My only muse is that I am a little gutted to have thrown out so many blades that could have been reused
Razorpit’s research has indicated that some customers are saving up to 90% per year on purchasing blades, while the average statistic is around 60%. With over 300,000 units sold to date, it clearly works!
