Razorpit – Prolong the life of your razors?!

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 3 - 2012

It doesn’t matter how many billions of blades your razor has, they all have one thing in common – they go blunt.  It may be after 7 shaves, it may be after 15 or even 20 but you can bet your bottom dollar that before you’re ready to chuck it in the bin, you’ll be sporting the freshly corned-beef look on your shins.

The Razorpit is an ingenious solution to prematurely blunting razors.  Its objective is to clear the razor head of the tiny hairs, dead skin and shaving soap that inevitably builds up in there over time.  Yeah, gross – hope I don’t come back as a Razorpit in another life.

It works quite simply, thanks to the power of friction.  We all know about the power of friction don’t we?  I’ve seen enough carpet burns over the years (not on me, obvs) to appreciate the impressive force that a bit of friction can create.  In order to fire up this power on the Razorpit, you need to apply some shaving foam or liquid soap to the flat plane of the gadget and push your razor over the lubricated surface in the opposite direction to the regular shaving motion.

My razor wasn’t particularly gunked up but it did remove a couple of stray hairs that I’d checked were firmly wedged between the blades just moments prior to testing it out.

Overall, my feelings on the Razorpit are mixed.  I think it’s a great gadget that seems to do exactly what it says on the tin, and I’ve no doubt that it will prolong the life of my razor.  I think my hesitation lies in the simply sexist fact that I think this one is more for the boys in the household?  I just feel that I can live without something like this in my life… Mr. L on the other hand is now sporting a very pink new accessory.  And loving it.

My recommendation?  Get one for the man who has everything.

The Razorpit is priced at £19.99 and available to buy online (in either pink or black!) from presentsformen.co.uk

    TWENTY QUID? T.W.E.N.T.Y!! Q.U.I.D?!!!

    I think I’ll be recycling my old silicone iphone case rather than spend TWENTY POUNDS on this!

    Er, it’s a bit on the pricey side, eh?

    Whilst reading this I did wonder if they had only come out with a pink one, surely far more handy for the opposite sex. I, personally, no longer use razors but when I did it wasn’t so much about them becoming blunt as it was them being a bit unhygenic. I know that previous other halves have cared very little about that though, this is perfect for men like that! :)

    You can do the EXACT same thing on the inside of your own forearm and that’s free! I’ve been doing it for years and I only change my blade about once every 6 months. I don’t use the shaving cream, just my wet forearm.

    Really liked the sound of this and is certainly something I would go out and buy, but £20?! Nah, thanks. I could buy lots of razor heads for that price!

    Given how much I resent shelling out for bloody Gillette Venus blades, I’ll give this careful consideration (although not before trying the forearm tip above). London’s limescale kills off my blades after about 4 shaves, which is pretty expensive.

    definitely a present for the man who has everything and very original.
    this wouldnt be good for me since all my razors are cheap and disposable.
