Clippers are a great addition to your grooming ensemble for two reasons, cost and functionality.
I've had a pair of clippers for about six months now. I bought them from Target for $20. Nothing special at all. Since that time, I haven't used a razor to shave my face. Razors these days are quite expensive, and maybe something you can do without.
Let's put it in mathematical terms:
Gillette Fusion razors are $20 for a 4 pack. This would cost $5 for one. If you replace your blade every week, it's going to cost $260 per year. Even if you get an expensive pair of clippers, it's going to work out much much cheaper.
Remember that there's shaving cream and any other moisturisers on top of that too!
A pair of clippers are always handy. Here's a few reasons:
- they can be used on your chest, back, pubic region and anywhere in between
- there's no need to use shaving cream, and cutting yourself with them is difficult
- they can erase shitty haircuts
- they're great at helping maintain stubble. Clippers will never shave as close to the skin as a razor, but that's a good thing. It'll place less stress on your skin, so no more breaking out.
- quick shaving
Here's a before and after of me with a quick buzz of the clippers:
Likelihood of car theft: n%
Likelihood of car theft: n-50%
If you're looking for an easy, skin-friendly and handy way to save some cash - go and buy a pair of clippers!
P.S I don't steal cars.
