Is anyone else constantly horrified at how expensive replacement cartridges for your razor can be? Seriously—is there any reason those little refills need to be so dang pricey?

The answer: Nope. At least, not with Ladies (and gents!), meet your legs’ new best friend.

800razors began in 2011 when its founders wound up with lost luggage while on a business trip. When they went to a nearby drugstore to stock up on a few essentials, they, too, were astonished at how expensive razor cartridges cost—so they decided to do something about it.

After researching razors for a year, they went on a global search for a razor manufacturer that would make the best quality razors for the best price—and thus, 800razors were born. To keep the costs down to their customers even more, they decided to bypass drugstores and supermarkets and heading right to the online market.

Lucky me, I got to test out these wonderful little razors, about which I can only say this:

Easiest. Shave. Ever.

With five blades, a nice wide soapbar, and an aloe-filled moisturizing strip around the entire circumference of each cartridge, 800razors’ offering for women works just as well (if not better) than the Gillette Venus. It hugs every little curve, so for the first time possibly ever, I didn’t end up with that one little missed patch I habitually have on my left calf. The result? A super smooth, super fast, nick-free shave. My legs have never been happier. Also, I love the cute little pods the cartridges come in. Adorbs.

And my goodness, talk about bang for your buck! We’ve all somehow gotten used to shelling out $15.99 for four Venus cartridges (ick). A cheaper option is the Schick Quattro (which, by the way, I do still love for its nifty little trimmer), which runs at $11.99 for four; but even that doesn’t beat 800razors, which nets you four cartridges for $9.99. And if you buy in bulk, the savings just mount up—$17.99 gets you eight, $32.99 gets you 16, and $38.99 gets you 20. The best part? You can make a one-time order, OR you can sign yourself up for a recurring subscription. If you go with the recurring plan, you can choose your frequency, too: Get new razor cartridges delivered to your door every two, three, or four months depending on your personal needs. Because it is. LOVE. You’ll never find yourself stuck with a dull razor again!

Not only that, but you don’t have to pay an additional fee for the initial razor handle, either—it comes free for new customers with your first cartridge order. And did I mention that delivery is free, too? Because it is. Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Neither have the dudes been left out; for the menfolk, 800razors offers both a three-blade and a five-blade option, and if you live in a household with both men and women, there’s an awesome combo deal that nets you a women’s razor handle with eight cartridges and a men’s handle with either eight five-blade cartridges or 10 three-blade ones for a paltry $32.99.

Find out more and try these babies out for yourself risk-free (seriously—if you feel burned for any reason, you can get a full refund within days of your initial purchase) at  Happy shaving!
