I prefer not to bring an electric razor when I fly. It adds weight and might need recharging. The last part isn’t a big deal with international plug adapters, but the lighter one can travel, the better. Unfortunately, that means using disposable products. I still have 3 Gillette Sensor cartridges (with TWO blades) from a 5-pack I bought half a lifetime ago (in college). I guess I’ll bring those on my next overseas trip (to Scandinavia), hoping I can get two shaves out of each.
On my last trip through Europe, I brought an assortment of four disposable razors I got for free through the mail (two of one brand, two of another). The remainder of the 5-pack in the above photo is the only time I ever bought razor cartridges. I’ve never even bought a handle. I got that Gillette handle in a college welcome pack (with one cartridge), and received a half dozen others over the years through online giveaways, from 2/3 packs of singles to 3-blade up to 5-blade to vibrating handles of various brands, they just sit in a drawer until needed, which is not often. I price checked a 10-pack of single blade Bic disposable razors at Bed Bath & Beyond for $1.73 (with 20% off coupon), but would probably not need more than 4 on the trip (but then again, $2 will not break my budget). May as well use my current leftovers, though I’m not sure if I should toss the handle as well. I won’t need it anymore, but I don’t like to throw things away that still work.
