Beauty review: Schick Quattro Razor

For all the money I spend on skincare and moisturisers and the like, I must confess that when it comes to shaving I’m a bit of a cheap-arse (particularly in Winter – much to the disdain of the men in my life). So when I received a Schick Quattro for review, my expectation was for another over-priced piece of plastic and metal that wouldn’t do my skin any great favours.

I was pleasantly surprised.

More importantly, I was reminded that quality is paramount when it comes to hair removal. After all, no self-respecting male would use a cheap flimsy disposable razor on his chin so why should my legs or underarms be subjected to one?

The price difference between a 5 pack of disposable razors and a Schick Quattro is hardly that huge, so from now on I’m going the better quality option every time.

And for the record, when it comes to quality please remember that this isn’t an arms-race between who can have the most blades on their razor, frankly I don’t really care if it has two, three, four, or twenty – it’s the difference between a sharp, close shave and a bout of razor-burn.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
