Would you buy another product for worse quality but cheaper like razors, shampoo?
(skin care, durability etc)




one of the sources that will show a different quality
http://www.gillettevenus.com/en-us/how-to-shave/hair-removal-methods/dont-share-his-razor

So everyone what product would you choose?
The ones cheaper or the keep the ones you used too or buying the ones with better quality?
(if your skin can't take the cheaper ones or feel they don't do as good of a job)

I try to buy the better quality products when I can.

You usually get what you pay for.

Example: with cheap razor blades, not only do they tear my face up, the blades wear out after one use. With good quality razors, I get a smooth shave for up to a month per cartridge. The higher quality razors cost me less in the long term while providing a better experience.

I find a machine to be cheaper (well in longer terms that is) and sometimes good (cind of depends how you use them and takes care of them)

But want to learn how to use a sharp blade anyway
feels cooler and maybe faster but not as deep?

I never really liked electric razors.

/shrug personal preference.

At some point, what's now bad quality was good quality. I don't suppose something of a higher quality will turn up soon as you buy it so don't kid yourself about prices, the real importance is that you will make the call to switch if you feel like it.

Well I use food grade olive oil, almond and coconut oil on skin and hair. The oil gets graded as food grade (best quality) at top and what's left/rejected are used for non food purposes. Food grade doesn't come with annoying added fragrances (also masks the low quality of the oils) which I'm allergic to. They're also a lot cheaper than the cosmetic stuff.

High cost doesn't necessarily equal good quality. It's best to do your homework and learn to shop smart.

I didn't comment on the video's products because it's not likely I'd use any of them bar the odd razor on rare occasions. The whole gender pricing thing isn't new or a surprise to me. If I want thicker socks in a variety of 100% cotton or 100% silk, I have to look in the men's section since all women's socks these days have lycra in them. Due to my allergies natural fibres are best for me. If I want to risk the health of my skin to shave legs on the odd occasion then I'd go for a simple men's disposable razor because I wouldn't want to use it again. The same design exact design is sold for women except they're pink which the manufacturers used to justify them costing more. I'm sure blue/yellow/black dye cost the same as pink but they get away with it.

I mean I don't use much so I tend to get the good quality, since it'll last a while. I try to conserve.

It's about half/half; sometimes I want the good stuff, but othertimes I just want what is cheaper.

Always do your homework. Certain companies will take advantage of the fact that most people equate higher price with higher quality.

Depends sometimes ill go for the cheap stuff (Arizona ice tea best ice tea), but in other cases ill buy the more pricy stuff. For example Ill usually spend a bit on shoes cause I like having nice shoes and usually the brands I buy last a long time.

Combo: I have a minimum quality standard and choose the cheapest from there. For example when I buy razors I buy 3 blades, because 2 blades just don't do a great job, but I'll buy the cheapest 3 blade razor .

Its possible to find quality that doesen't kill your wallet. But personally I would be willing to pay more for good quality rather then crap. Especially for razors.
