To go through razor blades?

I've got a Gillete Mach 3 Turbo (sounds more unnecisary than it is) Pretty much your standard 3 blade razor, I'm sure some of you have it too. Anyway, I'm using the blades for maybe 3 seperate shaving sessions, and by the 4th I'm thinking "ow, this is getting dull"

How many times can you use a razor before you start thinking that and switch the blades? Just wondering if it's this often for you guys or not.

I have one of those hot gel dispensers, so the steaming hot gel really opens your pores to make shaving easier and helps conserve the blade a little.

Well, I have an automatic razor, but I kind of like using a blade more now for some reason. I've got good gel too, so no worries there. Yeah, I've got really hardcore hair, so it's not too easy on the blades. Just making sure I'm not growing steel or something and warping blades that should last 12 uses or something.

Cool, thanks

If you like painful burn type things there, go for it. They specificly tell you not to use it there, since it is more sensitive.

I would have a beard, but it would slow me down... Maybe in the off season.
