If you are a freebie master and haven't paid for a razor or shaving cream for years - you might not need this tip!

But if not, here is how to make your razor last longer. Simply pour a little bit of baby oil on the blades before you shave.

You can also shave with baby oil, rather than using shaving cream, for a smoother (and closer) shave!

I like to put some baby oil on my legs after I shave, for a smoother, more comfortable feel.
