The Quattro brand razor blade -- manufactured by the Schick company -- contains four metal blades in a disposable cartridge. The Quattro is sold in different colors and also has a version designed for women. The Quattro is designed to be used with shaving cream and operates much like any other disposable razor.

Items you will need

  • Washcloth
  • Warm water
  • Shaving cream
  • Towel
  • Aftershave lotion
Step 1

Attach a Quattro razor cartridge to the razor's handle. Insert the end of the handle into the receptacle on the cartridge, until it clicks in place.

Step 2

Wash your face with warm water to remove any dirt and oil. The warm water will also open your skin's pores and soften the hair follicles.

Step 3

Lather the shaving cream and apply it to your face. Allow it to set for two minutes.

Step 4

Shave with the Schick Quattro in the direction of the hair growth.

Step 5

Rinse your face with cold water to remove any remaining lather.

Step 6

Apply aftershave lotion to soothe sensitive skin.

Step 7

Rinse your Schick Quattro with hot water to clean any hair and lather from the blades. Store it in its case.
