Why do people use safety razor instead of cartridge razor?
Shaving with a safety razor is going to substantiallyreducethe amount of irritation that you get from shaving.
Safety shaving with a double edge blade means that only one razor edge will ever come into contact with your skin at any given time as opposed to 3, 4 or 5 with a cartridge razor - of course having so many blades run across your skin is more irritable.
The other difference is that the edge of the double edged razor is more exposed than with cartridge razors meaning that you'll get a better "cut" of the hair closer to the surface of the skin as opposed to the often irritable pulling sensation that can occur with cartridge razors.
Many women with sensitive skin find that simply switching to a safety razor eliminates the irritation that they commonly experience with cartridge razors.
Is shaving with a safety razor more time consuming?
At the beginning, when you're just learning the technique, you'll find that shaving with a safety razor takes longer. This is normal with any skill that you're trying to learn for the first time.
Once you've got the hang of it, though, you should find that shaving with a safety razor doesn't take substantially longer than with a cartridge razor.
If you have thicker hair, then you might want to do a multi pass shave for the closest shave possible. This would mean initially going with the grain and then either across or against it. Doing a multi pass shave takes a little bit longer than with a safety razor, but nothing substantial.
