in an age when new products are being released onto the market every few months, you need to ask yourself: If it's not broken why try to fix it? Gillette Sensor does not need batteries, nor does it need an increasing number of blades that make the head too large to use! This is an excellent product that has left me not wanting any other razor blades. It is just a pity I struggle to find them on the high-street anymore.

I have used Gillette Sensor blades for years but have found them increasingly difficult to find in the shops. No blade is perfect so have tried others but always keep coming back to the Sensor. Even Gillette Sensor Excel doesn't, in my opinion, give such a good shave as the basic Sensor and they don't seem to last as long either.

Why anyone wants to use more than a twin-bladed razor is beyond me. I presume manufacturers feel they need to continually innovate and with huge marketing budgets behind the products they convince men that more is best. For me, shaving with more than twin blades is cumbersome. Getting into those difficult places around the nose, for example, is best suited to a fine blade not a lump of hydra-headed metal.

It had never occurred to me until recently to buy razor blades off the Internet. This source should, hopefully, enable me to buy basic Gillete Sensor razors well into my dotage.

Have had a Gillette Sensor razor for as long as they've ben making them. Simple, straight forward razor, with no frills ands the blades last for weeks even with a heavy beard. Great buy and fast delivery.

I have used these blades for years and as said in other reviews are getting hard to find I've tried the new models 3 blades and sensor excel but you just cant get the close comfortable shave you get with these blades. In my opinion Gillette sensor is the best a man can get.

these are quite the best of the sensor range of blades and it is crazy that shops only stock the more recent models which are no where near as good

The best shave i ever had was in India with a barber who used a SINGLE blade. In my opinion you dont need five blades and vibrating heads to get a close shave. Surely not all five blades can be in contact with your skin at any one time anyway (a face is contoured and not flat), and would you trust a barber with a shaky hand!. Save yourself some money and spend this instead on a good natural product shaving oil and a similar foam. The two together will increase the quality of your shave far more effectively. This is a good quality product. The only criticism i would have with the supplier was that the delivery (small enough to go through my letter box) required a signature, so i had to wait several days until i was free to go to the sorting office.

I give four stars because these particular blades (Gillette Sensor) are excellent; they give a really close shave and don't cut and are luckily still available at a decent price. I've tried some of Gillette's later versions but found that they cut or don't actually shave that well! The Gillette Sensor Excel ones, with the three blades are absolutely rubbish!!

Anyone thinking of switching to Gillette, I'd highly recommend you use these blades

It is difficult to find these at retailers now, requires hunting down if you have the time hence found it online more easier. Paying for the fast delivery was worth it as I was out of razors! These razors are the best & give a good & best shave even though the product brand is quite old. I don't like razors which have 4 or 5 blades, they cant get into the hard to reach areas around the nose, sides of neck or close to the mouth.

Trusted item and couldn't see them cheaper anywhere else. Quick delivery, well packaged. Been using them for years. Very, very similar to the Excel...the actual cutting blades look the same and the only disernible differerence seems to be the fins and the lubricating strip differ slightly in size, but I wouldn't have thought anyone is going to notice a difference. I certainly never have in all these years. Recommended.

So pleased with these blades. Used the G2 twin blades for years with great satisfaction. When I finally ran out last August I was concerned that I would not find a replacement as good. But these filled the bill. Hope Gillette keep the twin blade going although I have an idea that even these will be phased out. Will have to look at buying in a few years stock, which is what I did with the G2.
