Still the best wet razor you can get
on 19 August 2014
Over the years I have tried many razors but always come back to the Protector. The 3D head movement is great, the shave is close but doesn't nick skin, and the blades last for a decent amount of time. For the record, I shave in the shower using a shaving oil.
After leaving my last Protector at a hotel (grrr) I decided to try the Quattro but it's not as good by a long chalk. The shave is less close, the blade is too chunky to reach everything and the head does not swivel side to side so keeps popping off the handle. So I was very relieved to find these Protector razors on Amazon because the supermarkets only stock the blades now, not the razor itself. I bought two.
I do hope they keep making the Protector somewhere - I think the ones for sale on Amazon are made in Germany and have a 2014 date on them which is encouraging. Why do manufacturers try and fix something that isn't broken? If anyone from Energizer is reading this, please make Protector available in the UK again!! Even the margins must be higher than what you're charging for the Quattro range which looks a lot more complicated to make. I'd pay the same and I think many others would, just read the reviews.
