Beats Mach 3 and Fusion by miles
on 8 June 2010
After using the Mach 3 and Fusion blades for the past 10 years I got fed up of the constant razor burn, irritation and missed spots. I had read that the Sensor Excel provided a more comfortable shave and this is true. The blade is just the right size, you can shave under your nose easily and also on your jawline below the ears. Try doing that on the oversized Mach 3 and Fusion. The blade stays in one place and does not move according to the contours of your face (i.e. it does not swivel), this means that you are in control of the shave and it allows you to judge how much pressure to apply on each stroke.
The fewer the blades the less irritation on your skin. Razors are getting more gimmicky as time goes on. People are falling for the 5 blade vibrating razors which actually provide worse shaves. I wonder what the future holds? A ten blade razor that emits lazers? Shaving is a simple act so keep it simple!
