Certainly not the best a man can get!
on 12 September 2016
Been a Gillette user since the first hairs appear on my chin as a teenager but despite the quality shave they give, the often eye watering price made me want to try another brand with Wilkinson Sword being the next obvious choice. Well I think the phrase 'you get what you pay for' certainly comes into effect here. On the plus side you do get a close shave however in my case with plenty of nicks and cuts. The head of the Wilkinson sword razor is larger and not as streamlined as the same level Gillette razor, which I found made it hard to get a close shave near the nose and for accurate sideburns. Another major downside was the rate at which the razor clogged up, which no doubt added to the constant nicks, with each pass having to have several shakes in water to fully clear.
Glad the razor was bought on offer as I will no doubt be returning to Gillette. Yes they may be more expensive but at least I will get a faster hassle and nick free shave on a morning!!!
