Currently using a 5 blade razor from Lidls, I was intrigued to see what might make me part with £30 for this Gillette instead.
Rather than being disappointed with it, I am mightily impressed.
£30 sounds like a lot for a razor. However, it comes with an additional 9 blades as well as the one on the razor. I reckon that's at least a years worth of shaving. That being so, that works out at £2.50 a month. Not so prohibitive.
The shave is excellent. The blades take care of the stubble and the moisturizer on both sides of the blades leaves your skin feeling soft and moist after shaving. More so than my other razor. The pivot head is what really gives it the edge. It managed to get hairs in the nooks and crannies that the other had difficulty cutting.
Having tried it, I don't think I will be returning to my previous model unless the price for blades increase hugely or it falls apart over time. We'll see. Overall, very impressed and a recommended bit of kit.Gillette Fusion Proshield Flexball Manual Razor with 9 Razor Blades
