Same excellent results without the hype

I have tried the new three, four, and five-blade “high brand recognition” razors that have recently hit the market. You know, the ones that are so costly that some pharmacies keep them in special locked display sections as a deterrent to shoplifting. Well, now it seems BIC doesn’t just make pens. These razors feel and perform just as well as those previously mentioned, and are a lot cheaper. I returned to my pharmacy the next day to buy a second pack to make sure that low price wasn’t a mirage. So why throw your money away?

Great disposable Cartridges

This razor is really good for a disposable. The cartridges last a long time and you get 6 or 8 with each new handle, which is also disposable. There are 3 blades in each one so you get a nice close shave. Its more economical than the regular disposables because it lasts as long as a regular cartridge, without the cuts you get from a cheap disposable.

Just your average razors.

These are ok. Nothing to write home about. They hold up about average. Overall I probably would buy again as a cheap throwaway razor.

Bang for your buck

Razors are so expensive. I used to spend tones on replacement heads for my fancy razor but these are cheaper and work great. I’ll never go back to spending $20 on 4 heads again.Note: make sure to get the 4-blade ones. The extras make all the difference.

Nice Close Shave

I like these razors; my legs seem to stay smooth longer. I use Lady Cremo shave cream with it. I’ve just learned that you can extend the time you use a razor blade by cleaning it on an old piece of denim after it goes dull. I plan to try that with these.

best razors ever!

Are you looking for razors that not only do the job, but are able to do the job time and time again? What if I told you that you can use the same razorblade for several weeks possibly even MONTHS, and they only get slightly dull as time goes on? That’s exactly what makes Wilkinson Sword razors MUCH better than every other razorblade company I’ve tried thus far. The best part is that these excellent razors are sold relatively cheap at your local Dollar General store.Get this, I’m NOT making this up. I shave every 3-4 days (I have to otherwise I get really itchy!). From July of last year until January of this year, I’ve been using exactly ONE Wilkinson razor the whole time. By late October it finally got a little dull, but it didn’t completely wear out until January of this year. If I can go 6 months using the same exact razor… why bother buying any other brand of razors? It’s clear to me that Wilkinson Sword is the best.I highly recommend ignoring popularity, ignore the ads you see on TV (particularly during sporting events) showing off the top name companies with some pretty boy shaving happily in his bathroom mirror while some generic cheesy macho music plays in the background, and go with Wilkinson Sword. They won’t let you down.

Worthless

A pack of these came with my Merkur razor. They are the dullest blades I’ve ever used. I actually quit mid-shave and put a Feather blade in to finish. Maybe I just got a bad pack, but I’d never buy these. The Feather blades are maybe the sharpest out there. I probably gave them one star too many. Even a bad blade should be good for one shave. The Wilkenson Sword blade I used wasn’t good for anything.

Great Product But Could Be $$$

Yes it’s a girls razor.No I am not a girl.Call me metrosexual but I found that shaving my underarms years ago made for a cleaner gi at karate and I just liked the way it looked after getting in the habit. I always found that women’s razors worked better for this area because men’s razors are meant for the face (I use the Gillette Fusion for this every other day activity) and have tried quite a bit since I started with this habit back in 2002/2003. Like with the men’s razors the products keep getting better with time and the Venus Spa Breeze is no exception. With this latest incarnation the soap has been attached to the blades and a nice scent has been added as upgrades. The old Venus blades always worked great but this upgrade is definitely a worthwhile one. The pros are that the soap produced makes for a smoother shave and more clean and the smell really is nice. The cons are that I would imagine these new blades are much more $$$ than the old Venus razors with regular cream and the soap attached doesn’t allow you the same kind of control that you had before.If you like not having to lather up and don’t mind spending the extra money this is a fine product. If you want to save some cash and just use lather + the standard Venus product you can’t go wrong there either. Gillette makes the best razors around and I don’t think they will be losing the shaving title any time soon.***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Great for travel, works as advertised, but . . .

The Gillette Venus Breeze is a lightweight, three-bladed razor with solid lubricant that obviates the need for shaving cream or shower gel. All you have to do is wet it and begin shaving since the soap-like pieces above and below the blades turn to a clear substance the consistency of (sorry!) mucous as you shave. The handle is molded to fit comfortably in your hand, although the weight feels more like a disposable.This pack comes with two sealed blades — airtight so as not to dry out the lubricant. Herein lies the first problem: instead of a neat row of blades in a small holder, you get individual pods. For this reason, the packaging is bulky, and it seems like a very non-green approach to razor blades.I use a Gillette Quattro as my primary blade, so I compared the two. I used the Venus Breeze without soap of any kind, and I used the Quattro with my usual Dove Body Wash. The Quattro shaved slightly closer, although this wasn’t obvious until the second day. My skin was noticeably drier on the Venus Breeze leg, however. The best news is that the lubricant worked since I had no razor burn or other discomfort while shaving.I recommend this razor primarily for travel when you don’t want to take cream or gel for shaving and you can pop a pod into your bag. Because the lubricant is solid, you don’t need to put anything in the airport carry-on quart size bag, which frees up more room for other items.This razor works exactly as advertised, although I suspect it will end up because more expensive than most choice simply because of the cost of replacement blades.

Padded reviews – bunch of “one-time/five-star” reviews

Most of the 5-star reviews are one offs – in other words, a single review for the reviewer. My guess is that the 1-star reviews are the more accurate. Really sleazy.

Have These Gotten Worse? They Used to be Great!

I’ve definitely used Personna razor cartridges in the past, because they’re notably cheaper than the brand-name ones, and that’s basically all I care about. They worked flawlessly for me then, so when I found them here, it was an obvious purchase.These, however, are really really awful. Maybe there was some batch of terribly unsharp and poor quality blades that a handful of us here got… or maybe they’ve just started making these more cheaply than before.All I know is that I’m still very confused, because I’ve never had such bad luck with these razors. It’s probably still worth taking your chances and buying a smaller pack of these to see how yours turn out, but I wouldn’t recommend the 24 pack for now.

Nice if you are willing to pay for it

To be perfectly honest when I shave my legs I just want to get the hair off with the least amount of hassle. These blades do get the hair off but it takes alittle extra work as you have to rinse the blades frequently. The moisture serum is nice but during the winter months and in the spring I need alittle extra moisture than these provide. I did have less irritation with these razors so that was a plus. To be quite honest with you I will probably not buy these again unless the price drops or I have a coupon for them. I can’t justify the price if I can get the job done for less.

An almost perfect razor.

Every time I review a razor of some sort, I say the same thing, and I’ll keep saying it until I’m proven otherwise.Women get better razors than men do.I don’t care if I have pink razors in my bathroom. I don’t care if I get weird looks from the cashier when I buy a new pack. All the stupid 5 razor disposable blades I’ve tried that are for “me” always feel bulky and flimsy. Bulky in that the part that the blades are in never feels like it covers the area I’m shaving and is just pressing against my skin. And flimsy in that that same section feels like it’s going to break off if I dropped it even once in the shower.This one from Schick doesn’t have those problems.The Hydro Silk feels great when shaving, is comfortable to hold, and leaves me with super smooth skin. It gives me such a close shave, that I can feel the air going into my skin right after I’m done shaving. Yeah, it sounds weird but that’s the best way to describe the feeling. It feels like the hair is gone completely, which is surprising considering 5 blade razors for men that I’ve used don’t give me that feeling even when they’re brand new.What keeps me from giving these a full 5 stars? The sides. When shaving my chest and “other” areas, the sides of the razor where the blades end make it hard to go around more sensitive areas without having to double check and make sure I got everything. It’s not a big deal, and is a small downfall. Definitely give these a shot if you’re looking for a 5 blade to try out.

I Like Them

I know these razors have gotten a few bad reviews, but for a disposable razor I really like them. The have a rubber handle so they don’t easily slip out of your hand. I do sometimes get a few cuts (but mainly if I use cold water, or not enough soap). If I have warm water and enough soap they make for a really smoothe, easy shave. I love the colors, but I’m a girly girl so I guess that explains a lot. They’re small so I can easily store them away, and fairly affordable. I usually get about 6 to 8 uses out of one razor. After that they become very dull and won’t shave properly. But overall, not a bad buy. I’ll continue to use them. They suit my needs just fine.

great razor

I have been using these razors for years. They work really well and glide on your skin and give you a close shave but I haven’t had any problems with any nicks or cuts. The handle is easy to use and I just won’t switch now that I have found them.

The handle is nice but the blades are not

I don’t care too much for these razors. The blades seem to dull quickly, leading to razor burn on my legs after just 2 or 3 uses. I’ve used 4 or 5 of these razors, with different types of shaving creams, body washes, soap, hair conditioner and baby oil to lubricate my legs and the same razor burn happened. I think the actual blades are too thick to cut effectively. Even a brand new razor never provided a satiny smooth shave. I also cut my shins several times since the head does not pivot and the blades are not springy on the sides like other ladies’ razors. The only thing I liked about these razors was the wide rubbery handle. It was easy to hold onto in the shower. I wouldn’t recommend these razors at all. They seem over priced considering the shoddy shave you get with them.

Great regular shaver… bikini area? No.

Let’s face it, many of us like a well trimmed bush. No one wants to admit it, and no one wants to see the words "pubes trimmer" on the packaging, but that’s what the attachment on this shaver is for – your downstairs lady garden.The razor works well, as it should. I’ve owned several Bic razors before and never have experienced a problem. These have a nice big handle are are PINK, so you you know they’re meant for the ladies. 😉 Wink wink.After I was done shaving my legs (and it did a fine job), I thought I’d try out the "hedge trimmer". I put on the attachment and went to work. It does instead "trim"…but I use that term loosely as it’s really hard to get a good, even length down there with this thing. There are just some areas of your lady garden that are going to be hard to go over with something that isn’t flexible. I had to repeatedly take off the attachment and clean it out since it gets clogged with hairs fairly quickly. It was quite a mess! I did eventually get the job done, but it’s uneven and using the attachment was a hassle. Unlike an electric trimmer, you can’t really pivot and dart in an out with this thing… you have to shave in a linear fashion and that just doesn’t work on an area full of peaks and valleys.If you like a well-maintained bush, this is not the product for you. I would not recommend this razor for that aspect. Now, if you want a regular leg shaver, this will get the job done.

I just need the shavers

In the package you get 3 shavers and 1 "trim shaver." The shavers are same as other BIC Soleil’s that I have, so I already know that I really like them. The trim shaver is just a waste to me. #1 I’m not saving it for a month to use with the other shavers in the package. And #2 I like a close shave, so this is pointless to me. Overall maybe it would be right for someone traveling, in that they could upkeep themselves, but I am not sure that it would be worth the money to purchase this every month. It is not something that would work for me and I threw out the trim shaver.

A great razor, but don’t buy into the hype

Everyone’s hyping up the Hydro 5 like it was created by god and sent down to earth for man to have the best shave ever. Well, i’ve come to give you a more honest non-hyped review.I had been using the Gillette Fusion Power for 2 years until the Hydro 5. I considered that the best shaver I had ever used (previously using electric shavers and disposable ones). I bought the Shick Hydro 5 (NON POWER VERSION) a month ago, not knowing there was a power version. The powerless version was a great shave, but I have to say honestly that it shaved better about a week into use than at the very beginning. Maybe it was because my face was adjusting to a new razor. For the past 3 weeks, I had been shaving with the Hydro 5 and started getting better at it.Now with the new Hydro 5 Power, I can give a true opinion against the GIllete Fusion power. The blade is obviously the same as the powerless version so no different there. The upsides of having the power version is a MUCH better grip (the powerless version was annoying to use after having the great shape of the Gillette. Hydro 5 power is pretty interesting in the features it comes with. There are 3 power modes; low, normal, and high. In order to cycle through these options, you simply push the power button. Push once for low, twice for medium, 3 times for high, and a fourth time to turn off. There is a small LED light indicator that shows you if you are using low, medium, or high. It also comes with a very user friendly format for battery strength. Green means power is good, red means batteries are dying, and it will flash red to indicate you need to change batteries (Power options will be disabled until fresh batteries are put in). It takes one AAA battery which comes included.My only complaint about the Shick Hydro 5 (all versions) is the lubricant strip. It’s the best thing, but also the worst thing about this razor. I love that the lubrication lasts a very long time (easily 2-3x longer than Gillette Fusion). However, the annoying part is that during your first few shaves with a fresh blade, the lubrication will get all over your face, and spread your shaving cream around and get messy. I will admit to having a slightly messy shave anyway, but this thing really makes it worse.To finish off this review, i’d like to throw in some comparison info vs the Fusion power.-Fusion Power–Comfort: 5/5–Shave: 4/5–Blade life: 3/5–Lubrication strip: 2/5–Price to effectiveness ratio: 2/5===OVERALL: 3/5-Hydro 5–Comfort: 4/5–Shave: 5/5–Blade life: 5/5–Lubrication strip: 4/5–Price to effectiveness ratio: 5/5==OVERALL: 4.5/5Hydro 5 has its downsides, but if you can look past them, this is one of the best shavers you will ever own. If this review helped or you liked it, please check ‘yes’ that this review was helpful, as it encourages me to write more great reviews, thanks.–Update 4/20/12: I’m starting to tell now after using the razor a few times that the power controls are very weak. I don’t know how to fully describe what I’m talking about, but on the Hydro 5 its like a tinny cheap type of vibration, while on the Fusion Power the power is completely smooth. It seems like the Hydro 5 is less comfortable when I turn the power settings on. Could be just me or maybe the razor I have is faulty.–Update 5/20/12: I’ve now been using this for a while. My face is getting used to the Hydro and while at first I would get a few uncomfortable shaves, I am now getting a nice smooth shave every time. I will add that when I had my fusion power, I only had to run over my hairs once, but with the Hydro 5 I have go over it twice to get that perfect smooth look. Not a big deal, but I thought i’d share it.

made for LEGS not FACE!

I’ll admit, I only bought this because I was in a hurry and it “looked cool”. The angle DISTANCE between the blades and the lubrication strip is the real issue…Its terrible. I have a pretty “normal” face but this razor won’t cut around the corners of my mouth or under my nose, unless I make ridiculous faces and stretch and pull my mouth and nose. I’ve been shaving for 30 years and have NEVER felt so stupid shaving my face. HORRIBLE DESIGN but I bet it shave legs beautifully.
