“Wobble and Slice!”

published 05/01/2015

ProDoes exactly what it should

ConsPrice

Introduction Gillette is, to me, one of the two premium names in razors and blades in Britain today (the other being Wilkinson Sword). If a shaving product goes under the Gillette name then it's already on to a winner in my book - it's got a mark of quality and is definitely worth a look. In fact...

“An Offer I'll Be Re-Fusion”

The rise of "Metrosexual Man" in recent years has made the male grooming market a huge growth industry. However, the male need to shave was always present, so the razor manufacturers have had to increase their market share in the old fashioned way; by coming up with new and better products and...

Before I begin I would to highlight the fact that I predicted the future in a past review. In my review 'Good Vibrations?', I stated and I quote: "What's next, 5 blades, titanium blades or just an Orange razor called "Awesome"? As you can see I got 2 out of the 4 spot on, and you must admit that...

“Gillette Fusion Power”

published 25/03/2012

ProSmooth, close shave, which rarely nicks the skin, ...

ConsExpensive, battery feature is not for me

I have tried numerous razors to get my legs feeling smooth and silky and nothing seems to work. The Gillette Venus is a little to delicate, in that hair only stays gone for a short amount of time before the dreaded prickles begin to appear. So, I decided perhaps it was time to experiment and so...

ConsExpensive blades

I consider this razor to be aimed at men! On the appearance of it and the adverts it really is directed at the male market! However.... I own loads of razors. Since the age of about 14 I've shaved my legs and bits and bobs (ahem) daily which means my hair growth is rather coarse now at the grand...

ProTrimmer at back a nice idea, non-slip grip

ConsPoor shave with little closeness, too expensive.

I would never in my life spend five quid on a single razor. For me such a price is nothing but extortion , especially since a store branded razor can retail for less than two of your British pounds. As such, it is only thanks to the visit of a certain Mr Santa Claus that I became the owner of...

ConsPricey blades, thicker handle

I've been shaving since I was 13 and started off with one of those cartridge type things with a single blade that you wound on when it got blunt. Over the years I graduated to a twin blade and stayed with that for years. Problem is that I have a very sensitive skin and could only shave about...

I have been using the Razer Fusion for about three months now and couldn't bring myself to fork out on the massively expensive Fusion Power one with battery vibration function. For most people that shave, they either use manual or automatic, so I didn't get why they would get one that looks like...

In my opinion, when it comes to razors there are a lot of gimmicks about and the number of different razors about for men is vast to say the least. When I bought my Gillette Fusion Power razor I initially felt it was quite bulky. The head has five blades, apparently for comfort and precision. The...

ConsExpensive, all the frills for no real reason.

The Gillette Fusion razor is the first ever to create a razorblade boasting a revolutionary second blade on the rear of the razor designed to help you get to all of those awkward places such as the nose and the sideburns. I got sent one of these in the post the other day by Tesco for being a...

ConsBulky, and expensive blade replacement.

I have had this razor for a while now and it really does go with the slogan “Gillette the best a man can get!.” First thing is first, things are getting a little ridiculous with the five blades evenly distributed as some people can only fit three of the blades on their upper lip (Next year I do...
