My husband has always used disposable razors to shave, even though he had slightly sensitive skin. Lately however, his skin seems to have gotten even more sensitive, making shaving painful business. One time in particular, I remeber his face and neck looking very red and so sore afterwards. I felt pain for him!
Then and there I decided it was time for an upgrade.
As a fan of Gillette products for myself, my first and only choice was a new Gillette Fusion razor for my hubby. The one I purchased was about $12 and came with a storage tray with a compartment underneith to store replacement blades, and one extra blade.
Fusion razors work on the idea that the fewer strokes you have to make, the less likely it is to irritate sensitive skin. They have five blades in total: four on the razor head for regular shaving, and a single blade on the edge of the head that can be used for tight trimming around moustaches etc... And it really works! My husband often remarks about how nice it is to shave with this razor. He even shaves more often now that it doesn't irritate and sting.
I'm impressed with this razor and will continue to buy the replacement blades for it. I can't see Dan needing or wanting a different kind anytime soon. His skin is smooth, soft, and free of redness. Best of all, it has made shaving a pain-free, hastle-free experience.
Four thumbs up from our household!
