Gillette's New 5 Blade Razor

#1
I knew this would happen . The cold war between Schick and Gillette kept escalating,with each company outdoing the other with how many blades they could attach onto a razor. So,Gillette now has one called Fusion with 5 blades. What does this one do that makes it superior to the last model? Probably nothing at all , but it's certain that it costs more. Being an old fashioned sort of guy,a double bladed razor suits me just fine-even the triple blade[in a pinch!],but I'll never ever use a 5 bladed razor

I agree that is just plain sillyness. The orginal double blade Sensor was a serious step up because of the blades thin profile and reasonably lasting sharpness. I bought up a big pile of blades on close out and I am still using them.

I hate the continual triumph of marketing over common sense at corporation. I hope this thing flops badly.

if only, cosmo.

my skin is too sensitive to razors. The most comfortable solution is to use a beard trimmer to keep the hairs as short as possible without shaving. However, for those times i needed a "hairless" appearance, I had my face hot-waxed. It did not hurt as much as expected. It takes 2-3 days for my skin to recover from it, which the same timeframe as shaving and it outlasts the recovery period. Shaving is horrible.

I shave every day just because I like the pain Yes.I am glad not to be female-not for the shaving thing,but for the monthlies. I remember my wife using creams for hair removal[Nair?] It was a long time ago, and possibly they were found to be dangerous in some way. But,there's no reason why ladies can't use our new razors,right?
