Hydro 5 Groomer Shaver +1Kl.
About this deal
Ron, apologies again. I have bought some hydro 3 blades and am two days into testing. I do have to say that the soreness I got from the Hydro 5 is not there! This is very encouraging!!! In terms of subscriptions, all companies offer a similar service, but our favourite is Harry's for its incredibly smooth results. I'm simply trying to find a razor I can shave with on a day to day basis that gives a reasonable shave quality, i.e. cuts evenly around my face and relatively close the skin so I don't look entirely unkempt, a reasonable level of comfort, i.e. least sore patches, least razor burn, least cuts and a reasonable price, i.e. low as possible while maintaining quality.
And what about the razor? It's very easy to use, smooth (helped by five UltraGlide blades), and a handy gel-reservoir keeps skin moist during the shave. It was declared the best razor in the world around 1992 and ive tried nothing since to better it for an allround shave. The head isn't too big niether, being my biggest complaint with these later models.Ok sorry. I suppose it is a personal opinion but yours is not shared with either the main collection of posts on here or friends who used the Hydro 3 when it was free trialed amongst the men who worked at my dept store. ps I really wish Gillette would, I'd take their money but I'd still give them a completely unbiased review.
I bet that now, even before I comment, you are thinking to yourself that maybe you went overboard with these comments. Right? Designed to protect skin against irritation, Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Skin Protection Razor Regular is ideal for those looking for skin protection and high performance. Features I've tried Hydro 5 after 25 years of using Gillette products and this blade and entire design is so amazing! Best shave ever!!!Hey Earnestshub, thanks for commenting, I do the same on weekends, I always get the best shave if I let it grow out. When I did this with the Hydro 5 it felt like it was being dragged out by the roots instead of shaved :-) Somewhat dogmatic statement there that "nobody in western Europe has ever criticised the Mach 3" I'm quite sure they have. And as a rebuttal to that statement, we're comparing two razors here. By itself and never having used another razor, it is a perfectly good tool. I used it for about 2 years. However we were briefly comparing it against the hydro 5, a newer tool and one that I regard as better in some respects, even as I regard the hydro5 as not as good as some others on offer. Hence I don't rate the mach 3 very highly, there are better razors now out there. Also, this view is one that even the defenders of the middle line who have posted on here have pointed out, see the post by KP.
