Within 3 days of my order I received the following email:
Wow. We’re blushing.
Over the past week, you have validated more than 18 months of hard work & preparation. We are thrilled you think there’s a better way to shop for a shave, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to prove you right.
Safe to say, we weren’t expecting the demand we saw. After all, this was our label printer last week:
Well, I’m happy to report my order arrived today & everything looks pretty good. More updates after I try these razors out for a few days.
This company has received a lot of coverage on the Internet lately & I ended up giving it a try to see if it’s really worth it or not. Check out the video below (funny) and the details are below that.
I signed up for the $6 a month plan & will report back after I’ve had a chance to try the blades out. If these things are any good it’s going to be a big cost savings, especially if I can get other members of the household to sign up too.
I must admit I was pretty skeptical that this “new and improved” razor would be any better than my current kit.
I’m a firm believer that shave prep is what makes the difference. I always shave in the shower after letting by shave cream of choice do it’s magic.
The Fusion razor has 5 tightly spaced blades on the front and a single blade on the back for those hard to reach places. The Power model has a vibrating handle that is supposed to make the razors work even better.
To be honest it was love at first stroke. There was a noticeable difference in the feel of this razor as opposed to the 3-blade unit I’ve been using for years. The initial thought was that I was not applying enough pressure. It just did not feel like it was doing anything.
I quickly found out it was not only doing something it was doing it with far less effort than I’ve ever had to use before! I’m a pretty meticulous shaver and I actually ended up overdoing it. Afterward I did have a slight case of razor burn but that was my own fault. Subsequent uses have cured that problem (as did a liberal use of Zirh Sooth) & I’m growing more and more impressed with this razor every day.
If you are growing tired of your current shaving regimen and you’re looking for a change, check out the Gillette Fusion series of razors. Like anything in the shaving world, the refills are where Gillette makes their money. I’ve read online that people are getting over a month out of each cartridge. I can live with that! I’ll plan on reporting back later this year with a long-term review of the Gillette Fusion Power razor.
