The most hotly contested male grooming product on this hallowed portal brings us yet another bargain!

Firstly, I'm not entirely sure this is a nationwide deal as I was in another Tesco store on Monday night [Cumbernauld] and this was nowhere to be seen, so please check first or if you're popping into Tesco, it's certainly worth having a look.

You get 200ml of Sensitive Skin Shaving gel and a free 'AZOR' Razor with a 3 Blade head for £1.00

There seems to be a bit of a debate with regards the KOS range, so I'll chip in! I shave my head daily; and on occasion need to shave the olde chin[s] twice daily. Using the KOS Oil which has been posted for £1.41 it's the smoothest shave I've had. I would say that so far using other branded shaving gel/foam the blades last no longer than a couple of weeks, so I'll be interested to see if the KOS branded stuff prolongs the blade use.

Again, please check first before heading out!!!

Rubbish razor!


I have to agree with this. I've been using various Gillette razors for years, from Sensor, Mach to Fusion and always been happy with them. I decided to give these Azor razors a go as Gillette blades are pricey. You can't get a clean line with the Azors; shaving requires guesswork and also they're rubbish if you've gone past the stubble stage into a softer growth. I'm now considering something like a Merkur; the initial cost is high but they pay for themselves after time as the blades are dirt cheap.

Having used Gillette for about 15 years and some other brands, i found the King of Shave's Azor a breath of fresh air in the otherwise Gillette dominated market, which isnt a cheap one either. I find these blades do last longer and the King of Shaves oil works a lot better than using expensive gel's. Tesco currently have the oil at half price along with other King of Shave products, but my local store where i work has taken the oil only off the shelf for being such a good buy!

Been down this road before, but its a matter of preference. For the record, i was gillette since i started shaving but now use these.

I saw something about these on here a few weeks ago. After reading some of the stuff in the thread I bought one of the cheap Boots razors to try it out before buying a Merkur.
I still need some decent blades, as I am just using the crap ones that came with the Boots razor and I have found it to be a very good shave. However I am cutting my face to shreds every day and suffering bad razor rash - I suppose this could take some getting used to shaving like this, after years of using Fusions and whats not.

Does anyone have any tips for this kind of razor shaving?

Its cheap crap. But good for a holiday bag or a night away etc. You can bin it after your shave.

Stick to the Fusion

A merkur, or merkur type razor is good. I also fancy one, you can get one for about 40 depending on model. My hair stylist (barbor lol) uses one similar, as opposed to an open razor and its great. But two shaves from him and you could own a stylish merkur.

Does anyone have any tips for this kind of razor shaving?


A few months ago I got a Merkur and I have never looked back. Merkur razors are heavy and robust, this is not just a macho thing about having something heavy and hard in your hand in the morning, i believe the weight of the razor head contributes to the effectiveness of the shave as it's mass drifts down the face under it's own gravity to some degree which means you shouldn't have to put any additional, and dangerous, pressure on the razor itself. (this could all be ****** but i think it makes sense and I find it works). The one thing I figured out very quickly is that I couldn't go at it like I did with a fusion or mach razor. Here's a run down of what gives me the best chance of shaving without ending up looking like I'd shaved with a broken bottle.

*1) Wash the beard/stubble area a good few minutes before the shave: avoid drying the face with a towel. This helps prep the beard for the razor.

* 2) Using a shaving brush and very hot water, work a good shaving cream or soap (from a shaving soap stick) into the beard with a circular motion. This lifts the hairs and also provides a better lubricant than gels or foams from a tin does.

* 3) This is the most important step and will be totally personal to you I guess. Work out (through experience) which way your beard grows - there will be a specific layout to the direction of the hairs on your face and neck and you will need to tailor your shave to each area of your beard. (I don't mean to be patronising but no-one ever showed me how to shave and I had to figure it out myself. I'm sure others will be in the same boat.) My own shave incorporates strokes of the razor that go from top to bottom, bottom to top, left to right, right to left, top to bottom diagonally and bottom to top diagonally. :w00t:

Use as little pressure on your face as you can get away with without losing control of the razor.

I had a few nightmares with this type of razor to begin with but I stuck with it and i'll never go back to gillete etc. The neck area was the problem for me and I soon worked out that I had to go from bottom to top diagonally to eliminate the many cuts and rashes I was getting. As I said I have had this for about two months and I can say that I can now get a better shave with a 10p blade that will last me about 10 shaves than a much more expensive cartridge blade.

Hope this helps!

Oh, and get yourself one of these while you are mastering it.

hey guys

Thought i share my experience of the Azor. I too have typically used Gilette since my teenage years til now, its more or less the de facto razor of choice amongst all my male friends & some gals ;)

Anyhoo, i think it is important to share, how often you shave, skin type, how long between shaves etc before posting a review or comment. So that the reader can decide if they can relate or not and make a more formative choice whether to buy or not.

I have a designer beard that is quite intricate, I have firm skin, do not shave against the grain, have quite thick stubble after 2 days, so I shave every 3rd day. If i do shave on the 2nd day, I always end up with razor burn/rash and small cuts. My Gillette has always served me well. Not one to 'stick to what you know' I thought I give the Azor a punt as it was on offer. Firstly, in my opinion, if you have any form a designer stubble you may find it a struggle to be precise due to rigid shape of the razor body, not much flex in it without applying a fair amount of pressure, struggle to achieve close shave beneath the nose.

However, the Azor is a joy to shave with if going for the clean shave, very smooth on the face, glides with virtually no drag at all and was able to use it everyday without any skin irritations. Although, it doesn't last as long as my gilette blades. I change blades about every 2 months sometimes longer but with the Azor after about 2 to 3 weeks.

In summary, imo,

- if you have designer stubble and shave 2-3 times a week - stick with a gillette
- if you clean shave everyday - go for a Azor

Thanks

All their gels, oils smell awful.

I normally use a Gillette Fusion and the cost of the blades is a problem - I normally eBay them. On the advice of someone on this site I got around to trying a simple, cheap generic razor from boots (cost about £3 with 5 blades) with disposable razor blades. It gives a REALLY nice close shave and totally safe. Oh and obviously cheap!
#19
hated it, tried and tried (had a 3 pack) but cut me to bits every time.

I also shave my head not having much hair and putting band-aid's on yer bonce ain't funny....
#20
the razor is worse than decent disposable ones like Gillette or Wilkinson.

It might sound funny but I use both Gillette and Wilkinson the extra blade on back of Gillette fusion is handy for side burns. Wilkinson quarto is easier to clean.

Thanks for that in-depth and well thought out reply.

Using a shaving brush and soap is not something I had thought of, at the moment I am just using some shaving gel. What you say about a brush and soap could very well make the difference - I will give that a try.

Repped for your hints.

I think its a worthwhile investment, especially if you can make it work well for you - hopefully I can!

I have thick stubble after a couple of days and I had gone over a week without shaving and I thought it worked a treat. I usually end up all patchy and sore but I only had a slight rash and it felt like it done a very good job. Usually use a mach 3/fusion. Reccommend this product. :thumbsup:

Bringing this back on-topic, my store in London does NOT have this offer.

Well considering all the Haters, this is gone rather warm . . . Who says people can only be bothered to post negative comments :P
