    Has anyone tried Wilkinsons own brand disposable safety razors?

    Odd one this I know but I am packing charity christmas boxes which are going overseas. You put in soap, flannel, toothbrush etc. Safety rasors were suggested. As I am doing lots of boxes I have tried to keep cost down so bought razors (mens and womens) from Wilkinson. They were only something like 20p for 4/5? It has just occurred to me that they are so cheap that they might be dangerous and I don't want to include anything that is really rubbish, Has anyone tried these from Wilkinson - it is their own brand and thet are either orange (men) or pink (women). Thanks

    I had the pink cheap ones when i went on holiday,theyre ok and do the job but obviously not as well as a higher priced brand,you get what you pay for i guess

    well done you for doing charity boxes,im sure those who get them will be thrilled with your time and effort

    I do not know about them being dangerous ( Surely they could not sell hem if they were! )
    but they were deadly to shave with for me, cut my face to sheads ( having said that I was used
    to gillette sensor excel or mach3 blades. Having said that I am sure they would be greatly received.
    You are obviousy doing a great job is this a regular thing? How do you get involved?

    They wont be dangerous it just wont be a good shave

    I'm pretty sure they'd have to conform to some british standards before they can sell them.

    Well done you! I think you will be ok with disposable razors. They are good for at least 1 shave. Tell us more please, and keep up the good work (I am looking in to setting up a non profit org. so if you have any details that would be great, ty)

    Tesco do value ones at 26p for 10 and they are ok for disposable twin blade jobbo's, I only use them to tidy the back of my neck though and not on my face as I use a straight razor (cut throat) for that.

    Ive had less cuts (one minor nick) from using that than so called "safety" razors. They take some getting used to as there is a nack to it but once you get over the worry of slipping its quick and easy:thumbsup: (I practiced the angle for cutting on my forearm). It cost £30 for a setup that will last a lifetime compared to £6 a month on cartridges so in five months it pays for itself:thumbsup:
