Shaming men? How fragile is your masculinity? Multi blade gives a closer shave with less irritation.
And also sticks it to Gillette after shaming men with their adverts. Give your money to someone that deserves it. Safety razor gives better shave in being closer and less irritating for your skin, is cheaper and more environmentally friendly. It’s the perfect win win situation.
Just buy a safety razor. Reduce plastic waste. It's also more economical.
Same thing is £11 in Savers.
I use a Fusion Power 5 and it's great. Very quick and easy, never get cut. One or two passes for a perfect close shave every time. The blades are over-priced but you can cheat the system. Get yourself a "razor blade sharpener mat" off eBay for about a fiver. It's basically a rubber mat. You put a little shaving gel/foam on the mat and run the blade over it in the opposite direction to how you shave. Do it about 10-20 times, takes only a few seconds. It doesn't really "sharpen" the blade, it just cleans all the crud off it. Doing that the Mach 5 blades last about 6 months of daily usage, so the cost comes down to about £1.20/year if you grab the blades on discount.
Thanks guys. Using a standard shaver plug and the green charge light comes on, which is a positive. :D
My normal shaver This one
Sorry, I went away to have a shower - that looks like a shaver plug to me, so you could easily get a 1amp shaver plug from Poundland to use it with. This is just a guess though - those prongs do look very slightly turned inwards.
After looking at the plug vs a another braun shaver I have they look exactly the same, obviously I'm no expert and could be wrong but I see no reason not to use it a shaver socket (obviously this just what I think use at your own risk or ask someone who actually knows what there talking about)
I've had one for a while didn't think it was that bad tbh. Not as good as Gillette but most definitely better than Wilkinson sword. It doesn't hack my face to pieces at all, does go blunt quick tho
Just got a safety/Double edge razor instead. It'll shave 10 times better, last for life, blades are pennies each and last weeks and there's no plastic involved.
Re the razor pit... You can do exactly the same thing with your hand, I shave in the shower so my hands are wet after the shave. Rinse out the blade from the back using the shower, then stroke the blade THE WRONG WAY against the heel of your hand a few times... Pulls off all the grease and strops the blades. !
Exactly, money for old rope. However i was wasting so much money on new blades. I'm only on my second one this year, on average get between 3 and 4 months from a razor. Money well spent in my opinion.
Good for the environment so hot from me. Been using a DE blade for over a year. Initially a few little nicks but nothing major. I use astra blades but amazon do a decent budget blade also.
Everyone has their technique and preferences. I prefer DE, and even within that, only specific blade and razors as others just don't seem to work on my skin.
Is it just me or I found single sided ones easier to use.
20%off if you sign for their news later as well. £10.60 I’ll give it a go. Been paying for cartridges for too long I think.
I tried a cheap butterfly razor from ebay could not get on with it. Picked up a better safety razor a couple or weeks back and some Derby blades and I am amazed with the result. Love it so close and barely any irritations
Thanks, ordered yesterday, delivered today and just been on a sharpening frenzy in my shed. Seems really good!
Balancing your blades is simply making sure the weight of your blade is evenly distributed from one side to the other. A blade typically becomes unbalanced in the sharpening process when you grind more metal off one side than the other. Correcting this is easy, simply use a balancer (which can be as simple as a nail in the wall) to test your balance, and then use your grinder/or sharpener to shave off the heavier side of the blade until it is balanced. The importance of balancing your blades is not so much about the quality of your cut (although it can be in some cases), but more about wear and tear on your mower. Mower blades are spinning 4000 RPMs. An unbalanced blade spinning that fast will cause a significant amount of vibration, which will put stress on yout blade shaft, spindle, and even the engine.
I have no idea what this means. Balanced?
I used my sharpening stone. Bear in mind blade has to be balanced after you finish.
Is this any good for sharpening a lawnmower blade?
On my 3rd and last of these. Got them at £9.99, the last 2 never came with the holder, not sure they still come as part of the package. Good stubble zappers, handy for sideburns, but lose 50% power on second use of a new Duracel battery (cleaned the inside), at some point, the actual trimmer sinks into the mechanism making it useless. So, on the second+ use, it's a awkward zap, can even lockup leaving you in some niggly pain... Hoping to find a much better alternative.
Yeah same as :)
Just don't use it as a razor, then you don't need Gillette blades. It's done me great as a trimmer for 3 years, using rechargable AA batteries.
I used one for about 4 years until it wore out. £20 I paid when they they first came out. Never purchased blades for it though.
Is this another rip off Gillette where you have to buy there day light robbery blades or can you use the electric shaver part without replacing it?

Yes, they were almost all white, you get good and bad in all communities and that should have been reflected in the campaign to make it more balanced. I think education is needed on both sides, the physiology of both sides is very different and reacts very differently to certain situations. We are all equal, that is 100% true, we are also very different, which is also 100% true.
Yes, there were some points I agreed with, however if you watch the video carefully, the characters exhibiting the ‘poor behaviour’ are overwhelmingly portrayed by white actors, so I felt they (Gillette) were trying to ram home the ‘all white people are bad’ trope, but that’s just my personal opinion of it, others can disagree obviously.
I watched the video, mixed feelings, but I kinda agree with the message. I feel to some extent the opposite hhmm hmmm needs to take some responsibility, but overall I think it's a good message.
It was at the height of #MeToo to be fair, jumped on bandwagon is all.
They did a video about their view of Men and Boys behaviour, you can find it on YouTube and then make your own mind up about it.
Only £5.92 if buying through Fresh which is minimum order of £15 and only free delivery on orders of £40.
Showing as £12 for me :(
