2. The charming Mrs. does not approve of that option

I have a vested interest in keeping her happy.

4. Harry's works for me

I don't shave every day, maybe two to three times a week. I have a surplus of blades with minimal plan so I never have to use a dull blade. The foam cream is tops as well and last longer than expected.

6. Tried Harry's

I found the blades and handle a little better than Gillette Fusion, but the Fusion has a single blade when you flip it over and allows for better precision under the nose and on the sideburns. I didn't like that the Harry's blades didn't have this, so I went back to Gillette. I tried the Harry's shave cream and it was a complete waste of money. It's hard to get on and off and it doesn't work better than regular shaving cream. Their shaving gel works about like any other shaving gel I've tried.

About the only thing I did prefer was their after shave lotion. It goes on cool and has a pleasant smell, but it's more expensive than many alternatives so I didn't like it well enough to buy more of it.

11. The after shave lotion is part of why I'm considering Harrys

I razor burn really easily.

7. Harrys' customer for a year

Heavy beard, only use the blades and razor, equal to Schick quatro or Gillette fusion, not cheaper, but far less expensive. Change blades once a month or so. Try to ensure the blade is dry after use. Great product.

8. I have a fairly tough beard, but Gillette Mach III cartridges still last forever for me.

My secret is that I thoroughly dry off the blade after every use.

9. I use an electric shaver to shave once a month

Not being hairy has its privileges.

You barbarians and your arcane shaving rituals elude me.

13. Well here's a vote for Dollar Shave Club

did the twin blade for a year or so and just recently bumped up to a quad. I don't shave a lot and I get my refills every other month so I do also have a surplus. I can shave with just about a brand new blade nearly every time I shave. Their shave butter is nice but I end up using whatever my wife bought for her legs anyway. Makes no difference to me and is cheaper. I think.

I like the heavy feel of the quad handle and I never have to wonder if I have a razor. Both big improvements over the disposable crap I used to use. I barely even notice the cost as it's a few bucks every other month.

Keeps me cheeks smoove:


(all of them.)
