(Warning: This post is an advertisement on what razor/s I have been using for the past 30 years to shave my head and my beard, thus, consistently describing me as the Bald Runner!)
It was quite an experience to find the best razor in the market with such considerations like: affordability in price, easy to use, longevity on the sharpness of the blade/s, cheaper replacement blades/cartridges, and comfort or safety in using it. When I started to shave my head regularly for at least, twice a week, for the past 30 or more years, the most popular brand then was the Gilette where I started with their Mach 2 models, and then to Mach 3, up to the Fuzion and ProGlide Models where they have increased the number of blades in each cartridge from two to four and then to 5 blades. However, when I asked my son, John, to buy me a Razor Set at the Costco, he gave me a full set of the Schick Hydro 5 Sense Hydrate Razors with One Razor Handle and 17 Razor Blades/Cartridges @ $ 40.00 or less. I used this Razor Set for two years!
Using the Schick Hydro 5 Sense Razor was very comfortable, its blades are very sharp (5 blades in each cartridge), and easy to use. However, I could only extend the use of each cartridge for a maximum of one month or 8 times for shaving my head and beard which is considerably good. When I was about to use all the 17 pieces of replacement cartridges, I started to look for new cartridges at the Target Store and I found out that they are very expensive. The 8 cartridge pack price would be equivalent to buying the Original Schick Hydro 5 Set that my son John gave me. Despite its pricey cost, I bought One Pack of the Replacement Blades/Cartridges.
For the past years while I was using the Schick Hydro 5 Razor, I have been seeing advertisement of the Harry’s Razor on Fashion Magazines and in the Internet. I have tried to look for its history and how it is made and read almost all the positive testimonies and feedbacks of their users. So, in one of my trips to California, USA four years ago, I finally bought a set of Harry’s Razor. Because I still have few cartridges left in my Schick Hydro 5 Razor, I have alternated using these two razors in my regular shaving.
As a comparison, the Harry’s Razor (with the same number of 5 blades per cartridge) gives me a faster time in shaving my head and my face as compared to the Schick Razor. Shaving with the Harry’s Razor saves me at least, 5-10 minutes. Each catridge also lasts longer as I can extend the use of each cartridge to two months which is equivalent to 16 times using each cartridge. For the past four years, the Harry’s Razor had given me the best shave in my entire life and I am going to stick to it through the years to come. So far, I have used 12 cartridges already and last November 2019, I bought a 4-piece set cartridge which I intend to use until my next visit to California if things will normalize from the present travel restrictions due to the Covid-19.
I highly recommend this product as compared to the other Razors in the market. They are a little more expensive but their reliability, durability, and comfort in using them is worth the price you are paying. Harry’s Razor is the best shaving razor in the market today!
Thank you for reading and have a good day!
