Chromium coating for long lasting blades. Lubrastrip with lubricants for added comfort. Soft Ultragrip handle for great control.
I’ve mentioned these in the previous post (here) but they deserve a post of their own. Personally, I alternate between shaving and waxing depending on my whim. If my mood is leaning more towards shaving rather than getting a wax, I’ll most probably be using a Gillette Blue II Razor (disposable). These razors have been my favorite by far for the past few years. As I said before, I’m not quite sure if it’s because of the way they are designed but these razors perform fantastically. The Ultragrip handle really does offer great control as it fits comfortably in my grasp which consequentially lessens the chance of mishaps. The Lubrastrip (the little strip designed to react with water) isn’t as slimey as some of the others I’ve used in the past. As for the blades themselves, they result in the closest shave ever and because of the chromium coating, you can re-use the razors and still have the same ultra smooth results. In the interest of full disclosure, I would not recommend them to newbies as they aren’t designed like women’s diposable razors and I actually have cut myself a handful of times with them, when I first started shaving. Readily available at most cooperatives (jam3iyas) in the country and almost every drugstores abroad, these razors come in a pack, and are quite affordable (read: dirt cheap). I always make it a point to have a pack of Gillette’s navy blue disposable men’s razors on hand at all times.
Best shaving tip ever: Use men’s razors (disposable) for the closest shave and best results ever!
