800Razors.com Service and Product Review
Isn’t shaving just the funnest thing ever that we humans are tasked with daily? Ok, so I am totally kidding..I hate shaving, but of course I do it to remain a somewhat civilized looking human, but it is a pain. What makes shaving a real buzz kill is when you do not have razors that shave back..yeah I said it..there is nothing worse than a lousy razor that just rips hair out. Thankfully, the latest razors I received from 800Razors.com actually worked.
My 800Razors.com Service and Product Review started off on a good note with the attentive customer care I received directly from their team. They took the time to address a prior issue I had with their razors, and remedied the situation. It was great to work with a company who actually listened and took my thoughts into account.
800Razors.com sent me two units to test out, and try; one for myself, and one for my husband. The items arrived in a nice, sleek box via USPS First Class Mail. Inside there was a Men’s Five Blade, and Woman’s Five Blade Razor set. Since I was a couponing enthusiast, I have honestly tried EVERY razor product on the market; in both male and female versions so I had a good basis of comparison to start with.
The first thing I personally noticed about the Men’s Five Blade, and Woman’s Five Blade Razors were that they were very similar in appearance to the Gillette Venus®, and Fusion® razors. In fact, 800Razors.com suggests they are comparable to these popular brand names. I think they hit the nail on the head with construction, and design because (at first inspection) I thought they looked, and felt very similar to the name brand competitor. However, the 800Razors.com samples were a bit more comfortable than even my almost $10 razors!
Woman’s Five Blade Razor
I did notice that the Woman’s Five Blade Razor cartridge was enclosed in a neat little plastic safety, and storage container-that was a plus. However, at closer glance, the actual blades looked fine, but the fortified with aloe, “Soft and Smooth” 360 lubricating strip was actually rough, and bumpy. Each of the four cartridges were the same, and felt a little off..but it would be the actual shave that put these woman’s razors to the test.
When it came to to shave my legs, the razor suggested that soap was optional. No matter the razor, out of habit, I always prefer a bar soap lubricant, so that is what I used. I have to say, the Woman’s Five Blade Razor did do it’s job and effortlessly shaved my legs. The razor did not slip, and I did not incur any nicks, or cuts. That is a huge plus because there is nothing worse than trying to bandage a bunch of non stop bleeding cuts.
The Men’s Five Blade Razor’s lubricating strip also looked a little rough in appearance, but my husband said it worked..ok. Not fantastic like his Fusion®, but it got the job done, and he didn’t complain too much. He said the handle felt like his go to brand name razor, but the smoothness of the shave just wasn’t there. He does have sensitive skin, and a thick beard so that likely came into play.
Overall, I’d say that my experience completing the 800Razors.com service and product review has been that of a good one. If I wasn’t a couponer, I would surely take advantage of this great razor service, but I can personally have enough razors to last me years.
