Sad that i had one slight issue with it. So, I usually keep up with the new hygiene tools and products that boast a more efficient use, but this one I just got the privilege of trying three days ago(thanks to my bf, who brought it home after I sent him to Walmart for new razors.*other brand) I've seen the roller ball key notes in adds for the Swirl and was surprised he also was excited to show me this highlight in a new razor from Gillette when he walked in the door. The specs on the packaging definitely passed the test on everything I normally look for in a razor so I was quick to jump in the shower right then to try it out ASAP! The handle is very ergonomical, with the same easy changing cartridge as previous Gillette razors. The cartridge itself has moisturizing strips to help maintain silky skin, along with FIVE blades for a smooth lasting shave.
I started out slow with my underarms and was very pleased I didn't have to go over them twice in some places because the roller ball did all the work for me. Once I gained confidence that this was indeed the jackpot of all razors I picked up the pace and continued on to my nether regions which were also a breeze without complaints. By the time I got to my legs I believe the moisture strips were a bit to slippery for my skin because the razor slipped sideways resulting in my first nick, thinking it was just my own loss of grip I kept going only to do it once more. I decided to slow it down, which of course helped me finish without any more injuries, leaving my legs with the smoothest shave I've ever experienced from a manual razor by far. And definitely one I would recommend to all with a precautionary warning "take your time" if you don't have an issue with dry skin as the razors provide slightly too much lubrication.
Due to one flaw area, that I happened to experience although a few of my friends who use this razor have not, I am sad to give this razor anything less than five stars.
. 🦄 Easy to grip and hold while wet
🦄 Don’t have to use a shaving cream with MoistureGuard Serum!
🦄The ball was great for shaving the back of my legs, which always have been a problem for me.
🦄 It would be really good for someone who is just trying to learn how to shave and to travel without shaving cream.
🦄 The design is really pretty and comfortable curved razor to use on my razors. .
I will post results after my first shave with this product.
🦄 My hair under my arms grew in 3 days with stubble and for my legs 4 days. It's not bad compared to the Dollar Shave Club Razors with the growth time but, it's bested by my metal Safety Razor with it's 5 day time period.
🦄 The blade isn't super sharp so, my hair under my arms grew back quickly (compared to my Safety Razor).
🦄 Blade was too big for my underarms so, I recommend this razor to be more for legs for coverage.
🦄 My legs feel super soft still and I haven't discovered any cuts from shaving.
🦄 After the first use, the MoistureGuard Serum on the curved razor was greatly reduced. Using a shaving cream might help with this. . .
*Influenster sent me this product complimentary for testing purposes, all opinions are my own!
I received this a Voxbox.
It glides so smoothly and effortlessly and really does not rust as quickly as the cheaper ones do. Considering this, I truly believe it is worth it to spend a little more $$ for the amazing quality you're getting. I don't think it could replace the entire use of shaving cream, which for some reason I thought it could, even though it was not advertised that way. So if anyone though the same, make sure you don't totally ditch the shaving cream.
