Bic Comfort 3 Pivot Razor
Advantages: A decent shave at this discounted price
Disadvantages: Garish Green colour
Well, I am now in my third mid-life crisis and with my salt and pepper hair now showing itself as more salt than pepper on my chinny chin chin(s), the thought has crossed my mind that I should ditch the razor and go for a full set.
White hair can be quite distinguished looking, but I'd rather go for a neatly trimmed beard than an Uncle Albert of 'Only Fools' fame. For as long as it takes me to make up my mind, I shall continue to shave and that means looking out for offers.
I bought this 4 pack of green Comfort 3 pivot disposable razors from BIC. The 4 pack was reduced in my local discount store to only £1 and was an impulse purchase.
Their lubricated strip contains aloe and Vitamin E. They are called Comfort 3 pivot disposable razors because they have a triple blade incorporated in the head which pivots and allows you to get close to the skin as you scrape it across your face.
Now we have all seen those graphics on the TV which seek to explain why we need multiple blades in our razors. It's all a bit odd to me. Surely if they had one sharp blade, it could get the job done. If I need 3, then Numbers 1 and 2 surely aren't up to much?
Anyway, for me, with a fairly light growth, a triple blade razor is fine and each of these lasts me about a week before needing to be thrown out. For the swarthier amongst us, I doubt whether these would last more than 2 or 3 shaves.
The razors are quite comfy to hold and the ribbed handle helps to make sure they don't slip. They are proficient at removing my stubble, whether it's a day's worth or sometimes 2 days' worth if I have a lazy weekend. It compares quite well with other similar disposables I have used in the past and with 2 of the 4 razors now used, I have yet to nick or cut my skin.
As with all disposables with the lubricated strips, the lubrication doesn't last more than a couple of shaves and it is more trouble than it is worth. As far as I am concerned, they can leave these strips off. If you use shaving cream, gel or foam which most men do, then these strips are superfluous.
Finally, a note to Marketing: - Nobody has a violent green bathroom and the garish colour is not popular with my wife. She'd much prefer it if you did a nice Cath Kidston floral version and she'd willingly pay three times the price!
Summary: Kind to your chin skin
