Wilkinson Sword Hydro 3
Advantages: Good design, sharp blades, cheaper than competitors
Disadvantages: Blades although cheaper are still a bit pricey
I got my Hydro 3 blade razor in a promotional giveaway from Wilkinson Sword whilst at University. I wasn't really expecting much as I have always used Gillette razors and have found them to be more than adequate.
Anyway I tried the razor with the Wilkinson Sword Shaving Gel and was impressed with it. The Hydro 3 basically is the Wilkinson Sword equivalent of the Mach 3. The handle is quite weighty and doesn't feel cheap. It also looks quite good in the blue and silver colour scheme.
The blades are sharp and really long lasting. Even with a few days growth I didn't need to press on hard and drag the razor across my skin repeatedly.
I don't shave everyday and normally make blades last a long time anyway but even so the blades lasted a few months before becoming dull. The blades can be bought from all different shops and supermarkets and are slightly cheaper than the Mach 3.
Overall I would say that the Hydro 3 razor is a good razor and performed better than I expected. Whilst the blades are cheaper than the Mach 3 I still don't like having to pay nearly £6 for 4 blades which is why I switched back to using disposables.
Summary: Good performance razor
