Advantages: cheap, light
Disadvantages: harsh, cruel, painful
Having purchased other more expensive Gillette ladies razors I decided to give the more reasonably priced "Agilete" disposable razors a try.
How can I sum up their performance...mmm! a blunt spoon would have been more comfortable and equally as effective. Ok so they are not quite that bad and who should expect more form a disposable...me for one!
They are attractively packaged in a filmsy plastic tray that contains the 4 razors that come together as a pack. I can`t quite remember the exact price but I was something like £1.70 ish for the 4. This seemed a bargain as the new Venus razor was being flogged for £5.99!! They are a lovely pale lime green colour and are a twin blade coming with the usual safety sheild which was a pain to get off!
I usually manage to shave my legs easily whilst in the bath and so set about trying these new razors. The twin blades got a grip on the hairs not enough to cleanly turn my skin into pure silky,smoothness but with just enough pressure to hold them as they were ripped out individually taking some of the surface skin with them. OWWW!!!
I bravely continued, after all maybe I just hadn`t quite got the nack yet. No, nack had nothing to do with it they were just not going to allow me to have baby smooth skin.
Anyway, there I was having butchered my legs and thought, what the hell surely the armpits will be easy...NO!! I relived that delightful tingling feeling when you apply deodorant to freshly grated skin...MMM!! LOVELY
So here is a firm case for getting what you pay for.. if you buy cheap then that`s how they perform.
Having nursed my gooseflesh skin for a few days I have purchased a Wilkinson Sword Lady Protector Razor...lets see how much damaged I can do with that......review to follow soon
