I shave my face and my head. Currently I'm unemployed, so unless there's a big event, like a job interview or a date, I only shave once per week. It's something of a chore, so I'm always on the lookout for something that might make it a bit easier to deal with. Normally I use a Mach 3 razor to get the job done. I had high hopes for this new razor from Remington, but despite the two extra blades, it does not measure up.
The main problem wit the razor is the bendy-neck thingy. It's a good concept, but it doesn't work very well in the real world. In order to get it effectively shave my, I had to support it with a finger against the back of the blade, which negated the point of having the flexible neck. This was a bigger problem on my face than my head.
The other problem is that it gets clogged with hairs very easily. That's something that happens to most razors, and one reason I use the Mach 3 is that it's very open in the back, so the hair is easy to rinse out. That's not the case here. Here, it's mostly open, but not entirely, so the areas to the left and right clogged up quickly.
Also from what I can tell, this razor was good for today's shave, and then I will probably need a new set of blades. They just didn't say sharp enough. Mach 3's last me for two sessions. This one managed only one.
This isn't a horrible razor. The result was pretty smooth, but not much better than a Mach 3. If you don't shave as much as I do, it might work out well for you. But for me, pass.
