To me, there are few things better than a good shave. It allows me to feel both refreshed and rejuvenated. I understand how strange that sounds as I drag 5 blades across my neck, but it’s true. I was displeased with the popular and highly reviewed Gillette Fusion Proglide, so I began seeking a suitable replacement. Tired of the overpriced razors found in local drugstores, I expanded my search to the Internet. While many individuals I know have chosen to go with Dollar Shave Club, I was immediately attracted to Harry’s and their simple yet effective advertising. I was never fortunate enough to experience the old school barber shops, but I was instantly reminded of them and drawn to the nostalgic aspect of their brand. I decided to take a chance and placed my very first order.
The razor, blades and shaving cream all arrived in two separate boxes that were neatly packed and visually pleasing. As noted earlier, the overall presentation resembled that of an old school barber shop. It was simple, clean and professional. I placed my order on a Sunday and the items arrived in merely two days. This was well under the original timeframe for delivery. My wife and I have many items shipped to our home and this was undoubtedly the best service I have experienced in months.
I originally ordered the Winston set, which included the razor, 3 blades and one tube of shaving cream. I ultimately decided to include an additional tube of shaving cream and 12 blades.
Total Cost: $53 plus shipping and tax = $66.67 (Great bargain!)
In comparison to the Proglide, it would have cost me nearly double the amount if I stuck with Gillette products.
The Winston razor was modern, chic and very easy to handle. There was very minimal pull and absolutely no razor burn. As an individual with sensitive skin, this was a major relief. The only real drawback was the shaving cream. While the scent is pleasant and the cream itself contains many calming ingredients, I found that it does not lather well at all.
