The Gillete Sensor Excel razor is one of the best razors I have ever used. Although teh replacement cartridges are some what pricey, I believe it is worth every penny to not have that awful razor burn after you shave. The Gilllette Sensor Excel razor allows you to be able to shave in both directions, and most ladies know that that is important when it comes to shaving areas like your armpits. It leaves your skin feeling so soft and it is very easy to use. The best part about the razors are that if you live with an individual who shaves their face and needs that sharp razor blade each time, you can use their razor blades a few more times to shave your legs with them before the blade gets dull and doesn't do a good job. I have used many different razors that are on the market for women, and nothing compares to the Gillette Razors. Another good thing about these razors are that they are sold almost anywhere. In my experience, I have not found that using the razors affects the hairgrowth, but it sure makes your legs smooth as a baby's butt. These razors are definitely a product everywoman should try at least once!
