When I got this razor I really liked it. It gives a great smooth shave. It has lots of blades so I don't get any nicks, as I am a terrible shaver and only like heads that will pivot a lot and razors that have lots of blades. This was great in every way the first time I used it. After the first time, there wasn't enough of the cream left to use it again. Without that the blades were tiny compared to the giant razor and I couldn't see what I was doing so I ended up cutting myself. It was awkward to use once all the cream stuff came off. That would be fine if I had used it a bunch of times, but it was after the first time of using it. If you were okay with buying a new cartridge every time that you shaved, this would be a great razor. I typically like to get at least 5 probably closer to ten times out of each set of blades- I don't mind a slightly dull razor and don't typically get cuts with my Schick Quattro. This razor would be a one time use for me and this is more expensive than a regular razor cartridge.
