Maybe it was the batch I bought, but I learned long ago how to shave with minimal/ no cuts. With Gilette Good News, it seemed that every swipe of my face resulted in a slice. I was miffede. It didn't help. either, that my cat grew ever and ever more curious as my face filled up with blood splotches. I don't think Gillette is a bad company at all. I believe, however, they were VERY cost-concious when they manufactured this razor series. It is not a good one, and had I not tried a few of their other raors, I would be sworn off of anything with the Gillette brand name.
