I began using Schick Razors years ago and have never felt the need to switch to another brand. I recently switched to this razor from Schick when I accidentally left my previous Schick razor in a hotel room while on vacation. I headed to my local pharmacy and saw that the razor I had been using was not in stock. So I looked at other Schick razors and this razor looked great on the shelf and I decided to give it a try. The handle is just the right length and fits perfectly in my hand. I am so happy that I choose this razor. I love it as much as I did my previous razor. This Schick Razor not only lived up to my expectations but it exceeded them. This razor gives an incredibly close shave. I have sensitive skin and frequently get red bumps from shaving. I do not experience any red bumps when using this razor. I also have not experienced any nicks or cuts while using this razor. The shave I get is incredibly close and my skin feels smooth and silky soft. This razor is also incredibly durable. I have dropped it a number of times in the shower and it does not break. The blades fell off but they are easy to re-attach.
