I received a Gillette Fusion razor in the mail yesterday. Wow! Gillette really is give the razors away for free. I was disappointed that it only came with the one razor cartridge and no refills. I understand they want me to buy the “blades,” but I think a simple two pack would have given me more time to see if I liked it. They did include a $2.00 coupon for a razor cartridge pack.
Well, if you know me this means it’s time for a comparison. I have been using the same Gillette (Oops!) Trak II razor for over 14 years. Should I switch. We’ll see.
I normally just soap my face for a quick shave in the mornings. I will have to pick up some shaving gel this weekend. I want to give each razor the best chance possible. I may buy one Fusion refill pack so I can test them for an extended period of time. I normally go through one cartridge a week. If I buy just one 4 pack for the Fusion I can do my comparison for a month.
So, how will I compare. Simple, I will shave one side of my face with the Fusion and the other with the Trak II. I am mostly interested in which does a better job of minimizing the dreaded 5:00 shadow. Also, I want to see if anyone can notice, but I doubt it.
See you in a month to let you know the results.
