Razor Test: Gillette Fusion vs. Excel

15012009192

I’m passionate about my Gillette Fusion Razor, which glides over my face using 4 blades at a time. And it looks very futuristic. Nice! I’m pleased to be in the company of Therry Henry, Roger Federer and the other guy.

But when I got up this morning at 15:43, with a slightly longer than usual 4 day stubble, I really needed a fresh replacement… which was not at hand. I DID have fresh blades for my slightly older Gillette Sensor Excel model with two blades, a trusty friend for many years (I skipped the Mach 3 generation btw). I hadn’t used the Excel for over a year now, so here’s my review for a side-by-side comparison of the two models:

Although very thorough with only two blades, the Sensor Excel does require a few more strokes than the absolutely radical Fusion. Not only does this cost a bit more time, it also irritates facial skin that bit more than what the Fusion would do. If you’re in the market for a new wet razor, you should look no further than the very hip and stylish Gillette Fusion.

I’m back on night shifts for four days (or nights rather) taking care of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, which is why my sleeping patterns are all over the place (or say, “currently in line with the US”).
