All of my hair grows thick and razors designed for women don’t give me smooth shaves. Therefore, I’ve always preferred using razors designed for men to shave. Men’s razors give me a closer shave than women’s razors, in my opinion. My brother has the same thick hair problems as me. Also, like me, his skin is also sensitive and he has to be very selective when it comes to what razors and shaving products he could use. For the past year, he has been having great results using Harry’s shaving system. So, when I got the chance to try Harry’s for myself, I had to see what all the hype was about.
In case you didn’t know, Harry’s makes high-quality razors and shaving products at a price point that’s very comparable with razors you pick up at your local retailers. They also offer shaving creams and balms to help the shaving process, but more on that in a minute.
Even though I mostly use men’s razors, I was still a little apprehensive about trying this system, because it might be a little “harsher” than disposable ones from the drugstore. I was so wrong.
Let’s start with the shaving creams. Harry’s offers a shaving cream and a foaming gel, which is ideal for oily skin. Both products are made with natural ingredients like aloe and cucumber, which helps to hydrate and soothe the skin. I tried the foaming gel, which instantly feels refreshing on your skin and I you don’t need a lot. The razor gently scooped through the foam and shaved away all the hair on my legs with ease. Harry’s razor heads have 5 sturdy razor blades, lubricating strip, and flex hinge that made it a breeze to maneuver around ankles other curves.
Finally, the cherry on top has to be the post shave balm. Although it smells very “manly”, like the other products, it’s not overwhelming. This balm is the bomb, because it helped soothe my skin after shaving. Plus, it helped minimize any redness and my skin felt super calm and smooth. It made me question why I’ve never used a post shave balm before. I don’t think I will be able to shave again without using a post shave balm.
In the end, I totally get why brother is obsessed with Harry’s razors and products. They make impeccable razors and rich and nourishing products. Not to mention, they are super convenient. You can order their products online, sign-up for their subscription service, or buy them at most Target locations. I can recommend enough that you give Harry’s a try!
