Good Sense Vogue Disposable Razor

Once upon a time, I went on a quest. I was aided with some friends and an awesome coupon for some replacement blades for my Schick Hydro Silk. I went to the nearest NPC (that’s store for you non-gamer folks), but they didn’t even carry them. But did that stop me? No, it did not. In fact, I continued to quest, seeking grocers and provisioners all over the land. None of them had what I wanted, and the situation was quickly getting hairy (harhar), so I had to make due.

Thus, I bought a three-pack of Good Sense Vogue Disposable Razors. I figured it couldn’t hurt, and I had a bevvy of reasons:

  • They looked like regular razors
  • Each razor had five blades
  • They were cheap — $5

So, I figured that even if I hated it, it was only $5, and it would get me through until I could find the blades that I actually wanted. “How bad could it be,” I thought? Well, it was bad. Bad, you guys.

There’s no good sense about these razors by “Good Sense.” They’re designed to look like some of the more popular brands — with curves and contours rather than just straight angles — but it doesn’t function like that. Sure, there’s some sort of moisturizing agent, but it just feels gummy and clogs up the blades. The razor still drags against my skin anyway. The moisturizing strip also becomes ragged after several uses. It’s frustrating.

There may be five blades, but the shave is not close at all. This is problematic because I feel as though I have to shave  every day, which is frustrating. A close shave gives me a little leeway when it comes to having to shave the next time.

Finally, the disposable razor has a head with this insane amount of tilt. It’s too much. It doesn’t just follow the curves of my legs or body. Rather, it bends too far and I actually have a difficult time shaving some areas because this decreases the pressure that I need. I have to place my finger behind the head to get it to stay in place to shave.

All in all, this was $5 not well spent. At first, I thought that I could live with this purchase if it didn’t live up to my expectations, but that wasn’t the case. It was actually far worse than I ever could have anticipated.

Unfortunately, there are no real reviews of this product of any sort online, so I hope that this one will help anyone considering this purchase. Perhaps it’s a good thing that you can only buy Good Sense Vogue Disposable Razors by the case from Amazon. No one’s likely to spend upwards of $200 on a case of disposable razors. Phew!
