I recently went to the launch of the new Gillette SkinGuard Sensitive Razor. The razor is  designed for men with sensitive skin and I was told it cuts hair at skin level so would avoid irritation. It has a unique Skin Guard positioned between the blade which helps protect the skin.


I have sensitive skin myself so this product sounded great and I just had to try it. I have always avoided the clean shave due to irritation of the skin. The Razor looks sleek and and is the perfect size for its function.


The first thing I noticed is how soft the blades are on the skin and even though there are only 2 blades it still gave a very close shave. Due to the spacing of the blades it avoided tugging of the hairs which meant less irritation on the skin. I felt it was easy to grip and control which allowed for better shaving. You can get the shave gel that goes with the razor which will help protect the skin during your shave and give you a cooling affect.


I have been using this for a few weeks now and would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially if you have sensitive skin. You can pick up the razor from £5 across stores in the UK.
