Poor Micah’s face is all cut up and he suggested I put out a warning. He decided to go the generic route and buy the CVS razors which fit the Gillette Sensor handle. I’ve had pretty good luck with generic disposable razors, so he thought they were safe.
Well, not so much. He’s tried a few different blades over the last few days and none of them work. Each one just cuts up his face. It’s really pitiful.
I’m impressed that he thought to try the generic thing on his own. And I hope this won’t bias him against other generics. We’ve had some good and bad luck with them over the last few months.
So we’ll scratch razors off the list. Even if we found something decent, I don’t think Micah would want his face to be a testing ground. He’s been pretty miserable about it and he doesn’t like shaving anyway. What we need is a completely painless way to remove all the hair he’ll never use. And affordable to boot.
The question is, should he start shaving the more old-fashioned way? I don’t think that’d help with these razors but it may help with shaving in general.
Some exiting news coming on another generic front—but I’ll save that until I actually test it.
