Review Of The Wilkinson Hydro 5

Why I usually use a wet shave option

Iremember when I was a boy and my father showed me how to shave for the very first time. It’s an emotional memory, I’ll keep forever in my mind. Back then, he explained the whole thing with a wet shave which might be the reason that I always did it like that. On the other hand, a wet shave just feels more complete and refreshing.

The reason I’m testing the Wilkinson Hydro 5

The consumer magazine Saldo recently reviewed 10 different razors, to find out which one is rated best. 15 men were testing on arguments like handling, comfort, result or cleaning. Further, an endurance test was conducted by different men to shatter its boundaries. At the end, the Wilkinson Hydro 5 was rated best. That made my curious how good it really is.

I tested the Wilkinson Hydro 5 for a few weeks

1) The Packing

Okay, it looks cool but it’s a bit complicated to open. However, this type of packing protects the blades and keeps them away from children.

2) Its Design

The Hydro 5 looks very sharp, I like the colours and the aerodynamic look. The material feels very comfortable and gentle.

3) My Shaving Experience

  • The 5 blades are super sharp, but still I didn’t cut myself at any time
  • Shaving feels super comfortable
  • The skin is smooth and without any irritations after the shave
  • Big thumps up for its endurance

The Features Of The Wilkinson Hydro 5

  • There is a flip-trimmer which is an amazing idea! It helps a lot to achieve the perfect lines for my beard. Easy to handle and very precise.
  • The Hydro 5 is easy to rinse
  • Its Gel Reservoir is an interesting innovation that keeps your skin smooth and moisty

What about the price?

EUR 7,45 for the shaver & 1 spare blade

EUR 16,95 for 8 blades (EUR 2,11 per piece)

That is a bit cheaper than its biggest competitor.

My resumé?

+Reasonable price, sexy design, a very comfortable result and a great persistency

-The packing

Would I buy it?

Yes, it’s a great product.
