Looks Can Be Decieving

Looks like any standard razor, but the flex really does help with the shaving! Plus, when used with the Alpine Clean shaving cream, it leaves a nice refreshed feeling! Its a great product, I have only had to replace the head once so far since I started using it a month ago! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This is definitely the cream of the crop of manual shavers. The FlexBall Technology is a great invention. The razor contours to all the bumps and curves of your face getting all those hard to reach areas because of how flexible and moveable the razor head is. This is a product I hadn't tried before this campaign but it's one I'll continue using now. Great Product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
