Change the blades often on your razor to keep it performing at its best. New blades will produce great results and fewer skin irritations. Gillette has a great selection of blades with different features. Most blades follow the contours of your face and are gentle to your skin as they don't shave you too close. Some have moisturising strips that protect the skin and make it extra soft. Some have a 5-blade system for a fantastically close and effective shave.
