One of the chores that we guys do is to shave our mustache (hair on the upper lip) as well as our beard (hair on the lower chin). I ought to make that as distinct as possible because I have some friends who use it interchangeably and I don’t think it’s right because the two are just different.
Anyway some PGG reader emailed me asking what shaver do I recommend that is durable, inexpensive and easy to refill?
Well as for me, I would recommend Gillette Vector Plus. It’s cheap (costs around 42 Pesos), it’s everywhere (so it’s easy to refill) and the blades are inexpensive costing around 40 Pesos for a pair. Based from experience, using the shaver is fast, easy and very gentle on the skin.
Though the Gillette Mach 3 is of course a top-of-the-line shaver, I would rather use the Gillette Vector Plus because it costs little and it’s durable. Mine is already more than a year and I’m just loving it because it is a Gillette Vector Plus World Cup Limited Edition – perfect for a soccer fan like me!
As for the shaving cream, I use Gillette Foamy Lime. Smells good, gentle on skin and costs less – 50 Pesos which is good for about 6 months (depending on frequency of use). What more could you ask for?
And to finish off my shaving session, I sometimes use an aftershave though not always. So how about you guys? What do you recommend? Anyone here using Schick or other Gillette variants?
